Players To Watch
Without question. Every time he takes the mound, it’s a must-see, not only because of his great pitching but how hard he throws. Syndergaard didn’t reach 100 mph in his last start Monday and had a few struggles but he still struck out nine in 6 2/3 innings. That’s how dominant, he can truly be. Going against Bumgarner will be something and a chance to prove that he can beat an elite starter as he continues to mature.
One of the biggest surprises in this early season. Don’t get me wrong. Walker has always been a solid hitter with some power but he definitely has not gone through a stretch like this power wise. Walker already has nine home runs. Last year. he didn’t hit his ninth home run until the end of July. Walker probably won’t continue this pace but as long as he’s hot, he is also a must watch.
The star catcher has relatively gotten off to a slow start for his standard, batting .264 with three home runs and seven RBIs. However, he’s still S.F.’s most premier hitter and the one the Mets have to look out for. He always has power and hits well with runners on.
