The Mets rotation this year is going to be an interesting one. Four of the five Mets starters are slated to be there for the entire season, with Carlos Carrasco being the only question mark.
- Jacob deGrom
- Marcus Stroman
- Carlos Carrasco (When he returns)
- David Peterson
- Taijuan Walker
- Joey Lucchesi (Until Carrasco returns)
Jacob deGrom 20-6 2.33 ERA 288 K’s 0.951 WHIP
Marcus Stroman 14-12 3.49 ERA 225 K’s 1.199 WHIP
Carlos Carrasco 10-8 3.52 ERA 174 K’S 1.201 WHIP
David Peterson 13-8 3.22 ERA 194 K’s 1.155 WHIP
Taijuan Walker 12-11 3.68 ERA 190 K’s 1.245 WHIP
Joey Lucchesi 2-3 5.33 ERA 67 K’s 1.422 WHIP
The Mets rotation looks good. I think getting Carrasco back will help a lot, and will add to an already good rotation. Predicting pitcher stats is probably the most difficult thing to do, so take these with a grain of salt. That is another reason as to why I am not going to do reliever predictions, because those are even more challenging.
