Rested Syndergaard Should Scare Reds

Noah Syndergaard will get the start for the New York Mets when they start a series against the Cincinnati Reds Monday and Thor will be doing so with plenty of rest. Syndergaard, who will be coming into the game with six days rest thanks to Jacob deGrom’s return to the lineup last week, has posted a career 2.62 ERA with six days rest vs 3.18 with fewer.

Shark Bites
  • The Mets are 11-2 in their past 13 games against the Reds, which includes all seven last season.
  • The Reds are 5-22 SU in their past 27 games as underdogs.
  • Noah Syndergaard is 2-0 with a 1.72 ERA in two career starts against the Reds.

The Reds will counter Syndergaard with Raisel Iglesias who has been solid this season. The Cuban pitcher has posted a 3.09 ERA with a 22/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio in four starts.

The Mets enter this series as winners of six of their past seven, though five of those wins came against bottom-feeders in the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies. Neil Walker’s addition to the lineup has proven to be well worth it for the Mets, as the second baseman has gone 10-for-25 with five runs and four home runs in the past six games.
