Matchups 7/1

Statistics for current Diamondbacks against Shaun Marcum are here.

Good figures overall, with a slash of .302/.353/.460. It will be nice, after the pitchers faced recently, to face someone who several guys have had success against. Jason Kubel has the most plate appearances, with 15, but has gone only 4 for 14 in those at bats. Aaron Hill and Cody Ross are the only D-Backs who have faced him and not come away with a hit (3 plate appearances for each, Hill did draw a walk.) Martin Prado is only 2 for 9 career against Marcum, so he might get the day off, although that's not really bad enough to warrant a benching. Miguel Montero and Paul Goldschmidt own home runs off Marcum, and Goldschmidt had a big game the last time he faced Marcum: 2 for 3, a home run, and 5 RBI.

Few current Mets have faced Wade Miley, and two of them are pitchers. Statistics here. In 27 plate appearances, the slash of .250/.296/.375 is respectable, but take away Matt Harvey's 2 for 2 with a double and Dillon Gee's 0 for 2 and that adjusts to .200/.261/.300. Advantage here clearly goes to Miley, although small sample size does apply. Then again, heading into last week's start against the Nationals, the numbers worked against Miley, and he turned in a quality start. Numbers don't mean everything. Daniel Murphy is the only current Met who Miley will actually face that has multiple hits against him.
