The Mets bats will get a glimpse of flamethrower rookie Hunter Greene tonight. His fastball sits at 99 and frequently exceeds 100 (check his Baseball Savant page for more info!). He’s made 15 starts in 74 innings this season with a 5.72 ERA, 5.53 FIP, 1.338 WHIP and 82+ ERA. He also allowed a league to run 20 homers. In his last three starts, he has allowed 15 runs, 13 earned, in 14 innings (8.36 ERA). So, at the end of the day, today will be the story of power throwing versus power hitting.
