MLB Saturday Stat Insights: Mets vs Diamondbacks, Trevor Williams & Humberto Castellanos
Right-hander Trevor Williams is expected to start today for New York, while right-hander Humberto Castellanos gets the nod at home for Arizona. Williams enters this contest with a 0.00 ERA, backed up by a 1.86 FIP (which is a better measure of the things a pitcher can control). The last time Williams was on the bump, the Mets lost to the Nationals 4-3. He left allowing 2 earned runs and recording 3 strikeouts with 2 walks. Castellanos's last start was against the Mets, when the D-Backs lost 5-0. Over 4 innings pitched, he allowed 0 earned runs with 1 hit. He also recorded 1 strikeout with 3 walks.

The Mets offense projects to score the 3rd-most runs on the day's slate.
Low humidity has a small but significant correlation with less offense (and more strikeouts), and this game projects for the least humid conditions of all games on the slate today at 6%.
Chase Field sits at the 5th-highest altitude in MLB. High elevation usually leads (as a rule of thumb) to more offense.
Chase Field has the 3rd-most foul ground among all parks — that means fewer foul balls, shorter at-bats, and ultimately more outs for starting pitchers.
