The New York Mets have become one of the best teams in MLB thanks in large part to their pitching. Edwin Diaz has been as lights out as they come as a close and Jacob deGrom has re-joined a staff that has been strong all season.

Although deGrom has been his usual dominant self, his pitch repertoire is a bit different. Mets manager Buck Showalter pointed out a key similarity with his two superstar hurlers. He said that deGrom and Diaz both utilize a fastball-slider combo to generate strikeouts and help New York win, according to Will Sammon of The Athletic.
