New York Mets vs San Francisco Giants Match Preview and Free Picks

The trading of Andrew McCutchen to the New York Yankees opened up a spot for top prospect Chris Shaw, who will receive a long look from the San Francisco GIants over the final month of the season. Shaw again is expected to be in the lineup against the visiting New York Mets on Saturday after going 0-for-2 with an RBI in his major-league debut in the series opener.

Shaw, the 31st overall pick of the 2015 draft, hit 24 homers in 101 games for Triple-A Sacramento this season, but Giants manager Bruce Bochy wants to minimize expectations on the 24-year-old lefthanded-hitting outfielder. "I don't want him coming up trying to hit home runs," Bochy said prior to Friday's 7-0 victory. "Just try to hit the ball hard. I don't want to put that pressure on him.

He's a hitter. It's only going to get better with him. This will give him a chance to see what he has to face up here." San Francisco has won five of its last six contests after prevailing in the opener of the three-game set, while the Mets lost for the fourth time in five games. The Mets recorded just three hits while being blanked for the second time in five contests and went 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position.
