Tylor Megill black uniform changeup grip

Tylor Megill black uniform changeup grip

With the Mets starting rotation decimated with injuries early, they got desperate.

On June 23, they turned to Tylor Megill for what they probably thought would just be for a spot start.

He then stuck around for the remainder of the season, turning in 18 starts.

In his first seven, he allowed just eight earned runs in 35.1 innings (2.04 ERA). He finished the season with a 4.52 ERA, but with all the injuries the rotation suffered, he remained a constant, despite making just three starts in Triple-A before getting the call.

“There’s not much I can do with the situation I was brought in,” Megill told Mets’ social media host Mike Janela on the team’s YouTube channel. “I was just there, taking it as I can, just go out there.”

It was an up-and-down rookie season, but the 26-year-old finally got to live out the dream.

“It was exciting. I mean, lots of fun, great experience,” Megill said, “Never thought it would come this early, but I had a great time, and I’m taking what I learned and just getting ready for the next season.”

Megill came up earlier than he expected, and likely earlier than the Mets wanted. With that came some growing pains, especially when going up against the best of the best.

“You have to be able to be on you’re A-game every pitch,” said Megill. “Make a mistake, something happens, and you pay for it. Just be on top of your game every pitch, and go out and execute your game plan.”

Even with Max Scherzer coming to Queens, Megill can certainly be a rotation option for 2022, and he knows exactly what to work on.

“Just really crunching down on making those quality pitches in certain counts and not throwing waste pitches, like slider off the dish nowhere near the strike zone, it’s just a waste pitch, when in reality, you want a good competitive strike or ball or something that they might chase and what not,” he said. “Just being aware of the situations and counts and how the game’s moving.”
