Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 45 | Slider: 55 | Control: 50 | Overall: 40

A 40th-round pick in the 2015 Draft out of Stony Brook, Zamora was moved from the rotation to bullpen upon entering Pittsburgh's season and had already experienced success at the Double-A level when the Mets acquired him for Josh Smoker in January '18. He made his Mets organizational debut several months later at Double-A Binghamton, where he earned Eastern League All-Star honors before his first big league callup in August.

Though he has two pitches at his disposal, Zamora is largely a one-pitch reliever, throwing his slider about 79 percent of the time from a nearly sidearm slot. The extreme usage speaks to the pitch's effectiveness, as its high spin rate and hard downer action nets Zamora whiffs on both sides of the plate. His four-seam fastball averaged only 89 mph across his 16 appearances with the Mets, albeit with late sinking action.

Zamora fared better against right-handed hitters (.157/.224/.243) than he did lefties (.240/.310/.404) in 2018. Those reverse splits highlight Zamora's potential as a situational reliever whose usage likely will be dictated by the situation.
