Mets manager Terry Collins on Sunday said the club has discussed the possibility of bringing back Jacob deGrom on short rest to start Game 4 of the NLDS.

They would consider it only if they're trailing in the series and likely only if Steven Matz (back) is unable to go. The other option for Game 4 if Matz isn't healthy is Bartolo Colon. If deGrom starts Game 4, Noah Syndergaard would get the ball in Game 5.

Manager Terry Collins said Jacob deGrom will be the Mets' starter for Game 1 of the NLDS against the Dodgers.

He was the obvious choice with Matt Harvey expected to be held back until Game 3. DeGrom owns the majors' fifth lowest WHIP (0.99) and the sixth lowest ERA (2.60). Last season's NL Rookie of the Year is 0-2 with a 3.66 ERA in three career starts against the Dodgers.

Jacob deGrom tossed six innings of one-run ball and also knocked in two runs with the bat as the Mets beat the Reds on Sunday.

deGrom scattered five hits, walking none and striking out nine in the effort. The Reds' lone run came in his final inning, when Joey Votto hit an RBI single. deGrom contributed on offense, knocking in two runs with a single in the third innings. The right-hander will head into his final start at home against the Nationals with a 2.60 ERA, a 0.99 WHIP, and a 198/36 K/BB ratio over 187 innings.

Mets manager Terry Collins indicated Tuesday that Jacob deGrom will start Sunday in Cincinnati.

The right-hander was skipped on his last turn through the rotation as a way to manage his workload ahead of the postseason. He boasts a 2.64 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and 189/36 K/BB ratio in a career-high 181 innings this year.
Sep 22 - 4:05 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins announced Saturday that Jacob deGrom will have his next start pushed back.

Collins had been scheduled to work on Tuesday. The Mets believe that some extra rest will help him heading into the postseason. The right-hander has already logged a career-high 181 innings this year and was knocked around by the Marlins his last time out. He owns a sparkling 2.64 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 189/36 K/BB ratio on the season.
Sep 19 - 10:56 AM

Jacob deGrom was hammered for six runs over five innings in a loss versus the Marlins on Tuesday.

The Marlins rallied for three runs in each of the fourth and fifth innings. DeGrom allowed 10 hits in total, striking out five while walking none. The outing sends his ERA up to 2.64 along with a 0.99 WHIP and a 189/36 K/BB ratio over 181 innings. Still outstanding numbers for deGrom, who will attempt to rebound next week at home against the Braves.
Sep 15 - 10:43 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Thursday that the team won't skip Jacob deGrom this month.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Wednesday that they'd like to skip deGrom if they can down the stretch, but Collins says they might just push back one of his turns in the rotation. It might just be a matter of semantics. Either way, deGrom remains on track to make his next start Tuesday against the Marlins.
Sep 10 - 4:08 PM

Jacob deGrom earned his 13th win, pitching seven innings of two-run ball to beat the Nationals on Wednesday.

deGrom was out-dueled by Stephen Strasburg over the first seven innings, but the Nats' right-hander faltered in the eighth to put the Mets' right-hander in line for the win. deGrom gave up five hits and two walks while striking out nine. The runs came on a Bryce Harper solo home run in the first inning and a Clint Robinson RBI single in the fourth. He now carries a 2.40 ERA with a 0.97 WHIP and a 184/36 K/BB ratio over 176 innings. The Marlins will take their swings against him at Citi Field in his next start.
Sep 9 - 9:55 PM

Jacob deGrom supplied a quality start in a Friday no-decision against the Marlins, allowing three runs on nine hits over six innings.

As you might be able to guess from the nine hits deGrom surrendered, he lacked his best stuff on Friday. The Marlins scored all three of their runs on his line in the fourth inning, when they burned him with a pair of RBI singles and a sacrifice fly. He'll carry a 2.40 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 175/34 K/BB ratio across 169 innings into his next start, a road contest with the Nationals.
Sep 4 - 11:10 PM

Jacob deGrom struck out 10 batters over six innings but took a loss Saturday against the Red Sox.

He was cruising until the top of the sixth, when Mookie Betts singled, Pablo Sandoval hit an RBI double, Travis Shaw drew a walk, and Brock Holt hit into a fielder's choice that drove in Boston's second run. It was a rare hiccup for deGrom, who stands 12-7 with a 2.32 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and 171/34 K/BB ratio in 163 innings this season. He'll face the Marlins on the road next week.
Aug 29 - 7:06 PM

Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports that Jacob deGrom was dealing with food poisoning during his start on Monday.

It's helps explain why he pitched uncharacteristically poorly, yielding seven runs -- six earned -- in 2 2/3 innings. DeGrom had an IV on Tuesday and is feeling much better. He'll be fine for his next outing.
Aug 26 - 3:52 PM

Jacob deGrom lucked out with a no-decision as the Mets beat the Phillies on Monday despite his allowing seven runs (six earned) in 2 2/3 innings.

The Phillies were hitting everything the right-hander was throwing. Ryan Howard punished him with a three-run opposite-field home run in the first inning. Cameron Rupp hit a tape-measure solo homer to the bullpens in center field, and Domonic Brown laced a three-run shot in the third inning. DeGrom, overall, yielded eight hits and three walks while striking out three. It did a number on his ERA, raising it from 1.98 to 2.29. He still has an excellent 0.94 WHIP with a 161/32 K/BB ratio over 157 innings. DeGrom will try to rebound at home against the Red Sox in his upcoming outing.
Aug 24 - 11:35 PM

Jacob deGrom earned his 12th win, limiting the Orioles to one run in 7 2/3 innings on Tuesday.

The only blip on deGrom's record was a sixth-inning Gerardo Parra solo home run. He scattered five hits and a walk while striking out six. The effort lowered his ERA to 1.98 along with a sterling 0.89 WHIP and a 158/29 K/BB ratio over 154 1/3 innings. DeGrom is in the NL Cy Young conversation and will try to bolster his case next week when he faces the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.
Aug 18 - 10:55 PM

Jacob deGrom blanked the Rockies for seven innings, striking out 10, in a victory Wednesday.

DeGrom allowed a double and a single before Tyler Clippard and Jeurys Familia finished up the three-hitter. It was his fourth 10-strikeout game of the year, and he's fanned at least seven in six straight starts, all of which have been won by the Mets.
