Jacob deGrom yielded three earned runs over 7 1/3 innings Monday in a no-decision versus the Nationals.
He struck out 12 and issued just one walk, but Bryce Harper popped deGrom for a solo shot in the top of the first inning and the right-hander allowed a couple of singles before exiting in the top of the eighth -- what became a six-run frame for Washington. The loss went to A.J. Ramos, with deGrom remaining 2-0 with a 3.24 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 30/6 K/BB ratio in 25 total frames this season. He'll face the Braves on the road next. Apr 16 - 10:46 PM

Jacob deGrom gave up four runs over six innings Tuesday versus the Marlins.

It was disappointing that deGrom came away with the no-decision in a very winnable game tonight. He beat better teams (the Cardinals and Nationals) in his first two starts, but he was undone by one bad inning in this one; all four runs scored in the fifth.
Apr 10 - 10:42 PM

Jacob deGrom moved to 2-0 after holding the Nationals to two runs -- one earned -- over six innings on Thursday.

He issued three walks and gave up four hits but struck out five as the Mets won 8-2 in the Nationals' home opener. The right-hander boasts a 1.54 ERA and 12 strikeouts through his first 11 2/3 innings this season. A road start against the Marlins is next.
Apr 5 - 4:13 PM

Jacob deGrom was outstanding in Saturday's victory over the Cardinals, racking up seven strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball.

The Mets' hurler scattered four hits and a walk on the afternoon. The only damage against him came on a two-out RBI single by Jose Martinez in the fourth inning. He'll draw another difficult assignment his next time out, taking on the Nationals in their home opener on Thursday in Washington.
Mar 31 - 4:33 PM

Jacob deGrom was perfect for three innings and struck out four against the Mets on Monday.

DeGrom got the start for the Las Vegas 51s in this one. In spite of his early back woes, he's all lined up to start the second game of the regular season.
Mar 26 - 3:43 PM

Jacob deGrom dominated the Orioles on Friday, striking out eight in five scoreless innings in what turned out to be a 4-4 tie.

DeGrom allowed just one hit and walked none. A back problem has had his status for the beginning of the season in question for much of the spring, but he's already all caught up now.
Mar 16 - 5:40 PM

Jacob deGrom (back) is lined up to start the Mets' second regular-season game on March 31 against the Cardinals.

Noah Syndergaard will take the ball on Opening Day. That likely would have been deGrom's assignment, but he got off to a late start this spring because of a back injury that has proven to be relatively minor. The 29-year-old right-hander posted a 3.53 ERA and a career-high 239 strikeouts over a career-high 201 1/3 innings last season.
Mar 13 - 4:32 PM

Jacob deGrom (back) allowed two earned runs over 2 2/3 innings Sunday in his Grapefruit League debut against the Astros.

The most important thing here is that deGrom had no issues with his back. He struck out all three batters he faced in the top of the first inning before running into some trouble in the top of the second. The 29-year-old right-hander will try to get stretched out enough over the next three weeks to make his regular-season debut in the Mets' second or third series.
Mar 11 - 3:19 PM

Jacob deGrom (back) is scheduled to make his Grapefruit League debut on Sunday.

The right-hander has been slowed by a back injury for the past couple of weeks, but he reported feeling strong on Wednesday after throwing 30 pitches in a two-inning simulated game on Tuesday. He can probably be ruled out for Opening Day, but deGrom should be stretched out enough to make his regular-season debut during the Mets' second or third series. The 29-year-old posted a 3.53 ERA and a career-high 239 strikeouts over a career-high 201 1/3 innings last season.
Mar 7 - 2:33 PM

Jacob deGrom (back) threw about 30 pitches over two innings in a simulated game on Tuesday.

Assuming deGrom feels good, the next step will be a Grapefruit League start, likely on Sunday. It's probably a stretch to expect him to be ready for an Opening Day assignment, but there's no reason to rush things when he could be on track a few days later. The most important thing is that his back feels fine. Noah Syndergaard figures to pitch the opener for New York.
Mar 6 - 12:02 PM

Jacob deGrom (back) will throw a simulated game Tuesday.

DeGrom wound up throwing a bullpen session instead of live batting practice Sunday but will face hitters in a couple days. He should be cleared for his Grapefruit League debut as long as Tuesday's simulated game goes off without a hitch. DeGrom said Sunday that his back feels fine, but it's possible he might not have quite enough time to get ready for Opening Day.
Mar 4 - 11:22 AM

Jacob deGrom (back) will throw a bullpen session rather than live batting practice Sunday.

DeGrom said Sunday that his back feels fine and he expressed surprise that he was cleared only for a bullpen session. The right-hander's injury doesn't appear to be a big deal at this point, but it might be tough for him to get ready in time for Opening Day. DeGrom could be ready for his first turn in the rotation after the regular season begins, it just might not be the first game.
Mar 4 - 9:42 AM

Jacob deGrom (back) will throw live batting practice Sunday.

The thought was that maybe deGrom would make his Grapefruit League debut Sunday after he threw a bullpen session Friday, but he'll toss live BP first. If he gets through that with no issues, the right-hander will be thrown into game action next week. DeGrom has been slowed early on in camp by a back injury.
Mar 2 - 3:52 PM

Jacob deGrom (back) threw a bullpen session without issue on Friday.

He's slated to throw again Sunday, although it's unclear whether it will be a live batting practice session or his Grapefruit League debut. DeGrom entered Mets camp with some back soreness, but it's not viewed as a big deal and he's fully expected to be ready to roll come Opening Day.
Mar 2 - 10:08 AM

Mets pitching coach Dave Eiland expects Jacob deGrom (back) to be ready for the first week of the regular season.

"I’m not going to sit here and tell you what game he’s going to pitch," said Eiland. "But we're optimistic he can be ready." DeGrom encountered lower back stiffness early in camp but has already resumed throwing and should be ready for New York's opening series against the Cardinals, which gets underway on March 29. The 29-year-old logged a 3.53 ERA over a career-high 201 1/3 innings last season.
