Jacob deGrom improved to 7-6 on the year after giving up an unearned run over six innings in Friday's 4-1 win over the Phillies.
The only run scored in his final inning of work following a throwing error by Lucas Duda. The game was tied before the Mets rallied for three runs without a hit in the bottom of the seventh. DeGrom limited the Phillies to four hits and two walks while notching five strikeouts. Back to full health and rocking a 2.94 ERA over 18 starts, the 26-year-old is gaining momentum as a candidate for the National League Rookie of the Year Award. Aug 29 - 9:53 PM

Jacob deGrom was rocked for five earned runs in six innings Saturday in a loss to the Dodgers.

DeGrom was pretty good through the first three frames but seemed to run out of gas late in his first start since being diagnosed August 11 with right rotator cuff tendinitis. The 26-year-old allowed two runs in the fourth and then three in the fifth. He watched his ERA rise from 2.87 to 3.13.

Mets activated RHP Jacob deGrom from the 15-day disabled list.

The 26-year-old right-hander is starting for the Mets on Saturday night against the Dodgers after missing a couple weeks with rotator cuff tendinitis. He owns an excellent 2.87 ERA and 94/33 K/BB ratio in 100 1/3 innings this season as a rookie.

Jacob deGrom (shoulder) will be activated and start Saturday against the Dodgers.

Everything has gone well with deGrom's recovery from rotator cuff tendinitis. His return will be welcomed by fantasy owners, as the 26-year-old is 6-5 with a 2.87 ERA and 94/33 K/BB ratio over 100 1/3 innings thus far this season.

Jacob deGrom (shoulder) is on pace to rejoin the Mets' rotation on Saturday versus the Dodgers.

DeGrom threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Sunday morning with no issues. He'll throw off the mound again in the middle of this week, potentially clearing the way for his return next weekend. The young right-hander has been out with rotator cuff tendinitis. "We were just seeing how it felt," deGrom said about Sunday's session. "I threw changeups when I was playing catch, and those felt fine. Either Tuesday or Wednesday I'll throw everything."

Jacob deGrom (shoulder) should be ready to begin throwing off a mound Sunday.

DeGrom has been out since August 8 with right rotator cuff tendinitis. He threw from flat ground Saturday with no issues and the hope is that he'll be ready to rejoin the Mets' rotation when first eligible on August 24.
Aug 16 - 4:12 PM

Jacob deGrom (shoulder) said Tuesday that he's already feeling better.

DeGrom was placed on the disabled list with rotator cuff tendinitis, but he's taking anti-inflammatories and receiving physical therapy and has already noticed improvement. "I already feel a lot better with just the couple of days' rest that I've had [compared to] doing the tests the other day at the hospital," deGrom said. "My strength is a lot better than when I first did them." The right-hander is hopeful of missing just two starts and returning on August 24 when first eligible.
Aug 12 - 9:54 PM

Mets placed RHP Jacob deGrom on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 8, with right rotator cuff tendinitis.

The Mets will put deGrom on anti-inflammatories and the hope is that he could be ready to rejoin the rotation when he's first eligible in two weeks. In other words, it's not viewed as serious. Rafael Montero has been called up from Triple-A Las Vegas and will take his place in the starting rotation.

Jacob deGrom will be placed on the disabled list with right rotator cuff tendinitis.

It's good news under the circumstances. The rookie right-hander will presumably rest for a few days before being re-evaluated. The Mets will call up Rafael Montero to take his place in the starting rotation.
Aug 11 - 4:03 PM

Jacob deGrom has been sent back to New York to undergo an MRI after feeling soreness in his right shoulder.

Well, that's no good. DeGrom last pitched on Thursday and the soreness started to crop up a couple days later. It appears the Mets will hold off placing him on the disabled list for now, as they hope it's just a one-start absence. Ultimately, they figure to play things safely with the youngster even though deGrom doesn't think it's a serious injury. Carlos Torres could make a spot start Tuesday if deGrom misses just one start, or the Mets could look to Jesus Montero or Noah Syndergaard if the absence will be longer.
Aug 10 - 11:52 AM

Jacob deGrom yielded three runs in six innings Thursday in a no-decision versus the Nationals.

Even deGrom's worst outing in a month still rates as a quality start. He had allowed a total of four runs over 34 2/3 innings in his previous five turns.
Aug 7 - 5:23 PM

Jacob deGrom pitched seven and one-third innings of two-run ball in New York's win over the Giants on Saturday.

Both deGrom and Giants starter Jake Peavy were tossing dueling no-hitters through the middle innings, but neither man secured their place in immortality. Pablo Sandoval doubled in the top of the seventh to break up deGrom's shot at the no-no. DeGrom ended up the winner in this one, striking out seven and allowing just four hits. He's now 6-5 with a 2.77 ERA.
Aug 3 - 12:02 AM

The Mets have set an innings cap for Jacob deGrom this season at around 185.

That means he has roughly 59 2/3 frames to go, or about 10 starts if he averages six innings per outing. DeGrom is in line for 11 more starts if he pitches every five days, so he could either be skipped over once or shut down a bit early. It's not a major concern, and Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Monday that the club isn't considering giving deGrom a break anytime soon. "So I think we have a couple of different ways of approaching that," Alderson said. "Now, I don’t think we want to interrupt the flow that he has going, the success he’s had."
Jul 28 - 6:18 PM

Jacob deGrom earned his fourth straight win on Sunday, holding the Brewers scoreless over 6 1/3 innings of work.

DeGrom gave up four hits and walked two in the outing, striking out four. He's now 4-0 in his last four starts, allowing just two runs over 27 1/3 innings. The right-hander owns a 2.79 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 83/31 K/BB ratio in 87 innings this year, and he should be owned in all mixed leagues at this point. DeGrom takes on the Giants on Saturday in search of his fifth straight victory.
Jul 27 - 6:17 PM

Jacob deGrom threw seven innings of one-run ball against the Mariners to pick up his fourth win on Tuesday.

Jacob deGrom tossed a third straight gem on Tuesday, striking out seven and walking just one over seven frames. It's the sixth straight start in which deGrom has not allowed more than three runs. In the process, he's dropped his ERA to 3.01. This is also the third straight start in which deGrom's gone seven innings. If he can keep lasting deep into games, he'll continue to provide nice strikeout and ERA boosts. He'll square off with the Brewers next time out.
