Jacob deGrom surrendered three runs in 5 2/3 innings while striking out 10 batters in a loss to the Nationals on Saturday.
He reached double digits in strikeouts for the second consecutive start but issued more free passes (six) than in his first three starts combined (four). He didn't seem eager to challenge Bryce Harper, walking him three times. DeGrom's ERA rose from 1.89 to 2.55 due to the three runs he allowed. It was his first loss of the season and he has yet to be credited with a win. He will face the Nationals again in his next start, scheduled for Friday in the nation's capital. Apr 22 - 8:44 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Jacob deGrom's next start has been pushed back a day to Saturday due to a stiff neck.

It sounds like the Mets are just being cautious here and deGrom should be fine. Matt Harvey will move up a day to start on regular rest Friday against the Nationals and Tanner Roark, while deGrom will face the Nats and Gio Gonzalez on Saturday.

Jacob deGrom allowed two earned runs, four hits and a walk with a career-high 13 strikeouts over seven innings in a no-decision Saturday in Miami.

DeGrom was sharp, but manager Terry Collins elected to lift the starter after 97 pitches in favor of his bullpen. Fernando Salas proceeded to cough up a three-run bomb in the bottom of the eighth to Christian Yelich, making the home run sculpture light up at Marlins Park. Collins cited the fact the team has three pitchers coming off surgery with his being careful with deGrom and not allowing him to go out for the eighth inning.
Apr 15 - 10:26 PM

Jacob deGrom held the Phillies to two runs over six innings in his start Monday.

DeGrom ended up with just three strikeouts, but he was able to get 12 swinging strikes and his stuff was fine. He has a 1.50 ERA and two no-decisions after two starts.
Apr 10 - 11:44 PM

Jacob deGrom blanked the Braves for six innings and struck out six on Wednesday.

DeGrom left with a 1-0 lead that was blown immediately by Hector Robles in the seventh. DeGrom has looked great since day one this year; better, in fact, that he did during any point of 2016. He's a fantasy ace.
Apr 5 - 11:13 PM

Jacob deGrom gave up four runs in 5 1/3 innings Sunday against the Marlins.

Apparently, de Grom wasn't quite ready for that sixth inning, considering that he threw just four in his previous spring start. He allowed one run over five today, but he retired just one of the four batters he faced in the sixth. He was charged with three runs then, taking his ERA from 0.90 before the game to 2.93 now.
Mar 19 - 5:22 PM

Jacob deGrom was sharp again Tuesday, allowing one run over four innings and striking out six against the Astros.

DeGrom seems back in 2015 form this spring after struggling some with his velocity early on and getting hurt last year. There's no guarantee that he'll remain healthy this time around, but judging from the early results, he should open the season as one of the NL's very best pitchers.
Mar 14 - 4:03 PM

Jacob deGrom struck out four in four scoreless innings Thursday against the Tigers.

DeGrom's velocity has been very good, and he's yet to allow a run in six innings this spring. It might be time to start thinking of him as a top-10 SP once again.
Mar 9 - 4:00 PM

Jacob deGrom turned in two scoreless innings while punching out three batters in a 3-1 win over the Astros on Saturday.

He did not allow a hit or a walk. This was his first game duty of the spring. He is being nursed back into action after missing the month of September last year due to elbow pain. He went 7-8 with a 3.04 ERA in 24 starts in 2016.
Mar 4 - 4:01 PM

Jacob deGrom has declared his elbow pain-free following his recovery from surgery last September to re-position his ulnar nerve.

DeGrom's season was cut short lst year by pain in his elbow and forearm. His last start came on September 1. He gave up 16 earned runs in his final three starts while battling the injury. As a result, he finished at 7-8 with a 3.04 ERA over 25 starts. He fanned 143 batters while walking only 36 in 148 innings. He's already throwing off a mound and is expected to participate fully in spring training. The real test will be pitching in games, but things are looking up for him going into 2017.
Feb 5 - 3:27 PM

Mets and RHP Jacob deGrom avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.05 million contract.

ESPN New York's Adam Rubin notes that it's a record for a first-time eligible starting pitcher who didn't pitch enough innings the previous season to qualify for the ERA title. DeGrom had surgery in September to repair ulnar nerve damage in his right elbow, but he's not expected to be limited in spring training.
Jan 13 - 3:59 PM

Jacob deGrom (elbow) said Friday that he's close to beginning a throwing program.

DeGrom had surgery in September to repair ulnar nerve damage in his right elbow. He added Friday that he's feeling much better than he did pre-op, as he's now able to snap his fingers without discomfort. DeGrom is not expected to be limited at the beginning of spring training.

Jacob deGrom underwent successful surgery to repair ulnar nerve damage in his right arm on Wednesday.

This officially puts deGrom's 2016 season to rest. In 148 frames, the 28-year-old right-hander pitched to a 3.04 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 143/36 K/BB ratio. Barring setbacks in his rehab, deGrom should be ready to roll come spring training of 2017.

Jacob deGrom will undergo season-ending surgery later this week to repair ulnar nerve damage in his right arm.

As previously speculated. The right-hander has been experiencing arm trouble since August and wound up making just one start in September (on September 1 against the Marlins) for the Wild Card-hunting Mets. He finishes with a 3.04 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 143/36 K/BB ratio over 148 innings. If the Mets make the postseason, they'll probably be working with a patchwork starting rotation. But that's been their situation for a while now.

Jacob deGrom (elbow) has been scratched from Sunday's start against the Twins and likely needs surgery.

He's been having trouble with the ulnar nerve in his right elbow. The surgery would obviously sideline him for the rest of 2016, though it shouldn't affect his availability for spring training. DeGrom logged 216 innings between the playoffs and regular season last year and that seemed to take a toll on him in 2016. It's a miracle the Mets are still in the postseason hunt with all the injuries they've had this season. Gabriel Ynoa will start in deGrom's place Sunday against Minnesota.
