Jacob deGrom tossed eight scoreless innings Saturday against the Braves but didn't factor in the decision.
DeGrom and Braves starter Julio Teheran matched zeroes all night, as the game wasn't decided until the 11th inning. DeGrom scattered seven hits and a walk while striking out six. He's now rattled off six straight quality starts to lower his ERA to 2.67 with a 1.12 WHIP and 77/19 K/BB ratio. Despite that, he still hasn't earned a win since April 30. The right-hander will seek a better fate Thursday against the Cubs. Jun 25 - 10:54 PM

Jacob deGrom turned in a quality start in Sunday's loss to the Braves, yielding three runs on five hits over six innings.

Ender Inciarte and Nick Markakis both notched RBI singles off deGrom in the third inning. Markakis would burn him again with a solo home run in the sixth inning. The birthday boy (he turned 28 on Sunday) struck out six and walked one on the afternoon. He will carry a 2.96 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 71/18 K/BB ratio (73 innings) into a road start against these same Braves next time out. He has lost each of his last three decisions.

Jacob deGrom struck out nine while holding the Pirates to two runs over six frames but was saddled with a loss Tuesday.

DeGrom was good, giving up six hits and walking one, with the lone blemish being a two-run homer by Jung Ho Kang. However, youngster Jameson Taillon was simply better. DeGrom velocity remains down a tick, but he's struck out 28 over his last three starts. He gets the Braves this weekend.
Jun 14 - 9:48 PM

Jacob deGrom punched out nine, but wound up on the losing end of the decision on Tuesday night as the Mets lost both games of a doubleheader against the Pirates.

The right-hander allowed three runs on six hits over his six frames and didn't walk a batter. The Pirates scratched out a pair of runs in the second inning, then tacked on an insurance run in the fifth on an RBI double by John Jaso. DeGrom will look to get back in the win column when he brings a 2.80 ERA and 1.15 WHIP into a rematch against these Pirates at home on Tuesday.

Jacob deGrom tossed seven innings of one-run ball Wednesday in a no-decision against the White Sox.

Chicago won it in 13 innings, long after deGrom and White Sox starter Miguel Gonzalez had departed the game. DeGrom struck out 10 and walked just two. The one run he allowed came on a seventh-inning homer by Todd Frazier.
Jun 1 - 6:00 PM

Jacob deGrom shined Friday against the Dodgers by tossing seven innings of one-run ball.

DeGrom was in line for the win before Jeurys Familia coughed up the lead in the ninth. Regardless, it was his best start of the season. He held the Dodgers to just three hits, with the lone run scoring on a sacrifice fly by Chase Utley in the third inning. Showing improved velocity, he struck out seven and walked three. While deGrom hasn’t been at the top of his game yet, he still owns a solid 2.81 ERA over his first eight starts. He’ll look for more progress in an interleague matchup against the White Sox next week.
May 27 - 10:52 PM

Jacob deGrom allowed four runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Brewers.

DeGrom gave up five hits, including a two-run home run, and walked three in the start. On the plus side, he did strike out seven. He's been good this year, registering a 3.07 ERA in nine starts, but he hasn't been the same dominant deGrom we've come to expect, registering just 30 strikeouts in 41 innings to date. DeGrom will look for a better showing Friday against the Dodgers.
May 21 - 9:29 PM

After Sunday's no-decision against the Rockies, Jacob deGrom said, "I'm still not feeling very comfortable on the mound."

To be clear, deGrom's discomfort is not related to an injury, but is rather purely mechanical. "My front side is still not getting up where I want it to," he explained. On Sunday, he hurled 6 1/3 innings of three-run ball against the Rockies. Even if he hasn't quite locked into a groove yet, the 27-year-old has actually pitched just fine statistically, holding a 2.50 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 23/8 K/BB ratio over 36 innings (six starts).
May 16 - 1:59 PM

Jacob deGrom logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Rockies on Sunday, surrendering three runs on four hits over his 6 1/3 innings of work.

DeGrom walked three and struck out three on the afternoon. He allowed the Rockies to scratch out a run in the second inning and gave up a solo home run to Carlos Gonzalez in the sixth. The final run charged to him came home after deGrom had departed. He'll carry a 2.50 ERA and 1.19 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Brewers.
May 15 - 8:03 PM

Jacob deGrom pitched admirably in earning a no-decision against the Dodgers on Tuesday, yielding two runs on eight hits over seven innings.

The Dodgers burned deGrom for two runs in the first inning, with Corey Seager notching an RBI double and Adrian Gonzalez bringing him home with a sacrifice fly. He settled into the game after that point. For the evening, he struck out four without walking a batter. He has yet to fan more than six in a start, but holds a 2.12 ERA and 1.21 WHIP nonetheless. A road date with the Rockies shows next on his schedule.
May 11 - 1:58 AM

Jacob deGrom tasted defeat for the first time this season as he fell to 3-1, yielding three runs on eight hits over five innings in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Padres.

Thursday's start was deGrom's shortest of the young season. He had managed to pitch into the sixth inning in his other three outings. The 27-year-old right-hander struck out two and walked one in what was a relatively subdued performance. While deGrom has yet to surpass six strikeouts in any one game this season, his 1.99 ERA shows no outward damage. His 1.24 WHIP looks decent enough as well, though that's a bit off his career mark of 1.04. DeGrom will look to return to his winning ways in a road start against the Dodgers next time he toes the rubber.
May 6 - 12:55 AM

Jacob deGrom survived a hectic third inning to pick up his third win of the season Saturday against the Giants.

He scattered two hits and three runs (all unearned) over six innings of work. DeGrom didn’t allow a walk in his first two starts but he handed out four free passes Saturday including one with the bases loaded. His fastball touched 95 mph at one point but mostly sat in the low 90s. DeGrom unraveled in the third after a throwing error by Wilmer Flores but he buckled down and threw zeros the rest of the way. It was a trying month for deGrom both personally and physically, but he still managed to go undefeated with a 1.02 ERA in three starts. The long-haired right-hander will go to work again Thursday in San Diego.
Apr 30 - 7:41 PM

Jacob deGrom pitched well in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Braves, hurling 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball.

DeGrom was just activated off the family emergency list (his new baby was experiencing a health concern). Returning to the mound on Sunday, he surrendered eight hits while striking out three. He did not walk a batter on the afternoon. The only run to score on his line came in the fifth inning, when he served up an RBI single to Nick Markakis. The 26-year-old right-hander has been limited to just two starts due to a lat injury, but he should be able to settle into something of a groove now that he is past that injury. In 11 2/3 innings, he has allowed two runs. DeGrom will look to continue his nice (if limited) start to the 2016 campaign when he tangos with the Giants in a home outing next time he toes the rubber.
Apr 24 - 4:56 PM

Mets activated RHP Jacob deGrom from the family emergency leave list.

DeGrom has been away for a bit with his new baby dealing with a health issue, and he's also had a sore lat recently. The good news is his child is fine, and hopefully the lat problem is in the rear view mirror, as well. DeGrom will start on Sunday versus the Braves.
Apr 24 - 8:52 AM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Jacob deGrom (lat, baby) will start Sunday in Atlanta.

It's a juicy matchup for his return to the Mets' rotation. The right-hander hasn't pitched since April 8 due to lat soreness and the arrival of his first child. He struck out six batters over six innings of one-run ball in his 2016 regular-season debut against the Phillies.
