Jacob deGrom had his worst start of the season in Friday's loss to the Yankees, surrendering six runs on eight hits in just five innings.
DeGrom was hit hard early, as he allowed a pair of two-run home runs to Mark Teixera and a solo shot to Jacoby Ellsbury to put his team in a 6-0 hole after three innings. The Mets would manage just one run, leveling deGrom's record at 2-2. The poor outing raised the 27-year-old righty's ERA to 2.96 and his WHIP to 1.32. While nothing good came of Friday's start, deGrom allowed just seven long balls in 2014 and it's safe to say that we'll probably go a while before we see him blasted for another three-homer game. He'll try to keep the ball in the yard when he faces the Nationals in his next outing. Apr 24 - 11:05 PM

Jacob deGrom continued his strong start to the season when he held the Marlins scoreless over seven innings in Saturday's 5-4 win.

DeGrom followed up an April 13 shutout of the Phillies with another gem, this time against the Marlins. He allowed six hits and struck out eight without a walk in his seven innings of work. The 27-year-old has been rock solid in the early going in helping the Mets out to a 9-3 start, 6-0 at home. After winning the NL Rookie of the Year in 2014 based on his 2.69 ERA and 1.14 WHIP over 140 1/3 innings (with 144 strikeouts), he's a likely Top-30 fantasy starter given that he should see more innings in 2015. DeGrom will look to continue to slay the notion of the sophomore slump when he takes his act on the subway against the Yankees next weekend.

Jacob deGrom scattered seven hits over 6 1/3 innings in the Mets' 2-0 win over the Phillies on Monday.

All seven hits were singles, allowing deGrom to get through the outing without surrendering a run. It helped that Carlos Torres was able to strand two runners after entering with one out in the seventh.
Apr 13 - 4:28 PM

Jacob deGrom pitched six innings and allowed two runs Wednesday in a loss to the Nationals.

The Mets never were able to let deGrom off the hook after he gave up a two-run homer in the first. DeGrom ended up striking out six. He's looked strong since the very start of the spring, and he projects as a top-30 fantasy starter going forward.
Apr 8 - 11:08 PM

Jacob deGrom excelled in his final Cactus League start on Friday, allowing just one hit over four scoreless innings against the Rangers.

He whiffed four on the evening without issuing a walk. It wraps up a fantastic spring for the 26-year-old right-hander who posted a 2.08 ERA and 25/4 K/BB ratio over 26 innings. He looks poised to improve upon his outstanding 2014 campaign where he took home National League Rookie of the Year honors.
Apr 3 - 11:49 PM

Jacob deGrom limited the Nationals to one run and four hits over seven innings in a win Saturday.

Bryce Harper positively crushed a home run off deGrom, but that was the only problem with the right-hander's outing. The 2014 NL Rookie of the Year should remain a very strong starter this year, though the Mets' poor defense will take at least a minor toll on his fantasy value.
Mar 28 - 5:10 PM

Jacob deGrom struck out six in five scoreless innings Tuesday in the Mets' 6-4 defeat of a Marlins split-squad.

Nothing about deGrom's Rookie of the Year campaign suggests it was a fluke. That doesn't necessarily mean he'll take a step forward this year, but he should remain a fine pitcher. He's a top-30 starter for fantasy purposes.
Mar 17 - 4:09 PM

The Baseball Writers Association of America announced Monday that Jacob deGrom was named 2014 National League Rookie of the Year.

He received 26 of 30 first-place votes, with Billy Hamilton getting the other four first-place tallies. Kolten Wong finished third in the voting. DeGrom is certainly a deserving winner, having put up a 2.69 ERA and 144/43 K/BB ratio over 140 1/3 innings for the Mets.

The Baseball Writers Association of America announced Tuesday that Jacob deGrom, Billy Hamilton and Kolten Wong are finalists for the National League Rookie of the Year award.

DeGrom has to be considered the favorite after posting a 2.69 ERA and 144/43 K/BB ratio over 140 1/3 innings for the Mets. Hamilton entered the season with the most hype of any NL rookie and certainly had his moments, but he finished with a lowly .292 OBP. Wong showed some pop with 12 homers but matched Hamilton's .292 OBP. The winner will be announced next Monday.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Mets will shut down Jacob deGrom.

DeGrom had been lined up to face the Astros on Saturday at Citi Field, but he has already thrown 178 2/3 innings this season between the majors and the minors, a jump of 31 innings from his 2013 total. The Mets are content with cutting him off here. While he had little fanfare coming into the year, deGrom will finish 2014 with a 2.63 ERA over 22 starts. He has a very strong case for the National League Rookie of the Year award.

Jacob deGrom held the Braves to two runs -- one earned -- over six innings Sunday as the Mets completed a three-game sweep with a 10-2 blowout win.

The 26-year-old right-hander carried a perfect game into the fifth, but Justin Upton broke that up with a single and then scored on a Ruben Tejada fielding error. A few batters later, deGrom issued a bases-loaded walk to give the Braves their second run. He struck out 10 batters in the impressive outing and is now sporting a 2.63 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 43/144 K/BB ratio in 140 1/3 innings this year.

Jacob deGrom struck out the first eight batters he faced and 13 overall while allowing three runs over seven innings Monday in a no-decision against the Marlins.

With a chance to set the modern record for consecutive strikeouts to start a game, deGrom gave up a single to opposing starter Jarred Cosart in the third, ending his streak. Still, it was an awfully impressive run, and deGrom remained strong until the seventh, when he gave up all three runs. Those were the first earned runs he had allowed in four starts since Aug. 23. With a 2.68 ERA and 134 strikeouts in 134 1/3 innings, deGrom now seems like the clear favorite to claim the NL Rookie of the Year award.

Jacob deGrom hurled eight scoreless innings Tuesday as the Mets shut out the Rockies 2-0.

The 26-year-old right-hander was absolutely dominant, yielding only three hits and walking none while punching out nine Colorado batters. DeGrom now boasts a 2.62 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 121/39 K/BB in 127 1/3 innings this year and may suddenly be the favorite for National League Rookie of the Year honors given Billy Hamilton's second-half struggles. DeGrom will face the Nationals at home next.

Jacob deGrom pitched well on Wednesday, limiting the Marlins to one run over six innings, but got a no-decision in the Mets' 4-3 win.

Losses and no-decisions have been rare for deGrom, as Wednesday marked only his second no-decision since July 8. He is 6-1 since then. He held the Marlins to six hits and a pair of walks while striking out six. In the process, his ERA remained below 3.00 at 2.87. He has a 1.20 WHIP and a 112/39 K/BB ratio as well. DeGrom will face the Rockies at home on Tuesday in his next start.
Wed, Sep 3, 2014 10:38:00 PM

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.
