Jacob deGrom struck out 10 and allowed one run over 8 1/3 innings in Friday’s victory over the Pirates.
It was the longest outing by a Mets starter this season. And boy, did they need it. DeGrom allowed just six hits and one walk, with the lone run scoring on a solo homer from Gregory Polanco in the fourth inning. Terry Collins gave him the chance to go the distance initially, but deGrom gave up a leadoff single to Polanco and struck out David Freese looking before being pulled at 118 pitches. DeGrom improved to 4-1 with the victory and now owns a 3.23 ERA and 86/24 K/BB ratio in 64 innings through 10 starts. May 26 - 10:15 PM

Jacob deGrom's scheduled start Thursday against the Padres has been pushed back to Friday.

With storms in the forecast for Thursday night, the Mets don't want to risk wasting deGrom's turn with an abbreviated start. Instead, deGrom will start Friday's series opener at Pittsburgh. Rafael Montero will make a spot start Thursday at Citi Field, assuming the game goes on as planned. Daily Slant: With Montero taking the hill instead of deGrom, the Padres become a much more intriguing team target on a short night slate. Montero has allowed a .421 wOBA to start the year with nearly as many walks (14) and earned runs (15) as strikeouts (16). Over his short big league career, Montero has allowed a putrid .432 wOBA to LH bats with a -1.6 K-BB% and 6.13 xFIP. He hasn't been much better against RH bats, so as long as the weather cooperates, fire up the Padres.

Jacob deGrom fired seven scoreless innings in a 3-0 win over the Angels on Friday.

DeGrom gave up four hits and three walks while striking out nine. He was cruising until the seventh inning, when he came down with a blister issue on his right ring finger before loading the bases with nobody out. However, he managed to escape without a run scoring. The outing marked the first time a Mets starter completed seven innings since deGrom did it back on April 28. His ERA improved from 4.07 to 3.56 with the victory. He’ll get the Padres next in another home start.
May 19 - 10:40 PM

Jacob deGrom racked up seven strikeouts over six-plus innings of four-run ball in a no-decision against the Brewers on Sunday.

The right-hander allowed eight hits and one walk in the contest. A two-run homer by Keon Broxton in the sixth inning provided the bulk of the damage against deGrom. He left with a 7-4 lead and in line for his third victory of the season, but the Mets' bullpen was unable to protect it for him. He'll carry a 4.07 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 67/20 K/BB ratio into Saturday's start against the Angels.
May 14 - 6:22 PM

Jacob deGrom held the Giants to three earned runs over six innings Monday in a no-decision.

New York won the game in the bottom of the ninth on a walkoff RBI single by Neil Walker. DeGrom struck out 11 and gave up only four hits, though two of those hits were homers. He's rocking a 60/19 K/BB ratio over 42 2/3 innings to open the 2017 season.
May 8 - 11:20 PM

Jacob deGrom snared a win despite allowing five runs in five innings of work against the Braves on Wednesday.

The Mets' offense bailed him out by scoring early and often against Bartolo Colon and the Braves' bullpen. DeGrom burned through 109 pitches in five frames by allowing five walks and eight hits. He salvaged some value for his owners by fanning five batters. He is now 2-1 with a 3.68 ERA after six starts. His 49/16 strikeout/walk ratio in 36 2/3 innings indicates plenty of wins are on the horizon.
May 4 - 12:31 AM

Jacob deGrom yielded three runs over seven innings and struck out 12 in a 7-5 victory over the Nationals on Friday.

All three runs scored in the second inning, including a solo homer from Ryan Zimmerman and a two-run shot off the bat of Matt Wieters. He bounced back in dominant fashion from there and the Mets battled back to put him in position for his first win of the season. DeGrom has now reached double-digit strikeouts for the third straight start. He’s the first Mets pitcher to do that since David Cone in 1992. DeGrom will carry a 2.84 ERA into a start against the Braves next week on the road.
Apr 28 - 10:53 PM

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.
Apr 21 - 2:02 PM

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.
