Jacob deGrom allowed 10 hits and five runs over 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Marlins on Saturday.
The start, both in hits allowed and runs given up, goes down as his worst in 17 starts this year. That speaks to how bad the 28-year-old was on Saturday but also to how good he's been this year, as deGrom is still 6-5 with a 2.73 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 103/24 K/BB ratio after the loss. DeGrom will look to get back on the horse Thursday against the Rockies. Jul 23 - 11:36 PM

Jacob deGrom was almost perfect in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Phillies, tossing a complete game, one-hit shutout.

Marvelous work by deGrom, who struck out seven and walked just one, but he will probably be kicking himself for that lone hit. It came off the bat of one Mr. Zach Eflin -- the Phillies' starter for the day -- in the third inning. Oh what might have been. Fate has struck the Mets multiple blows in the form of rotation injury this season, making deGrom all the more important if the Mets want to make another push for the NL pennant. He will put his 2.38 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 98/23 K/BB ratio (102 innings) to the test in a road tilt with the Marlins next time he toes the rubber.

Jacob deGrom limited the Marlins to two runs over seven innings Wednesday for his fifth win.

Giancarlo Stanton hit two monster home runs off deGrom, but they were both solo shots and the Mets went on to win the game 4-2. The right-hander struck out seven while scattering two walks and six hits over his seven strong frames. He boasts a 2.64 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and 91/22 K/BB ratio through 93 innings this season.
Jul 6 - 4:09 PM

Jacob deGrom secured his first win since April 30 after allowing one run over five-plus innings against the Cubs on Friday.

DeGrom waited out the first rain delay, but didn’t stick around after the second one. Still, he enjoyed some rare run support from his offense while allowing three hits and one walk. The only run scored on a solo homer by Kris Bryant. DeGrom struck out seven in the victory and now owns a 2.62 ERA and 84/20 K/BB ratio in 86 innings through 14 starts this season. He’ll try to make it a winning streak with a start against the Marlins next week at home.

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.
Jun 7 - 10:15 PM

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.
