Jacob deGrom gave up just one run in 6 2/3 innings to earn a 7-3 victory over the Cardinals on Wednesday.

He rattled off six shutout innings before tiring in the seventh. He walked two batters in that frame and was relieved after throwing 110 pitches. Reliever Jerry Blevins promptly allowed both inherited runners to score. DeGrom improves to 11-3 with a 3.37 ERA in 19 starts. He has a splendid 144/40 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 125 2/3 innings. He lines up for a very attractive two-start week coming up, with road games against the Padres and Mariners on tap.

Jacob deGrom continued his recent string of dominating starts Friday by holding the Rockies to two runs (one earned) over eight innings as part of a 14-2 victory.

DeGrom also had a nice night at the plate, going 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored. The shaggy-haired right-hander struck out 11 batters and walked just one in the victory. He’s now won six straight starts while putting up a 1.53 ERA and 47/9 K/BB ratio over 47 innings. He’ll try to stay hot when he squares off against the Cardinals next week.
Jul 14 - 11:30 PM

Jacob deGrom will start the Mets' first game of the second half on Friday at home against the Rockies.

Manager Terry Collins wouldn't reveal the rest of the order of his post-break rotation other than saying Steven Matz would likely start Sunday. DeGrom posted a 3.65 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 130/38 K/BB over 111 first-half innings.
Jul 9 - 12:05 PM

Jacob deGrom allowed four runs on eight hits over seven innings but was able to come away with the win in Friday's 6-5 victory over the Cardinals.

In a stat line you don't see every day, the right-hander served up four solo homers but still got the victory. It helped that he struck out five without issuing a free pass. The win was his fifth in a row heading into the break, leaving him 9-3 with a 3.65 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 130/38 K/BB ratio on the year. He's been a bright spot in an otherwise forgettable season for the Mets to this point.
Jul 8 - 12:54 AM

Wednesday's game between the Mets and Nationals has been postponed due to inclement weather.

Jacob deGrom had been set to take on Tanner Roark in this one, but the weather deities had other plans. No makeup date has been announced as of yet. The Mets' only other trip to DC takes place August 25-27, so a double-header could potentially be in order.
Jul 5 - 9:04 PM

Jacob deGrom spun seven innings of one-run ball and struck out 12 batters in a 2-1 victory over the Phillies on Friday.

DeGrom was flat-out dominant, allowing just three hits while walking one. He flirted with a no-hitter before Curtis Granderson lost a ball in the lights with two outs in the fifth inning. It resulted in a triple for Andrew Knapp, who was brought home on a single from Ty Kelly. Still, it was another dominant outing from deGrom. He now owns a 0.84 ERA and 30/3 K/BB ratio in 32 innings over his last four starts.
Jun 30 - 10:14 PM

Jacob deGrom limited the Giants to one run over eight innings, striking out seven, and the Mets came on late to grab a 5-2 win Saturday.

deGrom scattered four hits and a walk but was in danger of not factoring in the decision after Brandon Belt's solo homer in the seventh inning tied the game at 1-1. Fortunately for the right-hander, the Mets answered in the top of the eighth and the bullpen held on, getting him his third straight win. He's allowed one run while going at least eight innings in each of those three wins, improving him to 7-3 with a 3.71 ERA and 1.27 WHIP through 15 starts overall. The 29-year-old will have a terrific chance to make it four in a row when he takes on the Phillies on Friday.
Jun 24 - 11:30 PM

Jacob deGrom allowed just one (unearned) run over eight innings Sunday in the Mets' 5-1 defeat of the Nationals.

He was not only brilliant on the mound but also slugged his first career home run in the second inning off opposing starter Joe Ross to tie the game at 1-1. The right-hander yielded just three hits and two walks while striking out six Mets hitters. He boasts a 6-3 record, 3.94 ERA, and 106/36 K/BB ratio in 89 innings (14 starts) this season. A road start against the Giants is next.
Jun 18 - 4:06 PM

Jacob deGrom recorded the second complete game of his career in Monday's victory, limiting the Cubs to just one run on five hits.

The right-hander walked four and punched out six on the night. The only blemish on his evening was a solo blast off the bat of Addison Russell in the seventh inning. It was a nice bounce-back effort for deGrom who had been hit very hard over his last two outings. He now sits at 5-3 on the season to go with a 4.33 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 100/34 K/BB ratio in his 81 innings. He'll do battle against the Nationals his next time out on Sunday.
Jun 12 - 9:38 PM

Jacob deGrom was pounded for eight runs in four innings by the Rangers on Tuesday.

Next to him getting hurt, deGrom suddenly turning into a lousy pitcher was the last thing the Mets needed. He's given up 15 runs in his last two starts, taking his ERA from 3.23 to 4.75. He's still striking out a ton of guys, so that's not the issue. Poor command has been. It seems some patience will be required of his fantasy owners.
Jun 6 - 11:48 PM

Jacob deGrom coughed up seven runs in four innings and was charged with a loss to the Brewers on Wednesday.

Here is the good news: he struck out six batters in four innings. Everything else is bad. He issued five bases-on-balls and allowed eight hits -- two of which were home runs. Eric Thames took him deep for a two-run shot in the first inning, then Keon Broxton smacked a solo dinger in the second frame. The wheels came off when he served up four runs in the fourth inning. It was the second time in deGrom's career that he allowed seven or more earned runs in one game (he surrendered eight runs in five innings to the Giants last August). DeGrom falls to 4-2 with a 3.97 ERA through 11 starts. He has punched out an amazing 92 batters in 68 innings. He will try to put this whipping behind him when he takes on the Rangers on Tuesday.
May 31 - 10:37 PM

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.
May 25 - 4:16 PM

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.
