Jacob deGrom was pulled after eight scoreless innings Thursday against the Cardinals because he has dealt with hip and shoulder soreness in recent weeks.
Mets manager Terry Collins planned to pull deGrom at 110 pitches no matter what, so he decided to take him out after he reached 104 through eight innings. The hip stiffness developed during a start two weeks ago and he felt some shoulder soreness after sitting through the Mets' 10-run inning last weekend against the Brewers. It's worth noting that deGrom had a stint on the DL last summer due to "fatigue" in his shoulder, but he insisted after Thursday's game that both issues are being managed and have calmed down. DeGrom owns a 2.75 ERA through nine starts this season. May 21 - 5:59 PM

Jacob DeGrom pitched superbly in a 5-0 win over the Cardinals on Thursday, delivering eight innings of shutout ball while allowing just one hit and striking out 11.

This marks back-to-back sharp starts for deGrom, a welcome sign for a pitcher who has had his rough moments this season. Against the 27-13 Cardinals, deGrom tossed a one-hitter and looked every bit the Top-30 fantasy performer that many projected him to be entering the season. He didn't walk a batter in the contest. DeGrom now boasts a 2.75 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and holds a 54/13 K/BB ratio over 55 2/3 innings. A home start against the Phillies is up next as deGrom tries to make it three straight dominant outings.

Jacob deGrom cruised to a win over the Brewers on Saturday, allowing one run on five hits over six innings.

DeGrom would have needed to toss batting practice to lose this one after the Brewers allowed 10 runs in the fourth inning. He did his part to make sure the game remained a laugher, striking out six, walking one and allowing just a sixth-inning sacrifice fly to Ryan Braun. DeGrom also went 3-for-3 at the plate, so that's fun. Through eight starts, he now holds a 3.21 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 43/13 K/BB ratio in 47 2/3 innings. He's been inconsistent at times this season, but overall, the reigning NL Rookie of the Year has shown more good than bad. A home start against the world-leading Cardinals is up next for the pitcher.

Jacob deGrom served up four runs in five innings, resulting in a loss to the Cubs on Monday.

DeGrom yielded back-to-back home runs to Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo in the first inning, digging himself a quick 3-0 hole. The right-hander also battled control, walking four while giving up five hits and striking out five. He's been hit-or-miss through seven starts this season but still has a serviceable 3.46 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and a 37/12 K/BB ratio in 41 2/3 innings. DeGrom will try for better results in a weekend home start against the Brewers.
May 11 - 11:34 PM

Jacob deGrom improved to 3-3 after limiting the Orioles to one run in seven innings as the Mets won 5-1 on Wednesday.

The 2014 NL Rookie of the Year had put together back-to-back subpar starts coming into the game, but rebounded nicely. He scattered six hits and a walk while striking out nine on the evening. The Orioles plated their only run in the fifth, when Jimmy Paredes hit an RBI single to right field to make it a 3-1 game. DeGrom owns a 2.95 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP, and a 32/8 K/BB ratio in 36 2/3 innings. He'll face the Cubs at Wrigley Field the next time he takes the mound.
May 6 - 10:22 PM

Jacob deGrom gave up five runs -- three earned -- in 5 1/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Nationals.

DeGrom couldn't let Wilmer Flores off the hook during a three-run fourth inning, and he gave up two more runs in sixth. It could have been worse, but Erik Goeddel managed to strand both runners he inherited, thanks to Juan Lagares cutting down Ryan Zimmerman at the plate to end the frame. A home start versus Baltimore is next on deGrom's schedule.
Apr 30 - 10:37 PM

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.
Apr 18 - 10:33 PM

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.
