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. Sep 15 - 11:14 PM

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.
Sep 3 - 10:38 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.

Jacob deGrom was rocked for five earned runs in six innings Saturday in a loss to the Dodgers.

DeGrom was pretty good through the first three frames but seemed to run out of gas late in his first start since being diagnosed August 11 with right rotator cuff tendinitis. The 26-year-old allowed two runs in the fourth and then three in the fifth. He watched his ERA rise from 2.87 to 3.13.
Aug 24 - 12:11 AM

Mets activated RHP Jacob deGrom from the 15-day disabled list.

The 26-year-old right-hander is starting for the Mets on Saturday night against the Dodgers after missing a couple weeks with rotator cuff tendinitis. He owns an excellent 2.87 ERA and 94/33 K/BB ratio in 100 1/3 innings this season as a rookie.

Jacob deGrom (shoulder) will be activated and start Saturday against the Dodgers.

Everything has gone well with deGrom's recovery from rotator cuff tendinitis. His return will be welcomed by fantasy owners, as the 26-year-old is 6-5 with a 2.87 ERA and 94/33 K/BB ratio over 100 1/3 innings thus far this season.
Aug 20 - 7:25 PM

Jacob deGrom (shoulder) is on pace to rejoin the Mets' rotation on Saturday versus the Dodgers.

DeGrom threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Sunday morning with no issues. He'll throw off the mound again in the middle of this week, potentially clearing the way for his return next weekend. The young right-hander has been out with rotator cuff tendinitis. "We were just seeing how it felt," deGrom said about Sunday's session. "I threw changeups when I was playing catch, and those felt fine. Either Tuesday or Wednesday I'll throw everything."
Aug 17 - 12:59 PM

Jacob deGrom (shoulder) should be ready to begin throwing off a mound Sunday.

DeGrom has been out since August 8 with right rotator cuff tendinitis. He threw from flat ground Saturday with no issues and the hope is that he'll be ready to rejoin the Mets' rotation when first eligible on August 24.
Aug 16 - 4:12 PM

Jacob deGrom (shoulder) said Tuesday that he's already feeling better.

DeGrom was placed on the disabled list with rotator cuff tendinitis, but he's taking anti-inflammatories and receiving physical therapy and has already noticed improvement. "I already feel a lot better with just the couple of days' rest that I've had [compared to] doing the tests the other day at the hospital," deGrom said. "My strength is a lot better than when I first did them." The right-hander is hopeful of missing just two starts and returning on August 24 when first eligible.
Aug 12 - 9:54 PM

Mets placed RHP Jacob deGrom on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 8, with right rotator cuff tendinitis.

The Mets will put deGrom on anti-inflammatories and the hope is that he could be ready to rejoin the rotation when he's first eligible in two weeks. In other words, it's not viewed as serious. Rafael Montero has been called up from Triple-A Las Vegas and will take his place in the starting rotation.
Aug 12 - 8:42 AM

Jacob deGrom will be placed on the disabled list with right rotator cuff tendinitis.

It's good news under the circumstances. The rookie right-hander will presumably rest for a few days before being re-evaluated. The Mets will call up Rafael Montero to take his place in the starting rotation.
Aug 11 - 4:03 PM

Jacob deGrom has been sent back to New York to undergo an MRI after feeling soreness in his right shoulder.

Well, that's no good. DeGrom last pitched on Thursday and the soreness started to crop up a couple days later. It appears the Mets will hold off placing him on the disabled list for now, as they hope it's just a one-start absence. Ultimately, they figure to play things safely with the youngster even though deGrom doesn't think it's a serious injury. Carlos Torres could make a spot start Tuesday if deGrom misses just one start, or the Mets could look to Jesus Montero or Noah Syndergaard if the absence will be longer.
Aug 10 - 11:52 AM

Jacob deGrom yielded three runs in six innings Thursday in a no-decision versus the Nationals.

Even deGrom's worst outing in a month still rates as a quality start. He had allowed a total of four runs over 34 2/3 innings in his previous five turns.
Aug 7 - 5:23 PM

Jacob deGrom pitched seven and one-third innings of two-run ball in New York's win over the Giants on Saturday.

Both deGrom and Giants starter Jake Peavy were tossing dueling no-hitters through the middle innings, but neither man secured their place in immortality. Pablo Sandoval doubled in the top of the seventh to break up deGrom's shot at the no-no. DeGrom ended up the winner in this one, striking out seven and allowing just four hits. He's now 6-5 with a 2.77 ERA.
