Mets planning to use six-man rotation into August
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/27/15) Once Dillon Gee joins the Mets rotation after his last rehab start Wednesday for Double-A Binghamton, the team plans to go to a six-man rotation through at least early August, pitching coach Dan Warthen said Wednesday.
Warthen said the goal is to have the starters make roughly 30 starts instead of the usual 33 during the regular season. The team also wants to be conservative with some of the younger arms -- Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard. The other two pitchers in the rotation are veterans Bartolo Colon and Jonathon Niese.
"It is better for the player. It's better for the organization, at least, until we get to where we feel like we have plenty of innings left in September and still have the possibility of innings left in October," Warthen said, per ESPN.
"Our No. 1 concern is our pitchers, and our pitchers staying healthy. We have some other [young] ones -- [prospect Steven] Matz is coming along. We're going to have Syndergaard here, deGrom here, Harvey here. Those are the guys who are the big concerns. As for the other guys, they have to go along with it. It's going to only prolong their careers. From the organization's standpoint, from my standpoint, I think it's a smart thing to do."
Mets SP Jacob deGrom strikes out nine in Tuesday's win
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/26/15) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom allowed two runs on six hits over 7 1/3 innings of work during Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Phillies.
deGrom struck out nine and did not walk a batter during the outing. He has now struck out 20 batters over his last two starts. Despite a solid effort, deGrom received a no-decision Tuesday.
deGrom has given up one or fewer runs in four of his last five starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Monday at San Diego.
Mets' Collins to use six-man rotation when Dillon Gee returns
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/25/15) Mets manager Terry Collins said Monday that pitcher Jacob deGrom is on an innings limit this season, The Star-Ledger reports. Collins also spoke about his plans to use a six-man rotation when Dillon Gee returns from the disabled list, saying that he told his pitchers it was to keep them fresh late in the year.
deGrom threw 178 1/3 innings last season, with a majority of them coming in the majors during his Rookie of the Year campaign. He's up to 55 2/3 innings this season through nine starts and owns a 2.75 ERA and 54:13 K:BB ratio.
The team is looking to limit the innings of deGrom, Matt Harvey and Noah Syndergaard in the event of a possible playoff run, MLB.com reports.
"The six-man rotation, at this point, is in large part to manage innings, manage appearances, manage pitches," general manager Sandy Alderson said "There is always the risk that guys are getting too much rest. But at the same time, we don't want to run out of innings for any of our starting pitchers at the end of the season."
Mets SP Jacob deGrom quiets Cardinals bats on Thursday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/21/15) Mets starter Jacob deGrom stifled the Cardinals hitters on Thursday, as the Mets defeated the Redbirds 5-0.
deGrom was stellar, allowing just one hit over eight shutout innings. He struck out a season-high 11 batters and didn't walk anyone. He threw 79 of his 104 pitches for strikes. The only hit he allowed was a one-out single in the top of the first. He retired the next 23 batters he faced after that.
If there was one knock on deGrom's performance, perhaps it was that he did not get a hit on the afternoon.
deGrom has been dealing with minor hip and shoulder soreness of late, which is why manager Terry Collins opted to lift him with after eight innings, according to ESPN.com
"I haven't thrown a complete game in the big leagues," deGrom said. "That's something I want to do. But I had a lot of pitches early on. My goal was to try to stay in there for at least seven. Then, whenever they let me go back out for the eighth, I was just happy to do that."
The young right-hander improved to 5-4 on the season and lowered his ERA to 2.75. He's allowed just one run over his last 14 innings pitched. deGrom will look to keep the good times rolling in his next start, scheduled for Tuesday against the Phillies.
Mets SP Jacob deGrom back on track with solid start on Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/16/15) Mets starter Jacob deGrom was in fine form in Saturday's win over the Brewers. The reigning NL Rookie of the Year pitched six innings, allowing one run on five hits. He walked one and struck out six. deGrom was the beneficary of an offensive explosion by the Mets as they routed the Brewers 14-1.
This was a nice rebound for deGrom who struggled in his last start on Monday when he gave up four runs in five innings. The only run he gave up on Saturday came on a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning. deGrom threw 100 pitches, with 65 going for strikes.
deGrom even went 3 for 3 with an RBI at the plate, including two singles during the Mets' 10-run fourth inning. He's now sporting a very fine .294 batting average.
"It was a big night," deGrom said, per the New Jersey Star-Ledger. "Coming off a couple bad starts, wanted to get out there and put us in a position to win. We played great as a team. Everything came together, the offense, and we pitched well and got the win."
The victory evened his record at 4-4 and dropped his ERA to 3.72. He'll look to keep the good times rolling when he makes his next start, scheduled for Wednesday against the Cardinals.
|2014 summary: When Jacob deGrom was first recalled by the Mets in mid-May, he came pretty much as advertised. Over his first nine starts, deGrom put up a 3.62 ERA supported by decent rate stats, but hardly anything that Fantasy owners could get excited about. Over the last three months of the season, deGrom blazed his way through the opposition, building his National League Rookie of the Year résumé. In those final 13 starts, deGrom struck out 99 batters in 85 2/3 innings, while walking 19, as he threw his fastball with more spin and his slider with greater movement. In total, deGrom went 9-6 with a 2.69 ERA and 1.14 WHIP.|
Playing time status: As a rookie, deGrom pitched 178 1/3 innings between the majors and the minors, so it is unlikely he will be subject to an innings limit in his second season.
2015 outlook: What deGrom did over the latter half of the season was out of character for him and beyond most owners' expectations, but he was so completely and consistently dominant, that it's hard not to trust the results as an indication of future performance. He can now be viewed as one of the top 30 starting pitchers on Draft Day.
