Mets emerging stud Jacob deGrom stymies Marlins
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom, who has been lights-out at Citi Field since last year, turned the lights out Saturday night on the Marlins in front of a sellout crowd.
The bullpen flipped the switch back on in the ninth inning, but finally shut Miami down to raise his record to 2-1.
deGrom was dominant in seven shutout innings, surrendering six measly singles, walking none and fanning eight in lowering his ERA to a sparkling 0.93. He retired 13 of the last 15 batters he faced and has not allowed a run in his last two outings.
Outfielder and teammate Michael Cuddyer was duly impressed.
"His mound presence, the way he carries himself, he's not scared of any hitter or any situation," he told ESPN. "No moments are too big for him, and no hitter is too big."
deGrom will try to make it three shutout performances in a row Friday night against the host Yankees.
Mets' deGrom wins home opener with 6 1/3 scoreless innings
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom earned the win in his team's home opener Monday, allowing seven hits and one walk in 6 1/3 scoreless innings while striking out three in his team's 2-0 victory over the Phillies.
deGrom (1-1) retired the first seven batters he faced and then was able to work out of trouble through the middle innings to pick up his first win of the season. He owns a 1.46 ERA and 9:3 K:BB ratio in 12 1/3 innings going into Saturday's matchup with the Marlins.
Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom allows two runs in six innings Wednesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/8/15) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom allowed two runs over six strong innings of work in New York's 2-1 loss to the Nationals Wednesday.
DeGrom's only blemish came in the first inning when Ryan Zimmerman took him to deep left field for a home run, bringing in two. He begins the year with a 3.00 ERA.
DeGrom will look to get his first win of the year Monday against the Phillies.
Mets' Jacob deGrom hoping to keep Nationals in check Wednesday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/7/15) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom paid close attention to Bartolo Colon's start on Opening Day, and is ready to keep the Nationals in check in his season debut on Wednesday.
"I watched what Bartolo did, he just located and kept the ball down," deGrom said, per the New York Daily News. "He threw the ball really well. That is always my game plan: throw strikes and keep it down. Watching it today, I learned some things from him and I will take it into Wednesday."
deGrom is coming off a Rookie of the Year campaign in 2014 in which he went 9-6 with a 2.69 ERA and 144:43 K:BB ratio in 140 1/3 innings. He is hoping to make adjustments in order to avoid a sophomore slump.
"I know hitters will make adjustments on me," deGrom said this spring, "I am ready for that."
Mets plan to be conservative with Harvey, deGrom early in season
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/6/15) The Mets plan to be cautious early in the season with starting pitchers Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom since neither player stretched out to 100 pitches during spring training, per NJ.com.
"It's not about health," general manager Sandy Alderson said. "Well in Harvey's case it's about his return. And in deGrom's case it's being a little conservative, that's all."
With the conservative approach in mind, the Mets chose to open the season with an eight-man bullpen.
"That gave us a little bit of flexibility," Alderson said. "That may change as well over time."
|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.
