Mets going to six-man rotation, Steven Matz to debut Sunday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/26/15) Mets starting pitcher prospect Steven Matz will make his MLB debut Sunday against the Reds, general manager Sandy Alderson announced Friday.
Alderson also said the team will go to a six-man rotation for the "foreseeable future," as Matz will join a rotation that features Bartolo Colon, Jonathon Niese, Matt Harvey, Noah Syndergaard and Jacob deGrom.
"They're on board," Mets manager Terry Collins said, per NJ.com. "As Sandy alluded to, certainly this is in their best interest, a few of them. At the time we did it before things were moving pretty good, guys were pitching pretty well. We went back, we changed it, couple guys didn't pitch all that good even on regular rest.
"They understand we're going to give this a shot, we're going to take a good strong look at it. It's to benefit the whole organization, basically, so that we look up and everybody is pitching. We're not pushing guys back, we're not skipping, guys are out there and competing. That's what they want to do."
Matz's arrival means Niese will get bumped from Sunday to Tuesday against the Cubs.
Matz, who is considered a top-100 prospect by Baseball America (No. 33) and MLB.com (No. 66), went 7-4 with a 2.19 ERA at Triple-A Las Vegas. He totaled 94 strikeouts in 90 1/3 innings.
Since returning from Tommy John surgery in 2012, the left-hander is 24-20 with a 2.29 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 365 2/3 innings. He is striking out 9.4 batters per nine innings in his career.
Mets SP Jacbo deGrom throws eight shutout innings in victory
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/25/15) Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom padded his bid to be in this year's All-Star Game with a brilliant performance on Thursday against the Brewers. The reigning NL Rookie of the Year twirled eight scoreless innings, allowing just four hits and zero walks while striking out seven. He finished with an even 100 pitches on the afternoon, as he put an end to the Mets' seven-game losing streak.
The dominant effort lowered deGrom's ERA to 2.15, and improved his record to 8-5. The win was the first for deGrom since June 7.
"He's got tremendous stuff," manager Terry Collins said, per the Star-Ledger. "He knows how to use it. His last six, seven starts have been outstanding. He's the guy we saw last year. This is legit. He's not going through any sophomore slump."
Mets SP Jacob deGrom takes loss despite quality start on Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/19/15) Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom was excellent in a losing effort on Friday against the Braves. deGrom gave up two runs on four hits over 7 1/3 innings. He walked one and struck out three, as he was pretty much on cruise-control for most of the evening, which resulted in a 2-1 loss.
deGrom (7-5, 2.34 ERA) was ultimately let down by the offense and defense of the Mets. In the eighth inning with the Mets leading 1-0, deGrom gave up a leadoff double to Andrelton Simmons, and a couple of infield miscues lead to a go-ahead, two-run double by Jace Peterson, which was deGrom's un-doing.
"I think I was just locating all of my pitches again. Mixing it up and being able to locate whenever I needed to," deGrom said, per MLB.com. "It's frustrating, but we're playing again tomorrow, so I look forward to winning that one."
The young right-hander, who turned 27 on Friday, has now posted seven consecutive quality starts. He'll look to get back in the win columm in his next start, scheduled for Wednesday in Milwaukee.
Jacob deGrom pitches well for Mets, gets no-decision
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(6/13/15) Jacob deGrom had a solid outing but saw his bullpen squander a victory as the Braves rallied to defeat the Mets in 11 innings Saturday.
deGrom made just one mistake in his seven innings of work, allowing a first inning homer to Atlanta's Freddie Freeman. After that, deGrom cruised, allowing just four more hits while striking out nine batters.
It was the sixth straight start deGrom has made where he's allowed two or fewer runs as he has lowered his ERA to 2.33.
|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.
