Jacob deGrom lined up to return Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Mets manager Terry Collins indicated Tuesday that pitcher Jacob deGrom is lined up to return to the rotation Saturday against the Dodgers, Newsday reports.

deGrom has been sidelined since Aug. 7, but his shoulder injury looks looks to be keeping him out a minimal amount of time. He owns a 2.87 ERA and 94:33 K:BB ratio in 100 1/3 innings.


Jacob deGrom on track to return next weekend


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom said his injured shoulder was fine after throwing a 20-pitch bullpen session Sunday, according to ESPN. deGrom is expected to have a more intense bullpen session later this week, as he gears up for a potential return from the disabled list next weekend against the Dodgers.

"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." 


Jacob deGrom could return to rotation next weekend


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom is expected to throw for the first time Saturday, ESPN.com reports, and manager Terry Collins thinks he might miss just the minimum amount of time.

"Is he going to come off on time?" Collins said. "History would say, yeah, probably due to the issue he had. But he may not."

Though deGrom was shut down last weekend due to rotator cuff tendinitis, this injury is clearly not considered serious at this point. He could make his return to the rotation Saturday against the Dodgers. 


Jacob deGrom to throw in 5-6 days


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom will throw in five to six days, according to MetsBlog.

deGrom is dealing with a rotator cuff issue. He hopes to miss only two starts due to the injury. Through 16 starts, deGrom posted a 2.87 ERA. 


Jacob deGrom placed on DL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) The Mets have placed promising right-hander Jacob deGrom on the 15-day disabled list with a shoulder injury.

deGrom has been sensational since mid-June. He has surrendered just 12 runs in his last 59 1/3 innings pitched with 60 strikeouts. He's 6-5 with a 2.87 ERA. He has eight quality starts in his last nine outings.


Jacob deGrom getting sore shoulder checked out


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom was sent back to New York to get tests on his sore right shoulder, reports ESPN.com. DeGrom said the shoulder didn't bother him during his Thursday start, but in the couple days afterward.

The 26-year-old has produced six straight quality starts while winning his last five decisions. He's 6-5 with a 2.87 ERA in 16 starts, with 94 strikeouts in 100 1/3 innings.


Jacob deGrom not as dominant Thursday against Nationals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Sizzling Mets starter Jacob deGrom cooled off a bit Thursday in Washington. But he still notched his sixth consecutive quality start.

deGrom surrendered three runs on seven hits, including a two-run homer to Ian Desmond, for a six-inning no-decision. He walked one and struck out four. He had given up just four runs in 34 2/3 previous innings.

He will seek another quality start Wednesday against the same Nationals.


Jacob deGrom wins fifth straight decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2014) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom turned in a dominant outing on Saturday, scattering two runs on four hits and one walk in 7 1/3 innings while striking out seven in his team's 4-2 victory over the Giants. Of his 101 pitches, 73 were strikes.

DeGrom has won five straight decisions and has improved to 6-5 on the year, putting him over .500 for the first time this season. Over his last five stars covering 34 2/3 innings, deGrom has allowed only four earned runs. He owns a 2.77 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP over 15 starts (94 1/3 innings). He will make his next start Thursday at Washington.

Jacob deGrom on a 185 innings limit


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom will be shut down around 185 innings, according to ESPN.

The club hasn't decided how to handle deGrom moving forward. He may just make all his starts on regular rest until he reaches his limit, or the team will get creative and find ways to skip him during the year. deGrom has been a standout thus far, posting a 2.79 ERA over 87 innings. Including his work in the minors, deGrom has roughly 60 innings left before he reaches his limit. 


Jacob deGrom tosses scoreless outing Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom tossed a scoreless outing Sunday against the Brewers.

deGrom lasted 6 1/3 innings, giving up four hits. He struck out four and walked two during the outing. deGrom was effective during the outing, not giving up his first hit until the third inning. Aside from his final inning of work, deGrom never put more than one hitter on during a single inning. He was pulled after giving up two singles in the sixth inning. 

With the win, deGrom improved to 5-5 on the year. His next start will come against the Giants.


Jacob deGrom tosses seven one-run innings in win Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom picked up a win Tuesday, giving up only one earned run on five hits and one walk in seven innings and striking out seven in his team's 3-1 victory over the Mariners.

deGrom (4-5) has dominated the competition while picking up three straight wins, giving up just two earned runs in 21 innings while striking out 26 and walking three. The impressive stretch gives him a 3.01 ERA and 79:29 K:BB ratio in 80 2/3 innings. deGrom is scheduled to do battle with the Brewers Sunday.


Jacob deGrom beginning to distinguish himself


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/15/2014) Twelve starts into his major-league career, opinions on Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom are understandably mixed. His minor-league numbers leave something to be desired, and while his 1.65 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 10.5 strikeouts per nine innings in his last five starts are certainly impressive, they've come against some of the most strikeout-prone lineups in the big leagues, including the Braves twice and the Marlins twice.

To me, though, that second points only holds so much water. I realize I cited it myself when I wrote about deGrom on July 9, after the fourth of those starts, but the hot streak was less evident at the time, especially since his previous start July 2 at Atlanta didn't even meet the criteria of a quality start. But now, he's had three seven-inning gems in his last five starts, allowing a grand total of one earned run in them. And most encouraging of all, two of those three starts were his second time facing a team, so it's not he's just catching teams by surprise.

Minor-league numbers matter up to a point because, at least for an unheralded prospect like deGrom, they're the most unbiased information available to us for the first year or so of his career, but the list of players to outperform their minor-league numbers during their careers is, of course, innumerable.

I'm not saying deGrom is must-add or anything, but five starts into this hot streak, I'm willing to take flier, especially given the lack of alternatives I'm finding on waivers this time of year. (Tom Koehler? John Danks? Shelby Miller? No thank you.)


Jacob deGrom cruises to third win Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom received plenty of run support Sunday against the Marlins, but he pitched pretty well regardless during a 9-1 win. He allowed one run on five hits and two walks, while striking out eight in seven innings.

deGrom (3-5) allowed just one walk and one single through three scoreless innings to begin the game. Though, he ran into some trouble in the fourth inning. After retiring the first two batters, Casey McGehee singled, Garrett Jones doubled and Marcell Ozuna gave the Marlins their only run on an infield single. deGrom stranded two runners, however, by striking out Ed Lucas for the final out in the fourth inning.

Following Ozuna's RBI single, deGrom allowed just a single and walk over the final 11 batters he faced. It was his second straight win. deGrom hasn't allowed more than three runs in five straight starts. He has at least eight strikeouts in his last three starts.

The Mets have not yet announced when deGrom will make his first start in the second half because they are waiting on the status of Jonathon Niese (shoulder) before finalizing their rotation plans.


Not ready to trust Jacob deGrom yet


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/9/2014) Jacob deGrom has shown enough flashes of potential over his last few starts that you wouldn't be wrong to take a flier on him in a 12-team mixed league, especially since the waiver wire, at least in competitive leagues, no longer abounds with starting pitcher talent.

But taking a flier on him isn't the same as putting your trust in him, and I'm not quite ready for the latter yet.

For one thing, his high strikeout rate is mostly the result of four starts: an 11-strikeout effort May 31 at the Phillies, a seven-strikeout effort June 21 at the Marlins, an eight-strikeout effort July 2 at the Braves and the latest 11-strikeout effort Tuesday, also against the Braves.

The Marlins have struck out the most of any team in baseball, and the Braves have struck out the fourth-most. The Phillies aren't quite as bad, but they've struck out the ninth-most and have several notable high-strikeout hitters.

deGrom wasn't a strikeout pitcher in the minors, never averaging more than 7.8 strikeouts per nine innings in a full season -- and that was in the lower levels. He wasn't a pitcher of any note in the minors, compiling a 3.62 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 58 starts, and if you look at his game log, you'll see he's been just as spotty so far in the majors, with his innings and walks varying as much from start to start as his strikeouts.

But watching him pitch, I'll admit he looks better than the numbers would suggest, and I would have said the same for Corey Kluber early last year. For that reason, I'm not overlooking deGrom in Fantasy. I'm just not ready to commit to him yet.


Jacob deGrom blows away Braves with 11 strikeouts Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom cruised to a win Tuesday, giving up seven hits over seven scoreless innings while striking out 11 and walking none in his team's 8-3 victory over the Braves.

deGrom (2-5) matched his season high for strikeouts while delivering his third scoreless outing in 11 starts. Tuesday's brilliant performance was his first time this season not issuing a walk. deGrom owns a 3.38 ERA and 64:26 K:BB ratio in 66 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to wrap up the team's pre-break slate Sunday against the Marlins.


Jacob deGrom Ks eight in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom pitched well in a losing effort against the Braves Wednesday night. The right-hander permitted three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out eight over five innings of a 3-1 defeat.

DeGrom dropped to 1-5 on the year, with a 3.77 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP over 10 starts (59 2/3 innings). He will get another crack at the Braves at home on Tuesday.

Jacob deGrom solid in no-deicsion


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom pitched well enough to pick up his second career win Friday, but the offense and bullpen didn't provide much help in a 3-2 extra-innings loss to the Pirates.

deGrom pitched into the seventh inning for the second start in a row, though he as unable to finish it this time around. He allowed two runs in 6 2/3 innings of work, with five hits and three walks. He struck out four batters on 90 pitches in the no-decision.

Despite just a 1-4 record, deGrom has had a solid rookie season so far. He has a 3.62 ERA with 45 strikeouts in 54 2/3 innings heading into his next start, set for Wednesday in Atlanta.  


Jacob deGrom earns first career win Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom picked up the first win of his rookie season Saturday, giving up just five hits and three walks over seven scoreless innings while striking out seven in his team's 4-0 victory over the Marlins.

DeGrom (1-4) opened his stint with the Mets by tossing four straight quality starts, but he was unable to find a win in any of them. He then surrendered 13 runs in 15 innings over his next three starts before righting the ship Saturday. DeGrom owns a 3.75 ERA and 41:21 K:BB ratio in 48 innings.


Jacob deGrom drops another decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2014) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom was not at his best again on Monday against the Cardinals in St. Louis, dropping to 0-4 on the year. The right-hander was charged with six runs on 12 hits and two walks while striking out two over 4 1/3 innings of a 6-2 defeat.

DeGrom owns a 4.39 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP through seven starts (41 innings). He will make his next start Saturday against the Marlins in Miami.

Jacob deGrom surrenders three runs in loss vs. Brewers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2014) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom was charged with a loss Wednesday after giving up three earned runs on nine hits and one walk in 5 2/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 3-1 defeat against the Brewers.

DeGrom (0-3) has pitched relatively well since joining the rotation in mid-June, but he has yet to pick a win. The Brewers were able to score one run each in the third, fourth and fifth innings before deGrom departed in the sixth in line for the loss. He owns a 3.44 ERA and 32:16 K:BB ratio in 36 2/3 innings. DeGrom is slated to face the Cardinals Monday.


Jacob deGrom falls flat in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom struggled through his worst start yet Thursday, in a 7-4 loss to the Cubs.

After opening his career with four straight quality starts, deGrom failed to live up to that standard this time around. He was tagged for four runs on five hits and three walks in five innings of work, while striking out a career-low three batters on 90 pitches.

Despite his worst outing, deGrom actually didn't take the loss this time around, instead settling for a no-decision. He remains winless through five starts, however, carrying an 0-2 record and 3.19 ERA into his next outing, set for Wednesday against the Brewers. 


Jacob deGrom strikes out 11 in no-decision vs. Phillies


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom didn't factor into the decision Saturday after giving up three earned runs on just three hits and two walks in 6 1/3 innings while striking out 11 in his team's 5-4 win over the Phillies.

DeGrom was brilliant through the first six frames, holding the Phillies scoreless on two hits and a walk while striking out 10, but he surrendered a three-run home run after the first two batters of the seventh inning reached base. Aside from that home run, he's kept the opposition off the scoreboard for two straight starts. He owns a 2.42 ERA and 25:12 K:BB ratio in 26 innings, which he'll take into Thursday's matchup with the Cubs.


Jacob deGrom should have had first MLB win Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom pitched well enough Monday against the Pirates to earn his first career win in his third major-league start. Unfortunately, the Mets' bullpen could not hold a late lead, costing the rookie pitcher his first major-league victory.

deGrom ran into some early trouble Monday, as he loaded the bases with one out in the first inning. Luckily, he escaped the jam with no damage, as he got Russell Martin to ground into an inning-ending double play.

deGrom had more problems in the second, as he allowed the first two runners to reach base. But once again he emerged unscathed, as he retired the next three batters in order.

The rookie tossed 6 2/3 scoreless innings, allowing five hits and a career-high five walks. He struck out four and left with a 2-0 lead, which the bullpen blew in the eighth inning, costing deGrom the chance to celebrate his first win.

With Dillon Gee (lat) suffering a setback in his recovery, deGrom is expected to remain in the rotation for the time being. His next scheduled start is for Saturday at Philadelphia.


Jacob deGrom hurt by longball in second loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom had trouble keeping the ball in the yard Wednesday, in a 4-3 loss to the Dodgers.

Though he managed to record his second quality start in as many attempts, deGrom still took the loss thanks to three solo home runs. He allowed  three runs on just four hits in six innings of work, while walking three batters and striking out four.

deGrom has been mostly solid since joining the rotation, though he has two loss in two starts to show for it. He should get at least one more turn in the rotation, set for Monday against the Pirates. 


Jacob deGrom, Rafael Montero pitching for one spot


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) Though both pitched well in their major-league debuts this week, the Mets will only be able to keep one of their rookies in the rotation long term.

Manager Terry Collins told MLB.com Friday only one of Rafael Montero and Jacob deGrom will keep his job when Dillon Gee is able to return from the disabled list. That is expected to come May 26, so both pitchers will be fighting for a job in their next few turns in the rotation.
