Mets' Jacob deGrom strikes out 10 in loss to Red Sox


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/29/2015) Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom was firing on all cylinders during his start against the Red Sox on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to earn a victory.

deGrom allowed two runs on four hits in six strong innings of work. He struck out 10 batters and allowed just two walks in the loss. At one point, deGrom had a no-hitter through four innings.

With the loss, deGrom dropped to 12-7 on the season with a 2.32 ERA.


Mets' Collins: Jacob deGrom was ill during start Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2015) Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom was ill during his latest start Monday against the Phillies, manager Terry Collins said Wednesday. Collins added he didn't know deGrom was battling an illness until after he took the mound.

Collins said deGrom has since improved and is not in danger of missing his next start Saturday against the Red Sox.

The right-hander had one of the worst starts of his career Monday, allowing seven runs (six earned) on eight hits and three walks. He allowed three home runs.


Mets SP Jacob deGrom receives rare shelling in Philadelphia


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2015) The odds of Mets stud starter Jacob deGrom not winning when his team scored 16 runs Monday against the last-place Phillies are astronomical.

It's time for the math professors to get to work.

deGrom was indeed saddled with a no-decision after the worst performance of an otherwise brilliant career. He surrendered a career-high six earned runs in a career-low 2 2/3 innings before his merciful removal. He walked three, struck out three and allowed three home runs.

A three-run blast by Ryan Howard in the first set his demise in motion. Another by Domonic Brown in the third, followed by two walks, ended his night.

His ERA soared from 1,98 to 2.29 in the process.


Mets SP Jacob deGrom earns 12th win of season Tuesday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2015) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom was dominant throughout his start Tuesday against the Orioles.

deGrom allowed one run on five hits over 7 2/3 innings during the 5-3 win. He also struck out six and walked one. deGrom's lone mistake was giving up a solo home run to Gerardo Parra in the sixth inning.

deGrom is undefeated in his last seven starts (4-0). All seven outings have been quality starts.


Mets may look to skip starts for big three during September


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/18/2015) Mets starter Matt Harvey may be skipped a couple of times during September, as he approaches his innings limit. 

"There's a chance we might have to do that," manager Terry Collins said, per the Newark Star-Ledger

The Mets could also choose to skip starts for Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard, in order to keep them fresh for a possible postseason run. 


Mets SP Jacob deGrom dominant yet again in win


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/12/2015) Mets starter Jacob deGrom was on top of his game once again, cruising to his 11th victory of the season in a win over the Rockies on Wednesday. 

deGrom dominated the Colorado lineup over his seven innings of work, giving up just two hits while striking out 10 batters during his 103-pitch outing. About the only flaw on his night were four walks which tied a season-high.

After three straight no-decisions, deGrom improved to 11-4 on the season and lowered his ERA to 2.03. deGrom now has quality starts in 14 of his last 15 outings. 


Mets SP Jacob deGrom strong again in no-decision vs. Rays


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/7/2015) Jacob deGrom did not have his best stuff working on Friday, but the Mets right-hander was able to put up yet another solid outing. He limited the Rays to two runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings. He struck out seven and did not issue a walk, throwing 77 of his 108 pitches for strikes.

deGrom was done in by the longball in this start. Both runs he allowed came on solo home runs. The first was by Grady Sizemore in the fourth to give the Rays a 1-0 lead. Then James Loney crushed a pitch in the seventh, after the Mets had tied the game in the previous inning.

deGrom was left with a no-decision, as the Mets won the game 4-3--their seventh win in a row--with some late-inning heroics. 

This was just the third time in 21 starts this season that deGrom allowed more than one home run in a game. He has allowed two runs or fewer in each of his past five starts.


Mets SP Jacob deGrom overcomes rocky start for solid outing


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/1/2015) Mets ace Jacob deGrom battled and labored in his start against the Nationals on Saturday, but he came away with a no-decision in the 3-2 win. deGrom allowed two runs on six hits over six innings. He walked one and struck out seven, throwing a season-high 117 pitches.

deGrom got off to a rocky start, allowing two runs in the first inning. His pitch count was elevating, but he seemingly got stronger as the game went along. He did a good job of working out of trouble, keeping the Nationals off of the board the rest of the way.

The young right-hander owns a sparkling 1.54 over his past six starts for the Mets.


Mets SP Jacob deGrom continues dominance in no-decision


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/26/2015) Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom was simply great on Sunday against the Dodgers.

deGrom tossed 7 2/3 innings of scoreless ball, while allowing just two hits in a no-decision. He struck out eight batters and allowed just two walks.

deGrom now has an ERA of 2.08 with 128 strikeouts and 23 walks in 127 1/3 innings this season.


Mets SP Jacob deGrom gets 10th win of the season on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/21/2015) Mets starter Jacob deGrom made one mistake on Tuesday night, but still came away a winner against the Nationals. deGrom allowed two runs on three hits over six innings while striking out eight. He did not issue a walk, throwing 61 of his 82 pitches for strikes in the 7-2 victory.

The only runs deGrom gave up came on a two-run home run by catcher Wilson Ramos in the fifth inning. deGrom was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the top of the seventh with the Mets down 2-1. But they scored two runs in the seventh (and four more in the ninth), paving the way for deGrom to pick up the victory.

deGrom (10-6, 2.18 ERA), coming off his historic appearance in last week's All-Star game, has walked two or fewer batters in each of his last six starts, posting a 1.69 ERA over that stretch.

Mets' Jacob deGrom endures worst start in over a month Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/2/2015) Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom took the loss in his start against the Cubs on Thursday. deGrom allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings, his shortest outing and most earned runs allowed since May 11. deGrom walked two and struck out two, as his ERA rose to 2.30 on the season.

deGrom (8-6) didn't pitch all that poorly. But his offense and his defense failed to help him out in this one. The Mets' bats were stymied by opposing pitcher Jake Arrieta. 

A Mets' throwing error in the fifth inning allowed a go-ahead run to score, giving the Cubs a lead they would not give back. deGrom did give up a two-run home run to Jonathan Herrera in the sixth, but the Mets were already down 2-1 at that point, leaving deGrom with his sixth loss of the season.

"I didn't have the game I wanted," deGrom said, per MLB.com. "I had a tough time commanding my pitches. I was wild. I just struggled out there today.

"Even in the bullpen, I was struggling with my command," deGrom said. "It's happened before, and I've come out and had good command in the game. It's just one of those days."


Mets going to six-man rotation, Steven Matz to debut Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2015) 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
(6/25/2015) 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
(6/19/2015) 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
(6/13/2015) 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. 


Mets alter rotation plans, Dillon Gee to start Sunday vs. Braves


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2015) Dillon Gee is headed back to the Mets rotation for at least one start, as the team announced Friday he will start Sunday against the Braves. Noah Syndergaard, who was scheduled to start Sunday, has been pushed back to Monday against the Blue Jays.

Matt Harvey is now the probable pitcher for Tuesday, and he is expected to be followed in the rotation by Jonathon Niese, Bartolo Colon and Jacob deGrom.

The Mets are going to use a "light" six-man rotation, meaning they will slot in Gee when they can, according to ESPN.


Jacob deGrom earns win for Mets


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2015) Mets starter Jacob deGrom won his third straight start on Sunday, over Arizona.

Degrom went seven innings, allowing three runs, two earned, on five hits. He walked three and struck out 10. 

"You saw the ball come down," manager Terry Collins said, per ESPN.com. "The balls early in the game were right belt high on the plate. He started moving the ball around, pitching to the sides of the plate a little bit better. He used his changeup much more effectively after the first inning."

Degrom's next start is Saturday, against Atlanta. 


Mets P Jacob deGrom strikes out 9, allows only two hits


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom pitched eight shutout innings in Monday night's 7-0 win over the Padres. 

He held the Padres to only two hits in the game. It's the second time in the past three games that deGrom was able to go eight innings without giving up a run.

"This is probably one of the best games I've seen him pitch," manager Terry Collins said after the game, per MLB.com. "And I've seen him pitch some really, really good ones."

It was a dominant performance that saw deGrom throw nine strikeouts and walk zero batters. His ERA is now 2.41 for the season.

"This is the best I've been at repeating it, staying on top of the ball and getting good downward movement like I did last year," deGrom said. "I think I'm just in a better rhythm now."

The next projected start for deGrom is on Sunday against the Diamondbacks. 


Mets planning to use six-man rotation into August


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) 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
(5/26/2015) 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.
