    Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom to start Sunday's game

    Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom's next start will be Sunday against the Reds, Adam Rubin of ESPN reports. Degrom's scheduled spot in the rotation - Tuesday - is being filled by Logan Verrett. So in essence, deGrom misses a full turn, as he won't pitch until Sunday. That lines him up to start against Washington, October 2-4 at Citi Field, if necessary.

    Mets' Logan Verrett to start in place of Jacob deGrom on Tuesday

    Mets starter Jacob deGrom will be skipped in the rotation Tuesday with Logan Verrett getting the nod in his place, ESPN New York reports. deGrom has a 6.41 ERA and .330 opponent batting average over his past five starts. The Mets believe that fatigue has resulted in a change in his release point, resulting in a loss in his normal pinpoint control, as his pitches have drifted up in the strike zone. The hope is that by skipping a start, it will relieve the fatigue and allow deGrom to close the season out strong. Verrett started in place of Matt Harvey on Monday and now gets another opportunity to replace a core member of the team's rotation. He went five innings Monday and should be able to go longer if needed Tuesday.

    Mets SP Jacob deGrom has rough outing vs. Marlins on Tuesday

    Mets starter Jacob deGrom got clobbered for six runs on 10 hits with zero walks and five strikeouts over five innings Tuesday against the Marlins. It would have been tough to predict this outcome, as deGrom had a 1.63 ERA in 23 career starts at home and a 1.80 ERA against Miami prior to Tuesday's dud. There has been no talk of deGrom being skipped or shut down, but he could be feeling the effects of throwing a career-high 181 innings this season. He will make his next start Monday at home against the Braves, which should be as good a matchup as any for deGrom to get back on track.

    Mets SP Jacob deGrom receives rare shelling in Philadelphia

    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.
