DeGrom (15-10) allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits with no walks across six innings while taking the loss Sunday against the Nationals. He struck out 11. DeGrom allowed a two-run home run to Trea Turner in the third inning and was saddled with an unearned run following a single and an error in the fifth. That tally was enough to sink the right-hander to his 10th loss despite what was a strong overall performance. DeGrom has been one of the only bright spots for the Mets this season and continues to throw well down the stretch, with a 28:5 K:BB and a 2.37 ERA over his last three starts. His final turn in the rotation for 2017 will come Friday against the Phillies.
DeGrom will make his next start Sunday against the Nationals, Marc Carig of Newsday reports. DeGrom was initially supposed to take the mound for Friday's series opener, but he's apparently dealing with an upset stomach and some nausea, so the Mets will push his start back by a couple of days. He's not expected to miss a turn in the rotation due to the ailment, but Robert Gsellman and Matt Harvey will both move their scheduled starts up by a day to accommodate, with Gsellman now pitching Friday and Harvey on Saturday. DeGrom owns a 3.55 ERA and 228 strikeouts through 195.1 innings this season.
DeGrom (15-9) earned the win after allowing one run on five hits and two walks in seven innings Saturday against the Braves. He struck out seven. The Braves scored their only run on a Freddie Freeman solo homer in the sixth inning, but otherwise deGrom was stellar. He's now allowed just three runs and racked up 17 strikeouts in 13 innings over his past two starts after struggling in his two starts prior. The 29-year-old will look to finish his year strong having already set career highs in wins (15), innings (195.1) and strikeouts (228). He'll take a 3.55 ERA into his next start, which is scheduled for Friday against the Nationals.
DeGrom gave up two runs on three hits and three walks in six innings while striking out 10 on Sunday, but he didn't factor into the decision as the Mets lost 10-5 to the Reds. It was the second time in deGrom's last four starts that he punched out 10. Though he has 14 wins on the year, his 3.63 ERA, 10.6 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9 continue to fly under the radar because he plays for the Mets. He's poised to finish another season as a high-end fantasy hurler.
DeGrom (14-9) was bombarded for nine runs -- six earned -- on 10 hits and a pair of walks over just 3.2 innings in a 9-1 loss to the Phillies on Tuesday. The Mets' only ace left standing has been having a rough time of it lately, having been tagged for 24 runs (20 of those earned) over 31 innings spanning his last five starts -- four of which have resulted in defeat. This was deGrom's shortest outing of the season, and it certainly came at an inopportune moment for his fantasy owners. He'll start for the second time this week Sunday against the Reds with an eye on redemption.
