DeGrom didn't factor into the decision in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader, giving up three runs on five hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out 10. It's the fifth time in 12 starts deGrom has fanned 10 or more batters. The right-hander put together another Cy Young-worthy campaign in 2020, posting a 2.38 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 104:18 K:BB through 68 innings, but a lack of consistent run support from the Mets left him with only four wins.
DeGrom (4-2) allowed two runs on four hits and two walks over seven innings Monday, striking out 14 and taking the loss to the Rays. As usual, deGrom was dominant Monday but the Mets didn't provide much help at the dish. The 32-year-old tied his season best with 14 strikeouts while allowing just a pair of runs, one on a sacrifice fly and another from a solo shot by Nate Lowe. He's making a strong push toward his third straight NL Cy Young, sporting a 2.14 ERA and 94:16 K:BB. DeGrom will look to squeeze in one more start before the season ends in Washington this weekend.
DeGrom (hamstring) threw another side session Saturday and is expected to make his scheduled start Monday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. DeGrom exited Wednesday's start with a right hamstring spasm, but he shouldn't have to miss any turns through the rotation as manager Luis Rojas said Saturday that he's in line to start Monday. Assuming he's indeed able to return, the right-hander lines up for one more start in the regular season after Monday's outing.
DeGrom (hamstring) threw a side session prior to Friday's game, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports. The team received positive feedback about deGrom's latest throwing session. The right-hander left Wednesday's start with a right hamstring spasm, but it appears as though he's in line to be available for his next turn through the rotation Monday as long as he doesn't experience any setbacks.
DeGrom (hamstring) played catch and received treatment Thursday, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports. Manager Luis Rojas called it a "positive day," which is a good sign after the veteran right-hander was removed from Wednesday's start after two innings due to a right hamstring spasm. DeGrom's next turn through the rotation lines up for Monday, and he appears likely to make that start if he can avoid any setbacks over the weekend.
