  • Rangers' Jacob deGrom: Gets massive five-year deal

    DeGrom signed a five-year, $185 million contract with the Rangers on Friday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. The contract includes a conditional sixth year that would make the deal worth $222 million. He has a full no-trade clause. The commitment from ownership in Texas has been quite impressive, as they laid out $556 million for Corey Seager, Marcus Semien and Jon Gray last offseason. DeGrom unsurprisingly opted for a longer contract than he might have been offered by other teams, as durability is the only question mark with him. The 34-year-old righty logged a 3.08 ERA, 2.13 FIP and 0.75 WHIP in 64.1 innings last season with the Mets after dealing with a shoulder injury for the first four months. He dealt with an elbow injury in 2021. According to Statcast park factors, Globe Life Field is the 19th most hitter-friendly park while Citi Field ranked 26th, so it's a slight park downgrade and a major supporting cast downgrade.

  • Jacob deGrom: Opts out of contract

    DeGrom declined his $30.5 million player option for 2023 on Monday, becoming a free agent. DeGrom chose to exercise the opt-out clause in the five-year, $137.5 million contract extension he signed in March 2019 to try his luck in free agency for the first time since being drafted by the Mets in 2010. Though he was bogged down by a shoulder injury to open the campaign, the 34-year-old was electric when on the mound this season, producing a 3.08 ERA and 0.75 WHIP with 102 punchouts over 64.1 innings in 11 starts. After making at least 30 starts in four of his first six seasons in the league, deGrom has logged only 38 total outings over the last three years. Even so, deGrom maintains a career 2.52 ERA over nine MLB seasons, and his otherworldly numbers on a per-start basis make it likely that he earns the largest average annual value contract for any pitcher in this season's free-agency class. The Mets will presumably make retaining deGrom a high priority, but expect several contending clubs to at least put forth competitive offers.

  • Mets' Jacob deGrom: Officially starting Saturday

    DeGrom (finger) will start Saturday's Game 2 of the NL Wild Card Series against the Padres, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. This was always expected, though manager Buck Showalter briefly entertained the idea of saving deGrom for the NLDS. Any thought of that went out the window when Max Scherzer was rocked for seven runs -- including four homers -- in Friday's Game 1 loss. DeGrom left his final start of the regular season with a blister on his hand, but Showalter said Thursday that "we don't foresee it to be an issue."

  • Mets' Jacob deGrom: Blister again downplayed

    Manager Buck Showalter downplayed deGrom's blister Thursday and said, "we don't foresee it to be an issue," Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. The veteran right-hander dealt with the blister across his final two starts of the regular season, but it appears it won't affect his outlook for the start of the playoffs. Max Scherzer is pitching Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series versus the Padres on Friday, and deGrom is expected to take the mound either Saturday or Sunday, depending on the outcome of the series opener.

  • Mets' Jacob deGrom: Unconcerned about blister

    DeGrom isn't concerned about the blister that forced an early exit from his start Friday against Atlanta, saying, "This will be fine," Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. DeGrom's three runs allowed in six innings were a disappointment by his lofty standards, though his 11 strikeouts and no walks were sharp marks. It looks as though he'll have a chance to start Wednesday against Washington, though he might only be asked to do so if playoff seeding is on the line.

  • Mets' Jacob deGrom: Dealing with blister

    DeGrom (5-4) exited Friday's start against Atlanta with a blister, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. He gave up three earned runs on five hits while striking out 11 and taking the loss. The right-hander threw 86 pitches and could have stayed in for the seventh inning if not for the blister. Austin Riley and Matt Olson hit back-to-back homers against deGrom at one point, so perhaps the blister was affecting his command. He tentatively lines up to pitch on the final day of the season against the Nationals, but the Mets may opt to give him more time to get past this blister in advance of the postseason.

  • Mets' Jacob deGrom: Will start Friday

    Manager Buck Showalter said deGrom's next start will come Friday in the series opener against Atlanta, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. DeGrom was originally projected to start Saturday, but he will be moved up a day and go toe-to-toe with Atlanta's ace, Max Fried. DeGrom has faced Atlanta twice this season, allowing a combined five earned runs with 21 strikeouts over 12.1 innings.

  • Mets' Jacob deGrom: Pounded for five runs in loss

    DeGrom (5-3) gave up five earned runs on six hits and four walks while striking out five over four innings to take the loss in a 10-4 defeat against the Athletics on Saturday. DeGrom had his worst start of the season in what appeared on paper like a very favorable matchup against one of the weaker lineups in baseball. He opened the game in an uncharacteristic fashion by loading the bases on a single and back-to-back walks. It was the first time that he allowed two or more walks over his past 13 starts. Dermis Garcia then hit a catchable line drive to left field that was played terribly by Jeff McNeil, who tripped and fell on the play, allowing two runs to score. DeGrom still boasts a 2.93 ERA and will look to bounce back into his usual form in his next expected start at Atlanta.

  • Mets' Jacob deGrom: Fans 13 in no-decision

    DeGrom allowed three runs on four hits while striking out 13 in five innings in a 7-3 win Sunday against Pittsburgh. He did not factor into the decision. DeGrom was nearly unhittable through the first five innings, allowing a double to Oneil Cruz to begin the game before striking out 13 of the next 15 batters he faced. The Pirates got to him in the sixth, though, as the first two batters recorded singles and Cruz deposited a pitch into the seats for a three-run homer. DeGrom has allowed homers in four of his last five appearances and has allowed three runs in each of his last two starts. With Sunday's 13 punchouts, he's struck out 44.1 percent of batters faced this year. His next start will likely be next weekend in Oakland.

  • Mets' Jacob deGrom: Saddled with second loss

    DeGrom (5-2) took the loss Tuesday, allowing three runs on four hits over six innings against the Cubs. He struck out 10. A solo home run in the top of the second and a couple of timely hits and sacrifices in the fourth led to deGrom taking his second loss, despite another quality start. With 10 strikeouts and no walks Tuesday, he recorded double-digit strikeouts for the third time in eight starts and owns a marvelous 73:4 K:BB. He will take a 2.01 ERA into his next start.

  • Mets' Jacob deGrom: Blanks Bucs in Wednesday's nightcap

    DeGrom (5-1) picked up the win in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Pirates, allowing three hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings. He struck out eight. Chris Bassitt fanned 10 batters while giving up just one run in the matinee as the Mets swept the twin bill, and deGrom answered with a dominant start of his own in the nightcap. The two-time Cy Young Award winner fired 59 of 91 pitches for strikes and let only one Pittsburgh baserunner get into scoring position en route to his fifth straight quality start. Since making his season debut at the beginning of August, deGrom boasts a 1.66 ERA, 0.55 WHIP and 63:4 K:BB through 43.1 innings.

  • Mets' Jacob deGrom: Flusters Dodgers in victory

    DeGrom (4-1) earned the win over the Dodgers on Wednesday, pitching seven innings and allowing one run on three hits and one walk while striking out nine batters. DeGrom faced a challenge against MLB's highest-scoring team, but he came out on top while completing seven frames for the first time this season. The right-hander didn't give up his first hit until the fifth inning, and the only run against him came on a Mookie Betts homer in the sixth. DeGrom struck out exactly nine batters for the third straight game while racking up a whopping 25 swinging strikes -- the second time in only six starts that he has reached that mark this season. Despite missing most of the season with a shoulder injury, deGrom remains among the league's elite pitchers, and he's posted dominant numbers with a 1.98 ERA, 0.55 WHIP and 55:3 K:BB through 36.1 innings thus far.

  • Mets' Jacob deGrom: Notches nine strikeouts in win

    DeGrom (3-1) earned the win over Colorado on Thursday, pitching six innings and allowing one run on three hits and one walk while striking out nine batters. DeGrom served up a sixth-inning solo home run to Ryan McMahon, but that was the extent of the damage against him. The right-hander racked up 17 swinging strikes and nine punchouts while notching his third straight quality start. DeGrom has yet to reach 100 pitches in a game this season -- he threw 87 on Thursday -- but that hasn't held him back from recording plenty of strikeouts or from entering the win column. Through five starts, he has three wins while posting a 2.15 ERA and minuscule 0.55 WHIP along with a jaw-dropping 46:2 K:BB over 29.1 innings.

  • Mets' Jacob deGrom: Starting Thursday vs. Rockies

    DeGrom will start Thursday against the Rockies, Deesha Thosar of Fox Sports reports. He was originally going to pitch Tuesday against the Yankees, but the Mets pushed him back. It's good to know it was not due to anything physically serious enough for him miss a start this week. This allows deGrom to line up to face the Dodgers next week.

  • Mets' Jacob deGrom: Tagged with first loss

    DeGrom (2-1) took the loss against Atlanta on Thursday, allowing three runs on five hits and no walks while striking out nine batters over 6.2 innings. In many ways, deGrom was his usual dominant self in the outing -- he racked up 20 swinging strikes and fanned nine batters while giving up just five hits. However, the right-hander surrendered a pair of runs in the third inning, and an infield single by the final batter he faced in the contest (Vaughn Grissom) came back to bite him when Michael Harris II followed with a run-scoring double off reliever Seth Lugo. DeGrom ended up being charged with a season-high three runs, but the loss does nothing to lessen his status as one of fantasy's premier matchup-proof starters.

  • Mets' Jacob deGrom: Strikes out 10 for win

    DeGrom (2-0) gave up two hits and no walks while striking out 10 over six shutout innings to earn the win in a 1-0 victory over the Phillies on Saturday. DeGrom was his usual dominant self in Saturday night's pitching duel against Aaron Nola. He racked up the 10 strikeouts on 19 swinging strikes by peppering the zone with his hard fastball and mixing in a heavy dose of his nasty slider. The scoreless appearance drops his ERA to 1.62 over three starts during this injury-shortened season. The 34-year-old right-hander now has 28 strikeouts in 16.2 innings pitched and has walked only one batter. It is worth seeing if he can continue to increase his workload from the 76 pitches he threw against the Phillies. He is tentatively expected to make his next start at Atlanta.

  • Mets' Jacob deGrom: Strikes out 12 in first win

    DeGrom (1-0) allowed two runs on a hit and a walk while striking out 12 through 5.2 innings, earning the win Sunday over Atlanta. DeGrom fell one out shy of a quality start, but he stretched out to 76 pitches (50 strikes) in his second outing of the season. He's already racked up 18 strikeouts in 10.2 innings. In Sunday's start, he averaged 99.1 mph on his fastball and topped out at 101.6 mph, so there's little to be concerned about with his velocity. He'll carry a 2.53 ERA and 0.47 WHIP into his next start, currently projected as a home outing against the Phillies next weekend.

  • Mets' Jacob deGrom: Excels in season debut

    DeGrom (shoulder) didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Nationals, allowing one run on three hits while striking out six and walking none. DeGrom fared about as well as could have been expected in his season debut, throwing 46 of 59 pitches for strikes across five frames. The flamethrower was on a pitch count after returning from a lengthy absence, otherwise the Mets would have let him continue mowing down Washington's offense. DeGrom threw 13 pitches at 100 miles per hour or higher, topping out at 101.6 mph and averaging 99.7 mph overall.

  • Mets' Jacob deGrom: Activated for season debut

    The Mets reinstated deGrom (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list to start Tuesday's game in Washington. Just as the team had announced a few days earlier, deGrom will make his first start with the Mets since July 7, 2021 after he recently wrapped up a four-outing rehab assignment in the minors. In his final outing with Triple-A Syracuse on July 27, deGrom built up to four innings and 67 pitches, so he could have some light restrictions with his workload as he returns to the mound for the big club. The two-time Cy Young Award winner will line up for a two-start week, with his second turn set to come Sunday versus Atlanta at Citi Field.

  • Mets' Jacob deGrom: Making 2022 debut Tuesday

    DeGrom (shoulder) will start Tuesday's game against the Nationals, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. DeGrom made four starts during his recent rehab assignment, and he posted a 2.84 ERA and 0.87 WHIP in 12.2 innings. While he gave up four runs in four innings during Wednesday's outing, he felt good afterward and will make his 2022 debut Tuesday on an extra day of rest. The right-hander threw 67 pitches during his most recent start, so it's possible that he'll have his workload monitored during Tuesday's matchup in Washington.
