DeGrom allowed one run on one hit over four innings while striking out three in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.
His 2-1 pitch to Matt Carpenter in the fourth inning caught too much of the plate and was blasted over the left-field wall, but otherwise deGrom was untouchable Wednesday. The perennial Cy Young candidate now has a 1.29 ERA, 0.29 WHIP and 5:0 K:BB through seven spring frames as he gears up for Opening Day.
DeGrom threw 51 pitches in a simulated game Friday and gave up a home run to J.D. Davis on a hanging curveball, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
The two-time Cy Young Award winner threw the curve only 2.9 percent of the time last season, but he's hoping to make it a bigger part of his arsenal. "I've been trying to work on the curveball a little bit in between," deGrom said afterward. "It's been good in the 'pen, but for some reason in the game it seems to pop up. I'm trying to have it come out of my hand like a fastball and try to throw one on the plate. That one I just hung." The last thing hitters want to hear is that the right-hander has another weapon at his disposal, but he's been getting by OK without a curveball, posting an ERA under 2.50, a WHIP under 1.00 and a K/9 above 11.0 in both of the last two seasons.
DeGrom completed his first live batting practice session of the spring Thursday, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.
DeGrom threw approximately 30 pitches to Michael Conforto and Yoenis Cespedes during the session, inducing several swinging strikes from both hitters, per Thosar. The 31-year-old looks to have picked up right where he left off following back-to-back Cy Young-winning seasons, and he'll have a valid case for being the first pitcher off the board during fantasy drafts this spring.
DeGrom won the 2019 NL Cy Young Award on Wednesday.
The 31-year-old once again received 29 of 30 first place votes to beat out Hyun-Jin Ryu and Max Scherzer for the award. DeGrom recorded a 2.43 ERA with a 255:44 K:BB over 32 starts in 2019. His 11 wins are the second-lowest total by a Cy Young Award winner behind his total of 10 wins last season, but he proved once again last season how dominant he can be even with inconsistent run support.
DeGrom (11-8) picked up the win in Wednesday's 10-3 victory over the Marlins, giving up only two hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings while striking out seven.
Once again, deGrom's record belies how well he pitched in a season. The right-hander finishes 2019 with a 2.43 ERA (second in the majors to Hyun-Jin Ryu), 0.97 WHIP (tops in the NL) and 255 strikeouts (also leading the NL), and he was especially strong down the stretch with the Mets trying in vain to reach the postseason, posting a 1.29 ERA, 0.71 WHIP and 41:5 K:BB through 35 innings in September. A second Cy Young Award could be coming his way.
DeGrom (10-8) notched the win after giving up four hits while striking out nine over seven scoreless innings Friday night against the Reds.
DeGrom was lights out Friday night, hurling 70 of 96 pitches for strikes on the way to victory. The reigning Cy Young winner has surrendered just one run over his last three outings, and he's worked seven frames in each of his last seven starts. DeGrom owns a sparkling 2.51 ERA and 0.99 WHIP with 248 punchouts over 197 innings this year.
DeGrom didn't factor into the decision Saturday against the Dodgers despite striking out eight in seven scoreless innings and allowing just three hits.
DeGrom tossed a gem, allowing just four total baserunners (including a hit by pitch). Hyun-Jin Ryu was equally excellent, however, throwing seven scoreless frames of his own, though the Mets would eventually win the contest after both starters had left the game. DeGrom lowered his ERA to 2.61 with the start and will look to whittle it down further Friday in Cincinnati.
DeGrom (9-8) allowed a run on three hits and a walk over seven innings Monday, striking out 11 batters and earning the win over Arizona.
Aside from a solo shot by Wilmer Flores, deGrom had the Diamondbacks completely dominated Monday. He lowered his ERA to 2.70 and bounced back after allowing four runs in each of his last two starts. The 31-year-old also owns a stellar 231:43 K:BB as he chases down a second straight NL Cy Young award. DeGrom will face the Dodgers at home Saturday.
DeGrom allowed four earned runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out six across seven innings Tuesday against the Nationals. He did not factor into the decision.
DeGrom worked effectively through the seventh frame, as he allowed just two earned runs on six hits. However, he was sent back out in the eighth inning and surrendered an infield single followed by a two-run home run to sour the outing, a point made worse by the bullpen blowing a big lead in the ninth and costing deGrom a win. Despite allowing four earned runs in consecutive starts, deGrom still owns a strong 2.76 ERA and 1.05 WHIP across 176 innings for the season. He'll look to get back on track in his next start, currently scheduled for Monday against Arizona.
DeGrom (8-8) took the loss against the Cubs on Thursday, pitching seven innings and giving up four runs on five hits and no walks while striking out seven.
DeGrom was victimized by a pair of Victor Caratini homers that accounted for all four runs scored against him, the second of which was a three-run shot in the seventh inning that broke open a 1-1 tie. The disappointing outing snapped a string of 17 consecutive starts in which deGrom gave up less than four runs and marked his first loss since June 28. The 31-year-old will try to get back in the win column when he travels to Washington to take on the Nationals on Tuesday in his next scheduled start.
DeGrom yielded one run on four hits and a walk while striking out 13 over seven innings Friday night against the Braves.
The right-hander allowed his lone run in the sixth inning on a single to center, but he got it right back with a solo shot in the bottom half of the inning -- his second homer of the year and the third of his career. At one point, deGrom fanned eight batters in a row, tying his career-best streak. The 31-year-old continues to put together yet another stellar season, as he now sports a 2.56 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with a 207:39 K:BB over 162 innings.
DeGrom (8-7) picked up the win Saturday, allowing one run on three hits and two walks over seven innings while striking out five in a 4-1 victory over the Royals.
The right-hander retired the first 10 batters he faced en route to his 18th quality start of the season, and deGrom hasn't given up more than three runs in a start since May 17. He'll carry a 2.61 ERA and 194:38 K:BB through 155 innings into his next outing Friday, at home against Atlanta.
DeGrom yielded three unearned runs on four hits and a walk over five innings Sunday, striking out seven batters in the loss to Washington. He did not factor in the decision, though.
All three runs that deGrom allowed crossed the plate after a Pete Alonso throwing error in the first inning. He allowed just two hits after that unfortunate inning, both coming off the bat of Anthony Rendon. The reigning NL Cy Young winner now owns a 2.68 ERA and 189:36 K:BB this season. DeGrom will take the mound in Kansas City on Saturday.
DeGrom (7-7) allowed two runs on five hits with one walk and eight strikeouts across seven innings while earning a victory in the first game of a doubleheader against the Marlins on Monday.
This broke a streak of deGrom allowing one run or fewer in four straight starts, but still, he owns a 1.09 ERA in his last five outings. DeGrom may only have a .500 record, but the rest of his numbers are stellar -- 1.07 WHIP, .222 batting average against and 182 strikeouts in 143 innings. He will pitch again Sunday at home against the Nationals.
DeGrom recorded 11 strikeouts and gave up one run on five hits and two walks through seven innings in a no-decision against the White Sox on Wednesday.
DeGrom mowed down the White Sox with his seventh double-digit strikeout performance. The 31-year-old racked up 21 swinging strikes in his 116 pitches and has a 2.04 ERA in his last 13 starts. Overall, deGrom has a 6-7 record with a 2.78 ERA through 22 starts and will make his next start Monday against the Marlins at Citi Field.
DeGrom (6-7) threw seven shutout innings while allowing four hits with one walk and nine strikeouts on his way to a victory against the Padres on Thursday.
The 31-year-old has been in vintage form lately, allowing one run in his last 19 frames. He's thrown 17 straight shutout innings across three outings, winning two of them. Like last season, deGrom is struggling to earn victories, but he does possess a 2.86 ERA and 1.09 WHIP with 163 strikeouts in 129 innings. He will pitch next at the White Sox on Wednesday.
DeGrom fired seven scoreless innings Friday, allowing three hits and three walks while striking out 10, but he did not factor in the decision in an extra-inning loss to the Giants.
DeGrom and Giants starter Tyler Beede exchanged zeroes deep into the game, but neither pitcher's excellent outing would be recognized in the decision. The Mets ace lowered his ERA to 3.02 with a 1.11 WHIP and 154 strikeouts in 122 innings this season, and deGrom is next expected to face the Padres at home Thursday.
DeGrom (5-7) allowed one run on six hits and three walks over five innings Sunday, striking out six and earning the win over Miami.
DeGrom usually has a stellar outing and gets let down by his offense, but this time the team earned him a victory despite his lackluster performance. The nine baserunners he allowed were his most since May 17 and it was his second straight outing with three walks. Still, he owns a terrific 144:28 K:BB and 3.21 ERA. DeGrom will take the mound in San Francisco on Saturday.
DeGrom didn't factor into the decision Friday, giving up two runs on three hits and three walks over seven innings while striking out 10 in a 7-2 loss to the Phillies.
The right-hander struck out double-digit batters for the third time in his last six starts and the fifth time overall this season while extending his quality start streak to seven outings. Despite his 2.68 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 61:7 K:BB through 47 innings over that stretch, deGrom has only won one of those seven trips to the mound, as the Mets' mediocre offense and volatile bullpen continue to let him down.
DeGrom (4-7) took the loss Friday, giving up three runs on six hits and two walks over six innings while striking out seven as the Mets were downed 6-2 by Atlanta.
The right-hander fired 71 of 107 pitches for strikes, but deGrom once again didn't get enough run support to turn his 11th quality start of the season into a win. He'll take a 3.32 ERA and 128:22 K:BB through 103 innings into his next outing July 5, at home against the Phillies.
