In tonight’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies, Mets ace and 2x Cy Young Award winner Jacob deGrom exited only two innings in, after a mere forty pitches and giving up three earned runs. deGrom, who saw his 1.67 season ERA rise to 2.09 in the thick of a close Cy Young race against Trevor Bauer (Reds), Max Fried (Braves), Dinelson Lamet (Padres) and Yu Darvish (Cubs), was seen in the dugout with the trainer. Michael Wacha entered the game.
Mets Field Reporter Steve Gelb is reporting a right hamstring spasm, which is certainly a blessing for the Mets in the sense that it could have been worse. The team who ended last year with a rotation of deGrom, Marcus Stroman, Noah Syndergaard, Steven Matz and Zack Wheeler has seen that rotation crumble. Wheeler is now with the Mets, Stroman will likely never wear their uniform again and Syndergaard recently went under the knife with Tommy John Surgery.
deGrom has a 70-50 record complimented by (heading into tonight) his 2.58 lifetime ERA, 1335 Ks in 1155.2 IP. Over the last three seasons, he features a 2.01 ERA and 603 Ks in 475 IP.
