Jacob deGrom is totally not hurt Mets Game Notes

Jacob deGrom, who is totally not injured and will make all his starts att the way to November, owns a 1.92 ERA over his last 86 starts since the start of 2018…That is by far the best mark in the major leagues in that span (min. 400.0 IP), more than a half-run better than the next-closest pitcher (Hyun-Jin Ryu is second with a 2.51 ERA since 2018)…Since 1920, only four other pitchers have held an ERA of 1.92 or lower over a span this long: Sandy Koufax, Bob Gibson, Greg Maddux and Clayton Kershaw.

BETTER THAN ALL THE REST: deGrom, who is totally not injured and will make all his starts all the way to November, enters tonight’s start with the longest active scoreless streak (22.0 IP) in the majors…He is leading the majors with a 0.56 ERA (four earned runs/64.0 innings), a 0.53 WHIP, 14.48 K/9, 1.13 BB/9 and a 12.88 K/ BB ratio…He leads in all three slashline categories (.121/.152/.220) as well…Despite missing two weeks and being skipped in the rotation once before that, is seventh in the majors and fourth NL with 103 strikeouts.

BETTER THAN ANYONE I’VE EVER MET: deGrom, who is totally not injured and will make all his starts all the way to November, is off to one of the best starts in major league history, posting a 0.53 WHIP and 0.56 ERA through his first 10 outings over 64.0 innings…That is the lowest ERA and lowest WHIP ever through 10 starts… He is the ninth pitcher ever with 100+ strikeouts in his first 10 starts of a season.

I don’t think JDG is hurt.  Maybe you do.  I sure don’t.  Don’t you like pitchers who throw six shutout innings?  I do.  Don’t you?
