Jacob deGrom feel good, finally gets first win

In his eighth big-league start, Jacob deGrom tossed seven scoreless innings Saturday, limited the Marlins to five hits and three walks and got his first career win.

“To finally get it feels good,” he said after the win. “I was hoping to get it. I wouldn’t say it was bothering me. I was hoping to get it. It feels good to have one now.”

He allowed six runs and 12 hits against the Cardinals in his previous start.

“I think just the way I was attacking hitters,” deGrom said, comparing his success against the Marlins to struggling against the Cardinals. “I was going right after them today.”

Thanks to new hitting coach Lamar Johnson, deGrom made a minor mechanical adjustment to his delivery, “just in case he was tipping pitches,” according to team reporter Adam Rubin (ESPN, June 19).

DeGrom is 1-4 with a 3.75 ERA in eight starts this season, during which he’s struck out 41 and walked 21 batters.

Well at least Lamar Johnson finally helped someone. Too bad it was a pitcher and not a hitter as is his actual job. Perhaps the Mets should have Dan Warthen try to fix CY

They better not take deGrom out of the rotation no matter what!  You wouldn't do that to Wheeler or Harvey!  Colon & Dice K can be traded as the deadline looms!  If no one wants Dice K, he has proven he can go into the pen & be very effective for us!  That is what needs to happen!  Only problem is that Terry Collins the Mets horrible manager doesn't like nor know how to work with the kids, and will always favor the vets!

Do we trade Dice K when Gee returns???? DeGrom to the bullpen????

@cyjabeli  Why would deGrom go to the BP when Dice K has already proved quite successful pitching out of the pen this season?
