Jacob deGrom named NL Rookie of the Month for July

Jacob deGrom has been named the National League Rookie of the Month for July, a month in which the 26-year-old went 4-1 with a 1.39 ERA.

In five starts spanning 32 1/3 innings pitched in July, deGrom allowed just five earned runs, walked seven, and struck out 38.

During his first August start – this past Saturday – deGrom had a no-hit bid broken up with two outs in the seventh inning.

Overall in 2014, deGrom is 6-5 with a 2.77 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 94 1/3 innings pitched.

DeGrom was ticketed for the bullpen when he was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas in mid-May, but circumstances resulted in him instead entering the starting rotation – where he has thrived.

Great for Jacob. I only wish that David Wright could get away from this organization and reset what was once a potential HOF career.

You know if the Wilpons weren't so cheap and got a couple of real bats this past off season we would be in this race , But because Harvey was out they said lets tank 2014....  And use Harvey as an excuse .. Bad ownership !!

Our pitching is great, IF WE DONT GET A BIG BAT SOON, AND LET HIM GET ACCLIMATED WITH THIS TEAM, WE WONT BE COMPETITIVE , PERIOD.

Been watching baseball since age 9, and everytime the Mets got that big bat mid-season, we did well the following year IE:

Hernandez,Carter, Piazza ect, ect
