2022 Player Outlook
He was the best pitcher in baseball for 15 starts last season. The problem being that he last just 15 starts due to arm troubles. You are a fan of the Mets you have to be suffering from PTSD right now anytime you hear arm troubles with your starting staff. When healthy, deGrom was possibly the leagues MVP, going 7-2 with a 1.08 ERA while striking out 146 over 92 innings. He allowed only 11 runs over 15 starts. So, what are we supposed to do for this upcoming season? By all accounts deGrom is ready to pitch but we have to wonder if the Mets will have any limitations on him to start out the season to ensure he is able to make it through a full year. He is currently coming off the board as the eighth overall pitcher and is still being drafted among the top two rounds so while their is risk to the play, many are still taking the chance.
