  • Jacob deGrom To Start Saturday Against Houston

    New York Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom will make his 2021 Grapefruit League debut Saturday when he faces the Houston Astros. deGrom already appears to be in midseason form during these early days of spring training, having hit 99mph with his fastball last Tuesday. deGrom finished 2020 with a 4-2 record, a 2.38 ERA, a 0.956 WHIP, and a 104:18 K:BB in 68 innings pitched. Heading into 2021, deGrom remains a bona fide fantasy ace who will be a safe bet for elite strikeout totals, league-leading ratios, and wins with a bolstered lineup behind him. deGrom should be one of the first two pitchers taken off of draft boards in all fantasy formats.

  • Matthew Allan Working With Jacob deGrom

    New York Mets right-handed pitching prospect Matthew Allan has been working with Jacob deGrom during the early part of spring training. The Mets have paired Allan with deGrom in nearly all of their drills. They are hoping the 19-year old prospect, who is currently the Mets' fourth-ranked MLB Pipeline prospect, can learn a bit of what has made deGrom so successful. The 2019 draft pick has impressed team officials so far in his first big-league spring camp. That said, he will not break camp with the Mets or see major league action in 2021. He projects as a future SP2 who should reach the majors sometime in 2023. If he can develop under the tutelage of deGrom, his ceiling could even be higher. Though not a redraft target for 2021, Allan should be rostered in all dynasty formats.

  • Jacob deGrom Throws Impressive Bullpen Session Tuesday

    New York Mets manager Luis Rojas reported that starting pitcher Jacob deGrom hit 99 mph in his bullpen session on Tuesday. Incredibly, it already sounds like deGrom is in midseason form. deGrom followed up his second consecutive National League Cy Young award season in 2019 by posting another gem in 2020. He finished 2020 with a 4-2 record, a 2.38 ERA, a 0.956 WHIP, and a 104:18 K:BB in 68 innings pitched. Heading into 2021, deGrom remains a matchup-proof fantasy ace. deGrom will again be a safe bet for elite strikeout totals and league-leading ratios. Win totals, which have alluded deGrom the past few years, may even see a boost in 2021 with the Mets having bolstered their lineup with the addition of, among others, Francisco Lindor and James McCann.
