Mets | Jacob deGrom could be moved to bullpen

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom, who is 0-2 with a 7.80 ERA in three starts this month, could be moved to the bullpen when SP Dillon Gee (lat) is activated from the disabled list. "Certainly (deGrom's) stuff could play in the bullpen," manager Terry Collins said. "The issue is his durability. Can he get up every day? Can he get up three days a week? That becomes the question - any time you're looking at a young pitcher who has not pitched out of the bullpen, are they going to be able to get up and get their arm ready? And if they get up, how long is it going to take to get their arm ready, because sometimes they've got to speed it up. One of the things we're going to have to do is watch him early and make sure we give him enough time to get loose." SP Daisuke Matsuzaka is another option to be moved to the bullpen when Gee rejoins the rotation.
