Mets | Jacob deGrom's velocity down

Tue, 17 May 2016 16:46:15 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom's velocity has been down of late. He averaged only 91 mph with his fastball in his last start Sunday, May 15, and threw a heater as low as 89 mph at one point in that game. DeGrom's fastball averaged 95 mph in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: DeGrom is sporting a tidy 2.50 ERA in six starts despite the decreased velocity. But his 5.8 K/9 is considerably low considering he struck out 9.7 hitters per nine innings in his breakout season last year. Decreased velocity can be a sign of an injury, so stay tuned. It could be attributed to a career-high 191 innings last year. This is certainly something to watch out for.

Mets | Jacob deGrom still not happy

Sun, 15 May 2016 18:16:05 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom said he is still not happy with his mechanics following a no-decision against the Colorado Rockies Sunday, May 15.

Fantasy Tip: Other than a lack of strikeouts, deGrom has remained a strong starting option this year, and he should only improve as he irons out his mechanics.

Rockies | CarGo ends pair of long droughts

Sun, 15 May 2016 17:29:29 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with two runs scored and put the brakes on a pair of surprisingly long dry spells on Sunday, May 15, with a sixth-inning solo shot off New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom. The homer was his first in 25 games and snapped a 17-game streak without an RBI.

Fantasy Tip: The effort has to be a relief for Gonzalez, who has five home runs and 13 RBI through 36 games. All owners need to remember about the 30-year-old is that he is still batting .295 after today's game despite going hitless in 13 at-bats over the previous four contests. Gonzalez has been a much better hitter on the road this season, which is exactly where he will go Tuesday when the Rockies travel to St. Louis to face the Cardinals.

Mets | Jacob deGrom working on mechanics

Wed, 11 May 2016 20:48:02 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom made in-game adjustments in his start Tuesday, May 10, and noticed that his front side was a little low in his delivery. He said his stuff was flat in the zone, and he gave up two early runs but ended up finishing seven innings.

"I came in and watched some video right after I came out," deGrom said after his previous start. "Last year my elbow was above my shoulder. This year it's not even getting close to above it, and my stride is toward the first-base side. I don't know if you see how far I'm falling off toward first base. There's some things to work on there."

Fantasy Tip: He's clearly fighting it on the mound, but deGrom still owns a 2.12 ERA. The strikeouts aren't there at 6.07 per nine innings, and opponents are hitting .274 against him, but there's still a lot of optimism. While he's not delivering SP1 results yet, deGrom is still a high-end DFS consideration each time out.

Mets | Jacob deGrom victorious after long layoff

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 15:07:47 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom was predictably rusty in his first start in 16 days but allowed one run on eight hits and struck out three over 5 2/3 frames in a win over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: It had been a trying two-plus weeks for deGrom, who missed time to recover from a lat issue and deal with a medical emergency with his newborn son. The 27-year-old ace should be a bit sharper - and is a recommended fantasy start - in his next scheduled turn against the San Francisco Giants on Saturday.

Braves | Erick Aybar not playing

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 09:44:43 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Sunday, April 24. 2B Daniel Castro will start at shortstop in place of Aybar. OF Kelly Johnson will start at second base, while 2B Jace Peterson will start in left field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson has gone 3-for-11 with three RBI over the last seven days but his hitting only .206 on the season. Owners probably could find better options to use in their lineups.

Mets | Jacob deGrom ready for Sunday

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 15:23:09 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom (lat) threw his bullpen session with no problems Friday, April 22, and is set to face the Atlanta Braves Sunday, April 24. Manager Terry Collins is hopeful that deGrom can throw 85 pitches Sunday. DeGrom hasn't pitched in a game since April 8.

Fantasy Tip: DeGrom is a much bigger fantasy risk this Sunday than ever before due to his recent injury woes and the fact he's had a long layoff. But the matchup couldn't be better against Atlanta. He's not worth paying up for in daily contests, but deGrom has a high floor in all other leagues.

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 23:18:14 -0700

Fantasy Tip: DeGrom has had a whirlwind past week or so, missing a start due to a latissimus muscle in his right side, as well as a medical emergency with his newborn son. Monitor his start Sunday before plugging him back into the active fantasy lineup.

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 13:37:20 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Issues with deGrom's newborn son have cleared up, and his lat appears to be doing better, so he will return. Immediately activate him in your lineup. The matchup against Atlanta is a nice one to come back to.
