According to multiple sources, Jacob deGrom has been called up to the Mets, and will join the team in the Bronx tomorrow.

Gonzalez Germen will be placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 6th, with a virus.

deGrom, 25, was having a sparkling year in Vegas at the time of the call-up. In seven starts, deGrom went 4-0 with a 2.58 earned run average over a span of 38.1 innings.

He will join a Mets bullpen that has been desperately seeking a change. All 58 of his career minor-league appearances have been as a starting pitcher, although he did work in relief in his college career at Stetson.

Wow! A Mets win over the Evil Empire, Mejia moved to the bullpen (A move I believe was beneficial for both the Mets and Jenrry), Montero getting the call earlier in the day, and now deGrom getting the call as well! The future is now and I couldn’t be more excited to see what these kids can do!

We wish you the best on your promotion, Jacob! Let’s see what ya got!
