Mets Likely to Explore Extension for Jacob deGrom

Another great season by Jacob deGrom has the Mets thinking about a possible extension for the right-handed starter according to Jon Heyman of Fan Rag Sports.

DeGrom, 29, is making $4,050,000 this season and will be arbitration eligible this offseason for the second time. He doesn’t become a free agent until after the 2020 season.

The slender ace has gone 15-10 with a 3.53 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 3.50 FIP this season. He has set career highs with 31 starts, 201.1 innings pitched, 239 strikeouts and 10.7 K/9. He also has 11 double-digit strikeout games, which is the fourth most in a single season for a Mets pitcher.

During his Mets career, the former 9th round pick is 45-32 with a 2.98 ERA, 3.07 FIP and 1.12 WHIP in 680.2 innings since making his major league debut in 2014.
