Jacob deGrom Gets the Call; Germen to DL


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!
