Callaway Feels DeGrom’s Record Shouldn’t Factor in Cy Young Voting

According to Laura Albanese of Newsday, Mets manager Mickey Callaway told the media pregame that he feels Jacob deGrom’s win/loss record should not factor in the National League Cy Young voting.

“If the season ended now, he should win it, deGrom doing this with such limited support is one of the greatest pitching accomplishments I’ve ever seen,” Callaway said.

Callaway was also adamant that deGrom will not be held to an innings limit this season, though he’ll look to get him a few extra days down the stretch. “He’s going to be in a race for something else and it’s going to mean a lot to him,” Callaway said.

deGrom has been one of, if not, the best pitchers in baseball this season, despite posting a 6-7 record. He leads the majors with a 1.77 ERA, is tied for second in the NL and tied for sixth in the majors with 183 strikeouts and is in second in the NL with a 0.96 WHIP.
