Jacob deGrom utterly dominant against Braves on Sunday

by Dan Harris | Mets Correspondent | Sun, Aug 7th 11:15pm EDT

Jacob deGrom allowed two runs on a hit and walk over 5 2/3 innings against the Braves on Sunday. He struck out 12 and earned the win, moving to 1-0.

Fantasy Impact:

deGrom was perfect through 5 2/3 innings before giving up a walk and a home run. He was absurdly dominant, generating 25 whiffs on 76 pitches, including 18 on 20 swings on his slider. That 90% whiff rate represents the highest mark for any starting pitcher on any one pitch ever since tracking began in 2008. The simple fact is that so long as deGrom is healthy, he's the best pitcher in the game and it isn't particularly close. He will take on the Phillies next where he'll likely dominate again.
