Mets starter Jacob deGrom allowed two earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out 14 over seven innings in a loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.
As has often been the case over the last few years, deGrom pitched well but received very little support from his offense. Despite a 2.14 ERA through 11 starts, deGrom is just 4-2 on the season. He is scheduled to take on the Nationals in his last start of the season, but it's possible the Mets decide to shut him down with little to play for at this point.
Mets ace Jacob deGrom (hamstring) is in line to start on Monday.
deGrom threw a side session Saturday, which clearly went well. He'll make two more starts this season. This is fantastic news for those in weekly matchups that begin on Monday.

deGrom left Wednesday's start with the hamstring issue but it appears as if he's avoided a serious injury. He should be in line for two more starts during the regular season.
Jacob deGrom was removed from Wednesday's start against the Phillies due to a hamstring spasm.
"I'm not too worried it's going to be a long-term thing," deGrom said afterwards. The ace right-hander apparently felt something in his last start but kept it quiet. He still thinks he'll make two more starts to close out the season but the Mets might opt to play things safe with him. We should get another update in the coming days.
