Jacob deGrom is the best baseball player in the world when he is healthy. That is undeniable at this time. Since the beginning of 2018, deGrom has posted 1.94 ERA, 205 ERA +; 12.0 K / 9 rating, and 0.881 WHIP in 581 innings included. No one else comes close to those figures. The problem has been deGrom’s inability to stay afloat. An MRI on deGrom’s arm revealed that the Mets’ ace showed a stress response to his right scapula; that could keep him out for a month to start 2022. DeGrom has been injured several times throughout his career. She underwent Tommy John surgery in 2010 and underwent a different surgery in 2016; to repair nerve damage to her elbow. While deGrom managed to cover the full seasons in 2018 and 2019 – both of which won the NL Cy Young Award; he managed to score 92 innings in 2021 before being sidelined with a hamstring injury. Yesterday, deGrom had problems returning to the mound.
The Injuries of Mets (deGrom sidelined)
These injuries add to the already long list of Mets strikers working on their injuries. Max Scherzer is currently listed as a daily and his Opening Day status is high in the air. Chris Bassitt suffered a concussion last season. Taijuan Walker has a history of serious injuries himself; we all know that Carlos Carrasco had to go through a comeback from cancer.
The 2021 Mets campaign was hampered by a series of serious injuries; although the deGrom injury itself is not enough to pull 2022 out of the tracks; the worst-case scenario could be for a team looking to fight for the ruling class title. World Series champion Atlanta and full Phillies.
The Mets case looks good, but to prevent bounce-back seasons from Francisco Lindor and Jeff McNeil; nothing comes out of the page. It’s hard to imagine a case led by Pete Alonso and Eduardo Escobar could compete with Acuña; Albies, Olson or Harper, Schwarber, and Castellanos. The Mets need their start to be able to carry and without deGrom which probably be in the first two months of the season; there are too many questions marks to be confident in the Mets ’ability to succeed.
Throughout 2021, in games where the Met’s inclusion allowed four or five runs, the Mets went 12-25. Sure, five runs are over, but not a ton of runs you have to win, yet the Mets could not compete. Indeed, there are areas where Mets have advanced in crime. Escobar is a good ingredient and Mark Canha has been a powerful batsman in the Oakland midfield, but the team also lost to Michael Conforto and Javy Báez. All in all, it doesn’t look like this Mets team will be any better than it was at the end of last season, and guess what? The team aims to end the season, going 21-37 between August, September, and October.

Remember, too, that Scherzer is struggling to get started in 2021. Prior to the Dodgers’ sale, Scherzer had an ERA of 2.76, but a FIP of 3.6 (the highest since 2010), indicating a striker who was very lucky in his time. and Nationals in 2021. A return to the East Coast may bring back that Scherzer in early 2021, who was beautiful, but not an ace we knew and loved all of 2010. Obviously, that’s all speculation and speculation anyway.
Outside of deGrom, Mets employees are packed with multiple question marks to see them as competitors in the NL East. Even with the healthy Scherzer, Carrasco, and Walker, it is not hard to argue that the Phillies (Wheeler, Nola, Suarez, Gibson) and Braves (Morton, Fried, Anderson, Ynoa) all have better sticks than New York.
While I have no doubt that deGrom will return stronger than before, the type of injury he endured (the reaction to stress in the throwing elbow) was seen earlier in pitchers like Brandon McCarthy and Michael Wacha. It was a chronic injury that forced the two of them to miss a critical time every few seasons. It may not affect performance, but it does affect availability, and in fact; the latter is very important for Mets if they really want to compete. I would not be surprised if deGrom needs to take a second extended trip to IL just after returning from his current injury due to a fire outbreak. We have seen it happen so many times.
