Curtain risin’ on a new age
See deGrom’s still waitin’...
Jacob deGrom for rookie of the year?
Why not? It’s not like there is a runaway candidate this year.
So far, the monthly NL rookie of the month winners have been Arizona’s Chris Owings, St. Louis’ Kolten Wong and Cincinnati’s Billy Hamilton.
DeGrom limited the Seattle Mariners to one run on five hits in seven innings in a 3-1 win Tuesday. He improved to 4-5 with a 3.01 ERA.
Showing no ill effects from a nine-day layoff because of the All-Star break, deGrom now has a 1.59 ERA in six starts since June 21. He has not allowed a home run in his last 52 2/3 innings.
“He’s always flown under the radar. He still is,” Terry Collins said. “This guy has got numbers to match up with any rookie in the league, and you never hear his name mentioned.”
