Jacob deGrom reaches significant 200-inning plateau for first time in career

Jacob deGrom has been the last ace standing for the Mets for most of this season, pitching more innings than Noah Syndergaard, Matt Harvey and Steven Matz have thrown combined.

Coming off of season-ending elbow one year ago, it is of no small significance that deGrom reached the 200-inning plateau for the first time in his major-league career on Sunday. DeGrom tossed another six strong frames, despite suffering the defeat to Washington ace Max Scherzer in a 3-2 loss to the Nationals.

“It’s definitely big for me,” deGrom said of his innings total. “We’ve got plans to hopefully go to the World Series next year, and I think that’s something I wanted to get to, to know what it’s like to pitch that many innings in a year.

“You never know what to expect coming off of surgery, so being healthy this year definitely has been a big plus for me.”

DeGrom gave up a two-run homer to Trea Turner in the third inning and an unearned run in the fifth, but he finished the game with 11 strikeouts, his 11th double-digit outing of the season.

As has been the case since he came up in 2014, deGrom has been quietly awesome this year.

In 2015, he pitched 191 innings in regular season, plus another 25 in playoffs.

Hmph! Back in my day, we pitched 200 innings in every game, every practice, every warm-up, all season, all autumn, all winter long! And we had solid concrete blocks tied to our arms, and razor blades in our shoes, and a midget punching us in the nuts! And if we let down for even a moment, the coach would whup us with a cat-o'-nine-tails and ship us to Omaha! Then the Omaha coach would whup us and sent us to a smaller town, and again and again, until we were naked and playing in Antarctica! And the midget would still be punching us in the nuts! And we liked it...!

Coming off of season-ending elbow one year ago,

I've had quite a few benders, but never an elbow. I wouldn't mind getting me some full elbow sometime, must be epic to end an entire season.

And 239 strikeouts. Not bad.

I don't think I've ever seen this before--in his 4 minor league seasons, he averaged 7.4 K's/9--in 4 MLB seasons, he's at 9.7

He was a late-comer to pitching, but still. He was immediately better in the majors than he had ever been in the minors.
