Kershaw, deGrom clash as Dodgers host Mets

Jacob deGrom vs. Clayton Kershaw on Monday means there will be no easing into a series between one of the league’s hottest teams and the best team the National League has to offer.

A matchup between the visiting New York Mets and the Los Angeles Dodgers suddenly has major intrigue after the Mets’ front office elected to spare the job of manager Mickey Callaway one week ago.

Mets players have shown their appreciation by winning six of their last seven games.

Now deGrom (3-5, 3.72 ERA) will look to repeat his solid outing Wednesday against the Washington Nationals, when he gave up one run on two hits over six innings, with his eight strikeouts matching his most since April 14. However, the right-hander is 0-4 in eight career starts against the Dodgers, albeit with a 3.20 ERA.

“Hottest” in terms of performance, or in terms of status as matinee idols?
