Jacob deGrom talked to SNY this week about his goals for the season. No surprises here, he’s shooting to win the Cy Young Award and World Series. He correctly points out that the health of the pitchers, collectively, is the most important factor in the Mets success this year.
deGrom is going into his 30 year old season in 2018 with just over 3 years of MLB service time. He’ll earn $7.4 million this year and be eligible for arbitration in 2019 and free agency in 2021.
