DeGrom: Doesn't 'make sense' for me to pitch in ASG
Baseball's best pitcher may not make an appearance in the All-Star Game.
"I'm supposed to throw Sunday. For me, I don't think it's smart to go pitch in the All-Star Game," he said. "I've been a little beat up this first half and obviously missed a few starts that I wish I wouldn't have missed, so I don't think it makes sense for me to throw in it."
The Mets ace leads MLB in ERA (0.95), FIP (0.99), strikeouts per nine innings (14.4), and fWAR (4.8). However, he's battled a multitude of injuries throughout the 2021 campaign, including side, elbow, and shoulder issues.
