Mets shut down Jacob deGrom for rest of season

By , Audacy Sports

While the New York Mets announced the return of Noah Syndergaard to the mound, ace Jacob deGrom will not be making another start as the 2021 season nears its end.

Manager Luis Rojas confirmed the decision as the Mets play out the final few games of the year in what was a very disappointing season after media and fan expectations had the Mets finishing in first place in the NL East.

Despite deGrom meeting all the criteria that was set for him to return to the mound in 2021, Rojas felt no need to get another start out of the two-time Cy Young Award winner.
