Port St. Lucie .- The New York Mets star pitcher, Jacob deGrom, has a 9.00 ERA after his first game on the mound, but says he feels confident in improving his work.
The National League Cy Young Award winner threw an inning and left the mound after receiving a Tyler White single from a 97 mph fastball in a 1-10 fastball against the Houston Astros.
DeGrom, 30, allowed two hits and made 14 of his 17 pitches for the strike zone.
The right of the Mets had some obstacles a year ago that prevented him from getting the approval of the pilot Mickey Callaway.
The pitcher left the camp to be with his wife for the birth of his daughter and then faced rigidity in the arm after his return, further delaying his progress.
“This time everything is going well, I feel I am developing well because I have not stopped coaching, practically since October I started my practices, so now I feel ready for whatever comes,” said the pitcher. .), (EFE)
