New York Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom is making plenty of noise at spring training, showcasing his nastiest stuff against Francisco Lindor.
After all the injury setbacks New York Mets hurler Jacob deGrom suffered in the 2021 campaign, fans are ready to see what he can get done in 2022. So far, deGrom is looking like his old self at spring training.
Just ask slugger Francisco Lindor about that. On Thursday, video emerged of the two stars facing off. Lindor was hoping he could get the best of deGrom, but the opposite was the case, with the righty making him look foolish at the dish.
Jacob deGrom has monster expectations for the 2022 season
That video above shows untouchable stuff from deGrom. Lindor couldn’t believe it himself, as his reaction was quite priceless. Lindor is probably thanking his lucky stars that deGrom is his teammate and he doesn’t have to face him during the regular season.
Last campaign, deGrom posted a 7-2 record and an insane 1.08 ERA in 15 starts. Unfortunately, he had to be shutdown for the season due to an elbow injury. Luckily, he didn’t need to have Tommy John Surgery, which was a major relief for the club.
Now, deGrom is ready to put together more impressive showings in 2022, and people all over Queens can’t wait to see him take the bump at Citi Field. If deGrom can stay healthy, it could turn out to be a memorable year for him and the Mets in Flushing.
This team enters the new season with high expectations, as fans are sick and tired of this team not living up to the hype. Things could change this spring and summer. As for deGrom, he’ll be ready to start the season with a bang from his first start.
