Jacob deGrom has not only been dominant in 2021 but he is having what is arguably the most dominant season by a pitcher in Major League Baseball history.
In 15 starts this season, deGrom is 7-2 with a league-best 1.08 ERA and a league-best 0.554 WHIP. He has also struck out a league-best 14.3 batters per nine innings and a league-best 1.1 walks per nine innings.
But, according to New York Mets manager Luis Rojas, deGrom is heading to the IL with forearm tightness.

We certainly wish deGrom a speedy recovery because he sure has been a lot of fun to watch!
