Mets’ Todd Frazier Apologizes to Jacob deGrom For Lack of Run Support Again

Published

on

New York Mets third baseman Todd Frazier is apologizing to starting pitcher Jacob deGrom for the lack of run support, yet again, that spoiled yet another stellar start for deGrom.

deGrom is now 4-2 with a league-best 1.55 ERA over 14 starts as the Mets fell 2-0 to the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday.

“I told [deGrom] after the game: ‘Dude, I am sorry.’ I don’t know what’s going on. I don’t know why we’re not producing for him” Frazier said after the loss, according to the New York Posts’ Mike Puma.

The Mets have scored two runs or fewer in nine of its last 11 games, and that’s a big reason as to why they have dropped 9 of their last 11 games.

The New York Mets will likely be big sellers at the deadline and it appears that they are shopping starter Noah Syndergaard.

According to Newsday’s Tim Healey, the Mets have discussed Syndergaard with around six teams, adding that there’s “minimal urgency” on the Mets’ part to trade Syndergaard.

Per the report, the Mets would need to be “wowed” in order to move Syndergaard.

Syndergaard, 26, isn’t having the kind of season he is accustomed to, pitching to the tune of a 4.68 ERA, and is posting other career-low numbers.
