SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Jacob deGrom made his third rehab start, and first for the Triple-A Syracuse Mets, on Thursday night against the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp. DeGrom’s night started with a 1-2-3 first inning, striking out leadoff man Brian Miller on three pitches fastball before registering a pair of flyouts.

The two-time Cy Young winner allowed a leadoff double to Jerar Encarnacion in the second and followed it up with a walk to JJ Bleday, but he pitched around those blemishes thanks to a double-play ball and a strikeout of Charles LeBlanc.

Starting the game with mainly fastballs before mixing in more breaking pitches as the game went along, deGrom allowed a run in the third thanks to a single, an error, and a wild pitch, but he struck out Willians Astudillo to end the frame.

After a 1-2-3 fourth inning, deGrom’s night came to a close. Over 4.0 innings of work, deGrom allowed one unearned run on just two hits, striking out four and walking one with a wild pitch mixed in. He threw 42 pitches on the night, 29 for strikes.
