Lopez confident in deGrom's ability in ML debut
5/15/2014 (Updated 11:03:34 PM)One night after Rafael Montero's big league debut, another former B-Met makes his big league debut on the mound at Citi Field against the Yankees. Jacob deGrom was called up to the big leagues as a replacement for Gonzalez Germen who was placed on the DL. A day later, deGrom found himself in the rotation when Dillon Gee landed on the disabled list.
For B-Mets manager Pedro Lopez, seeing two pitchers he coached less than one year ago make their big league debuts on consecutive nights is the reason for managing in the minor leagues. Lopez is confident that deGrom has the makeup of a pitcher destined for a prolonged career in the majors and hopes that his debut is a success.
