Jacob deGrom was under the weather on Monday night

Jacob deGrom endured the worst start of his amazing young career on Monday night against the Phillies, allowing a career-high seven runs in only 2 2/3 innings.

There may be at least a partial explanation for his struggles during this start.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports deGrom, “ate something that didn’t agree with him” leading up to this start against the Phillies.

Heyman says deGrom is feeling better on Tuesday.

DeGrom is 12-6 with a 2.29 ERA in 157 innings over 24 starts in 2015.


Title is misleading. How can he be under the weather from something that he ate?


On the contrary Gary. The term “under the weather” is an idiom which describes someone who is slightly unwell or in poor health. The title is anything but misleading.
