The New York Mets were unable to pull out a win in their season opener on Monday, giving Jacob deGrom another wasted effort. Following New York’s disappointing loss to the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday, multiple people pointed out just how unlucky DeGrom has been in his career.

The Mets ace has proven to be one of the best pitchers in MLB, but his team continues to let him down in his starts. During Monday’s outing, DeGrom pitched six innings, allowing zero runs while striking out seven Phillies batters.

With the Mets losing in his first start of the season, deGrom has now had 53 starts where he pitched six-plus innings, allowed two runs or fewer, and didn’t get a win, which is the most in MLB since his rookie campaign in 2014.

Also, New York’s bullpen has now blown 31 leads in games that deGrom starts in, showing that he’s being let down by the relievers that pitch after him.

It’s only the first game of the season for the Mets, so it’s tough to assume that it will be more of the same when it comes to the bullpen struggling to hold a lead that deGrom secured. Nevertheless, with Jacob deGrom having an option to opt out of his contract after the 2022 season, New York hopes the inability to aid deGrom doesn’t come back to bite them.
