This is not a surprise.
Jacob deGrom was selected to join the National League’s best as the lone Mets representative for the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, next Tuesday in Washington D.C.
deGrom has an NL-leading 1.79 ERA alongside his 5-4 record, 0.99 WHIP, and 142 strikeouts in 115 1/3 innings this season.
The real surprise today was the lack of Brandon Nimmo on either the reserves or the final vote. Of course, he could still make the team as a replacement player, but one would assume the guy that is currently second in OPS in the National League would at least make the final vote.
