Ok, so who’s ready to party? No, no, we didn’t win shit but as of right now, MLB Insider Ken Rosenthal is reporting that it’s highly unlikely that deGrom would leave the Mets for the Atlanta Braves.
Yes, I’m absolutely celebrating this bit of news if it turns up to be true.
Being that deGrom is from the south in DeLand, Florida, many executives around the league believed that the Braves would be a landing spot that would be highly desired for the 34 year old veteran.
So now, if Atlanta is out of the deGrom race (which I highly doubt), look for the Texas Rangers to make a huge push for the 2-time Cy Young Award Winner.
