  • Rangers' Jacob deGrom: Set to start opener for Rangers

    DeGrom has been named the Rangers' Opening Day starter March 30 against the Phillies, Kennedi Landry of reports.

    The veteran righty isn't going to be fully stretched out after dealing with a side issue for much of this spring, and deGrom will be limited to around 75-80 pitches against Philadelphia. He's made just one official Cactus League start but should be in line for one more tune-up Saturday.

  • Rangers' Jacob deGrom: Makes spring debut

    DeGrom allowed two hits and struck out four over three scoreless innings in Sunday's spring start against the Mariners.

    DeGrom made his Cactus League debut after being brought along slowly from a side injury. The right-hander looked sharp his first time out, hitting 100 mph twice in three innings while the fastball consistently clocked in at 97-99 mph, per Kennedi Landry of DeGrom worked around a first-inning triple, getting a couple of punch-outs, then left a runner stranded in the third following a leadoff single. He threw 34 pitches (28 strikes) during an efficient outing then tossed more pitches in the bullpen to get his work in. There's time for at least one more Cactus League outing, and deGrom is expected to be on a restricted pitch count to start the regular season.

  • Rangers' Jacob deGrom: Set for Cactus League debut Sunday

    DeGrom (side) will make his Cactus League debut Sunday against the Mariners, Kennedi Landry of reports.

    DeGrom looked good in a start against minor leaguers earlier this week, striking out five while allowing one run over two innings. He figures to be ready for three innings Sunday as he ramps up for the start of the regular season. Manager Bruce Bochy has said that deGrom will likely be on a 75-80 pitch count at the beginning of the regular season after missing so much time this spring with side tightness.

  • Rangers' Jacob deGrom: Likely on pitch count early

    Manager Bruce Bochy indicated Wednesday that deGrom (side) is likely to be on a pitch count to start the season, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

    Bocy said both deGrom and Nathan Eovaldi (side) may be restricted to 75-to-80 pitches to begin the season while coming off their respective injuries. That means guys like Dane Dunning, Glenn Otto or Cole Ragans could be paired with the starters. DeGrom recently threw two innings in a minor-league game and is ramping up for the regular season.

  • Rangers' Jacob deGrom: Looks sharp in minor-league start

    DeGrom (side) struck out five and allowed one run over two innings during his start in a minor-league spring game Monday and said afterward that he believes he'll be available to start the Rangers' regular-season opener March 30 versus the Phillies, Jesse Rogers of reports. "That's up to [the Rangers' coaching staff]" deGrom said after Monday's start. "I'm here to help us win. If it falls that I'm on Opening Day, that's a huge honor."

    DeGrom's spring debut was delayed after he had his throwing program slowed down early in spring training when he experienced left side tightness, but he looked to be healthy and as dialed in as ever Monday while using all four of his pitches in the outing. The lone run he allowed came on a fluky inside-the-park home run, and deGrom was able to rebound swiftly thereafter and closed the start on a high note, coming away especially pleased with how he threw his changeup and curveball. DeGrom went on to throw an additional 26 pitches in the bullpen following the two-inning appearance, so he looks like he'll be on pace to handle something resembling a normal workload by the time the regular season begins even if he only makes one or two more starts in spring training.

  • Rangers' Jacob deGrom: Starting minor-league game

    DeGrom (side) will start a minor-league spring training game on the back fields Monday, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

    The veteran right-hander won't start Monday's Cactus League contest as previously rumored, but he'll still see game action. He's working his way back from left side tightness and sat around 98-99 mph during a 35-pitch session of live batting practice last week. Assuming all goes well Monday, deGrom could gain full clearance shortly thereafter, though it's possible he'll still begin the campaign with a limited workload.

  • Rangers' Jacob deGrom: Could pitch in Cactus game Monday

    DeGrom (side) could make his Cactus League debut as soon as Monday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Working his way back from left side tightness, deGrom sat at 98-99 mph during a 35-pitch live batting practice session Wednesday. As long as he rebounds from that throwing session with no issues, he should be cleared to return to game action. The two-time Cy Young winner remains on track for the start of the season, although it's probably not reasonable to expect a normal workload right out of the gate.

  • Rangers' Jacob deGrom: Facing live hitters Wednesday

    Rangers manager Bruce Bochy said DeGrom (side) will throw a live batting practice session Wednesday, Levi Weaver of The Athleticreports.

    The right-hander is expected to toss around 30 pitches in the session and remains "on schedule" for the start of the regular season, despite having not pitched in a Cactus League game yet. Though all updates offered by Bochy and deGrom have suggested that the side injury that first cropped up in late February isn't a concern, it's understandable if fantasy managers are skeptical after the two-time Cy Young Award winner's injury-plagued 2021 and 2022 campaigns. Those who haven't drafted yet will want to keep a close eye on reports regarding deGrom after Wednesday's live session. If he sticks to a normal schedule of four days off before facing hitters again, deGrom could make his spring debut as soon as next Monday versus the Diamondbacks.
