“Big Jack” will be a big loss in this year’s All-Star Game.
Jacob deGrom is the two-time Major League Baseball champion and de facto best pitcher. He will not pitch in this year’s All-Star Game (or, more tragically, batting Ball), which annoys baseball fans everywhere.
deGrom will create a historic season in 2021: On the morning of July 8, he leads the Grand Slam in terms of ERA, ERA+, FIP, WHIP and K:BB ratio. (He also leads the league in FLUMP, FLIMP, CRUMP and SHUMP, but these figures are fabricated.)
The trump card of Zhou’s three major metropolitan teams explained his decision to miss the All-Star Game. This is what he said.
Why doesn’t Jacob DeGrom not pitch in the All-Star Game?
Despite being selected for the 2021 All-Star Game, the Mets ace and the front runner of NL Cy Young said he plans to spend the All-Star Game with his family and take a break in the second half of the season.
deGrom explained this decision on July 7th:
“I will spend time enjoying it with my family…hope Tai can enter and take my place”

DeGrom said on Wednesday: “I have considered it. Obviously, being selected for the All-Star team is a great honor, but I will spend time enjoying the game with my family, regardless of whether I participate in the game on Sunday or not.” And stay healthy in the second half. Hope Taijuan Walker will take my place.”
The starter is not sure if he will pitch in the last game before the All-Star weekend-Sunday. However, this will not affect his decision.
De Grom missed several starts in the first half due to serious injuries, including a shoulder injury that forced him to leave the starter, but he did not hit IL at any time.
The 33-year-old has been selected to the All-Star four times and won the Cy Young twice. If he maintains his current absurd pace, he will lock in third place at the end of the season. The Mets are currently at the top of the Middle NL East.
Walker will be a suitable replacement for DeGrom, although it is unclear whether this will happen: Walker was signed by the Mets at the end of the offseason, and he is New York’s second-best starter in 15 games. The self-reported score in the score reached 2.44.
