The New York Mets have had a great start to the 2022 season. Through 99 games, the Metropolitans sit at 62-37 and hold a 3.0-game lead over the Atlanta Braves in the NL East. They did this without Jacob deGrom, the game's best pitcher when healthy.

The good news is deGrom is reportedly expected to make his season debut on Tuesday against the Washington Nationals. deGrom has been rehabbing a stress reaction in his right scapula.

Jacob deGrom Injury Update

With deGrom back in the fold, if he stays healthy, pairing him with Max Scherzer will give the Mets the best 1-2 punch in baseball at the top of their rotation. Staying healthy has been a major concern for deGrom the past few seasons. He last pitched in an MLB game on July 7, 2021.

The Mets are currently fourth in the MLB in odds to win the 2022 World Series at +750, according to the latest odds from FanDuel Sportsbook. If deGrom returns to his normal self right away, those odds should only increase over the last couple of months of the season.
