Why Jacob DeGrom Has a Realistic Shot at 2014 NL Rookie of the Year

As the 2014 season reaches the end of July, it's a good time to really start speculating who some of the award winners at the end of the season could be.

One award that Mets fans could look forward to is NL Rookie of the Year. The Mets have a rookie pitcher in Jacob deGrom who has been having a great start to what will hopefully be a long career.

Through 14 starts, deGrom is 5-5 with a 2.79 ERA, 31 walks and 83 strikeouts in 87.0 innings pitched. What makes deGrom's success even more impressive is that he was certainly not the Mets' most hyped pitching prospect in comparison to others like Noah Syndergaard and Rafael Montero.

Hopefully, deGrom will be able to keep up with the success he has had. But for now, let's see where deGrom ranks among other NL rookies this season.
