Mets’ deGrom for deRookie of deYear?

After Jacob deGrom wrapped up seven more sparkling innings in Tuesday’s 3-1 Mets win over the Mariners, manager Terry Collins noted that “this guy’s got numbers to match up any rookie in the league.”

Well, does he? Certainly after that performance, deGrom made a statement that his name belongs in the National League Rookie of the Year discussion. Thanks in large part to a weak NL field — Jose Abreu, George Springer, Dellin Betances and Jake Odorizzi all play in the American League — deGrom now leads all NL rookies with 1.3 fWAR and ranks third overall behind Billy Hamilton of the Reds and Chris Owings of the Diamondbacks. But those players both have significant flaws.

Hamilton (3.2 fWAR) derives the bulk of his value from baserunning and defense, which — and it’s a shame, but it’s true — are not always high on many voters’ lists of criteria. Hamilton’s on-base percentage sits at just .313. He is probably the NL ROY leader in the clubhouse right now, but he is hardly infallible.

Owings (1.9 fWAR) has not played since June 25, forcing him to the periphery of the discussion. Any argument Owings can make at this point, Hamilton can make a better one.

Other high-profile competitors lurk in the field, most notably Tommy La Stella (1.0 fWAR), Kolten Wong (0.9), Jesse Hahn (0.8) and Carlos Martinez (0.5), plus the Mets’ own Travis d’Arnaud and Jeurys Familia. But deGrom has outperformed them all to date, making this, right now, a two-horse race between him and Hamilton.
