#ManCandyMonday Mets Pitcher Jacob de Grom

Last year the Mets found themselves with a dilemma: three players with little d’s in their name. Travis d’Arnaud. Matt den Dekker (now with the Nationals). Jacob de Grom. Since there were no lower case letters in baseball, the Mets had to use updside down Ps. LOL. This year they added the lower case d.

Today’s cutie, Jacob is a pitcher for the Mets. He got off to a rocky start, but has bounced back with some solid outings. He’s currently 7-4 with yesterday’s win over the Diamondbacks. Jacob is a lean mean 6’4″ phenom who won the NL Rookie of the Year last year.
