The New York Yankees and New York Mets play the deciding game of their three-game, interleague Subway Series on Sunday. The Yankees need a victory to keep pace in the American League East with the first-place Boston Red Sox, who opened up a five-game lead with their victory over the Detroit Tigers earlier in the day, as MLB.com reports. But the featured attraction of the day will certainly be 30-year-old Mets righty ace Jacob deGrom, who according to numerous reports, could soon be pitching in pinstripes.
The Yankees-Mets game will live stream from Yankee Stadium in the Bronx on Sunday, and deGrom will have a national showcase for other teams who may be interested in dealing for the Major League ERA leader — the Chicago Cubs tops among them, according to ESPN.
But SB Nation baseball writer Brent Borzelli wrote recently that the Yankees could prove to be the best fit for deGrom, if indeed the faltering Mets decide to unload the righty in hopes of rebuilding their struggling team in a hurry.
“The Yankees are in a unique position to help the Mets in all areas of need, without diminishing their own team,” Borzelli wrote. “Would the Mets execute a deal with their crosstown rivals? They’d be foolish not to, especially if the Yankees make the best offer. Shunning the best package to avoid helping the Yankees would be like cutting off your nose to spite your face.”

First pitch is set for 8:05 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time or 5:05 p.m. Pacific Time on Sunday, July 20.
The five-year veteran, who was drafted in the ninth round by the Mets in 2010 out of Calvary Christian Academy in Ormond Beach, Florida, has faced the Yankees once this year. Jacob deGrom ended up on the losing side of a 4-1 decision despite hurling eight strong innings, giving up just four hits and striking out eight, as Baseball Reference records.
His 1.68 ERA leads the Majors, and his strikeout rate of 10.873 per nine innings ranks 10th overall, fourth in the National League, per Baseball Reference stats.
The Houston Astros have been pegged as another possible trading partner for the Mets in a deGrom deal, according to NJ.com. But deGrom says that he would be happy to stay with the Mets, saying, “I’ve enjoyed my time here.”
The Yankees on Sunday night will counter with their own righty, 29-year-old Masahiro Tanaka who brings a 7-2 record and 4.54 ERA with 83 strikeouts in 83 1/3 innings into the series-deciding matchup with the crosstown Mets.
