Mets ace Jacob deGrom will be team's lone representative at All-Star Game

Because of the Mets’ ineptitude, deGrom has just a 5-4 record so far but he leads the majors with a 1.79 ERA and has 142 strikeouts in 115.1 innings. The Nationals’ Max Scherzer, the reigning two-time NL Cy Young winner, is the likely candidate to start with the game being in his home ballpark, but deGrom would appreciate the assignment if given to him.
