New York Mets fans will finally get to see Jacob deGrom take the mound on Tuesday.

However, the returning ace might not stick around beyond 2022.

The 34-year-old pitcher can opt out of the last two years of his contract after the 2022 season. Although a shoulder injury has sidelined him all year, deGrom hasn’t given up on his project to test the free market.
