deGrom wins award; won't be skipped soon

NEW YORK -- Jacob deGrom has been named NL Co-Player of the Week, sharing the honor with Miami Marlins closer Steve Cishek. And given the rookie's recent success, Sandy Alderson said the Mets have no plans to slow him down right now, even with an approaching innings cap. In road starts last week at Seattle and Milwaukee, deGrom allowed one run in 13 1/3 innings. He became the first Mets rookie pitcher to win the NL Player of the Week Award since Octavio Dotel in 1999.
