The New York Mets' front office has dictated at least some pitching moves during games this season, according to multiple sources.

The New York Post first reported the story. A specific incident occurred on June 1 when Jacob deGrom was removed from a game while dealing with a hip cramp.

Front offices are usually involved in the planning of lineups and possible pitching matchups, but most managers have the autonomy to make moves through the course of each game.
