SP - NYM - IL10
New York Mets ace Jacob deGrom (forearm) threw off a mound Sunday.
The Mets ace threw off the mound on Sunday for the first time In a week. He was placed on the 10-day injured list with right forearm tightness. deGrom will most likely have to throw a bullpen session and a simulated game before being activated from the IL. The right-hander remains day-to-day.
New York Mets RHP Jacob deGrom (forearm) is still receiving treatment and playing catch, according to manager Luis Rojas, but there's no timetable for him to throw a bullpen session.
The Mets ace has been on the injured list since July 20 and could need a rehab start before returning to the big league club considering how long he will have been out, per beat writer Anthony DiComo. The Mets will obviously take their time with their superstar hurler so fantasy managers will need to remain patient.
Mets RHP Jacob deGrom (forearm) could resume throwing soon.
The hope is that this is another short-term absence for the best pitcher in baseball. Manager Luis Rojas notes some of deGrom's forearm tightness has gotten better and that the range of motion has improved as well.
The Mets placed RHP Jacob deGrom (forearm) on the 10-day injured list.
deGrom recently began feeling some forearm tightness during a side session. It's apparently still an issue so the Mets are playing it safe and shutting him down for the time being. deGrom won't throw until the tightness goes away.
Jacob deGrom felt tightness in his forearm while throwing his side on Friday and will not make his scheduled start on Monday while he undergoes further evaluation. He is currently considered day-to-day.
This is not the news deGrom, the Mets, or fantasy managers want to hear. deGrom has dealt with some minor injuries this season but has thus far avoided a serious stint on the injured list. The fear with forearm tightness, of course, is that it is often a warning sign for a more serious injury. Monitor his status in the coming days for updates.
