SP - NYM - IL10
Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom is working his way back from his injury and will begin with a bullpen session on Tuesday. He's eligible to come off the IL this upcoming Thursday.
deGrom's return is obviously a welcome one for fantasy owners, as he hopes to build upon yet another Cy Young campaign. deGrom currently has a 0.68 ERA with 65 strikeouts over 40 innings pitched.
The Mets plan to place ace Jacob deGrom (side) on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with right side tightness.
The Mets plan to place deGrom on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, retroactive to May 10th. deGrom underwent an MRI on Sunday, which was “clean of any issues.” He doesn't have any structural damage but was placed on the 10-day injured list with right side tightness. deGrom exited Sunday’s win early after just 68 pitches. The Mets are being cautious with their ace and he will miss at least the next ten days.
Jacob deGrom allowed one run on one hit, three walks with six strikeouts in five innings.
deGrom was perfect through four before running into trouble in the fifth. It turns out that his lat injury was bothering him, and that's why he struggled in the fifth inning. deGrom's velocity was down in this one; he threw only two pitches 100+ MPH (out of 68), got 10 swings and misses, and allowed two hard-hit balls. Stay tuned for updates on his injury. The Mets have him listed as Sunday's starter right now.
MLB Network's Jon Morosi reports the Mets are optimistic that ace right-hander Jacob deGrom (side) will avoid the IL.
The initial prognosis is "good" after deGrom underwent an MRI. He exited Sunday's start against Arizona due to side tightness, but it sounds as if he avoided a long-term issue. Fantasy managers can tentatively breathe a sigh of relief.
Mets manager Luis Rojas provided an update on Jacob deGrom and noted he will undergo an MRI on the right side of his lower back.
deGrom left Sunday's start after 68 pitches. He allowed one earned run, one hit, and three walks with six strikeouts in five innings. Hopefully, it isn't serious for arguably the best starting pitcher in baseball.
