Mets rookie starting pitcher Jacob deGrom is going to be placed on the disabled list, Mets assistant GM John Ricco told reporters Monday (Marc Carig/Adam Rubin). His shoulder injury is rotator cuff tendinitis and prospect Rafael Montero will take his spot in the rotation for now.

DeGrom, 26, is in the midst of a very good season, worthy of NL Rookie of the Year consideration. He's 6-5 with a 2.87 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 94 strikeouts in 100 1/3 innings. He's 5-0 with a 1.55 ERA in his last six starts.

Montero, 23, has made four starts this season and posted a 5.40 ERA and 1.60 WHIP. In 15 starts for Triple-A Las Vegas, though, he's been very good, going 6-3 with a 3.28 ERA (in a ridiculously hitter-friendly ballpark and league) and 75 strikeouts in 74 innings.
