DeGrom (elbow) will get another MRI in about 10 days, and if he is cleared to resume throwing at that time, he will need time to ramp back up before returning to the big-league rotation, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
This is a separate issue from the forearm tightness that originally led to him landing on the injured list on July 18. DeGrom said a bone spur has been ruled out and there isn't ligament damage, so the official injury designation is elbow inflammation. When asked Tuesday if he was concerned that he might miss the rest of the season, deGrom said, "I would say no, not right now." It sounds like he will need good results on the MRI around Aug. 13 in order to return by early September.
DeGrom (forearm) underwent an MRI on Friday that revealed right forearm inflammation, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
DeGrom will be shut down from throwing for two weeks before he's re-evaluated by the medical staff. While the right-hander had been throwing side sessions recently, the Mets are now targeting a return to game action sometime in September.
Mets manager Luis Rojas said deGrom (forearm) is scheduled to throw a light bullpen session Thursday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
DeGrom experienced no renewed pain with his right forearm while throwing off flat ground from 90 feet Wednesday, so he'll take another step forward in his recovery process by tossing a side session. The Mets will observe the workout before deciding whether deGrom will require another bullpen session or if he's ready to resume facing hitters in live batting practice. Assuming he can avoid any further setbacks, deGrom looks as though he could be on track to rejoin the New York rotation during the first week of August.
DeGrom (forearm) will throw another light side session Tuesday or Wednesday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
DeGrom threw off a mound Sunday and felt good after playing catch Monday. While Manager Luis Rojas said after Sunday's mound session that he didn't know the right-hander's next step in his recovery, he'll throw off a mound at least once more before the team makes a decision. The Mets reportedly intend to have deGrom make a minor-league rehab start before he's activated from the IL, so he could be sidelined until sometime in early August.
Mets manager Luis Rojas said deGrom (forearm) "felt good" while throwing off a mound Sunday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. "Everything is progressing well as of now," Rojas said of deGrom's recovery from right forearm tightness. "What is the next step? I don't know at this point."
DeGrom stepped back on the mound Sunday for the first time since being diagnosed with the injury July 17, and though the workout went according to plan, the team isn't yet willing to commit to a rehab schedule for the right-hander. According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, the Mets do intend to have deGrom make a minor-league rehab start prior to being activated from the injured list, which means the National League MVP candidate wouldn't be on track to rejoin the big club until early August at the soonest, given where he currently stands in his recovery program. Fantasy managers can probably feel confident that they won't miss out on a deGrom start by keeping him inactive for the Mets' upcoming eight-game week.
DeGrom (forearm) threw off a mound Sunday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
The Mets haven't disclosed whether deGrom completed a true bullpen session, but even light throwing off the mound would mark the first time that he's toed the rubber since being shut down more than a week ago with right forearm tightness. Before making his return from the injured list, deGrom will likely need to complete at least one more bullpen session and face hitters in a live batting practice session or simulated game. He could return to make a start in next weekend's series versus the Reds in a best-case scenario, but it's more likely deGrom's absence stretches into August.
Manager Luis Rojas said Saturday it's unclear when deGrom (forearm) will begin throwing bullpens, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
The righty has been playing catch and receiving treatment for his sore forearm, but he doesn't appear particularly close to continuing his throwing progression. Additional information about deGrom and when he might return from the injured list should become available in the next week or so. At this rate, his absence may be long enough that a rehab assignment could be necessary.
DeGrom (forearm) played catch again Friday but has yet to advance to mound work, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
DeGrom has battled multiple nagging injuries throughout the year, though you wouldn't know it when looking at his 1.08 ERA and 0.55 WHIP through 15 starts. He's in the middle of his longest absence thus far, and while the fact that he's yet to throw off a mound means his return to game action isn't imminent, it's certainly a positive that he continues to be able to throw in some capacity.
DeGrom (forearm) threw off flat ground at Citi Field on Thursday, SNY reports.
DeGrom has been on the injured list since Sunday due to right forearm tightness, but he's been improving recently while shut down from throwing. The Mets were insistent that the right-hander wouldn't resume throwing until his forearm tightness had completely dissipated, so it appears as though he's in a good place in his recovery. A better idea of deGrom's return timetable could come into focus once he's able to ramp up his intensity.
DeGrom (forearm) is improving but has yet to resume throwing, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
DeGrom has battled nagging injuries throughout the year but previously hadn't gone more than 15 days between starts. He'll surpass that mark Friday, and it remains unclear exactly when the Mets expect him to pitch again. He's currently back in New York continuing to receive treatment.
The Mets placed deGrom (forearm) on the 10-day injured list Sunday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
The ace will not resume throwing until his right forearm tightness has completely dissipated. How long that will take is unclear at this time, but deGrom has dealt with enough minor arm injuries in 2021 that the Mets are likely to be especially cautious with timing his return. No corresponding transaction has been announced yet, but it figures to be a pitcher replacing deGrom on the active roster.
DeGrom is getting treatment for forearm tightness, but an MRI administered Saturday didn't reveal any structural damage, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.
His side session was halted Friday due to the injury and he is currently in a no-throw period. Given the results of the MRI, the team is treating him for forearm tightness, and while deGrom is being labeled as day-to-day, he'll miss his scheduled start Monday in Cincinnati. He has been a quick healer in the past, but he also dealt with elbow and shoulder issues in June, so perhaps everything is starting to take its toll.
As expected, deGrom will not pitch Sunday against the Pirates, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
DeGrom started the first game of the Mets' doubleheader Wednesday against Milwaukee, so it was expected that he would not appear again before the All-Star break. He's been excellent throughout the entire first half of the season, maintaining a 1.08 ERA and 0.54 WHIP with 146 strikeouts across 92 innings.
DeGrom allowed two runs on four hits and struck out 10 in seven innings, taking a no-decision in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader versus Milwaukee.
The right-hander was effective Wednesday despite allowing multiple home runs for the first time in 15 starts this season. DeGrom gave up solo shots to Luis Urias and Jace Peterson, and that would have saddled him with the loss were it not for Jose Peraza's game-tying homer in the bottom of the seventh. This was the third start in a row deGrom has allowed multiple runs, but he still has an outstanding 1.08 ERA, 0.54 WHIP and 146:11 K:BB across 92 innings. His next start is expected to come after the All-Star break.
DeGrom won't start as scheduled Tuesday against the Brewers since the game was postponed due to rain, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
New York attempted to wait out the rain and get the game in Tuesday, but the contest was called off more than two hours after the scheduled start time. The game will be made up via a doubleheader Wednesday, and deGrom will start Game 1 of the twin bill, per DiComo. As a result of the postponement, it should be his final start before the All-Star break.
DeGrom allowed three earned runs on five hits while striking out 14 across seven innings in the loss to Atlanta on Thursday. He did not factor into the decision.
DeGrom allowed his first home run in his last seven starts in the first inning to Austin Riley. All three of his runs allowed were in the first inning. DeGrom has struck out at least 14 in four games this season. Despite allowing three earned runs for the first time this season, the future Hall of Famer is leading all of baseball with a 0.95 ERA and a 14.40 K/9. His next start is scheduled for Tuesday against the Brewers.
DeGrom didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Phillies, giving up two runs on three hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out five.
The right-hander hadn't been tagged for a run since May 25, but deGrom saw his scoreless streak end at 31 innings on an RBI single by Nick Maton in the second frame. In fact, this was the first time in 2021 he's allowed more than one earned run in an outing. The Mets ace still delivered his ninth quality start of the season, and he sports a 0.69 ERA and absurd 122:11 K:BB through 78 innings on the year.
DeGrom (7-2) picked up the win in Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against Atlanta, striking out six while allowing one hit and two walks across five scoreless innings.
Prior to Sunday, it wasn't even known if deGrom would be able to start Monday after he exited his outing last Wednesday with shoulder soreness. The ace right-hander was indeed able to toe the rubber for the first half of the twin bill and was magnificent once again. He was limited to just 70 pitches (44 strikes), but he said the short outing was simply because the club "didn't want to overdo it" after last week's scare, per Tim Britton of The Athletic. DeGrom has remarkably not allowed a run in his last five starts, over which he's punched out 43 while allowing a total of seven hits and three walks. He'll look to stay on a roll when he takes the ball this weekend against the Phillies, where he should have the leeway to pitch deeper into the ballgame.
The Mets confirmed that deGrom (shoulder) will start the first game of Monday's doubleheader with Atlanta, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
Though deGrom relayed after playing catch Sunday that he would be ready to go on regular rest for the first game of the series with Atlanta, the Mets weren't willing to confirm his availability until re-evaluating him earlier Monday. With deGrom's right shoulder checking out fine, he's not expected to face any major restrictions in his 12th start of the season. Though deGrom's last two outings have been cut short due to injuries, he was somehow even more dominant than usual in both starts, covering nine innings between them and striking out 18 while allowing no runs on one hit and no walks. Assuming he's able to make it through Monday's start unscathed, deGrom will line up for his second start of the week Saturday or Sunday at home versus the Phillies.
DeGrom (shoulder) confirmed after playing catch Sunday that he'll be ready to start one game of Monday's doubleheader with the Nationals, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Despite exiting his second straight start early due to an injury, deGrom's sore right shoulder checked out fine following a full bullpen session Saturday and a round of catch Sunday. The 33-year-old's durability is starting to become more of a concern, but he's left little doubt that he's the game's best pitcher when he's healthy enough to pitch. He'll carry an incredible 0.54 ERA and 0.51 WHIP into his 12th start of the season Monday.
