DeGrom (undisclosed) was removed from Wednesday's game against the Cubs after three innings with right shoulder soreness, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
Sean Reid-Foley entered the game in relief. DeGrom looked his usual, dominant self, requiring 51 pitches to strike out eight hitters in three perfect frames. He also added an RBI single. It's certainly concerning that he's dealing with an injury independent of the elbow issue that shortened his previous start. More details about deGrom's condition and when he will pitch again should become available after the game.
Mets manager Luis Rojas said deGrom (elbow) checked out fine after playing catch Sunday, putting the right-hander on track to make his next turn through the rotation Wednesday against the Cubs, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
DeGrom cruised through the first six innings during Friday's win over the Padres, but he was pulled after tossing just 80 pitches with what the Mets described as right flexor tendinitis. Though the fact that he's dealing with another elbow-related issue is less than ideal, deGrom seems to have at least temporarily cleared up concern about his health by feeling normal while playing catch two days after exiting his start. DeGrom looks like he'll return to the mound Wednesday without any major workload restrictions.
DeGrom (elbow) underwent an MRI which came back clean Saturday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
DeGrom dominated the Padres through six innings Friday but left after just 80 pitches due to flexor tendinitis in his right elbow. He played catch Saturday, which seemingly backs up his optimism that he'll make his next start, which lines up to happen Wednesday against the Cubs.
DeGrom (flexor tendonitis) is hopeful that he will make his next start, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
He has dealt with elbow issues before without missing much time, and he said his level of concern with this current injury is "not too high." DeGrom had been feeling it all week but felt great ahead of Friday's start against the Padres, and indeed he was nearly flawless over six shutout innings prior to exiting with the injury. Trainers apparently did several ligament tests on his elbow and everything checked out OK. If he doesn't end up missing any time, deGrom lines up to start Wednesday at home against the Cubs.
DeGrom left Friday's start against the Padres with right flexor tendonitis, which is a finger injury, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
He was nearly unhittable, giving up one hit, zero runs and zero walks while striking out 10 over six frames. DeGrom's pitch count was up to 80, so he probably would have logged one more inning at most even if he was fully healthy. He has come back quickly from injuries that have sounded more serious than this one, so he should be considered questionable for next week's start at home against the Cubs.
DeGrom (5-2) won Saturday's 4-0 game against the Padres, going seven innings and allowing no runs on three hits and a walk with 11 strikeouts.
DeGrom was customarily dominant in this one, cruising through the start aside from a bases-loaded jam in the fourth inning. In nine starts this season, DeGrom has allowed no runs in five starts while allowing a single run in the other four. He lowered his ERA to 0.62 with the sterling outing and lines up to face San Diego again at home next Saturday.
DeGrom (4-2) earned the win Monday against the Diamondbacks after tossing six scoreless innings, giving up two hits and fanning eight.
It was another dominant effort from the star hurler, who has yet to allow more than one earned run in any of his eight appearances this season. DeGrom also has six quality starts and a sterling 0.71 ERA that, if sustained across an entire season, would be a career-best mark by a wide margin. He will try to extend his blistering start to the season Saturday at the Padres.
DeGrom won't pitch as scheduled Monday against Atlanta since the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Mets owner Steven Cohen reports.
It's the second postponement of the series as Friday's contest was also called off due to weather. DeGrom will be pushed back to start Monday's series opener against Arizona, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
DeGrom did not factor into the decision during Tuesday's win after holding the Rockies to one run on three hits and no walks while striking out nine across five innings.
After missing two starts due to tightness in his right side, deGrom made a solid return to the rotation. His only damage of the night came via a solo homer by Ryan McMahon in the second inning. Per usual, deGrom found a way to miss bats, throwing 44 of 63 pitches for strikes, including 12 swinging strikes. It's worth noting that he struck out eight of 10 batters during his rehab assignment Thursday and seems to be returning to usual form, with his pitch count expected to stretch out in his coming starts. Now sporting a sparkling 0.80 ERA and 0.60 WHIP across seven appearances this year, the 32-year-old is slated for a Sunday matchup at home against Atlanta.
DeGrom (side) was officially activated from the injured list Tuesday ahead of his start against the Rockies, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
This comes as no surprise, as it was reported earlier in the week that the Mets' ace would take the ball Tuesday against Colorado. DeGrom is not expected to be on any sort of strict pitch count during his return, though New York will likely be cautious with its star right hander.
DeGrom (side) won't have an official pitch count when he gets activated from the injured list and returns to the rotation Tuesday, Laura Albanese of Newsday reports. "We want to see how the game goes," manager Luis Rojas said Monday. "He's going to tell us going through the game, going inning by inning. ... [The message is] go ahead and pitch and do what you do, and once we get a feel from different views, I think there's when a decision is going to be made."
It's reassuring for fantasy GMs who plan on plugging deGrom back into their lineups right away that he won't be held back too much, but it still wouldn't be a surprise if the Mets' ace comes out of the game a little earlier than he otherwise might after lasting only five innings in his last outing May 9. On the season, deGrom sports an otherworldly 0.68 ERA, 0.60 WHIP and 65:7 K:BB through 40 frames over six starts.
DeGrom (side) threw a bullpen session Sunday and is expected to rejoin the starting rotation Tuesday against the Rockies, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
The 32-year-old made a rehab start with Low-A St. Lucie on Thursday, and it appears he won't require another start in the minors before returning from the shelf. Things won't be official until deGrom is actually activated from the injured list, but he's on track to retake the mound Tuesday for the Mets.
DeGrom (side) is expected to pitch somewhere Tuesday, but whether that comes against the Rockies or in a rehab game remains to be seen, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
DeGrom was originally expected to miss just one turn in the rotation while dealing with side soreness, but he threw a rehab game Thursday rather than return to the big-league rotation. Previous reports indicated he'd return to the active roster Tuesday, but it looks as though the Mets have yet to make a decision about their ace's immediate future.
DeGrom (side) is expected to make his next start in the majors after completing a successful rehab start Thursday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
The 32-year-old threw 41 pitches over three scoreless frames in a rehab start with Low-A St. Lucie on Thursday, and he's now poised to rejoin the Mets' rotation for his next outing. If he remains on a five-day pitching schedule, deGrom will be activated from the injured list and take the mound Tuesday at home versus the Rockies
DeGrom (side) threw 41 pitches and struck out eight across three scoreless innings in a rehab outing with Low-A St. Lucie on Thursday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
DeGrom also reportedly hit 102 mph with his fastball. The outing was certainly a strong step toward his return from the injured list, though it's unclear whether the team will want him to complete another rehab outing prior to being activated.
DeGrom (side) played catch Wednesday and will make a rehab start for Low-A St. Lucie on Thursday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
DeGrom threw a bullpen session Tuesday, but the team wants to see him face hitters before he's cleared to return to the Mets' rotation. The right-hander has been progressing well in his recovery, and if all goes well in his rehab start, he should make his return from the 10-day injured list as soon as May 25 against the Rockies.
DeGrom (side) felt good following a bullpen session Tuesday, but the Mets wouldn't commit to activating him off the injured list when first eligible Friday against the Marlins, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
DeGrom has missed two of his last three turns in the rotation, though the Mets remain confident his side issue isn't a major problem, something an MRI confirmed last week. It's possible he's activated for Friday's start, but manager Luis Rojas mentioned other options such as another bullpen session or a rehab game. The team will likely provide an update Wednesday once it's clear how deGrom's side responded to Tuesday's session.
DeGrom (side) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
The 32-year-old was able to play catch Friday and will return to mound work Tuesday, one week after being placed on the injured list. DeGrom could return from the injured list Friday in Miami if all goes well during the bullpen session.
DeGrom (side) played catch Friday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
DeGrom was placed on the injured list Tuesday, meaning he's set to miss his second turn out of three in the rotation due to a side issue. An MRI revealed no injury or even inflammation, and the Mets appear optimistic that he'll return when first eligible next Friday. The fact that he's still able to throw reinforces that idea, though the Mets haven't officially set a date for his return.
DeGrom (side) showed no injury or inflammation in his MRI results, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
The righty ace went to the injured list merely as a precaution and, according to the Mets, to ensure his mechanics aren't negatively impacted by his pitching through the tightness. The encouraging MRI results reinforce that deGrom will likely stay on the IL for the minimum of 10 days and return May 21.
