Exhale: Mets think Jacob deGrom can make next start

Exhale: Mets think Jacob deGrom can make next start

He is going to play catch tomorrow and possibly start on Monday.

Jacob deGrom is preparing to make his next scheduled start on Monday, despite an initial diagnosis of a hyperextended right elbow, the Mets announced before Thursday afternoon's game against the Braves at Citi Field. Of their 28 games thus far, 27 have been started by the combination of Noah Syndergaard, Jacob deGrom, Zack Wheeler, Matt Harvey and Steven Matz.

"There's nothing wrong with him", manager Mickey Callaway said Thursday.

The Mets said deGrom received an MRI Wednesday night and was examined Thursday morning at The Hospital for Special Surgery in NY.

It is believed he hurt himself following through on a swing, of all things.

After suffering the injury, deGrom wanted to continue, pitching smoothly through the heart of Atlanta's order in the fourth to extend his scoreless innings streak to 18 1/3. He threw only 46 pitches, 36 of them for strikes, before a bad swing in an at-bat against Braves lefty Sean Newcomb sent him into the tunnel and into an MRI machine as the Mets and their fans negotiated deals with the devil for only minimal damage.

"It felt good to hear that news", Callaway said.

The Mets eventually announced that deGrom had a hyperextended right elbow.

DeGrom has been stellar in seven starts this season, allowing just a 1.87 ERA and 0.992 WHIP and striking out 11.2 batters per nine innings.
