Mets' deGrom feels 'completely normal,' may not need MRI on elbow

Mets' deGrom feels 'completely normal,' may not need MRI on elbow

Callaway said after the game he hopes deGrom can come off the injured list next Friday, the first day he's eligible to do so, and start against the Milwaukee Brewers at Citi Field. DeGrom felt the discomfort in his throwing arm after playing catch during the team's off-day Thursday.

Instead of being in an MRI tube Saturday, as the Mets had initially planned, Jacob deGrom was in the outfield at Busch Stadium throwing from 120 feet.

Mets ace Jacob deGrom is returning to NY and will reportedly undergo an MRI on his right elbow after two straight shaky performances.

Mets manager Mickey Callaway disclosed that everybody is feeling optimistic about the situation.

The 30-year-old deGrom won the Cy Young last season with a 1.70 ERA in 32 starts.

Following two consecutive brilliant outings, which helped deGrom tie Bob Gibson's record with 26 consecutive quality starts, things have gone downhill.

"He's in a good frame of mind right now", Callaway said following the game Friday.

"I've had Tommy John before and done those tests, and everything feels fine with that", deGrom said. "I think after this stint, I'll be ready to go". In His Last Two Starts, It Has Been a DISASTER, Nine Runs on 13 Hits including the Fact he Gave Up Five Home Runs, Five Walks in Nine Innings.

DeGrom, the reigning National League Cy Young Award victor, was roughed up badly in each of his past two starts to see his ERA soar to 3.68.

Mikolas will look to rediscover the form that made him one of the biggest surprises in baseball last season, when he returned to the majors after three seasons in Japan and tied for the National League lead in wins with 18 while recording a 2.83 ERA over 200 2/3 innings. He signed a $137.5 million, five-year contract in March ahead of opening day.
