Mets ace deGrom set to have MRI

Mets ace deGrom set to have MRI”

DeGrom said before the game at St. Louis on Saturday that his elbow soreness likely was from altering his routine during a recent bout of strep throat.

The Mets placed deGrom on the injured list Friday retroactive to April 16 because of right elbow soreness.

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.

"It goes back to the throwing thing I feel better when I throw", deGrom said when asked why he isn't shutting it down until Monday, according to Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports.

Just when everything seemed to finally be going right for the New York Mets as of late, the team and fan base is now left holding its collective breath regarding the health of Cy Young victor Jacob deGrom.

DeGrom has not looked like himself in his last two starts, allowing five home runs across both outings. DeGrom signed a $137.5 million, five-year contract in March, right before opening day. "I think the move we made was (done so for) no other (reason) than the earliest he'd be able to pitch is probably Wednesday, and then we have (an) off day, so we figured it'd end up being Friday".

"Much improved", Callaway said.

"It was just a little sore", deGrom said, per ESPN. We had that discussion - maybe we should just wait until we see the doctor?

DeGrom posted a spectacular 1.70 ERA and struck out 269 in 32 starts last season while winning the Cy Young Award despite having a 10-9 record.

Mikolas made his lone appearance against the Mets in 2012, when, as a member of the San Diego Padres, he tossed a scoreless inning of relief. But he lost his past two starts while allowing a total of nine runs on 13 hits - including five homers - and five walks in nine innings.

The 24-year-old California native has never faced the Cardinals.
