Mets Jacob De Grom to Undergo MRI on Elbow

Friday is a night game, the next two are afternoon games. "We're not sure what it is". The team termed it as a "barking" in the elbow.

The 30-year-old deGrom, who had been scheduled to pitch Saturday, is coming off two shaky starts.

Van Wagenen said that de Grom has been sick and out of his normal routine this week while noting that he'll be placed on the injured list and evaluated by the team's medical staff in NY out of "an abundance of caution".

"So we're being overly cautious at this point". After a stellar start to the season, deGrom struggled a bit in his last two outings against the Atlanta Braves and Minnesota Twins.

The 14-8 loss to the Minnesota Twins on April 3 ended his Major League Baseball record-tying streak of 26 consecutive quality starts, with a quality start defined as pitching at least six innings while allowing three runs or fewer. DeGrom had Tommy John surgery in 2010.

I can assure you that wrapping it in aluminium foil and then concealing it inside a DVD player isn't the way to go about it.... The man's checked bag triggered an alarm in the security scanning equipment, authorities said.

He owns a better line since being promoted to Triple-A last season, though a 4.50 ERA and 1.48 WHIP don't jump off the page, either.

DeGrom and the Mets reached an agreement on a new five-year, $137.5 million contract before the season's start.

DeGrom originally had his start pushed back due to what the team said was strep throat.

"Jacob experienced some mild soreness in his throwing arm over the last 24 hours", the Mets said in a statement. "Even so, Jacob will be evaluated by our medical team in NY on Monday in the abundance of caution".

Van Wagenen said it was anticipated deGrom could return April 26 when the Mets start a series at home against Milwaukee.
