The Mets ace Jacob DeGrom is dealing with another health problem.
Due to a sore pitching shoulder, the right-hander left his starting position after playing three games against the Cubs on Wednesday night. DeGrom started the game five days after the last game was interrupted due to elbow tendinitis.
DeGrom retired all nine Cubs batsmen he faced, knocked out eight of them, and he often threw his fastball at 100 miles per hour. But after throwing the ball at Eric Sogard, he seemed to feel something in his arm.
The Metropolis broadcaster pointed out that he then spent more time between pitches. He went to the locker room after retiring from Chicago in the third quarter. Sean Reid-Foley was relieved in the fourth game.
Due to tendinitis, DeGrom left his starting position in Friday’s game against the Padres after six innings.DeGrom Tell reporters after the game He has experienced elbow problems in the past, and he is optimistic that he will not miss a turn because of tendinitis.
He missed three turns earlier in the season due to latissimus dorsi stimulation and lateral discomfort.
