Mets right-hander and strong Rookie of the Year candidate Jacob deGrom is headed to the disabled list with what the team is calling rotator cuff tendinitis.

deGrom came out of nowhere this season to post a 2.87 ERA and 94/33 K/BB ratio in 100 innings as a 26-year-old rookie and hasn’t allowed more than three runs in a start since June 16. However, he complained of soreness after tossing a Quality Start against the Nationals on Thursday.

However, the good news–according to Marc Carig of New York Newsday–is that the Mets think deGrom will merely require some rest and rehab to recover.

    Holding my breath a little that it’s just a routing injury. Expecting that he won’t be pushed too much in September. And glad that Niese had a good day today.

      Niese still worries me. I know he’s the only lefty, but he’s the guy I would move before his shoulder turns him into John Maine 2.0.

    I don’t think there’s such a thing as “good news” when it comes to a shoulder injury for a pitcher.

    Here’s hoping deGrom is the exception, because he’s well on his way to being a great story this year, and could certainly be part of the RoY discussion if he can rebound quickly and finish the season.

      According to Will Carol aka @injuryexpert he says its not good but good that it was caught early

      I’m thinking they’ll take their time bringing him back even if he does seem fine quickly. They probably don’t want him to pitch too many innings this year anyway, so between that and playing it safe, why not wait a month?

    jesus, this sure has been a brutal year for pitchers.

    It looks like an up-the-middle of

    d’Arnaud
    deGrom
    den Dekker

    might never come to pass.

      They ordered lower case e’s and n’s for MdD, but still use an upside-down P for the d.
