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.
