Jacob deGrom injury update: Mets have 'no concern'

The Mets can exhale — at least for now.

A day after ace Jacob deGrom exited his start against the Cubs after just three innings with shoulder soreness, the Mets ace had an MRI read by two doctors, who said the results were “normal,” and “no concern,” according to manager Luis Rojas on Thursday.

DeGrom played catch, and will go through his routine ahead of his next start — though there are no promises he’ll take the bump for it.

“Right now we’re not thinking of an IL stint and we’ll see how he feels,” Rojas said. “We’re going to go day-by-day.”

In his first start returning from right flexor tendinitis, deGrom fanned eight Chicago batters over three innings on Wednesday, but left the dugout with a trainer.

“This is getting old,” deGrom said. “I want to be out there as long as I can be out there, I felt really good tonight early on.”

Despite the injury, the 32-year-old dropped his historically low ERA to 0.54 with the abbreviated start.
