NEW YORK — Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom might miss his next turn in New York’s rotation because of a sore muscle in his right side.

DeGrom won the Mets’ home opener Friday, allowing one run and five hits over six innings during a 7-2 victory over Philadelphia.

“Still stiff, still sore today,” Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday.

DeGrom said his latissimus dorsi was tight and he came out as a precaution after 76 pitches. His regular throw day between starts would be Sunday.

“If he can’t do that, then there’s a good possibility we’ll have to find a spot starter for Wednesday,” Collins said.

DeGrom did not have an MRI, according to Collins. DeGrom also would leave the team and return to his home in Florida if his wife goes into labor.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
