Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom has been suffering from a sore muscle in his right side. He was scheduled to throw a bullpen session at the team’s complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla. today and tried to, but it didn’t work out. Marc Carig of Newsday reports that he wasn’t physically good enough to throw a full bullpen today and added that “it doesn’t sound promising.”
The Mets may now be forced to place deGrom on the disabled list, as Terry Collins said yesterday that he’s loathe to play with the team shorthanded for much longer than he already has. Logan Verrett started Wednesday for deGrom, who was in Florida for the birth of his child. His next start is scheduled for Tuesday, but at the moment it doesn’t sound promising.
