Some good news for Mets starter Jacob deGrom and his family.
deGrom’s son Jaxon was born last Monday, but had been in the hospital due to undisclosed complications. Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that he was discharged from the hospital yesterday, however, and is now at home. Fabulous news, obviously.
As far as pitching goes, the lat tightness deGrom had been experiencing seems to have passed, Rubin notes, and that the Mets plan to put him on a throwing program to get him back up to stamina following his layoff. He’ll either be back in the rotation this coming weekend of the following week.
