Mets Injury Update: Jacob deGrom feels good after throwing

By on 8/17/2014 09:30:00 AM

Mets rookie pitcher Jacob deGrom felt good after playing catch on Saturday, reports Adam Rubin of ESPN. deGrom threw from 90 feet, and said he felt no pain at all. Recovering from rotator cuff tendinitis, the Mets believe that deGrom could return as soon as he is eligible to come off the DL, which is August 24th, vs the Dodgers, as Rubin writes:

The ideal scenario is for deGrom to return to the rotation next Saturday at Dodger Stadium, on the day he is eligible to be activated from the DL.
deGrom, who was called up in May, has pitched himself into NL ROY contention. He owns a record of 6-5, along with a 2.87 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.

Fellow rookie, Rafael Montero has taken deGrom's spot in the rotation. Montero hasn't matched the production of deGrom. He's 0-3 on the year with a 6.12 ERA.

If deGrom has a setback and Montero continues to get knocked around, the Mets may call on Daisuke Matsuzaka to enter the rotation, according to Roger Rubin.
