Mets Injury Update: Jacob deGrom, Jeremy Hefner


By on 8/11/2014 04:45:00 PM

It might seem like bad news that Jacob deGrom is going on the DL, but given the alternatives, the New York Mets are breathing a sigh of relief. The news is unfortunately not so good for Jeremy Hefner, who has reportedly re-injured his ulnar collateral ligament. Marc Carig of Newsday tweeted that deGrom was heading to the DL with rotator cuff tendinitis, with the rookie just prescribed rest and anti-inflammatories:

The team announced over the weekend that deGrom would head back to New York to have his sore shoulder examined. Call-up Rafael Montero should make Tuesday's start in deGrom's place. The 23-year old was a top 100 prospect coming in to the season but has struggled in four major league starts so far, with a 5.40 ERA and 1.60 WHIP.


Jeremy Hefner's comeback from Tommy John surgery looks to have been all in vain, with ESPN's Adam Rubin reporting that Hefner has both a fracture and another tear to his surgically repaired UCL. It's not yet clear whether Hefner will need to undergo a second surgery, but this clearly ends his season and may put his career in jeopardy, depending on the severity.
