By on 8/10/2014 01:15:00 PM

Mets rookie right-hander Jacob deGrom has left the team and is going back to New York with a sore shoulder, tweets Mike Puma of the New York Post. DeGrom, a strong candidate for NL Rookie of the Year, is 6-5 in 16 starts with a 2.87 ERA (124 ERA+) and 94 strikeouts in 100 innings.

DeGrom will miss his next start.
That would be Rafael Montero and Noah Syndergaard.

DeGrom's last outing was Thursday (August 7) against the Washington Nationals, He threw 97 pitches in six innings, allowing three earned runs, one homer, one walk, and striking out four. He made four starts in Triple-A Las Vegas (4-0, ERA 2.58, 38 innings) before his promotion on May 15.

Now 26, deGrom was drafted by the Mets in 2010 (9th round) and made his debut May 15, 2014. He is pre-arb and under team control through 2019.
