Jacob deGrom is dealing with another health issue. One of the Mets was diagnosed with flexor tendinitis in his arm on Friday night from the start Padres vs.
DeGrom missed three starts in May with lat inflammation and discomfort on his right side. Now, he is studying free time because of an arm problem.
The 32-year-old deGrom was special when he was able to take the ball. The ERA dropped to 0.56 with six unscored innings against San Diego. His 10 hits gave him 103 in 64 innings.
But it was only removed after 80 pitches, and TV cameras showed him talking to a team coach. This got the seriousness of the Mets fans.

DeGrom has been at IL twice for elbow problems in his MLB career, in 2018 and 2019. In both seasons he won the National League Cy Young Award.
However, the Mets are likely to be cautious again with the staff anchor. The team put him on the injured list in mid-May due to his discomfort on his right side. Friday’s start was the fourth since it was reactivated on May 25th. They were torn from the beginning of May 4 due to irritation of the lat muscles.
