MLB ROUNDUP Mets ace deGrom may not need MRI on el­bow

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Sports -

New York Mets ace Ja­cob deGrom played catch in the out­field of Busch Sta­dium in St. Louis and may not need an MRI on his el­bow af­ter all.

DeGrom said be­fore the game at St. Louis on Satur­day that his el­bow sore­ness likely was from al­ter­ing his rou­tine dur­ing a re­cent bout of strep throat.

“Af­ter get­ting some treat­ment and get­ting things mov­ing around, it started feel­ing a lit­tle bet­ter,” deGrom said. “So de­cided to throw and felt good with how it went.”

The Mets placed deGrom on the in­jured list Fri­day retroac­tive to April 16 be­cause of right el­bow sore­ness. The club had an­nounced that deGrom would be re­turn­ing to New York for an MRI of his el­bow.

Mets man­ager Mickey Call­away said they re­versed course be­cause he re­sponded well to treat­ment.
