MLB ROUNDUP Mets ace deGrom may not need MRI on elbow
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.
