Jacob deGrom shoulder injury update

The Mets received a positive report on Jacob deGrom’s shoulder from their medical staff, a source told MLB.com on Thursday. The club has yet to reveal an official diagnosis and was sending deGrom for a second opinion. But the initial outlook was good.

deGrom started on Wednesday night in the Mets’ 6-3 victory over the Cubs, but he exited after just three innings and 51 pitches with a sore right shoulder. Before leaving, he struck out eight of the nine batters he faced, lowering his ERA to 0.54.
