Mets’ Jacob deGrom to be shut down for four weeks with shoulder injury

The New York Mets received some bad news on Friday.

Jacob deGrom’s MRI revealed a stress reaction on his scapula that has caused inflammation in the area, the team announced.

“Jake underwent an MRI today that revealed a stress reaction on his scapula that has caused inflammation in the area,” the Mets said in a statement. “The immediate prescription is for Jake to discontinue throwing for up to four weeks and then reimage the area. At that time, we’ll update the plan of care.”


The right-hander reportedly felt tightness in his right shoulder while playing catch on Thursday.

This is obviously a big blow as he is the ace of the Mets pitching staff.

The 33-year-old missed the second half of last season with an elbow injury.
