LEADING OFF: DeGrom returns from rest, Ynoa’s 2-way threat
Mets ace Jacob deGrom plans to return to the rubber after being scratched from his last scheduled start Tuesday with right lat inflammation. The two-time Cy Young Award winner played catch and threw a side session Friday and came out feeling well enough to proceed with his first outing since April 28. He’ll face the Diamondbacks and right-hander Riley Smith. DeGrom entered Saturday leading the NL with 59 strikeouts in 35 innings, against just four walks. Meanwhile, Atlanta pitcher Huascar Ynoa is doing his best Shohei Ohtani impression lately, delivering on the mound and at the plate.
