DeGrom tosses, Mets expect ace to make next scheduled start

NEW YORK (AP) — Two-time National League Cy Young Award winner Jacob deGrom is expected to make his next scheduled start for the New York Mets despite having to leave his most recent outing with an elbow ailment. DeGrom played catch and threw a bullpen session Saturday afternoon, a day after he exited with right flexor tendinitis. Manager Luis Rojas says his ace should be ready to face the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday. A precautionary MRI showed no problem, Rojas said.  DeGrom’s 0.56 ERA is the lowest ever by a pitcher through 10 starts, just ahead of Juan Marichal’s 0.59 in 1966.
