Mets’ deGrom gets clean MRI on shoulder, no plans for IL

NEW YORK (AP) — New York Mets ace Jacob deGrom’s shoulder showed no abnormalities, but the team wasn’t ready to commit to him taking his next turn in the rotation. DeGrom left his second straight start with an arm injury, coming out after three perfect innings against the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night with right shoulder soreness. He had an MRI on Thursday at the Hospital for Special Surgery that was reviewed by Mets medical director David Altchek and Los Angeles Dodgers head team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache. DeGrom is 6-2 with a 0.54 ERA and 111 strikeouts and eight walks in 67 innings.
