Mets RHP Jacob deGrom, who left Wednesday night's start after the fourth inning due to a hyperextended right elbow, is expected to make his next start, manager Mickey Callaway said on Thursday.
"Nothing wrong with him," Callaway said about the MRI deGrom received Wednesday night. "He's gonna resume playing catch tomorrow and try to make his start on Monday. We're gonna hone in and make sure everything is 100 percent."
In addition to receiving the MRI, deGrom was examined Thursday morning at the Hospital for Special Surgery.
"We're preparing him for his next start," Callaway concluded. "His MRI looked good. ... all is good."
DeGrom said he feels "pretty good" and that he plans to play catch on Friday and throw a bullpen session on Saturday. Regarding his next start, he said "I think I'll be fine."
He added that he probably could have pitched through the issue on Wednesday night, but that it didn't feel good so he wanted to "err on the side of precaution."
