Anthony DiComo of MLB.com tweeted earlier that the Mets are officially labeling deGROM’s injury as “forearm soreness”.
deGROM did have an MRI done & it shows no structural damage but there is inflamation in the forearm & the Mets definitely intend to skip at least his upcoming start. One thing I find extremely interesting about this whole situation is how Terry Collins’ says he didn’t have any idea of what went on between deGROM & Mets head trainer Ray Ramirez. It makes me wonder if Sandy Alderson requested for TC to talk about injuries as little as possible & let Sandy handle the media.
This is coming at a bad time as the Mets are chasing the Cardinals down for the 2nd Wild Card spot & while it seems like the Mets haven’t caught a break all season long, they’ve managed to keep themselves right in the mix of things. In the midst of all these injuries, September call ups couldn’t come soon enough.
