New York Mets have an update on their starting pitcher Jacob deGrom after being hit by a Nick Williams line drive. He immediately left the game once he was hit by the Philadelphia Phillies player.
deGrom has been diagnosed with a right triceps contusion. In addition, the X-rays came back negative.
He was hit with a 99 mph line drive. Despite the heat coming off of the ball and the force in which it was hit, the Mets are lucky that he escaped without serious injury.
Prior to leaving the game with the injury, he blanked the Phillies over 6 2/3 innings. He allowed just four hits while he was on the mound.
He was scheduled to pitch again on Tuesday against the New York Yankees. However, with this news, the team may push back his next start.
The 29-year-old is 12-5 this season in 22 starts and one complete game. He has a 3.36 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP, along with a 170 strikeouts and 46 walks in 144 2/3 innings.
