The Mets have shut down Jacob deGrom for the remainder of the season, with manager Luis Rojas saying that there’s “no point” in letting him pitch over the final week.
DeGrom hasn’t thrown for the Mets — who’ve already been eliminated from playoff contention — since July 7 against the Milwaukee Brewers due to a low-grade UCL strain, though team president Sandy Alderson told reporters in early September that DeGrom’s ligament was “perfectly intact” and had “resolved itself.”
At the time of his injury, deGrom had compiled a 7-2 record with a 1.08 ERA in 15 starts.
The Mets got back one injured member of their rotation on Tuesday with Noah Syndergaard’s reinstatement from the injured list. Syndergaard is scheduled to start Game 2 of a doubleheader against the Miami Marlins — his first time pitching in an MLB game in nearly two years.
But the wait for DeGrom now extends into 2022.
