Jacob deGrom Recorded His 100th Strikeout For The Season!
The Scoreless innings stand at SD 2, NY 3. He managed to strike out ten. Last week, Jacob deGrom struck a total of 11 Padres out in 7 scoreless innings. However, everything didn’t turn out well for deGrom. According to the announcement of the Mets, deGrom exited the game of Friday following his eighty pitches with flexor tendinitis in his right arm. Last month, an issue in his right side made him miss sixteen days. This issue is however completely related to his arm. That too, the right one, which is a serious concern for the player and the team.
In 2010, when he was playing in the minor league, Jacob deGrom had a Tommy John operation. deGrom mentioned to the reporters that he has a pair of elbow issues earlier when he used to play so he is quite familiar with this kind of injury. He is not concerned that much. Following the game, Marly Rivera of ESPN and Anthony DiComo of MLB.com confirmed this news. Jacob also added that whenever people see an injury to an elbow, they get scared and nervous. But he is not worried so much about the injury himself. He hopes that it can be treated soon.
