Mets fans understandably must have been worried as Jacob deGrom headed down the dugout steps Friday.
deGrom departed New York’s game against the San Diego Padres after six innings. The Mets, according to reports, explained the exit was due to right flexor tendinitis.
The superstar right-hander allowed just one hit while striking out 10 Padres batters through six innings. Miguel Castro took over for deGrom in the seventh of New York’s eventual 3-2 victory.
deGrom entered Friday’s contest with a 0.62 ERA before earning his sixth win of the season Friday.
