The New York Mets reportedly got good news on ace Jacob deGrom on Wednesday.
According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, deGrom is considered day-to-day with a back issue after an MRI showed nothing concerning.
Heard that the MRI on deGrom did not show anything concerning to the #Mets. They consider him day to day.

This is positive news for the Mets, who did not need an injury of any sort to their star pitcher. He gave the team a pretty big scare on Tuesday when he left a simulated game early with back trouble.
deGrom has been one of the game’s best pitchers, particularly in the last two years. The back-to-back NL Cy Young winner is coming off a season that saw him post a 2.43 ERA while leading the National League with 255 strikeouts.
