Jacob deGrom finished for season, likely needs elbow surgery

Jacob deGrom

The New York Mets got some very bad news as they chase a wildcard berth, as one of their star pitchers won’t be back until 2017.

General manager Sandy Alderson announced Saturday that Jacob deGrom, who had been slated to start Sunday, will be shut down for the season and require surgery to address an issue with the ulnar nerve in his right elbow.

The issues started a few weeks back for deGrom, who struggled through August before revealing his elbow issue. The Mets do have a two game edge on the St. Louis Cardinals in the race for the second wildcard, but the loss of a key player like deGrom is sure to have an impact.
