Jacob deGrom may not need MRI on elbow
The prognosis on New York Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom may be a bit better than previously thought.
deGrom was spotted playing catch in the outfield on Saturday despite an elbow that was bothering him the day before. He was previously set for an MRI, but according to manager Mickey Callaway, that may no longer even be necessary.
Update via Mickey Callaway: deGrom might not get an MRI Monday. He’ll still get seen by doctors, but he feels good enough that they might not bother with the MRI. https://t.co/koAJwK11eD

Anytime you hear about a pitcher going in for an MRI after experiencing elbow soreness, as we did Friday, you tend to worry about the worst. However, it simply doesn’t appear that deGrom’s elbow issues are that serious, and that’s great news for both the Mets and their prize arm.
