Jacob deGrom MRI comes back clean, could start Friday
Jacob deGrom’s injury scare appears to have been only a scare after all.
According to New York Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen, deGrom underwent an MRI on his elbow and it came back clean. He threw another bullpen on Monday, and if he comes through Wednesday’s without issue, he could start on Friday.

Jacob deGrom completed his bullpen session today without issue. He's scheduled for another on Wednesday and, assuming all goes well, remains in line to come off the injured list and start Friday against the Brewers.

The initial word on deGrom’s elbow was discouraging, but it cleared up quickly and there’s nothing significantly wrong. It’s definitely the best-case scenario for the Mets, and barring a setback, he’ll pitch this week.
