Jacob deGrom leaves game with hyperextended right elbow

03 May 2018

Paul Sewald enter the game in his place.

Just a poor night at Citi Field.

The Mets eventually announced that deGrom has a hyperextended right elbow. The team did not expect to release any information until Thursday.

The Braves are 11-5 in their last 16 games in NY and have won five of their last six games overall, including five of six on the road. But of far more importance is the fate of deGrom, their co-ace along with Noah Syndergaard.

DeGrom was injured while striking out swinging in the third inning.

It's hard to speculate as to a timetable for a return, especially with deGrom's particular injury history, but hopefully it's as soon as possible. He still breaks their hearts ... but you better never say a bad word about him. My arm hurts [after] that last swing.

"I'd like to sit down with Manfred or anybody at Major League Baseball and talk to them about it, because it's rubbing everybody the wrong way", Frazier said. "So he went back out". DeGrom pitched again, but came back with soreness in his bicep, according to Callaway. We've got to remember - he's only 20 years old.

DeGrom allowed two hits - both singles - and did not walk a batter. He threw 46 pitches, 36 for strikes.

The Mets telecast showed what appeared to be diamonds glistening in the dirt near the bag. "We lost fair and square", Frazier said. "Obviously Jake is one of the main cogs here on the team and for the rotation, really sets the tone for us".

Mets manager Mickey Callaway confirmed the injury happened during that at-bat.

The Mets should pass along an update later tonight about the nature of the injury.

"Who knows?" Callaway said.

DeGrom upped his scoreless innings streak to 18⅓, and he seemed in control against the Braves. Swanson struck out in his first two at-bats before being replaced by Johan Camargo in the field for the sixth inning. Ender Inciarte doubled to lead off the inning and scored on Freddie Freeman's two-out single.

Frazier's frustrations boiled over Wednesday while the Braves were shut down by starter Sean Newcomb.

Acuna made a huge impact during his first week in the big leagues, hitting.421 (8 of 19) with a towering home run into the second deck at Cincinnati, four RBIs and a stolen base.

The Braves poured it on with four in the eighth against Gsellman. As of this writing, 74% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Mets to beat the Braves on the moneyline.

"I'm sure I won't sleep very good", he added. "He's a big part of our team".
