Another day. Another dose of bad news if you are a Mets fan. This time the news revolves around Jacob deGrom’s arm. At first the injury was considered not serious, and that deGrom would be able to pitch again.

As time has passed, that is coming into question. The Mets right hander could potentially begin throwing on Wednesday. He is still slated to miss at least two starts, if not more for the Mets, who are just one game back of the second wild card spot in the NL.
