Jacob deGrom (elbow) said Friday that he's close to beginning a throwing program.
DeGrom had surgery in September to repair ulnar nerve damage in his right elbow. He added Friday that he's feeling much better than he did pre-op, as he's now able to snap his fingers without discomfort. DeGrom is not expected to be limited at the beginning of spring training. Dec 2 - 11:23 AM

Jacob deGrom underwent successful surgery to repair ulnar nerve damage in his right arm on Wednesday.

This officially puts deGrom's 2016 season to rest. In 148 frames, the 28-year-old right-hander pitched to a 3.04 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 143/36 K/BB ratio. Barring setbacks in his rehab, deGrom should be ready to roll come spring training of 2017.

Jacob deGrom will undergo season-ending surgery later this week to repair ulnar nerve damage in his right arm.

As previously speculated. The right-hander has been experiencing arm trouble since August and wound up making just one start in September (on September 1 against the Marlins) for the Wild Card-hunting Mets. He finishes with a 3.04 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 143/36 K/BB ratio over 148 innings. If the Mets make the postseason, they'll probably be working with a patchwork starting rotation. But that's been their situation for a while now.

Jacob deGrom (elbow) has been scratched from Sunday's start against the Twins and likely needs surgery.

He's been having trouble with the ulnar nerve in his right elbow. The surgery would obviously sideline him for the rest of 2016, though it shouldn't affect his availability for spring training. DeGrom logged 216 innings between the playoffs and regular season last year and that seemed to take a toll on him in 2016. It's a miracle the Mets are still in the postseason hunt with all the injuries they've had this season. Gabriel Ynoa will start in deGrom's place Sunday against Minnesota.

Jacob deGrom (forearm) will start on Sunday against the Twins.

DeGrom resumed throwing off a mound nearly a week ago and hasn't had any issues with his forearm. He's expected to be limited to around 75 pitches in what will be his first start since September 1.

Jacob deGrom (forearm) will throw again Wednesday.

He made it through a 35-pitch bullpen workout on Monday without issue and now deGrom might be nearing the final step in his rehab from this two-week bout of forearm soreness. One option the Mets are considering is a piggyback start with Steven Matz (shoulder) on Sunday afternoon against the Twins. Matz would probably take the smaller chunk of the game because he's been out longer than deGrom.

Jacob deGrom (forearm) could return to action for the Mets on Sunday against the Twins.

There is talk of deGrom piggybacking with fellow rehabbing Mets starter Steven Matz (shoulder) in that series finale at home versus Minnesota. The right-handed deGrom hasn't pitched since September 1 because of right forearm soreness. Matz has been out since August 14. It figures deGrom would take the first 4-5 innings on Sunday with Matz (and possibly closer Jeurys Familia) covering the rest.

Jacob deGrom (forearm) threw 35 pitches in a bullpen session Monday.

DeGrom threw 10 pitches off a mound on Saturday, but he ramped things up with this one and also took a 15-minute break in the middle to simulate innings. It was a step in the right direction, but it's unclear when he'll be ready to make his return. It's possible he could be brought back in relief before making a start. Rafael Montero is filling his spot in the rotation for now.

Jacob deGrom (forearm) threw off a mound on Saturday.

He only threw 10 pitches. It was deGrom's first mound session since the team shut him down with forearm inflammation earlier this month. DeGrom said he felt good but it's unclear when he'll make his next start. Rafael Montero will again start in his place Monday versus Washington.
Sep 10 - 4:36 PM

Jacob deGrom (forearm) played catch Friday.

DeGrom stayed home when the Mets traveled to Cincinnati, but he has rejoined them in Atlanta and resumed a throwing program. It's unclear at this point when he'll be ready for mound work or when he might rejoin the rotation, but obviously this is a nice step.
Sep 9 - 3:33 PM

MLB.com's Anthony DiComo reports that Jacob deGrom (forearm) has rejoined the Mets and "should start throwing imminently."

DeGrom didn't travel with the club to Cincinnati but has joined them in Atlanta. It's been just over a week since he's started, as the right-hander is dealing with some soreness in his right forearm. When he might be ready to start again isn't known at this point, but obviously it's good news that he's poised to resume throwing. Rafael Montero is currently filling in for deGrom.
Sep 9 - 1:59 PM

The Mets announced Friday that Jacob deGrom had his right forearm examined on Friday, and though no structural damage was found, it's likely that he will miss his next scheduled start.

DeGrom experienced soreness in his forearm in Thursday's start against the Marlins. The results are encouraging and seem to confirm that deGrom is merely going through a dead arm phase, but it does sound like he will miss at least one trip through the rotation. Rafael Montero could be a candidate to make another start for the Mets in his place.
Sep 2 - 6:41 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins on Friday wouldn't commit to Jacob deGrom making his next start.

"I really can't discuss that just yet," Collins said. Uh oh. DeGrom struggled Thursday for the third straight start and at one point called trainer Ray Ramirez to the mound for a discussion. His velocity was also down on Thursday and it seems the right-hander may be dealing with an undisclosed injury or perhaps a dead arm phase. The Mets are expected to reveal more about deGrom prior to Friday's game.

Sep 2 - 4:18 PM

Jacob deGrom allowed three runs on six hits over five innings in Thursday's loss to the Marlins.

DeGrom started strong, striking out four through two scoreless innings, but the Marlins got one in the third and two more in the fifth before deGrom exited. He did strike out six on the night, but it came with an uncharacteristic four walks. The loss was the third in a row for the 28-year-old, who is now 7-8 with a 3.04 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 24 starts. The Mets gave deGrom a week in between starts in hopes the rest would do him good -- he was actually slated to get a few more days, but Steven Matz' ailments forced him back into the rotation sooner -- so it's unclear when the club may set his next start. It will likely come sometime next week against the Reds.
Sep 1 - 10:45 PM

Jacob deGrom will return to the Mets' rotation Friday against the Nationals.

DeGrom has struggled over his last two starts and will be skipped in the rotation on Monday in order to give him a bit of a breather. His return will push Noah Syndergaard's next start back to Saturday.
