Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom is expected to come off the disabled list Sunday and start against the Phillies, manager Mickey Callaway said Saturday.
Jacob deGrom is indeed okay to come off the DL and start tomorrow as planned. Mickey Callaway said the team is trying to get all their starters to wear braces over their throwing arm so they don’t hyperextend their elbow.

deGrom has been on the DL since May 2, when he left his start after four innings because of elbow discomfort. Callaway originally said deGrom wouldn’t miss any time, but a 10-day DL stint was needed.
Off to a hot start this season, deGrom is 3-0 with a 1.87 ERA and 54 strikeouts.
Although elbow injuries can be scary, especially for pitchers, deGrom’s was never considered serious.
