The New York Mets placed ace Jacob deGrom on the 10-day injured list Sunday with forearm tightness.
Manager Luis Rojas said the right-hander will not throw again until the discomfort goes away. The transaction is retroactive to Thursday.
“I’m frustrated,” deGrom said Sunday. “I don’t know what else to say.”
On Saturday, the Mets scratched deGrom from Monday’s scheduled start against the Cincinnati Reds. He felt some discomfort during a throwing session on Friday, but an MRI exam revealed no structural damage.
The 33-year-old deGrom, who last pitched on July 7, is having a season for the ages in 2021. The two-time National League Cy Young Award winner is 7-2 with a major-league-leading 1.08 ERA in 15 starts and has struck out 146 and allowed just 40 hits in 92 innings.
But the four-time All-Star also has dealt with various health setbacks during the season, including right flexor and right shoulder injuries. He skipped last week’s All-Star Game in Denver to spend time with family and rest for the second half of the season.
The Mets did not announce a corresponding transaction prior to Sunday’s game against the Pirates in Pittsburgh.
