Jason deGrom Feeling Good, Hopes to Pitch Opening Game

The New York Mets can breathe a sigh of relief with their ace righty.

In a meeting with the press, Jacob deGrom provided an update on his health.

“I feel good,” said the star pitcher. “That’s the goal, to pitch on Opening Day.”

The back-to-back reigning NL Cy Young winner deGrom put a scare into the Mets this week when he exited a simulated game early because of a back issue, which is always concerning for a pitcher. He subsequently underwent an MRI, but the results were fortunately very encouraging.

Opening Day for the Mets is scheduled for July 24 against the Atlanta Braves. He should be a no-brainer to draw the start if he is physically ready to do so.
