Jacob deGrom to undergo Tommy John surgery after being transferred to injured list

New York Mets pitcher, Jacob deGrom, will have to undergo Tommy John surgery after sustaining an injury to his pitching arm. The news was announced by MLB.com earlier today and was confirmed by team officials.

deGrom has had a rough season, with multiple setbacks and injuries that have kept him from playing at his full potential. He was recently transferred to the 60-day injured list by the Texas Rangers, where he was traded before the start of the season. The move was made after more testing was planned on his arm, and it was clear that he would need more extensive medical care.

The Rangers placed deGrom on the injured list just a few days ago, and an MRI was scheduled, which led to the decision to undergo surgery. According to Yahoo Sports, the Rangers have stated that they will continue to monitor the situation and provide further updates as needed.

The news of deGrom’s surgery is a huge blow to the Mets, who were hoping for a comeback from their star pitcher. The team is currently in the midst of a playoff push, and the loss of deGrom is a significant setback.

The New York Post reports that deGrom has been moved to the 60-day injured list, and his injury is the latest sad twist in an already disappointing season. While the precise timeline for his return is not yet known, deGrom’s surgery will likely keep him out of action for a significant portion of next season.

Fans and teammates alike have expressed their disappointment and well wishes for deGrom as he recovers from the injury. Many are hoping for a full and speedy recovery, so that the ace pitcher can return to the mound and lead his team to victory once again.
