MRI Reveals No Structural Damage To DeGrom's Elbow

Braves: Snitker said SS Dansby Swanson likely will miss his second straight game Friday because of a sore left wrist.

Despite conflicting reports that deGrom was expected to miss at least four starts with the injury, the 29-year-old will be monitored for any lingering symptoms and, barring an unexpected setback, will be back on the mound when the Mets travel to Cincinnati for a three-game series starting May 7. Mets manager Mickey Callaway said deGrom felt something after swinging the bat in the third inning. He's hitting.143 so far this year (2-for-14), and he hit.211 with a home run and four RBI last year. That's not going to do us any good. "I think it was kind of erring on the side of precaution".

In 17 plate appearances this season, deGrom has put down two sacrifice bunts, struck out five times and walked once. Acuna, playing just his eighth big league game, hit a drive into the second deck in left field that would have gone 451 feet unimpeded, according to MLB Statcast. He won't have to worry about that anymore.

Among other pitchers in New York's rotation, Noah Syndergaard has a 3.10 ERA, while Zack Wheeler owns a 4.09 ERA.

She also claimed "relentless demonisation" by the media against her husband had "eliminated the possibility of a fair trial". At one point during her statement, Camille Cosby said her husband's " unproven accusations evolved into lynch mobs ".

Callaway did not say the swinging ban would be put into effect for the rest of the pitching staff, though he made it clear he would if it were his decision.

The first-year manager, who spent his entire major league playing career pitching in the American League and stayed there for his first coaching job with the Indians, is firmly in the pro-DH club for the National League.

Make no mistake about it, Jacob deGrom is the ace of this staff. "We're going to really hone in on him and make sure everything is 100%, if he's gonna make that start on Monday, but the MRI looked good".
