MLB.com: MRI on Mets ace Jacob deGrom comes up clear
An MRI on the back of Mets pitcher and back-to-back Cy Young winner Jacob deGrom revealed nothing of particular concern, according to MLB.com's Anthony DiComo.
DeGrom departed a preseason pitching appearance Tuesday with back tightness after only being on the mound for one inning.
DiComo says the Mets are considering deGrom's status as day-to-day.
The Mets open their season against the Braves on July 24. It is unclear who will make the opening day start.
