DeGrom to attempt to throw side session Friday


Mets Manager Terry Collins has stated that Jacob DeGrom will meet his teammates on Friday in Cleveland following the birth of his newborn son on Monday night, and attempt to throw a side session. If deGrom is able to complete his side session with no issues he will rejoin the rotation and start next week in Philadelphia. However if his right lat is still an issue and he can’t complete the bullpen session, the Mets will place deGrom on the disabled list and he will be backdated to April 9th. Logan Verrett will most likely continue to assume deGrom’s rotation spot in the event that deGrom is not healthy enough to pitch.
