Jacob deGrom exits New York Mets game with hyperextended right elbow


NEW YORK — Jacob deGrom, the New York Mets right-hander, has left the game against the Atlanta Braves after hyperextending his right elbow.

DeGrom departed after four dominant innings Wednesday night. He allowed two hits and struck out six before he was replaced by Paul Sewald for the fifth.

The Mets’ telecast showed a frustrated deGrom returning to the clubhouse with his glove hand on his head.

DeGrom has thrown 18 1/3 consecutive scoreless innings and seemed in control against the Braves, striking out four straight at one point and lowering his ERA to 1.87. He showed no apparent signs of injury in the fourth, when he worked smoothly through the heart of Atlanta’s order.
