Jacob deGrom leaves Mets game after getting hit in arm with liner

PHILADELPHIA — Jacob deGrom left the game in the seventh inning after taking a line drive off his pitching arm. The Mets right hander had thrown 6.2 scoreless innings when Nick Williams’ 99-mile an hour line drive hit him on the back of his right-upper arm in the triceps area.

The team announced that deGrom suffered a “contusion,” of the right triceps. X-rays on the arm were negative. DeGrom was pitching his best game in his last three starts. The sole Mets starter not to go on the disabled list had scattered four hits and struck out nine.
