Mets RHP deGrom exits due to hamstring spasm
A right hamstring spasm forced New York Mets ace right-hander Jacob deGrom out of his start against the host Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday after two innings.
The Mets made the announcement about the injury shortly after deGrom exited the second-shortest start of his career. Between innings, the 32-year-old veteran appeared to be talking with a team trainer.
The two-time reigning National League Cy Young Award recipient allowed three runs on four hits with one strikeout and one walk. He exited after 40 pitches.
Right-hander Michael Wacha opened the third inning in place of deGrom, who is 4-1 with a 2.09 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP in 10 starts this season.
