Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom to return Saturday against Dodgers
He was placed on the disabled list with tendinitis in his right rotator cuff earlier this month. The rookie threw a bullpen session on Tuesday in Oakland and did not have any problems with his shoulder.
In 16 starts this season, deGrom has gone 6-5 with a 2.87 ERA and 94 strikeouts in 100.1 innings.
The Mets are 59-68 and in fourth place in the N.L. East. They are 7.5 games out of the final Wild Card spot.
