New York Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom will return from the disabled list on Saturday against the Los Angeles 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.
