New York Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom has been diagnosed with right forearm soreness, the Mets announced.
On Sunday, manager Terry Collins told reporters at Citi Field that DeGrom is also likely to miss more starts due to the injury.
Results of the precautionary MRI were 'good' and showed no structural damage.
DeGrom exited his start on Thursday after five innings and was tended to by the team trainer. He will miss his upcoming start against the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday.
He will be slated to throw when the discomfort subsides.
New York is currently without starting pitchers Matt Harvey, Steven Matz and Zach Wheeler as they are all sidelined by injuries.
The Mets are 70–66 on the season and sit a game and a half behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the second wild card spot.
