So now the Mets mention the torn UCL thing.  Thanks for nothing!

09.07... Mets president Sandy Alderson revealed Tuesday that Jacob deGrom was diagnosed earlier this summer with a partial tear of the UCL in his right elbow.
Spin: It has felt for a while like deGrom might be dealing with more than just inflammation, as he's been sidelined since mid-July and only recently resumed throwing on flat ground. Alderson did note that "the ligament is perfectly intact at this point," but there remains no timetable for the ace right-hander's potential return in 2021.

The Mets placed deGrom (forearm) on the 10-day injured list Sunday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
ANALYSIS
The ace will not resume throwing until his right forearm tightness has completely dissipated. How long that will take is unclear at this time, but deGrom has dealt with enough minor arm injuries in 2021 that the Mets are likely to be especially cautious with timing his return.

Jason Stark being Jason Stark as we approach the All-Star break,

NL MVP of the Half-Year: Jacob deGrom, Mets

... So do I even have to spell out the value of having an ace around who gave up two earned runs or fewer in 13 starts in a row? Or the helpful fact that the Mets have scored first in 10 of deGrom’s 15 starts this season. Or that there hasn’t been a single start all season in which he left with his team trailing by more than a run?

And then there’s his Ohtani two-way superhero imitation: deGrom the hitter is batting .364. Hitters facing deGrom are batting .126. According to sportsradar.com, that would be the biggest differential by any starting pitcher (10 starts or more) in the live-ball era — busting a record held by Walter Johnson (.184 points) for the last 95 seasons.

Ken Davidoff:

The Mets are out of their minds if they don’t place deGrom, who saw his second straight start cut short by an arm ailment Wednesday night at Citi Field, on the injured list by the first pitch of Thursday’s game against the Cubs.
