DeGrom leaves game with hyperextended right elbow

Losing him for any period of time would be a serious blow to the Mets' rotation, with the team now riding high in the NL East.

Mets RHP Jacob deGrom left his start Wednesday night abruptly with what was revealed to be a hyperextended right elbow.

deGrom underwent an MRI after exiting the game.

The Mets will hope deGrom's injury isn't a sign of things to come after getting off to a 17-10 start through their first 27 games.

Obviously, this may mean there is a chance Matt Harvey could return to the rotation. He looked borderline unstoppable for his four innings of work. But Callaway said the injury didn't take his players' minds off the game.

"I didn't want to get caught in a moment too much", he said.

Severe storms possible after 7 pm tonight
Tuesday is a weird day because the main forcing to initiate storms will be well to the north. In the Omaha area Thursday , showers and thunderstorms are likely, mainly after noon.

DeGrom struck out six in four scoreless innings in the Mets' 7-0 loss to the Braves.

Syndergaard (2-1) recovered from his rough start and lasted six innings. He returned to the dugout and told manager Mickey Callaway his arm hurt but he wanted to keep pitching. The Mets also have converted starters Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman in the bullpen. "We'll just have to see what the results are and go from there".

Soroka, who was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett earlier Tuesday, allowed one run on six hits and no walks while striking out five. Johan Camargo led the Braves with a two run home run, while Ender Inciarte and Ryan Flaherty each added solo shots as well with Inciarte adding a double as part of his two RBI outing. Sean Newcomb, another young gun, goes tonight, and with a win, these Atlanta Braves can win the series in NY, and take the NL East lead. They want to believe.That's to say: You sure do see a ton of Braves hats outside these days.The Braves, or the Baby Braves as they're already being called, have become one of the best stories in baseball, and in the wake of Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Mets, they're just a half-game out of first place in the National League East and on a three-game win streak.

The Mets and Braves were scoreless when deGrom departed. He has gone 18.1 innings without allowing a run since April 15.

"Whatever happens (with deGrom), we can sit here and worry about it, cry about it, whatever". But they will simply not go far without Jacob deGrom. "Somebody's going to have to step up if we get some bad news". The team only had four baserunners all game.
