Jacob deGrom will undergo elbow surgery

Jacob deGrom will undergo surgery later this week to address the ulnar nerve issue in his pitching elbow. Doctors will move the nerve, which is not considered a major procedure—although any surgery should not be minimized. DeGrom has estimated a three-month recovery time.

Jacob deGrom leaves, as does Mets’ best route through playoffs | New York Post

More bad news for the Mets.

Instead, the Mets’ GM said Jacob deGrom had experienced renewed pain in his right elbow. DeGrom would not start Sunday for the first time since Sept. 1, as hoped. He almost certainly is done for the season, heading for an offseason surgery to relocate his ulnar nerve away from an area in which it is being compressed, likely by scar tissue.

DeGrom said doctors informed him the ligament — on which he already has had Tommy John surgery — was sound. The procedure he needs is not uncommon for Tommy John patients, and deGrom said he expects three months of recovery and to be fully ready for next spring training.
