Jacob deGrom Exits Early For 2nd Straight Start


New York Mets' ace Jacob deGrom left tonight's game against the Chicago Cubs after 3 perfect innings with a shoulder injury.

Add the shoulder soreness to the litany of ailments deGrom has suffered this season, despite putting up numbers that put him on course for one of the greatest seasons for a pitcher in major league history. 

In addition to tonight's shoulder issue, deGrom has also faced elbow, back and side troubles, but has still compiled a ridiculous 0.54 ERA with a 6-2 record, and an equally insane 111 strikeouts in 67 innings. 

All of baseball should be holding its collective breath that deGrom is OK.
