Mets Starter Possibly Headed Back to Injured List


New York Mets starter Tylor Megill left last night's game in the fourth inning. 

The starter had recorded three scoreless innings before beginning to experience shoulder discomfort mid-way through the fourth.   

Megill missed time earlier this season due to bicep-tendinitis. Last night's appearance was only his second start since returning from the prior injury. 

Before his injuries, Megill was having a fantastic season. The pitcher was 4-1 with a 2.43 ERA. 

Overall, Megill is 4-2 on the season with an ERA of 5.01, a 1.21 WHIP, along with 47 strikeouts over 41 innings. 

It has not been announced if or for how long Megill will be out. The pitcher himself is not certain.  

If Megill goes down again, it will be yet another blow to the Mets organization, already hurting from the loss of Scherzer and deGrom.
