Jacob deGrom will get an MRI on his right shoulder on Thursday after leaving Wednesday's start against the visiting Chicago Cubs because of soreness.
"I felt good warming up, felt really good in the first and second innings, then there in the third my shoulder was sore," deGrom said. "This is getting old. I want to be out there competing instead of coming out of these games with these little [things]."
deGrom, 32, struck out eight of the nine batters he faced over three innings, and he drove in a run with an RBI single in the second inning.
"I think it's three separate issues," deGrom said of his injuries this season. "I think the lat was something to do with the swing. The elbow I didn't think too much of ... I was pretty confident that that was nothing. And I'm pretty confident that this is nothing. We did some tests and ruled out anything serious."
