Mets Jacob deGrom exits start with right shoulder soreness

Jacob deGrom’s night couldn’t have started much better, but it ended in frustration.

After firing three perfect innings against the Cubs on Wednesday with eight strikeouts (he also delivered an RBI single in his first at-bat), the right-hander entered the dugout in obvious discomfort and headed for the tunnel with the trainer.

Sean Reid-Foley replaced deGrom on the mound for the fourth inning. DeGrom departed with right shoulder soreness, according to the Mets.

DeGrom was returning from a start on Friday in which he departed with right flexor tendinitis. He missed two starts earlier this season on the injured list with right side tightness.
