New York Mets’ Jacob deGrom puts together second straight strong rehab start for Class A St. Lucie

New York Mets ace Jacob deGrom made his second rehab start for Class A St. Lucie on Friday night in Daytona, Florida, allowing three hits in three scoreless innings with six strikeouts and no walks.

The right-hander threw 29 of 36 pitches for strikes as he continues to make progress from a stress reaction in his right scapula that has sidelined him the entire season.

“Coming off the first time in a game, being on a five-day routine — I felt really good,” deGrom told reporters after his outing against the Cincinnati Reds affiliate in Daytona. “I was happy to get out there and get three complete innings.”
