New York Mets' Jacob deGrom leaves start with right flexor tendinitis

New York Mets ace Jacob deGrom was pulled after six innings in his start against the San Diego Padres on Friday night due to right flexor tendinitis, the team said.

DeGrom was removed after throwing six shutout innings in continuation of his dominant start to the 2021 season. He struck out 10 batters and allowed only a single off the bat of San Diego's Wil Myers. He lowered his ERA to 0.56 this season.

DeGrom, speaking after the game, said he felt the elbow injury in between starts this week.
