NEW YORK -- New York Mets ace Jacob deGrom was pulled after six scoreless innings Friday night with right flexor tendinitis, a troubling diagnosis for the two-time NL Cy Young Award winner amid a historically dominant season.
DeGrom faced the minimum against the San Diego Padres and had thrown just 80 pitches before being lifted. Manager Luis Rojas met with deGrom in the dugout after the sixth and shook his hand, signaling his night was done.
New York announced the elbow injury two innings later.
DeGrom had a no-hitter until Wil Myers beat the shift with a weak grounder in the fifth.
