New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom exits Braves start with hyperextended elbow

DeGrom Removed From Wednesday's Game With Hyperextended Right Elbow

deGrom has thrown 18 1/3 straight scoreless innings for the Mets.

Paul Sewald replaced deGrom. Freeman scored on an RBI double by Nick Markakis before Johan Camargo (two-run blast) and Ryan Flaherty hit back-to-back homers with two outs.

The Braves went into May at 16-11 and trailing the first-place Mets by just 1 1/2 games in the NL East. On this night, rookie Sean Newcomb (eight strikeouts) dominated the opposition, allowing zero runs, one walk and two hits over seven scintillating innings.

Teheran didn't factor into the decision Friday, when he gave up three runs over three innings as the Braves lost to the Philadelphia Phillies 7-3. The likes of Matt Harvey, Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz have all found themselves on the shelf.

"That last at-bat he had, I could just tell something wasn't right with the swing", Snitker said.

Soroka was a first-round pick by Atlanta in 2015 and quickly rose through the minor league ranks.

Cespedes hustled into the bag after blooping a ball down the right field line, and second baseman Albies jumped over him while receiving a throw from the outfield.

The Mets' telecast showed a frustrated deGrom returning to the clubhouse with his glove hand on his head.

Asdrubal Cabrera played the good teammate in the next half inning, picking up the diamonds one by one to deliver to Cespedes before taking his position at second base.

Vargas (0-1, 22.09 ERA) is scheduled to face Braves right-hander Julio Teheran (1-1, 4.50 ERA) in the finale of the three-game series at Citi Field.
