The Mets need a healthy deGrom to ensure some level of consistency out of their rotation, and the fact that he is now on track to make his next start bodes well for their ability to continue contending in the competitive NL East.
It now appears that he won't miss a single turn in the rotation. He had an MRI, then was checked Thursday by Mets medical director Dr. David Altchek. After a bullpen session on Saturday, Mets' manager Mickey Calloway confirmed deGrom will start that game. "He hadn't had any issues throwing, so he went back out".
"I got good news today". "We're going to really home in on him and make sure everything is 100 percent if he's going to make his start on Monday", Callaway said, adding that he had not yet considered a replacement starter if deGrom was unable to go.
deGrom has a 3-0 record with a 1.87 ERA in seven starts this season. He left Wednesday's game with the score 0-0, and Atlanta went on to win 7-0.

The Mets have lost 10 of 16 games since starting 11-1, but a 17-11 start is still very good and deGrom is necessary to the equation where the Mets continue to contend. Should deGrom require a trip to the disabled list, which seems likely but won't be formally announced until post-game or even tomorrow morning, the Mets would have Noah Syndergaard, Zack Wheeler, Jason Vargas and Steven Matz as healthy rotation pieces.
"I've been injured before in the spot it was in, so I wasn't as anxious", he said. But the bottom line on this is that deGrom won't have to miss a ton of time. "So I was like, this has got to be more of a muscle thing than a structural thing".
"Looking back, I probably should have just taken two and struck out", he said.
