@Mets Lineups for 4/16

Jacob deGrom placed on emergency bereavement list due to medical complications with his newborn baby

Obviously this is freaky stuff that no one wants to see happen. deGrom’s been dealing with an injury issue this week, but now this is the least of anyone’s concerns. Today, news was released the Jacob’s baby, who was brought into the world just a few days ago, has suffered “complications” according to manager Terry Collins. Additionally Collins said that the Mets are “all praying and pulling for him.”

This is news to all of us, and while we want to see deGrom on the field and healthy, everyone wants to see everything fine family-wise first.

Earlier this week, we learned that Jacob’s sore lat muscle prevented him from completing his bullpen session. Logan Verrett will continue to replace deGrom until further notice.
