They’re 13-5 and hold the second-best record in all of baseball.
That’s good news for them in and of itself, but it doesn’t end there.
MLB Network insider Jon Morosi has a positive update on the Mets’ injured ace.
deGrom has been cleared to start a strengthening program.
Morosi notes that recent imaging revealed that there has been a considerable amount of healing in deGrom’s right shoulder.
The ace will undergo further imaging in three weeks.

This is encouraging for the Mets.
Their rotation is already one of the best in baseball, with all of their starters being lights out to start the season, especially the “Big Drip”, Tylor Megill.
Perhaps if his shoulder continues to improve, he could be back in the Mets’ rotation by the end of May or beginning of June, and what a boost that would be for New York.
The rotation would be virtually unhittable, with five guys who can give you some solid innings coverage and give you a chance to win each day, and the options for success don’t even end there.
deGrom would make the Mets look even scarier than they already do, and their rotation would be solidified as the best in baseball when he comes back, assuming the rest of the rotation stays healthy.
deGrom has some more imaging in three weeks, and if he shows more improvement, look to see him back in the Mets’ rotation sooner rather than later.
