Jacob deGrom may be on the 10-day IL, but that doesn't mean he isn't getting himself involved in the New York Mets' games.

On Monday, that meant trolling Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman every chance he got — giving Freeman "infield coaching" tips.

This "coaching" included warning Freeman to watch for a bunt when Pete Alonso was at the dish.

Of course, Freeman is no stranger to having fun on the diamond either, and it looked like he was having some fun with the back-and-forth exchanges.

Will some baseball purists find a way to get upset about deGrom's "coaching"? Almost certainly. But players really seem to be embracing the fact that baseball is a game this season, and funny moments like this have really added to the fun for most fans.
