The New York Mets' starting rotation has a problem staying healthy. Call it a curse, or just awful luck. Jacob deGrom's constant struggles with injury is the best example of this, but another promising starting pitcher is up on the list as well.
New York placed Tylor Megill on the 15-day injured list on Sunday afternoon with right biceps inflammation.
Tylor Megill Injury Update
The IL placement is retroactive to May 12, a day after Megill's blowup start against the Washington Nationals. The 26-year-old righty clearly wasn't on that day, pitching just 1.1 innings while allowing eight earned runs.
Megill is one of the best early-season stories for a red-hot Mets squad. Prior to his dismal start against the Nationals, he touted a 2.43 ERA. He hadn't allowed a run in three of his seven starts, and notably threw five hitless innings in the Mets' combined no-hitter against the Phillies on April 29.
Mets insider Anthony DiComo reported that Megill will undergo an MRI on Sunday to reveal more about his injury.
In a corresponding move, the Mets called up Colin Holderman from Triple-A Syracuse.
New York sits at 23-12 and on top of the NL East standings by 5.5 games. FanDuel Sportsbook's MLB odds show the Mets at +800 (third) to win the 2022 World Series.
