BC-BBN--Mets-deGrom

New York Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom came off the disabled list and started against the Philadelphia Phillies but he was pulled from the line-up after just one inning.

According to MLB.com's Anthony DiComo, the Mets wanted to be proactive after a rain delay halted the game for an hour. The Mets announced that deGrom was removed because of his pitch count and not an injury.

DeGrom (3-0, 1.87 ERA) was held out of his last start as a precaution after he hyperextended his right elbow while taking a swing against the Braves on May 2. Sewald said he was hardly surprised he remained in the game to face Williams. The Mets are 41-17 in their last 58 games at Citizens Bank Park - including a 3-1 victory Friday - and are 41-19 overall against the Phillies since 2015. If I went out there and was fine, then everything's good.

The first inning lasted 39 minutes and produced no runs.

The pitches were deGrom's most in a big league inning, topping his 37 at a rookie in the first inning at Atlanta on July 2, 2014.

The Mets are 3-0 against the Phillies this season, and NY has been dominant in Philadelphia over the last handful of years. Philadelphia's Aaron Nola (6-1) worked out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam by striking out Wilmer Flores and retiring Michael Conforto on a groundout. Cabrera is hitting.319/.365/.541 with six home runs, 22 RBIs and 23 runs scored, while Nimmo is hitting.255 with one homers, three RBIs and 11 runs scored.

The Phillies have been a much-improved team this year, but Friday night showed up that they still have some work to do as they took a very tough 3-1 loss to the Mets in that game. The pen for the Phillies ranks 7th in the league with a 3.36 ERA. His seven pinch-hits this season are tied for second-most in baseball and he's hitting.467 as a pinch-hitter in 2018. They have really needed his offense as Rhys Hoskins is in a slump as he has hit just.143 with one homer in his last 12 games.

Callaway was unhappy with how late the Phillies informed the Mets that Saturday's game was going to be delayed.

As for the Phillies, they're hauling out Zach Eflin for the Saturday start.
