Right after we got done sharing the ridiculous things that New York Mets ace Jacob deGrom did on Friday night against the San Diego Padres, reports emerged that deGrom left the game with an injury.

Anthony DiComo of MLB.Com reports that deGrom left the game with right flexor tendonitis.

deGrom exited the game after six brilliant innings in which he allowed just one hit, zero runs, and struck out 10 (while also driving in two runs). There was no indication of an injury, but those watching the game also took note of him leaving a 3-0 game at just 80 pitches while dominating a great team.

This injury comes on the same night that Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer left his start with an injury. So, a brutal night on the health front for aces in the NL East.

deGrom is having an amazing, unprecedented season with record-setting numbers — such as a 0.56 ERA and just four earned runs allowed — through 10 starts. Hopefully this isn’t a serious injury, but the Mets will surely proceed with extreme cautious to make sure their superace is 100% whatever the case.

UPDATE: deGrom said that his “concern level is not too high,” and that he felt the injury earlier in the week (before proceeding to dominate on Friday night). He hopes to not miss any time.
