Jacob DeGrom of the Mets is on the verge of starting his first rehab

Max Scherzer has finished rehab and Jacob DeGrom may be about to begin.

Post Mike Pumareported on Thursdaythat Mets was considering a degrom pitch on Sunday night at the start of rehab in Port St. Lucie. Almost a year after his last major league start (July 7th), Mets Ace seems to be approaching his return to the MLB mound.

DeGrom, who was shut down on April 1 due to a stress response to his right scapula, faced a batter on Wednesdayand threw 27 pitches four days after he threw 20 pitches. Buck Showalter, Mets manager, said he wanted to see how DeGrom felt on Thursday before the team settled on the next step. Two Cy Young Award winners will feel better if the rehab start is on the table.

"I can say he's bright where he is," Shawalter said Wednesday. "Body language above all ... I wanted to see him closer and personally, but he's the place you expect from the guy you're approaching. He's crazy about what's happening right now.
