The New York Mets loaded up by signing Max Scherzer and Chris Bassitt. Jacob deGrom was set for another Cy Young campaign, and things in the Big Apple were looking pretty good.
Then, a rash of injuries went down through the Mets roster, and their loaded pitching staff went from the best in baseball to one of the worst in a matter of months.
Things might be looking up for the Mets as Jacob deGrom was seen throwing on Tuesday afternoon.

Yes, that is deGrom throwing at Citi Field, and Mets fans — and baseball fans, for that matter — rejoiced at the news of one of baseball’s best pitchers.
Jacob deGrom’s pitching hype video has Mets fans excited
Back on April 1, it was reported that deGrom would miss MLB Opening Day and a significant chunk of time. deGrom’s return is still up in the air, and some reports said late June while others said July.
Nonetheless, deGrom throwing is a step in the right direction, and everybody is excited.

Danny Abriano of SNY gave a more concrete update after the deGrom video surfaced online.
Jacob deGrom has been expected to rejoin Mets in New York when he gets to the final stages of his throwing program
If that is what’s happening here (Mets are back in NY on Thurs) there could be some light at the end of tunnel
Once he’s on a mound, it’ll get very real https://t.co/0fS46g42Uw

Even with all of the injuries, the Mets are 29-15 and on top of the National League East by a wide margin. If they can get deGrom, Scherzer, and Tyler Megill to return around the All-Star Break, the rest of the National League is in for a lot of trouble.
