Rangers move Jacob deGrom to 60-day IL with elbow slow to heal

ARLINGTON — The elbow inflammation that has sidelined right-hander Jacob deGrom isn’t as cut and dried as a Grade 2 hamstring pull or Grade 1 oblique strain, Rangers general manager Chris Young attempted to explain.

It’s nebulous. Some days are better than others, and deGrom has had both of those in the two weeks since he resumed throwing bullpen sessions. The uncertain timeline, and the need for a spot on the 40-man roster, led to the Rangers transfer deGrom to the 60-day injured list Monday afternoon.

Young said that deGrom has not had a setback. He just hasn’t gone forward far enough.

    I’ve said multiple times that I would rather have a healthy deGrom in September & October than April & May. If you know you’re only going to get a certain amount of innings, I would rather them be at the end of the season and for the post season.

      I think the Rangers feel that way, too.
