Mets ace Jacob deGrom is being put on the injured list and returning to New York for an MRI on his elbow after the NL Cy Young Award winner reported a sore right arm.

“He came in on the off-day and played a little catch and started feeling it a little bit,” Mets manager Mickey Callaway said before Friday night’s game at St. Louis. “We’re not sure what it is.”

The 30-year-old deGrom is 2-2 with a 3.68 ERA in four games this season.

DeGrom will go on the injured list retroactive to Tuesday, the team said.
