While New York Mets superstars Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer continue to recover from injuries, one of their fellow pitchers is heading to the IL. Tylor Megill will be out for a while after exiting his latest start against the Milwaukee Brewers in the 4th inning.

The Mets announced that Megill strained his right shoulder and will be re-evaluated in four weeks. He said after the game that the pain had gone down after leaving the game, but he will still need time to recover.

Megill has an ERA of 5.01 but a FIP of 3.62. He has 47 total strikeouts in 41.1 innings this season. Along with Scherzer and deGrom, he joins fellow starter Joey Lucchesi and relievers Sean Reid-Foley and Trevor May on the IL.

New York has not had great luck with their pitchers remaining healthy. deGrom has yet to play this season. Still, they have managed very well. Their 42-23 record is the very best in the National League. Even without their best pitchers, they have managed to keep on winning.

Scherzer has posted a 2.54 ERA through eight games, Taijuan Walker has been enjoying a strong season with a 3.08 ERA and Chris Bassitt, Carlos Carrasco and David Peterson have all been solid. Closer Edwin Diaz is one of the very best in baseball.

The Mets offense has been outstanding this season thanks mostly to Pete Alonso, Jeff McNeil, Brandon Nimmo, Starling Marte, Francisco Lindor and Mark Canha. New York's pitching has managed to hang on despite so many injuries. If the two aces can bounce back, New York should become a favorite to win the pennant.
