Mets General Manager Billy Eppler says Jacob deGrom will throw 25 pitches in a rehab start at Single-A Port St. Lucie on Sunday and they will then monitor his progress and recovery. Eppler: ""Every day that we can check a box off is a day that we feel better and it’s clearly a day closer. The fact that he’s kind of been able to meet these goals and standards is keeping us optimistic and on course." The GM also stated he has no proverbial "shopping list" as far as re-tooling the roster, but rather when the opportunity presents itself, whether it be pitching help or on the offensive side of the ball. Though Eppler admittedly does not talk in "absolutes", he doesn't envision trading any of the Mets top prospects in any possible deals.
