New York Mets ace Jacob deGrom left Friday's game against the San Diego Padres due to right flexor tendonitis, the club announced, according to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com.

DeGrom threw 80 pitches over six shutout innings with 10 strikeouts. He only allowed one hit and now owns a 0.56 ERA.

The right-hander admitted he felt his flexor injury this week between starts.

"I'm not too concerned about it," deGrom said postgame. "I've had a couple elbow issues before, and I know what that feels like. So my level of concern is not too high."

Manager Luis Rojas acknowledged deGrom shouldn't miss any time.

"He expects to make his next start. I expect him to make his next start," Rojas said.

The two-time Cy Young winner missed over two weeks with a side injury in May.
