NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom’s next start is reportedly being pushed back a day due to a stiff neck.

DeGrom had been slated to start Friday night against the Nationals. The right-hander will now pitch Saturday afternoon, Fox Sports reported.

Matt Harvey will take the mound in deGrom’s place Friday.
