ST. LOUIS — New York Mets ace Jacob deGrom could return to the mound on Sunday against Arizona at Citi Field.

DeGrom first felt soreness in a back muscle after his previous outing against Boston on April 28 and was scratched from a scheduled start against St. Louis on Tuesday night.

He said he intends to play catch Thursday and hopes to get a go-ahead for a bullpen session Friday.

Mets manager Luis Rojas said that a successful bullpen on Friday would put deGrom on track to start Sunday.
