NEW YORK (AP) Jacob deGrom was scratched by the New York Mets from his scheduled start against the San Diego Padres on Thursday night because of discouraging weather reports.

Rafael Montero was to start in deGrom's place, and deGrom was rescheduled for Friday's series opener at Pittsburgh, pushing the rest of the rotation back a day.

Mets manager Terry Collins said he spoke with deGrom in the afternoon, and they agreed not to risk a weather-shortened outing for the right-hander. Forecasts are calling for thunderstorms beginning around 9 p.m., about two hours after the scheduled start.
