Injury Bug Takes Big Bite Out of Mets Rotation

You won’t see Noah Syndergaard back on the mound anytime in the near future, and that’s a devastating blow to the Mets season. Why Syndergaard did not have an MRI after he complained of discomfort in his bisceps/shoulder area last week, is beyond me. General Manager Sandy Alderson and manager Terry Collins need to take the blame for not forcing Syndergaard to get an MRI before he pitched on Sunday. Alderson is wrong, because he does have the authority to tell Syndergaard what to do. Instead, Syndergaard lasted 38 pitches on Sunday, before being diagnosed with a partially torn lat muscle that could sideline one of their top pitchers for the foreseeable future.

After consulting a second doctor, Syndergaard will not throw for at least 6 weeks and the Mets are considering moving their ace to the 60-day disabled list. While he may not be done for the season, the Mets will have to evaluate their playoff positioning and Syndergaard’s long-term health before bringing him back in the second half of the season.
