Noah Syndergaard, who was placed on the seven-day disabled list last week with a mild flexor-pronator strain, has been tossing a baseball and is expected to return to the Triple-A Las Vegas rotation on June 5.
After Syndergaard’s injury was discovered, he was sent to New York for precautionary measures to be examined by doctors. An MRI came back negative, and Syndergaard was proposed rest and shoulder strengthening exercises.
Syndergaard will likely to make his major league debut at some point in June. The Super Two date, which the Mets are waiting for, will likely pass by the second week of June.
The injury Syndergaard is dealing with may delay his major league debut ever so slightly, but it shouldn’t have a major impact on either his development or the Mets plans for him.
When Syndergaard is promoted, the Mets will have to remove someone from the rotation.
Another option, is for the Mets to return either Montero or deGrom to Triple-A for a month or so in an effort to avoid Super Two status.
