So there’s some good news, and some not so good news in terms of the Mets ace’s return.
Noah Syndergaard is pleased with his recovery so far. And if Syndergaard is happy, Mets fans should be happy as well.
But, he doesn’t really have an idea of when he’ll be back on the team. Yes, in his press conference earlier in May, Sandy Alderson and Syndergaard stated that it would be approximately six weeks until he could resume throwing again.
But, Syndergaard told the Daily News that there’s really no timeline.
"“It’s just a very specific injury. So there’s really no timetable.”"
Well, that’s not reassuring. Not that the Mets have been the best at sticking to timetables (or you know putting and taking people off of the disabled list), but it’s always good to have somewhat of an idea of an expected return. Plus, it would give all us fans a little hope, and something to look forward to.
But, if we have to look on the bright side, we most focus on the fact that Syndergaard is happy with how his recovery is going so far. So that’s a plus, and we hope it continues that way.
"“I’m actually very pleased with how quickly it’s recovering. It kind of sucks that I’m injured right now, but there are a lot of other things that I can focus on in terms of training, so when it is time to come back, I’ll be better than ever.”"
It’s also great to see that Syndergaard has been at every game, supporting his team. But, is anyone surprised by this? It’s evident that Thor loves being on the Mets, and loves his teammates. It’s also evident that he wants to be back on the mound, and if he can’t be exactly there yet, he sure as heck is going to be as close to the mound as he can get.
