Syndergaard leaves game with left shoulder injury

Mets RHP prospect Noah Syndergaard left Thursday night’s game with Triple-A Las Vegas after experiencing left shoulder discomfort resulting from a tag play at home plate.

“The results of precautionary X-rays are pending,” the team said in an e-mail.


2:37 p.m.: Syndergaard has a sprain of his non-throwing shoulder, according to team beat reporter Adam Rubin (ESPN, June 6).

Syndergaard has allowed 27 earned runs on 62 hits in 54 1/3 innings, with 57 strikeouts and 19 walks, this season in Triple-A.

“He was fighting to save a run, but you don’t want your pitchers diving into home plate like that because stuff like that can happen,” manager Wally Backman said after the game (Las Vegas Review-Journal, June 5).

It was Syndergaard’s first appearance since returning from the disabled list for a flexor tendon strain in his right forearm.

“My arm feels great,” Syndergaard said Tuesday (Las Vegas Review-Journal, June 2). “There was just a little bit of elbow pain, very minor, going on a couple weeks ago. But with a lot of elbow injuries happening in professional baseball, they hear about elbow pain and kind of freak out a little bit.  “They just wanted to make sure. “I feel like the injury kind of set me back a little bit.”

“He was fighting to save a run, but you don’t want your pitchers diving into home plate like that because stuff like that can happen,” <--- Has Wally been taking public speaking lessons from Terry Collins?

We'll never see him....he'll just disappear from baseball like the thousands of others before him

Doesn't sound too bad. Looks like the Mets dodged another bullet with him. Maybe our luck is changing!

Hopefully Noah is ok and may miss only 1 or 2 starts.

When TC is gone and Wally takes over(I can dream can't i?) wouldn't it be great if he and Alderson get into it one day and he charges the Sandy,...!

Any idea why they promoted Vaughn to Vegas. He has struggled at Adv. a and AA. Just seems confusing.

Guess we have to see what the story is with Noah.  I'm worried it's bad, especially since the team's "official statement" didn't include the normal BS about "initial X-rays being negative".  It's amazing that this happens on the night of the draft when you have the front office gushing about Conforto. These guys just can't get out of their own way.

Wilpons probably excited that they can now try and use their excuse again of not signing top players since the pitching staff isnt healthy

It's a non throwing shoulder injury, even if it was a major injury and he was out two months he was on an innings limit. Was not part of the plan for this year but next year. It sux it slows his development but will probably not cost him from pitching in September and competing for roster spot next year.

Mets 2014 low point getting swept by cubs? Or 50 cent first pitch?

@Mushroombarleysoup Just what we need -- Billy Martin 2.0. If I wanted that kind of manager and that kind of team, I'd be a fan of the evil empire.

Good question.  Maybe they needed another OF there because we keep bringing them to Flushing?

@kefhrny17  No it's ownership. No cussed. There was no reason to rush him back after his shoulder discomfort, especially with their history diagnosing injuries. Collins on Lagares "Be honest with me, can you play? Of course he will say yes, he was benched when he was playing well, now he's out 4-6 weeks. Last year David Wright, had the hamstring issue, it was obvious he needed to be shut down, but when he got seriously injured it was because he had to go 100% to beat out an infield hit (what are the odds?) he was only supposed to play at 90%..I guess it was David's fault.

You mean the Mets can save more money? Great!!! That's all that matters!

And next year we won't see him till June cause of the same Super 2 BS. Weve been being told "next year" for 5 years now. Its time to start competing

@eavdr10  They also lost 2 of 2 (3rd rained out) to the D-Backs at home.

@eavdr10 no the low point is when the Wilpons decide that 50 Cent is about the level at which they want to spend and sign him as an added arm to the bullpen to help out for the remainder of 2014

The manager had nothing to with the injury. But if it happened in the majors to one of our pitchers then it would be his fault.

TC sucks and will never be a good manager. He's too stupid. Get over it
