Mets place Syndergaard on DL as paper move

X-rays of Noah Syndergaard‘s scapula were negative, but he has been placed on the disabled list after a home plate collision knocked him out of his most recent start.



June 11: Syndergaard was placed on the minor league’s 7-day disabled list, retroactive to June 9.

The Mets said he did not have a setback, they simply needed to clear his roster spot.

He is eligible and still likely to return from the DL on June 16.


June 6: Syndergaard has been diagnosed with a sprained A/C joint in his left, non-throwing shoulder. He has been told by doctors to refrain from throwing for 5-7 days, after which he can pick up where he left off.

Syndergaard injured the shoulder during his first start back from being on the disabled list with a forearm strain.

So much for Wonderful Wally getting into the kid's head for not being aggressive enough. Add to that a PROSPECT diagnosed with needing Tommy John. Can you imagine the size of the lynch mob if TC were managing these kids?

"likely to return from the DL as soon as he is eligible"

Isn't that what they said about Ike back when he was still a real prospect and first got hurt?

I realize velocity isn't everything but there were pitchers available in the later rounds of the draft..that could throw high 90s ..but the Mets didn't take them...hope what they picked [low 90s] pans out.

By the way, why would the Las Vegas 51s need to "clear a roster spot"?  Did they need to make room for Chase Bradford?

The Mets number one prospect, who has been built up to be a "can't miss," is on the Minor League DL.  Nothing to be worried about...unless you were counting on seeing him pitch in the Majors anytime sooner than September roster expansion.

It's beginning to look more like the "super two" date in 2015.

Another excuse for not spending money next year.

How exactly does one sprain a joint in the non-throwing shoulder while pitching?

I hope he can hit with RISP. 

funny thing is that between him Harvey and Wheeler....Wheeler is supposed to be the health risk while Syndergaard and Harvey are supposed to be the ones who can stay healthy lol....baseball is crazy

Please just bring him up when he's healthy already. AAA Vegas is a waste.

With the Mets track record he should be ready to pitch in March.

More time off for the elbow soreness. Probably for the best.

Good news! Good thing there is no need to rush him up. I think he will be up around the all star break if degrom comes down to earth or when they deal colon

Best news of the day.  I was fearful last night that he had a fractured collarbone.

@flmetsfan Considering his age [23] and how ell hes pitched im suprised that Steven Matz hasn't been promoted to AA ball...most of the pitchers we now have in AA ball aren't great anyway.

@Albert E Lewis @flmetsfan 

If I'm not mistaken he was selected for the FSL Allstar Game - so they will probably let him play there and then promote him. The normal promotions will be anyway after the End of the first half in A and A+ levels
