There are no plans at this time for Noah Syndergaard to undergo surgery to remove a bone spur in his right elbow.
Teammate Steven Matz underwent surgery last week to remove a bone spur, but the Mets had indicated all along the Matz's spur was more of an issue than Syndergaard's. "Thor" pitched through the malady for months and posted a 2.65 second-half ERA before a dominant Wild Card Game performance. It's always possible the spur will move to a spot where it becomes more of an issue, but for now it doesn't appear to be anything to be overly concerned about. Oct 10 - 7:06 PM

Noah Syndergaard was phenomenal in taking a no-decision in Wednesday's 3-0 Wild Card Game loss to the Giants, striking out 10 while tossing seven innings of shutout ball.

Syndergaard took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before Denard Span singled with two outs in the frame to end the no-no attempt. He finished his superlative evening having thrown 108 pitches (70 strikes). Despite the stellar performance, Syndergaard was unable to come away with a decision, as Madison Bumgarner matched him with seven scoreless innings of his own (and then some). Conor Gillaspie would burn Jeurys Familia with a three-run homer in the ninth to end the Mets' season.
Oct 5 - 11:24 PM

Noah Syndergaard will start Wednesday's Wild Card Game versus the Giants.

He'll be squaring off against 2014 postseason hero Madison Bumgarner. Syndergaard's first full major league season was a dominant one, as he put up a 2.60 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 218/43 K/BB ratio across 183 2/3 innings. Thor faced the Giants twice during the regular season, allowing four runs with 12 strikeouts over 13 2/3 frames. He shut them out over eight innings in late August.
Oct 3 - 4:23 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins has confirmed that Noah Syndergaard will not start Sunday's game against the Phillies.

The right-hander will simply throw a long bullpen session instead after the Mets clinched the top National League Wild Card spot on Saturday. Gabriel Ynoa will take the ball versus the Phils.
Oct 2 - 1:38 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Noah Syndergaard may not make his scheduled start Sunday against the Phillies.

The plan had been for Syndergaard to throw about 25 pitches on Sunday but now the Mets are leaning toward having him throw a bullpen session instead. The Mets need Syndergaard fresh for Wednesday's Wild Card game at Citi Field. Collins also said that Yoenis Cespedes and Asdrubal Cabrera will have the day off on Sunday.
Oct 1 - 5:09 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Noah Syndergaard will only throw 25 pitches in Sunday's start against the Phillies if the team has already clinched a Wild Card.

That would set him up to be fresh for next Wednesday's National League Wild Card Game. However, if the Mets are still in need of a win to get in on Sunday, Syndergaard would not be on a limited pitch count. Bartolo Colon might then be asked to start that loser-goes-home Wild Card Game next Wednesday.
Sep 28 - 4:30 PM

Noah Syndergaard struck out eight while allowing one run over six innings in Tuesday's win over the Marlins.

Syndergaard gave up five hits, all singles, without issuing a walk in the win. The right-hander improved to 14-9 with a 2.60 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 31 games, including 30 starts. In theory, the start Tuesday should have been his last, but with the Mets' rotation in shambles and Sunday technically being the fifth day after his start it's possible -- perhaps likely -- that the team will throw him in the regular season finale, assuming they don't already have a Wild Card spot locked up.
Sep 27 - 10:36 PM

Noah Syndergaard (illness) will start Tuesday against the Marlins.

Syndergaard needed a few extra days after falling ill with strep throat. He threw a bullpen session on Saturday and appears to be feeling much better. Syndergaard is now in line to pitch the Mets' regular season finale in Philadelphia next weekend. With a slim lead in the Wild Card, it's very possible the Mets' season could come down to that game.

Noah Syndergaard (illness) will throw a bullpen session on Saturday.

Syndergaard was scratched from his scheduled outing Saturday after coming down with strep throat. He seems to be feeling better and could return Monday or Tuesday against the Marlins. Left-hander Sean Gilmartin will fill in Saturday against the Phillies.
Sep 24 - 4:51 PM

Noah Syndergaard has been scratched from Saturday's scheduled start versus the Phillies due to strep throat.

Well, it's certainly a poor time for Syndergaard to get sick, but the Mets say he's "extremely under the weather." The Mets are hoping that the right-hander will be ready to start on Monday or Tuesday, so he might still be able to make two starts the rest of the way. However, Syndergaard will no longer be lined up to start a potential Wild Card Game. Sean Gilmartin will start Sunday.
Sep 23 - 4:04 PM

Noah Syndergaard didn't have it Monday, getting torched for five runs over just 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Braves.

Thor somehow hadn't faced the Braves yet this season and now wishes he still hadn't. They got to the big right-hander with eight hits and three walks, as Syndergaard threw a whopping 99 pitches over his 3 2/3 frames. Syndergaard had been on a roll, so we'll just have to chalk this one up as a fluke. He has a good shot to bounce back on Saturday against the Phillies.
Sep 19 - 10:44 PM

Noah Syndergaard was brilliant Tuesday, holding the Nationals to one run while striking out 10 over seven frames in a 4-3 extra-innings victory.

The Nats plated the first run of the game on an RBI double from Wilson Ramos in the second inning, but that's the only time they were able to dent the scoreboard against Thor. He gave up only four base knocks and one walk on the night. It was the fifth time this season but the first time since June 15 that Syndergaard had a double-digit strikeout game. He also eclipsed the 200-strikeout plateau on the night. Thor will take on the Braves and Phillies next week.
Sep 13 - 11:15 PM

Noah Syndergaard worked five scoreless innings Wednesday in the Mets' defeat of the Reds.

Syndergaard found himself in troublesome spots throughout the day, yielding four walks and six hits over just five frames, but he struck out seven batters and limited any major damage. The ace right-hander now stands 13-8 with a 2.48 ERA and 195/39 K/BB ratio in 167 innings this season for the Mets, who have won five straight games and are very much in the mix for a National League Wild Card spot. Perhaps even the top National League Wild Card spot.
Sep 7 - 4:15 PM

Noah Syndergaard suffered a tough-luck loss Friday after allowing two runs over seven innings against the Nationals.

Syndergaard allowed just three hits and one walk, but the Nationals swiped four bases, which set up both runs against him. Opposing teams have now stolen 45 bases against him for the year, which is the most by any MLB pitcher since Hideo Nomo in 2001. Syndergaard’s four strikeouts were his lowest total since June 22. On the bright side, he appears to be finishing the season strong while his fellow rotation-mates are dropping like flies. He’ll bring a 2.56 ERA into a start against the Reds next week.
Sep 2 - 11:22 PM

Noah Syndergaard turned in a dominant start Saturday against the Phillies by tossing seven innings of one-run ball as part of a 12-1 blowout victory.

Syndergaard actually trailed early after giving up a solo homer to Freddy Galvis in the top of the third inning, but he shut down the Phillies’ lineup from there. He gave up just two hits on the night while walking two and striking out seven. He retired 13 out of the final 14 batters he faced. After a long stretch of uncertainty, Syndergaard has turned the corner with back-to-back dominant starts. He now owns an impressive 2.55 ERA and 184/34 K/BB ratio over 155 innings. A crucial start against the Marlins awaits him next week.
