Noah Syndergaard (lat) is not close to resuming a throwing program.

Syndergaard updated his recovery in an interview on Boomer and Carton on WFAN Thursday. It's not a surprise that he's not ready to throw, as he's about four weeks into a projected six-plus week shutdown period. "I probably won't be able to pick up a ball for quite some time," he said. "I have no pain right now, but I want to make sure my lat is nice and stretched out and flexible before I'm ready to go."

Mets transferred RHP Noah Syndergaard from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Adam Wilk. Syndergaard will be shut down for the next six weeks with a strained right lat.
May 7 - 11:33 AM

Noah Syndergaard (lat) won't resume throwing for at least six weeks.

Syndergaard will have to build his arm strength back up once he resumes throwing, so he's looking at a pretty lengthy absence. "We don't know when he'll be back," admitted GM Sandy Alderson. Thor called his visit with Dr. Neal ElAttrache "all positive," but it's still going to be quite while before he's back on the mound. Syndergaard's lat injury occurred last Sunday in a loss to Washington.
May 6 - 4:49 PM

Noah Syndergaard received "positive news" after getting a second opinion on his partially torn lat.

Syndergaard was examined by Dr. Neal ElAttrache Thursday in Los Angeles. While the news was positive, there's still no timetable for Syndergaard's return. The Mets should expect to be without their best starter for an extender period.

According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, initial conservative estimates have Noah Syndergaard (lat) missing three months.

Syndergaard was diagnosed Monday with a partial tear of his right lat muscle and is flying to Los Angeles on Wednesday for a second opinion from Dr. Neal ElAttrache. More should be known after that visit. Rafael Montero is lined up to the fill the vacant spot in the Mets' rotation starting this Friday. That's obviously a massive step down from Thor.
May 3 - 10:15 AM

Mets placed RHP Noah Syndergaard on the 10-day disabled list with a partial tear on his right lat muscle.

The Mets announced the tear in Syndergaard's lat following an MRI on Monday. There's no clear timetable for his return, but odds are he'll miss at least a couple of months. Rafael Montero is expected to take his spot in the rotation on Friday, which is quite the downgrade for the scuffling Mets.

Noah Syndergaard has been diagnosed with a partial tear of his right lat muscle following an MRI.

Awful news. There's no clear timetable for Syndergaard's return, but obviously he's facing a lengthy absence. It's worth noting that his teammate, Steven Matz, missed two months with a partial lat tear back in 2015. The Mets are off to a disappointing 10-14 start and they are going to have a tough time turning things around without their ace. Panic City, indeed. Rafael Montero is the most likely internal option to take Syndergaard's spot in the rotation, though the Mets figure to be on the lookout for outside options.
May 1 - 11:19 AM

Noah Syndergaard will travel back to New York to undergo an MRI for a possible strained right lat.

Whether the biceps tendinitis Syndergaard dealt with this past week led to him overcompensating and leading to a new injury isn't known, but either way this is obviously not good news. The big right-hander had good velocity Sunday in his start versus the Nationals, but his command was off and he was eventually pulled in the second inning. He'll go on the disabled list even if the MRI doesn't reveal anything too serious, but obviously this has the potential to be something that keeps Syndergaard on the shelf for a while.
Apr 30 - 3:43 PM

Noah Syndergaard exited Sunday's start against the Nationals with an apparent arm injury.

Syndergaard had his usual velocity, but the Nats throttled him for five runs over 1 1/3 frames before the right-hander walked off the field with a trainer. Thor was diagnosed with biceps tendinitis just a few days ago but refused an MRI and said he felt fine when he threw on Friday. It looked like he was pointing to his lat on Sunday, so it's possible he has a new injury. A stint on the disabled list is undoubtedly coming here, it's just a question as to how much time Syndergaard will miss. The Mets should have more on his status after the game.
Apr 30 - 2:24 PM

Noah Syndergaard (biceps) is expected to start Sunday versus the Nationals after getting through a throwing session Friday with no issues.

"My arm feels great," Syndergaard said Friday. "I should have thrown yesterday." Syndergaard's fantasy owners were worried after he had to be scratched from Thursday's start due to biceps tendinitis, and especially after he admitted that it was hard for him to lift his arm above his shoulder. However, he's apparently made a quick recovery. The Mets won't officially clear him for Sunday until they see how he feels Saturday. Sean Gilmartin is on standby just in case.
Apr 28 - 4:34 PM

Noah Syndergaard (biceps) will play catch Friday.

The Mets are holding out hope that Syndergaard will be ready to start on Sunday, but it will depend on how he feels throwing Friday and also the day after on Saturday. If Thor's biceps tendinitis keeps him from taking the ball on Sunday, Sean Gilmartin will start.
Apr 28 - 4:18 PM

Noah Syndergaard has been scratched from his scheduled start Thursday against the Braves due to biceps tendinitis.

Matt Harvey will take the mound in his place. Mets manager Terry Collins described Syndergaard's injury as a "tired arm" and said "we can't take a chance on this guy." The ace right-hander is being sent for an MRI, and the results of that exam should paint a clearer picture about his status moving forward. There's a possibility he could pitch Sunday in Washington if everything checks out fine.
Apr 27 - 10:35 AM

Noah Syndergaard's next start has been pushed from Wednesday to Thursday.

Robert Gsellman will take the mound on Wednesday against the Braves after Tuesday night's rainout. Syndergaard is now set for Thursday afternoon's series finale versus Atlanta. This way everybody in the Mets' rotation can basically stay on turn.
Apr 26 - 1:49 PM

Noah Syndergaard allowed five runs -- three earned -- while striking out 10 over seven innings Thursday against the Phillies.

The Mets defense, which committed three errors on the evening, didn't help his cause, but Syndergaard was also a tad bit more hittable than usual -- his seven hits and three runs allowed were both highs for the year. Of course, that's saying something when three earned runs over seven innings is a bad night. The 24-year-old owns a 1.73 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and ridiculous 30/0 K/BB ratio in his four starts, and he'll attempt to get back in the win column Wednesday against the Braves.
