Noah Syndergaard allowed only an unearned run, striking out eight, over 5 2/3 innings Tuesday against the Cubs.

Despite the strong turn, Syndergaard didn't factor in the decision. Still, it was a promising first for the right-hander after he dealt with arm fatigue before the All-Star break. Seemingly past those issues, Syndergaard will carry a 2.43 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 136/20 K/BB ratio into Monday's start against the Cardinals.

Noah Syndergaard (arm) played catch Friday and will throw off a mound Saturday.

He felt fine after Friday's workout and could be cleared to take his next turn in the Mets' rotation if Saturday's bullpen session goes well. Syndergaard made an early exit from his final start before the All-Star break due to arm fatigue and did not pitch in Tuesday night's Midsummer Classic, but this is believed to be a minor matter.

Noah Syndergaard (arm) is scheduled to throw off a mound Friday.

If the workout goes smoothly, he should be cleared to take his next turn in the Mets' rotation July 19 against the Cubs. Syndergaard left his final start before the All-Star break due to arm fatigue and he did not pitch in Tuesday night's All-Star Game in San Diego, but this is believed to be a manageable thing and unrelated to the bone spur in his right elbow. The hard-throwing 23-year-old right-hander posted a dominant 2.56 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 128/18 K/BB ratio over 105 2/3 innings in the first half of the 2016 season.

Noah Syndergaard (arm) is scheduled to throw on Tuesday.

Syndergaard left his most recent start due to arm fatigue and won't pitch in Tuesday's All-Star Game, but he's not feeling any pain and hopes to avoid any future issues by throwing less often between starts. He's tentatively scheduled to make his next start on July 19 against the Cubs.
Jul 11 - 6:09 PM

Noah Syndergaard (arm) is slated to make his next start on July 19 against the Cubs.

Syndergaard had to leave his last outing with what the Mets are referring to simply as arm fatigue, but they say it's not related to the bone spur he has in his right elbow. While he won't miss a turn in the rotation, the club will have him start the fifth game after the All-Star break. Thor will be a health risk for the second half.
Jul 10 - 10:49 AM

Mets manager Terry Collins said there's no plan for Noah Syndergaard (arm) to undergo an MRI.

Syndergaard left Friday's start with arm fatigue but it doesn't look like it's going to be a long-term issue. The right-hander won't pitch in Tuesday's All-Star Game but he'll make the trip to San Diego and is expected to play catch while he's there. After that, he'll throw a side session in Philadelphia and the team will take it from there. Thor leads the Mets in wins (nine), ERA (2.56) and strikeouts (128) this season.
Jul 9 - 5:06 PM

Noah Syndergaard was pulled from Friday's start against the Nationals due to arm fatigue.

The Mets announced that the injury is not in any way elbow-related. The right-hander showed noticeably diminished velocity in the fifth inning before the team trainer was called out to visit and eventually removed Syndergaard. It's unclear how much time, if any, he'll miss with the issue.
Jul 8 - 10:49 PM

Noah Syndergaard was pulled from Friday's game against the Nationals with an apparent injury.

It's unclear exactly what the star right-hander did, but he was lifted after a visit from the team trainer and manager Terry Collins in the top of the fifth inning. Prior to leaving, he had allowed three runs in 4 2/3 innings of work. Expect the Mets to provide further information on his injury soon.
Jul 8 - 9:22 PM

Noah Syndergaard (elbow) pitched beautifully in Sunday's 14-3 win over the Cubs, striking out eight and allowing one run over seven innings.

Syndergaard scattered seven hits and did not walk a batter. The only run to score over his seven innings of work came when Anthony Rizzo picked up an RBI single in the first inning. Otherwise, nothing doing for the Cubbies. Syndergaard is currently pitching with a bone spur in his right elbow, but he looked no worse for the wear in Sunday's win. The young ace will carry a 2.41 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 123/15 K/BB ratio (101 innings) into a home start against the Nationals next time he toes the rubber. He will be looking to improve to 10-3 in that one.
Jul 3 - 5:34 PM

Noah Syndergaard acknowledged that he is pitching with a bone spur in his right elbow.

Syndergaard had been vehement in his denial of a bone spur, but after multiple reports surfaced outing the injury, he admitted that it was a reality. But still, defiance, as the young ace referred to the bone spur as "pretty insignificant." "[I can] pitch through it with no pain. I'll be ready to go in five day," Syndergaard said on Wednesday. In his last start, the Nationals whacked him for a season-high five runs in three innings. It is admirable that Syndergaard wants to pitch through the injury -- and maybe he will make his next start, as he hopes -- but the Mets would be playing a dangerous game to approach Syndergaard's arm issue with anything other than caution.
Jun 29 - 8:27 PM

Marc Carig of Newsday reports that despite Noah Syndergaard's denial, he is indeed pitching with a bone spur in his elbow.

Syndergaard denied reports after Monday's game, but Mike Puma of the New York Post adds that it's at the pitcher's "insistence" that the club doesn't acknowledge the bone spur. The cat is out of the bag now, though the severity of the bone spur isn't known and it's possible he'll be able to pitch through it, as many pitchers do. The question is how effective he'll be. Syndergaard showed his normal velocity Monday against the Nationals, but he struggled with his control while giving up a season-high five runs over three innings.
Jun 28 - 12:24 AM

Noah Syndergaard was touched up for five runs over just three innings of work in Monday's loss to the Nationals.

He yielded seven hits and walked three. The night could have been even worse, as Syndergaard managed to pitch out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the first inning before the Nats eventually got to him in the third. Thor has now had an ordinary outing followed by a bad one, which is troubling with reports saying he's pitching through a bone spur. Worth noting, though, is that his velocity was fine Monday, as he hit 100 mph multiple times. Syndergaard gets the Cubs this weekend.
Jun 27 - 11:20 PM

Noah Syndergaard denied a report that he has a bone spur in his pitching elbow.

Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reported Monday night that Syndergaard has a bone spur in his elbow, but the ace right-hander told reporters after the game that he doesn't have a bone spur, bone chip, or any other structural damage. He made an early exit from a start against the Royals last week, but an MRI came back clean and he was given anti-inflammatory medication. He struggled in his return Monday against the Nationals, giving up a season-high five runs over just three innings. Bone spur or not, his elbow is a lingering concern.
Jun 27 - 11:08 PM

Noah Syndergaard is also pitching through a bone spur in his throwing elbow, per Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News.

It's a troubling development, as teammate Steven Matz is dealing with the same issue. Both pitchers are trying to avoid in-season surgery at the moment. Syndergaard gave up a season-high five runs on seven hits and walked a season-high three batters over three innings in Monday's loss to the Nationals. Mets manager Terry Collins said that his elbow wasn't an issue in the start, but concern over this situation isn't going away.
