Noah Syndergaard (lat) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday afternoon.
It was the first mound workout for Syndergaard since he landed on the disabled list May 1 with a torn lat muscle. The right-hander is aiming to rejoin the Mets' rotation sometime in September, but he still has many hurdles to clear in his rehab. There is no real timetable at this point. Aug 15 - 4:56 PM

Noah Syndergaard (lat) will throw off a mound Tuesday.

It will be his first time throwing from the bump since he went on the disabled list with a torn lat muscle back in late April. Syndergaard will need multiple sessions from the mound and also multiple rehab starts, so it's still going to be a while before he could rejoin the Mets' rotation.
Aug 14 - 4:27 PM

Noah Syndergaard (lat) is a couple weeks behind the timetable of Matt Harvey (shoulder).

Harvey began throwing off the slope of a mound this week, so obviously Thor is about two weeks away from doing that. The Mets haven't set a firm timetable for Syndergaard's return, and you can bet they'll proceed extra cautiously with him since they're out of the playoff hunt.
Aug 4 - 4:04 PM

Noah Syndergaard (lat) will begin a throwing program Monday.

Syndergaard broke the news himself via his Twitter account. The Mets' ace has been out since the end of April with a partial tear of his right lat muscle. The Mets are poised to be sellers and should be more focused on 2018 at this point, so they figure to take things slow with him. Still, there's a decent chance he'll be back down the stretch if he can avoid setbacks.
Jul 17 - 1:54 PM

Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen indicated Sunday that the club would talk about the possibility of bringing Noah Syndergaard (lat) back as a reliever.

Syndergaard is set to resume a throwing program in less than two weeks as he works his way back from a torn right lat. "If we decide we want to go get Syndergaard back earlier but use him as a one-inning guy, we’ll all talk about that," Warthen said. The pitching coach added that the discussion will revolve around the Mets’ needs and whether they are in contention. The 39-47 Mets look like an unlikely playoff contender at this point and even if they work their way back into the mix it's hard to imagine this idea gaining any traction.
Jul 10 - 5:58 PM

Noah Syndergaard (lat) will rest four more weeks before beginning a throwing program.

Syndergaard was prescribed a six-week shutdown period following the diagnosis of his partial lat tear, but it's actually going to be more like eight weeks. The big right-hander can be ruled out through all of July and most of August.
Jun 15 - 3:59 PM

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."
Jun 9 - 12:04 PM

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.
May 1 - 3:26 PM

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.
