Noah Syndergaard Injury: Mets Pitcher Denies He Has Bone Spurs In Pitching Elbow


June 28, 2016

The New York Mets might have a major issue with arguably their best starting pitcher.

The Washington Nationals rocked Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard on Monday night, tagging him for five earned runs on seven hits and three walks in just three innings of work. Syndergaard’s struggles might have been injury-related, as the New York Daily News reported the big righty is dealing with bone spurs in his elbow.

Syndergaard posted a 1.91 ERA with a .223 batting average against in his first 14 appearances this season, but it’s been a different story over his last two starts. The 23-year-old had an 8.00 ERA with a .385 batting average against over those two outings after not being able to work into the fourth inning Monday night.

The good news, if you want to look at it that way, is that doctors reportedly told the club Syndergaard can pitch through the injury if he’s able to manage the pain.

Syndergaard adamantly denied any issue after Monday night’s game, and a second MRI showed no additional issues, according to the Daily News.

Making matters worse for the Mets, left-handed starter Steven Matz also is dealing with bone spurs in his pitching elbow.
