Mets' Noah Syndergaard: Must face live hitters again before returning

Manager Terry Collins said Saturday that Syndergaard (lat) needs to face live batters again before returning to game action, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

There was some hope that Syndergaard could pitch this weekend, but Collins' comments effectively ruled out a return in Atlanta. Syndergaard was scratched from a scheduled simulated game last weekend due to lingering soreness and thus hasn't faced live hitters since his second rehab start back on Sept. 7.
