Syndergaard pitched a scoreless first inning with just a single hit allowed before exiting Saturday's loss to Washington. He didn't factor into the decision. Syndergaard's last start was on April 30, so after missing nearly five months, the hard-throwing righty was handled cautiously by the Mets. Barring any setbacks, he projects to make another appearance before the end of the season. It's probably not worth owning Syndergaard outside of keeper/dynasty settings at this stage of the game.
Syndergaard (lat) has been confirmed as the starting pitcher for Saturday's game again the Nationals. Syndergaard is scheduled to throw only one inning Saturday, but he will be taking the mound for the Mets for the first time in nearly five months. As long as all goes well, he could make one more appearance before the regular season concludes. Fantasy owners did not get what they hoped out of Syndergaard in 2017, but barring any setbacks the rest of way, his return to the mound should erase any concern heading into the offseason.
Syndergaard (lat) will start Saturday's game against the Nationals, but then be replaced by Matt Harvey in the second inning, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. This will be Syndergaard's first major-league appearance since April 30, although it'll be a brief outing. The right-hander was able to throw 39 pitches during a simulated game Monday, but will surely be in store for far less during Saturday's contest. Looking ahead, it hasn't been determined whether he will take the mound again, or in what capacity, over the final week of the 2017 season, although Syndergaard did state that he would like to make two appearances before the end of the year. There will likely be a definitive plan set up early next week, especially once the club is able to determine his status following Saturday's game.
Syndergaard (lat) will be re-evaluated Friday, SportsNet New York reports. Team doctors will gauge Syndergaard's health upon the team's return home, four days after his most recent simulated game (39 pitches). Syndergaard is not currently scheduled to start a game this weekend against the Nationals, but there has been talk that the right-hander could still make a couple appearances before the end of the season.
Syndergaard (lat) may make two appearances over the rest of the season, Matt Ehalt of NorthJersey.com reports. He felt really good following Monday's simulated game, in which he threw 39 pitches. The team will wait to see how he feels Tuesday before determining the next step, but it seems possible he could start Saturday's game against the Nationals. Unfortunately, it does not sound like Syndergaard will be treated like a traditional starting pitcher, as his pitch count likely won't allow him to go deep enough to qualify for a win, whenever he does return to the mound. It sounds like he would be allowed to make two appearances before the end of the season, with a start coming this weekend and then another one coming sometime next week.
