Syndergaard (elbow) is expected to begin a rehab assignment in approximately one week, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Syndergaard continues making steady progress in his return from Tommy John surgery, a procedure he underwent back in March of last year. He remains on track to return to the big-league roster in mid-June.
Syndergaard topped out at 97 mph with his fastball and threw all his pitches during an intrasquad game Saturday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. It looks like the right-hander has all but completed his recovery from Tommy John surgery in March of 2020. As Syndergaard began the season on the 60-day IL, he won't be eligible to join the Mets' rotation until the end of May, giving him plenty of time to get fully stretched out, although the club has previously indicated it's targeting a mid-June return for Thor.
Syndergaard (elbow) will throw one inning in an intrasquad game at the Mets' alternate training site Saturday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Syndergaard faced live hitters earlier in April, and he'll take another step in his recovery Saturday. The right-hander isn't expected to make his season debut until mid-June while he continues to recover from Tommy John surgery, but Syndergaard has been on the right track recently.
Syndergaard (elbow) will throw a live batting practice session Saturday, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports. Syndergaard hit 96 mph during a bullpen session in mid-March, and he continues to progress in his throwing program while working his way back from Tommy John surgery. The right-hander is on the 60-day injured list and isn't expected to make his 2021 debut until mid-June, but his progress has been encouraging so far.
Syndergaard (elbow) hit 96 mph in a bullpen session Thursday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports. Not many people can throw 96 mph while not at 100 percent. Syndergaard still isn't at that point, as he's just a year out from Tommy John surgery, but the signs appear encouraging. His fastball averaged 97.7 mph in 2019, but he has time to get back to that point by the time he's ready to pitch in games. He landed on the 60-day injured list in late February, meaning his season debut won't come before late May at the earliest.
