The New York Mets have shut down the starting pitcher for six weeks after experiencing right elbow inflammation.

Some bad news for Noah Syndergaard and the New York Mets. Syndergaard has been shut down for six weeks after experiencing inflammation in his right elbow according to reports.

This is just the latest setback for Noah Syndergaard has experienced quite a few injuries in previous years, including missing all of 2020 after undergoing Tommy John surgery. The last time Noah Syndegaard saw major league action was in 2019. The pitcher known as Thor hard a 4.28 ERA, 1.234 WHIP, and 9.2 K/9 in 32 starts that season. In two rehab starts with St. Lucie, Syndergaard allowed one hit and walk while striking out six in five innings.

When/if Noah Syndergaard does return he would be a huge boost to the rotation as they still waiting for Carlos Carrasco to make his Mets debut. New York is making things work right now, but the question is for how long can they keep doing this. Some stability in their rotation would do wonders for their rotation as nine pitchers have already made starts this season.
