The Mets woes will continue even in a time where play is postponed, as Noah Syndergaard will be the second starting pitcher in New York (first being Yankees’ Luis Severino) expected to go under the knife for Tommy John surgery, per ESPN’s Jeff Passan.
Just a few years removed from being tabbed Mets’ ace of the future, Noah Syndergaard’s faltered into disappointment (3.73 ERA the last 2 seasons, including a 4.28 in 2019) while teammate Jacob deGrom has posted back-to-back Cy Young campaigns. But Syndergaard’s body of work is overall strong for his career, with a lifetime 3.31 ERA and 775 strikeouts in his first 5 seasons. 2020 would have been his age 27 season. Despite being a headache for the front office at times, the Mets management have seemed content with what Syndergaard’s brought to the table thus far.
The Mets have yet to comment on the possibility of Tommy John surgery.
