New York Mets starter Noah Syndergaard has a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow and is expected to undergo Tommy John surgery in the near future, sources tell ESPN. The procedure will keep him out until at earliest April 2021 and likely into the summer months.

Noah Syndergaard was experiencing discomfort during spring training and pitched through it. Once the sport went into hiatus, he was checked out. The result is Tommy John surgery.

Oh no! I hope my #1 follower does ok. Now if you ever need such surgery I guess now is the “best” time to get it – can you even get it right now? Do hospitals have room for this (naive question, I do not know).
Looking ahead, Thor is signed thru 2021.
The Mets have not yet chosen to share the press announcement with me.
Will update as news comes in..
