Noah Syndergaard MRI comes back clean

Brad Barr-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets can breathe a sigh of relief.

After hitting the disabled list with a flexor-pronator strain, top Mets prospect Noah Syndergaard underwent an MRI in New York this afternoon, and the results came back clean. Syndergaard has been prescribed shoulder-stretching exercises, which is good news considering his original injury has in some cases been a precursor to Tommy John surgery for other pitchers. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson says it's good to know that Syndergaard is "essentially fine."

In ten starts this season, Syndergaard has a 4.02 ERA with 57 strikeouts and 19 walks in 53.2 innings. His most recent start came on May 21, when he gave up three runs over five innings against Fresno. The 21-year-old was generally expected to make his major league debut sometime after baseball's Super Two cutoff date, much like Zack Wheeler did last year and Matt Harvey did in 2012. Even with a brief delay, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Syndergaard's debut a little delayed.
