Mets Injury Update: Noah Syndergaard hurts non-throwing shoulder

Rob Foldy

The Mets' top prospect took a tumble while covering home plate after a wild pitch.

Mets top prospect Noah Syndergaard had to leave tonight's game with Triple-A Las Vegas when he injured his non-pitching shoulder on an attempted tag at home plate. On the play, Syndergaard threw a wild pitch, bouncing a ball some ten feet in front of the catcher. He scrambled to cover home, reaching to catch a wide throw and tumbling over the plate in the process.

Here's a GIF of the play, which doesn't look too bad:

The Mets issued a statement on the injury this evening:

"Noah Syndergaard was removed from the game tonight in Las Vegas after experiencing left shoulder discomfort resulting from a tag play at home plate. The results of precautionary X-rays are pending."

Coming into tonight, Syndergaard had a 4.02 ERA with 57 strikeouts and 19 walks in 53⅔ innings with Las Vegas.

Let's hope the x-rays turn up little more than a bruise and that Syndergaard is back on the mound in short order.
