NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Noah Syndergaard, the Mets’ top prospect, has been placed on the disabled list with a flexor pronator strain in his right elbow.
The 21-year-old pitcher will fly to New York to meet with team doctors for “precautionary reasons,” according to the Triple-A Las Vegas 51s.
“It’s between, basically, your wrist and your elbow,” WFAN Mets beat reporter Ed Coleman told host Marc Malusis on Monday. “And it usually comes from overuse. It could be one pitch, but I’m not sure which it is in this case. But Syndergaard is gonna come up here and take an MRI, which he should do.
