Mets’ Noah Syndergaard Out With Torn UCL

New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard will be out until 2021 with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow. The right hander will undergo Tommy John surgery to fix the issue this week.

According to a statement released by New York on Tuesday, the procedure will be performed this coming Thursday.

“After experiencing discomfort in his elbow before Spring Training was suspended due to the pandemic, Noah and our health and performance department have been in constant contact,” Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said.

“Based on the persistence of his symptoms, Noah underwent a physical examination and MRI that revealed the ligament tear. A second opinion from Dr. Neal ElAttrache confirmed the diagnosis and the recommendation for surgery.

“Noah is an incredibly hard worker and a tremendous talent. While this is unfortunate, we have no doubt that Noah will be able to return to full strength and continue to be an integral part of our Championship pursuits in the future.”

The loss of their 27-year-old stud will be a huge loss for the Mets this coming season. It will be interesting to see how they ultimately fill the void left behind.
