Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard (elbow) threw 15-20 pitches in live batting practice on Saturday.
The next step is either a minor league rehab assignment or a major league appearance. "Thor" is hoping to make a few bullpen appearances over the final two weeks of the 2021 season. He's an impending free agent.
Noah Syndergaard threw off the mound on Monday and will face batters in a couple of days.
Syndergaard likely won't have any fantasy value for the rest of the 2021 season. He does appear to have a good chance at pitching for the Mets before the regular season ends.
Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard has tested positive for COVID-19. He has been scratched from his scheduled rehab outing at High-A Brooklyn.
Syndergaard, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, allowed one run through one inning of work during his last rehab outing in Brooklyn. The former All-Star last pitched in 2019, when he went 10-8 with a 4.28 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and .256 OBA.
Mets' SP Noah Syndergaard will be limited to one inning and around 20 pitches in his rehab start in Class-A Brooklyn on Thursday.
Syndergaard will begin his road to returning to the Mets' big league roster on Thursday with a short appearance in Class-A Brooklyn. However, because Syndergaard will likely take on a bullpen role upon his return, it shouldn't take too long for him to make his way through the minors. Because Thor has seen so little live game action this season, it's unlikely that he will provide much fantasy value for fantasy managers this season.
New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A on Thursday.
Syndergaard will make a few appearances in the minors and could return to the big leagues barring a setback. Thor is expected to come out of the bullpen when he’s reinstated from the injured list. Fantasy managers in deep-league formats or with an IL spot can continue to stash Syndergaard for now but temper expectations as the Mets right-hander hasn't pitched in the majors since 2019.
