With the MLB on hold, it seems that the season for Noah Syndergaard has finished before it can get started. Jeff Passan tweeted out of Tuesday that the New York Mets starter will be out until at least 2021, as he requires Tommy John surgery for a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.
Tommy John surgery generally sees a player out for at least a year, with some cases going as far as 18 months before being allowed onto the mound.
The 27-year-old has a 47-30 record in his 119 career games so far, with a 10-8 record during the 2019 regular season. Syndergaard signed a one year deal worth just under $10million a couple of months ago. The former first round pick will be a free agent at the end of the 2020 season, pending another deal with the Mets organization.
