With the possibility of fighting for the wild card of the National League very uphill in this final stretch of the major league regular season, the New York Mets hope to take advantage of the remainder of the season of the best baseball in the world to be able to have back to one of the most important arms of the team.
With the injured Jacob deGrom also hoping to return to action soon, the Metropolitan Ninth has Noah Syndergaard in the final stretch of his recovery after missing all of last season following Tommy John surgery in 2019. The right-hander has not pitched in the MLB since September 29 of that year.
The 29-year-old right-handed pitcher recently performed a pitching practice in which he completed between 15 and 20 pitches that left a good feeling for the manager of the Big Apple, Luis Rojas, who assured that Syndergaard will still have to make a session more to define his possible return.
In a new role
Before the injury to his right arm, Noah Syndergaard was one of the important pieces of the New York Mets rotation, something that will change in 2021 when he returns after almost two years out of action. The helmsman of the metropolitan ninth, Luis Rojas, revealed that he has other plans for the right.
According to a report published in the New York Post, the pitcher, who has experienced several delays during his recovery, including a positive for COVID-19 last month, is expected to be used as a long reliever by the helmsman of the ninth of the Great Manzana. (Bolavip)
