It’s a new season, with a new coaching staff, new trainers, and yet we still have the same old injury-plagued Mets. Noah Syndergaard is the latest player to find himself on the shelf.
Noah Syndergaard was examined today at The Hospital for Special Surgery for soreness in his right index finger. A MRI and clinical examination confirmed a strained ligament in the finger. Syndergaard will be placed on the 10-Day Disabled List, retroactive to May 26.— New York Mets (@Mets) May 29, 2018
Did the Mets forget to take away Ray Ramirez’s voodoo doll on the way out? I mean, come on already. This team just can’t catch a break.
David Wright aside, the Mets have now placed the following players on the disabled list at some point this season:
Injuries are bound to happen. They will always be part of the game. They just shouldn’t be continuously THIS much a part of the game for the Mets.
For years we pinned it all on the training staff as the leading cause. Well, that scapegoat is gone now. Maybe it’s a higher power and god does indeed hate the Mets after all.
Whatever the case may be, the Mets need Syndergaard back on the mound and they need it fast. Without the 1-2 combination of deGrom and Syndergaard things could fall completely off the rails in the same manner that it did just last season.
Get well soon, Noah.
If you're hitting the final home game on Thursday at Citi Field, swing by the Marina Lot to see some friends, maybe meet some new ones, and responsibly wash down your sorrows before heading inside.
