MLB: after ligament reconstruction, Noah Syndergaard launches for the first time in two years

NEW YORK – Noah Syndergaard is scheduled to launch Tuesday night for the New York Mets. This is the first time in two years that he will be seen on a Major Baseball mound following elbow ligament reconstruction.

The right-hander has had his name removed from the 60-day injured list and will start the second game of the doubles program between the Miami Marlins and the Mets.

Syndergaard can become a free agent at the end of the season. His return to the game, however, comes too late to help the Mets, who were eliminated last week, they who nevertheless led the East section of the National for three months.

The gunner should only be at the mound for a round or two. His rehabilitation was slowed this year by elbow pain, which forced him to be inactive at the end of his hand, and by COVID-19, which he contracted at the end of August, even though he had received his two doses of vaccine.

He made two AAA-level outings last week, pitching an inning each time. He didn’t allow a run on a hit with two strikeouts.

This will be the first appearance in an MLB game for Syndergaard since September 29, 2019. He tore a ligament in his right elbow in March 2020 and underwent surgery a few days later.

In order to make room for him in the formation of 40 players, receiver Chance Sisco has been designated for reassignment.
