On Thursday, Syndergaard’s MRI revealed he had not structural damage to his elbow & that it’s nothing more than inflamation.
“I was very relieved,” manager Terry Collins said. “I know they’re tough guys. The one thing they don’t want to be accused of is every time there’s a little something wrong, coming in and saying, ‘Hey look, my arm [hurts].’ But that’s OK. That’s part of their job.”
“When it comes to elbows, I really don’t like to screw around with those,” Syndergaard said. “If it’s bothering you, I like to speak up and voice my opinion about it. It turned out to be nothing, and I couldn’t be more thankful for that.”
So Syndergaard will be in D.C. to take on the Nationals on Monday & that give the Mets a much better chance on gaining ground on their division leading rivals in the nations capital.
