Noah Syndergaard (Newsday)

We are almost on the road to Panic City. The Mets have scratched Noah Syndergaard from today’s start against the Braves. Manager Terry Collins stated that the team’s ace is dealing with a tired arm, and went further to describe the issue as bicep tendinitis. MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo was the first to break the news.

Matt Harvey will take Syndergaard’s spot in the rotation for today’s 1:10pm game against the Braves. The hope is that he will be ready in time for the weekend series against the Nationals. This will be the second time Harvey has pitched on an unscheduled day this season.

Speaking to the media this morning, Noah stated:

“I played catch yesterday, felt great playing catch. It just kind of stiffens up once it gets cold. I couldn’t really lift my arm above my shoulder at that point.”

Even though there is cause for concern, Noah Syndergaard is not that worried. The team has ordered up an MRI for him just to be safe. Collins stated to the media that the team can’t take any chances with him. “Thor” is 1-1 with a 1.73 ERA this season.

With a majority of the team on the disabled list and the Mets losing games, having Syndergaard go down is not something they need right now. The team will keep a close eye on him just in case.
