Mets starter Noah Syndergaard has been out since the end of May with a torn right lat muscle. He experienced some setbacks during his rehab, but the Mets were still hopeful he would be able to return before the end of the season.

With just two weeks remaining, The Record’s Matt Ehalt hears that the Mets are, for the first time, hesitant to have Syndergaard pitch before season’s end. They only want him to pitch if he is 100 percent and that still isn’t the case. Syndergaard experienced soreness last week and did not pitch in a simulated game as anticipated.

Syndergaard has made five starts this season, putting up a 3.29 ERA with a 32/2 K/BB ratio in 27 1/3 innings. He is one of a long, long list of Mets players to succumb to the injury bug this year.
