The Mets received some unfortunate injury news on Tuesday afternoon, as it was announced that right-hander Noah Syndergaard would be undergoing Tommy John surgery for a torn UCL.
Syndergaard began feeling discomfort in his pitching elbow before the coronavirus pandemic halted spring training, and with surgery set for this Thursday, there's now a reasonable expectation that the Mets could be without Syndergaard until Memorial Day of 2021.
Some of Syndergaard's teammates and coaches voiced their support for the righty on social media after the news was announced. Here's a look at what other members of the Mets had to say:
Luis Rojas on Syndergaard: "We know Noah will attack his rehab with the same ferocity he shows on the mound. He's a hard worker which gives us the confidence he will be back as good as ever." #Mets- Joel Sherman (@Joelsherman1) March 24, 2020
