The Mets made it official when they activated RHP Noah Syndergaard off the IL ahead of his start Sunday against the Braves. The corresponding move, then, was Carlos Gomez getting designated for assignment.
Syndergaard has been on the IL since June 16 with a strained right hamstring that he injured in his last start. He only needed one rehab start with Class-a Brooklyn to be ready for tonight.
On Tuesday, "Thor" went five innings, allowing trhee runs on five hits (one homer) while striking out nine and walking one as well. So far this season, the righty owns a 4.55 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP over 15 starts for the Mets.
As for Gomez, his time with the Mets started off on a hot note with his go-ahead three-run homer back on May 23 against the Nationals. But the heroics ended, and Gomez' play began to falter.
Overall, he slashed .198/.278/.337 with three homers and 10 RBI over 34 games with New York. If no team picks him up, the Mets will be able to add him back into their system at Triple-A.
