Noah Syndergaard pitched into the seventh inning on Saturday, but after allowing a leadoff single to Yairo Munoz and falling behind Jose Martinez 2-0, Syndergaard reached down and started grabbing the back of his right leg.
Mickey Callaway and the training staff quickly came out the mound, and Syndergaard was immediately pulled. The Mets later announced the injury as a right hamstring strain.
After the game, Callaway said he wasn't sure if Syndargaard was going to miss a start.
"We're gonna reevaluate in the morning and go from there," Callaway said. "It was on that one pitch."
Syndergaard gave the Mets 6-plus innings, allowing five runs, four of which were earned. He was off to a shaky start, allowing a solo home run to Dexter Fowler in the top of the first inning, but we settled in well enough, striking out five while walking two.
Robert Gsellman came in to relieve Syndergaard, allowing both inherited runners to score, cutting the Mets' lead to 8-6.
