Noah Syndergaard’s rehab start ends quickly in potential Mets disaster

Noah Syndergaard's road back from Tommy John surgery has hit a snag.

Noah Syndergaard’s road back from Tommy John surgery has hit a snag.

The Mets right-hander was removed from his rehab start Tuesday after an inning with “right elbow soreness,” the team said.

Syndergaard was making the second start of his rehab assignment with Low-A St. Lucie, 14 months removed from the elbow surgery to repair a torn UCL. The Mets had targeted a mid-June return to the big leagues for Syndergaard, but that could be in jeopardy after Tuesday’s abbreviated start.

In his first rehab start last Wednesday, Syndergaard threw four shutout innings with five strikeouts on 44 pitches. Tuesday, he was scheduled to throw another four innings, but threw just 16 pitches in his only inning, walking one and striking out one.
