Noah Syndergaard has cryptic take on his Mets injury setback

Mets starter Noah Syndergaard sent out a cryptic tweet Friday regarding his injury situation.

Noah Syndergaard certainly isn’t doing everything he can to ease Mets fans’ concerns about his return from Tommy John surgery.

The Mets right hander’s first comments since being shut down for six weeks with right elbow inflammation were certainly a bit cryptic. Syndergaard, in a Twitter post on Friday, wrote “I’m A-OK everyone. See you soon. #LFGM.” Along with that was a GIF of Leslie Nielsen from the movie “The Naked Gun” saying, “Nothing to see here. Please disperse” as a blown-up building burns behind him.

Though this is likely the 28-year-old Syndergaard — who is known for his levity on Twitter — having some fun, he is certainly leaving some things open to interpretation.

The Mets’ history, both current and past, with injuries are no laughing matter. The Mets already have stars such as Pete Alonso, Michael Conforto and Jeff McNeil, and pitchers Carlos Carrasco and Seth Lugo still on the injured list.

Syndergaard was pulled from his rehab start for Single-A St. Lucie on Tuesday and will have to build up from scratch once he is cleared to throw again. It means the Mets likely won’t see him back until mid-August or later.
