Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard left after allowing three runs over six innings in Wednesday afternoon’s win against the Royals. Unfortunately, he felt discomfort in his right elbow and will have it examined by a doctor, MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo reports.

Could be nothing, could be something. Lots of consternation until a diagnosis is reached for the Mets, who have received their fair share of bad news lately. Outfielder Yoenis Cespedes left Wednesday’s game due to wrist discomfort. Bartolo Colon faced only one batter during Tuesday’s start because he took a comebacker off of his wrist. Zack Wheeler suffered a setback in his rehab from Tommy John surgery. David Wright is gone for the season due to a herniated disk in his neck, which needs surgery.

Syndergaard improved to 8-2 and now has a 2.08 ERA with a 110/12 K/BB ratio in 91 innings this season. It goes without saying that losing him for any amount of time would be a crushing blow to the defending National League champs.
