The Mets have not been playing well lately and now their fortunes are taking an even worse turn: Noah Syndergaard has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained ligament in his finger.

The Mets say that Syndergaard was examined today due to soreness in his right index finger. A MRI and clinical examination confirmed a strained ligament in the finger. He’s on the DL retroactive to May 26. Synderggard is 4-1 with a 3.06 ERA and a K/BB ratio of 76/13 in 64.2 innings on the year.

The Mets have lost six of eight and, after a quick start to the year, find themselves in fourth place, four games out of first place and only one game above .500.
