Mets starter Noah Syndergaard has missed nearly two weeks of action with a strained ligament in his finger. He was in line to return Sunday after throwing a bullpen session earlier this week, but that won’t happen now, as his finger swelled up after the session. The Mets will give him a few more days of rest and put Seth Lugo in his place against the Yankees on Sunday.

Synderggard is 4-1 with a 3.06 ERA and a K/BB ratio of 76/13 in 64.2 innings on the year.
