Mets starter Noah Syndergaard is scheduled to return to the Mets’ rotation Friday against the Nationals.
All that he has to do between now and then is get through a bullpen session tomorrow. Which, normally, would not be a big deal but the last time he was a bullpen session away from returning his finger swelled up and he had to start all over again. This time things seem a bit better, though, as he looked good in a minor league rehab outing over the weekend at Low-A Brooklyn.
Syndergaard has been out since late May with a strained ligament in his right index finger. He’s 4-1 with a 3.06 ERA and a K/BB ratio of 76/13 in 64.2 innings on the year.
