The Cubs defeated the Mets 7-4 this evening at Wrigley Field to complete a three-game sweep. The Mets got another punch in the gut after the game.
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Mets prospect right-hander Noah Syndergaard left his start with Triple-A Las Vegas this evening after he injured his left (non-throwing) shoulder while attempting to cover home plate following a wild pitch. The Mets have termed the injury as “left shoulder discomfort.” He has been sent for X-rays.
Tonight was Syndergaard’s first start back after he was recently shut down with a flexor tendon strain in his right forearm. The hope was that he would be able to make his major league debut at some point this summer, but he isn’t having much luck on the health front right now. Hey, at least this new injury isn’t to his throwing arm.
