Noah Syndergaard injury update: Mets place pitcher (hamstring) on IL


Noah Syndergaard is dealing with an injury again.

The Mets starter left Saturday's game in the seventh inning with a hamstring strain, the team announced.

New York has placed him on the injured list, and he's set to undergo an MRI for further evaluation. In a corresponding move, second baseman Robinson Cano will be activated.

Newsday reports the injury seems significant because the Mets are calling it a strain rather than just tightness. 

He was seen grabbing at his right leg when he left the field with a trainer.

"It was on that one pitch," Mets manager Mickey Callaway said. "That deep in the game, if he feels anything, you get him out with a five-run lead."

When he left the game he had allowed four earned runs in six innings pitched while striking out five.

Syndergaard has dealt with several injuries in the past including ones to his lat and finger in recent years.

He was held to just seven starts in 2017 while dealing with injuries.
