New York Mets ace Noah Syndergaard exited Wednesday's start after six innings with an elbow flare-up, manager Terry Collins told reporters.
There is no structrual damage in his elbow, according to MLB.com's Anthony DiComo.
He posted the following picture on Instagram with the caption, “Happy elbows for me and mini Thor.”
Syndergaard, 23, entered his latest start with a 7–2 record and 1.91 ERA that includes 106 strikeouts in 85 innings. He left his start after giving up three runs in six innings to Kansas City before heading to see a doctor.
Collins informed reporters about the injury and immediately left the press conference before questions.
The Mets defeated the Royals 4–3 to improve to 38–32 on the year.
