If you are pitcher in Major League Baseball right now, or anyone for that matter, and you have an sort of injury that requires surgery, now is the time to do so. Chris Sale, it was announced earlier this month, will be having surgery and will miss the season, whatever is able to be played. And now we can add Noah Syndergaard’s name to that list as well.
The New York Mets’ ‘Thor’ will be having Tommy John surgery to repair an elbow that was irritated during spring training. The 27 year-old is one of the game’s hardest throwers, especially considering he is a starter, so the fact that he would need the surgery is no big shock at all. It is now looking like he will not pitch competitively again until April of next year, but the Mets will be hoping that they will have him at full tilt for a while when he does toe the rubber once more.
