Mets announced that further x-rays conducted on Syndergaard were all negative with no broken bones.

The officially, the Mets are saying it’s a sprained A/C joint in his left, non-throwing shoulder.

He will refrain from throwing for five to seven days and as long as the pain subsides he can resume pitching in the Las Vegas rotation.

Sounds like he’ll be missing just two or three starts..

Top pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard left his start tonight in Las Vegas with an apparent injury to his collarbone and non-pitching shoulder.

After Syndergaard threw a wild pitch, he attempted to cover home plate to make a tag play and tumbled over the baserunner, falling hard to the ground.

After the play Syndergaard threw two warm-up pitches and grimaced in pain while grabbing at his left shoulder/collarbone area. He was removed from the game.

The Mets are initially calling it “left shoulder discomfort” and he’s on his way to get X-Rays.

Syndergaard was making his first start since being placed on the disabled list with a minor elbow strain. For the night, he lasted just 2/3 of an inning while allowing three runs.
