Mets expect Noah Syndergaard to return in June

Barring a significant change, the Mets will play the beginning of next season without Noah Syndergaard.

Speaking Wednesday on WFAN Radio, Mets president Sandy Alderson called June a “reasonable expectation” for Syndergaard’s return following Tommy John surgery, which he underwent in March. That would represent a 15-month recovery, which is in line with most modern estimates for starting pitchers.

“I think right now the reasonable expectation is sometime in June,” Alderson said. “That’s kind of what I’ve seen in our medical reports and our updates. Right now, I’d stick with that just because that’s what’s medically indicated, and we’ll see how it goes.”

Although Syndergaard has not publicly commented on the details of his rehab since having surgery, he has periodically posted video updates to his Instagram account. Through those, Syndergaard has revealed that he began throwing off flat ground in July, and off the slope of a mound last month. He has also been sending videos to pitching coach Jeremy Hefner and the Mets’ training staff, as well as text messages to manager Luis Rojas.
