Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard could pitch out of the bullpen against the White Sox on Tuesday, manager Terry Collins said Sunday.

Syndergaard made just 34 pitches on Saturday night before he was ejected for throwing behind Dodgers second baseman Chase Utley, and is not scheduled to pitch again until Friday in Miami.

Earlier on Sunday, Syndergaard tweeted that he was "fresh" and available to throw out of the bullpen. "Just saying," he added.

Syndergaard has pitched out of the bullpen once in his two-year career, throwing a scoreless seventh inning against the Dodgers in Game 5 of the 2015 National League Division Series.

According to ESPN's Adam Rubin, the league will not discipline Syndergaard any further for his pitch. Collins also said that he has not heard from the league yet in regard to Syndergaard's pitch.

The Mets and Dodgers will play the rubber game of their weekend series at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday.
