Mets place Syndergaard on 10-day DL with partial tear of lat
ATLANTA (AP) The New York Mets have placed ace right-hander Noah Syndergaard on the 10-day disabled list after a MRI revealed a partial tear of his right lat muscle.
The Mets say there is no timetable for Syndergaard's return.
Syndergaard left his start Sunday against Washington in pain. He grimaced after throwing a pitch and grabbed his side under his right arm.
The development came only a couple days after he said he felt fine and refused a MRI.
The Mets, who open a four-game series at Atlanta on Monday night, did not immediately announce a corresponding roster move. The team said General Manager Sandy Alderson will discuss the situation before the game.
