New York Mets co-ace Noah Syndergaard was supposed to be back on the mound already. 


Syndergaard was originally placed on the 10-day disabled list back on May 29, and looked set to be back with the Mets last week. However, that obviously didn't happen. The 25-year-old hurler ended up getting sent for a second opinion on his injured finger, and results have just come in.

Syndergaard is dealing with a strained ligament in his right index finger, as the second opinion he received delivered the same exact diagnosis as the first. 


Unfortunately for Syndergaard and the Mets, there's no real timeline for a return at the moment. Syndergaard will need to rest until he is free of symptoms, and only then will he be able to commence with a throwing program. 

This is debilitating blow to the Mets. They just keep getting pummeled with injury after injury, as Syndergaard will be keeping Yoenis Cespedes, Jeurys Familia, AJ Ramos, and other key roster pieces company on the disabled list. 


When viewed in combination with the plethora of injuries that Mets players have already dealt with this season, it really raises some questions about what in the world the training staff is doing with New York's players. 


Someone in charge of conditioning should be getting fired for this barrage of injuries.
