New York Mets’ ace Noah Syndergaard reached for his lat after his final pitch yesterday, showing a partial tear that led to the DL stint.

Noah Syndergaard has officially been placed on the 10-day disabled list by the New York Mets after an MRI revealed that the power-righty has a partial tear in his right lat muscle.

There is currently no timetable for Thor’s return, leading some to believe he may be out for some time.

Syndergaard received a a few extra days off last week after it was revealed the ace was having trouble with biceps tendinitis.

This has led some to believe that the lat tear is a case of compensation injury, meaning his back muscle had to work harder to support his temporarily weak right bicep, causing the stress injury in the process.

The bigger issue that has arisen is that Syndergaard refused an MRI during that time off, claiming that there was no issue at all.

Team officials allowed the defiant move by Syndy to stand, causing somewhat of a backlash by Mets management and fans, especially with today’s DL decision becoming official.

An agitated Terry Collins and surprisingly calm Sandy Alderson spoke about Syndergaard immediately following the Mets’ harsh 23-5 loss to the NL East leading Washington Nationals yesterday, with both expressing the sentiment that they wish this injury had been taken care of differently.
