Mets Noah Syndergaard To Have Tommy John Surgery For Torn UCL


Remember how Dr. Fauci recently told us all to forgo any elective surgeries in the wake of the coronavirus?

Yeah, well, the MLB sure doesn’t, as for the second time in as many weeks, another big-name pitcher has elected to get Tommy John surgery

Pencil New York Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard onto the list just under Boston’s Chris Sale, after the team announced yesterday that the man they call “Thor” has a thor throwing arm after they diagnosed a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow.

Dr. David Altchek will perform the surgery Thursday on the 27-year old Syndergaard—while using Lord knows how many surgical masks.

Syndergaard—like Sale—will be sidelined until April 2021 at the earliest and—like Sale—will miss as few games as possible by having it now.

Guessing the next Tommy John surgery will be announced next Wednesday.
