In his return from the AAA DL after an MRI revealed no structural damage in his elbow, Mets top prospect Noah Snydergaard injured his left shoulder while covering home plate after a wild pitch.
Our resident GIF creator @MetsKevin11 has footage of the injury.
Although the reaction from most fans has been expect the worst and hope for the best, the Mets for the time being have classified the situation in this way.
Mets call Syndergaard’s injury "left shoulder discomfort” from plate collision. He’s getting X-Rays.

After getting a scare about his elbow, to have this kind of freak accident happen in his first start back is rough for Syndergaard.
Hopefully the injury is not serious and he can resume pitching as soon as possible
