Mets News and Notes: No Return imminent for Gee, EY has Hammy Setback, Johan has Torn Achilles Tendon, Syndergaard will miss week
NO Return imminent for Gee
Dillon Gee resumed throwing Wednesday on flat ground, but it still will be a while before he returns to the New York Mets rotation.
Gee had refrained from throwing since experiencing discomfort in his strained right lat muscle on May 25 while attempting to toss a baseball.
Because Gee will ultimately have spent about a full month away from a mound, the right-hander will probably need at least two minor league rehab appearances. And he's not even back on a mound yet.
EY has Hammy Setback
Eric Young Jr. will not be returning from the disabled list when he is eligible Tuesday.
Young felt tightness in his strained right hamstring running at the Mets' complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla., and has been backed off his rehab program.
He was placed on the DL on May 25.
Johan has Torn Achilles Tendon
Johan Santana's comeback bid with the Baltimore Orioles ended Friday when the two-time Cy Young Award winner tore his Achilles tendon.
The injury occurred in Florida while Santana was pitching in extended spring training. He was struck by a line drive before stumbling in pursuit of the ball.
An MRI revealed a torn tendon.
Syndergaard will miss week
Noah Syndergaard dodged a bullet in his plate collision after uncorking a wild pitch.
X-rays of the scapula were negative and Syndergaard has been diagnosed with a sprained A/C joint in his left, non-throwing shoulder. He will refrain from throwing for five days to a week, then may resume.
Syndergaard had just returned from a forearm strain when he suffered the injury in the first inning Thursday with Triple-A Las Vegas.
