Mets’ Noah Syndergaard rebounds from sour start in return to mound

3

The clock officially has restarted for Noah Syndergaard after the former All-Star took a bit of a roller-coaster ride in his return to the mound Thursday night in Coney Island.

Syndergaard allowed a leadoff home run but thereafter completed the first inning as planned to start his latest minor-league rehabilitation stint for High-A Brooklyn against Aberdeen.

It marked his first game action since his initial rehab assignment from 2020 Tommy John elbow surgery was halted in May due to discomfort in his repaired elbow.

Syndergaard coughed up a home run to the first batter he faced, Lamar Sparks, on an 0-2 fastball that registered 95 mph. The righty also hit Doran Turchin with a pitch with one out, before striking out AJ Graffanino and retiring Maverick Handley on a first-pitch groundout to complete the inning at 16 pitches.
