Noah Syndergaard had been progressing well in his comeback from Tommy John surgery, and his early exit from Tuesday’s rehab game came as a surprise to the Mets.

Planning to throw at least four innings for St. Lucie, Syndergaard left after just one. The Mets called his exit “precautionary” and termed the issue “right elbow soreness.”

According to organizational sources, Syndergaard had originally been expected to make the Tuesday start in Rochester for Triple-A Syracuse. Manager Luis Rojas had even indicated this publicly over the weekend.

Then the appearance was relocated to St. Lucie. But by all accounts, Syndergaard was feeling good and ready to progress. He simply didn’t want to leave Florida for the start, so the team allowed him to stay there.

Now dealing with an elbow issue, Syndergaard’s next steps are unclear.
