     Syndergaard to undergo Tommy John surgery

    NEW YORK NY - SEPTEMBER 08 Noah Syndergaard 34 of the New York Mets in action against the Philadelphia Phillies during a game at Citi Field on September 8 2019 in New York City

    New York Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard will undergo Tommy John surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his throwing elbow, the team announced Tuesday.

    The procedure will be performed on Thursday by Dr. David Altchek at New York's Hospital for Special Surgery.

    Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said in a statement that Syndergaard first experienced discomfort in his elbow before Major League Baseball suspended spring training. After an MRI found the tear and a second opinion from Dr. Neal ElAttrache confirmed the diagnosis, it was decided to proceed with the surgery.

    The procedure will force Syndergaard to miss the entire 2020 season regardless of when it begins. He won't return until April 2021 at the earliest, and it's possible that he could be sidelined into next summer.

    His absence will leave a significant hole in the Mets' rotation. New York added veterans Rick Porcello and Michael Wacha in free agency this winter, and both of them are now likely to be guaranteed starting jobs when the season begins. The team will also get a full campaign from right-hander Marcus Stroman, who was acquired in a trade last July.

    The 27-year-old Syndergaard made 32 starts for the Mets in 2019, posting a 4.28 ERA and a 3.60 FIP with 202 strikeouts. He has one more year of arbitration eligibility remaining.

    Syndergaard is the latest star pitcher to require Tommy John surgery this spring, joining Boston Red Sox ace Chris Sale and New York Yankees right-hander Luis Severino.

    This is a very Mets thing to happen to them.

    There were a group of guys that made a whole show out of doing this.  It took them a couple hundred takes sometimes but they got the shot and they made money with it.

    I'm glad we didn't do any drafting yet.  I'd be pissed if I had Judge or Syndegaurd.

    I don't think this season gets kicked off until July or August. 

    Even in "normal" times, the baseball season should be shortened by two months. Opening day in late April with the World Series wrapping up in early October.
    The less you know, the more you believe.

    We certainly don't look like we're going to be ready to play games at Yankee Stadium, Safeco or Dodger Stadium in mid May like they are currently targeting/hoping. Wouldn't be shocked to see the entire season scrapped. Maybe NFL can play in the fall, but doubt we see much before then.

    They won't scrap the season.  They'll play a half of one.

    That Dodger trade for Mookie Betts doesn't look quite so one sided if he never suits up for them.

    Boras: MLB owners capping prospect bonuses is 'unconscionable'
    5h ago

    OAKLAND CA - APRIL 2 Agent Scott Boras sits in the stands during the game between the Oakland Athletics and the Boston Red Sox at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on April 2 2019 in Oakland California The Athletics defeated the Red Sox 1-0

    Super-agent Scott Boras believes the part of the new agreement between Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association that caps spending on drafted players was an egregious concession by the union.

    "It's unconscionable the owners in this climate would reduce the collectively bargained money given to drafted players in the top rounds," Boras told Ken Rosenthal and Evan Drellich of The Athletic.

    Under the new agreement, slotted draft bonuses will be capped for the next two seasons at the 2019 rate. Those slotted draft bonuses would typically increase by 3% each year.

    MLB has the right to shorten the draft from its typical 40 rounds to five rounds and every player that goes undrafted will have their bonus capped at $20,000 before it starts counting against the team's bonus pool, as opposed to the typical $125,000 soft cap.

    Bonuses will also be deferred this season. Prospects will earn $100,000 this year and have the remainder of their bonus split equally between two lump-sum payments in 2021 and 2022.

    "I don't mind them reducing the rounds," Boras continued. "That's not the issue. It's reducing the payments to those players. To cut their bonuses in this climate and use a pandemic situation in our country as a means to do that, I really find it unconscionable.

    "The best players do not deserve to have their bonuses cut. That’s who you should invest in."

    Boras' clients now include many of the top earners in baseball like Gerrit Cole and Bryce Harper, but he got his start by representing players entering the draft. He has routinely advocated for lifting the bonuses and salaries of prospects.

    When drafted first overall in 2011, Cole's $8-million signing bonus set an MLB record that stood for eight years until this past draft, when Adley Rutschman received an $8.1-million bonus from the Baltimore Orioles.
