Mets' Noah Syndergaard leaves Opening Day with blister on finger
Apr 06, 2017, 02:30
If recent history is any indication, Syndergaard could be in for another low-scoring duel Monday when he makes his first opening day start for the New York Mets against Julio Teheran and the Atlanta Braves.
Syndergaard, who previously dealt with the issue as a minor leaguer in the Toronto Blue Jays' system, shrugged it off as "just a little blister", and expressed a sense of mock joy when a postgame interview session shifted from the state of his right middle finger to the emotional high of pitching on Opening Day at Citi Field.
After Syndergaard exited the game, Hansel Robles got the Braves in order in his first appearance of the season in the seventh inning.
Syndergaard's next start will be pushed back to Sunday because of the blister. Gsellman-who pitched the ninth inning on Opening Day with the Mets enjoying a comfortable lead-was previously expected to be skipped the first time through the rotation since Tuesday's day off would have allowed the Mets to not use a fifth starter until April 12 in Philadelphia.
Syndergaard himself departed after six innings with a blister, as Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News writes. He isn't anxious about the blister, although it affects all his pitches. This season opened with a big day for one of their rising stars.
Syndergaard's stuff is so good and so overpowering he can pitch in strike zone without fear.

The turning point of the game came at this point when Asdrubal Cabrera hit a grounder to center. A review showed Tyler Flowers' tag on Wilmer Flores was late and the call was overturned.
Why did Syndergaard leave Opening Day early? They followed Julio Teheran, who did his Mets-killer thing yet again, holding NY hitless in 11 at-bats with men on base in six shutout innings. Duda said. "I just chose to be aggressive and it paid off".
Rene Rivera led off with a single against losing pitcher Ian Krol (0-1). He was 15-8 with a 3.43 ERA in 33 starts for the Mets last season.
Ty Kelly's ability to play left field allowed the Mets to carry just four true outfielders. Atlanta has three off days over the first two weeks of the season, after which time they could revisit the idea of adding an eighth reliever. It was his return to action after missing last September and the playoffs with a right elbow injury. He was in uniform for pregame introductions and was given a warm hand.
Teheran is 5-2 with a 1.49 ERA in his past 10 starts against the Mets, including 2-0 with a 0.90 ERA in four last season.
