The New York Mets have scheduled right-handed starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard to throw one inning of work against the arch rival Washington Nationals on Saturday, according to the National League East ball club. With “Thor” slated to toss just one inning, fellow right-hander Matt Harvey will take over in the second inning. Syndergaard has been out since April 30 due to a torn lat muscle in his right arm. Prior to being sidelined, the 25-year-old started five games and went 1-2 with a 3.29 ERA, allowing 28 hits and handing out just two walks in 27.1 innings of work. He also struck out 32 opposing batters. Syndergaard was originally selected by the Toronto Blue Jays in the first round (38th pick overall) of the 2010 MLB June Amateur Draft. The Blue Jays then traded the man known as “Thor” to the Mets in a deal that landed right-handed starting pitcher R.A. Dickey in Toronto in December 2012.
