Noah Syndergaard's up-and-down season took another strange turn Sunday. He struggled to get through five innings in his start against the Philadelphia Phillies, and he's blaming it on his catcher.

The New York Mets right-hander was apparently "livid" with the team about being forced to throw to catcher Wilson Ramos on Sunday, sources told Joel Sherman and Kevin Kernan of the New York Post.

Syndergaard has apparently expressed his displeasure with Ramos to the Mets' front office at several points this season but it came to a head this past weekend after learning Ramos would catch him again.
