Jacob deGrom Noah Syndergaard walking at Citi Field July 2021

Here is the latest news and possible return dates for Mets players on the IL…

Jacob deGrom (elbow inflammation)

DeGrom threw 20 pitches off the mound at Fenway Park in Boston on Sept. 21, and said afterward that he has another mound session scheduled for later this week.

Asked if he still expects to return before the end of the regular season, which is on Oct. 3, deGrom said yes.

“If everything keeps going well,” he said. “I feel good.”

DeGrom has not pitched since July 7 due to an elbow injury.

On Sept. 9, after Mets president Sandy Alderson said deGrom had been dealing with a slight UCL tear that resolved itself, deGrom said his UCL was “perfectly fine.”

“I know what was said, but my ligament is perfectly fine,” he said. “I’ve been throwing. I wouldn’t be throwing if I had a compromised ligament. So that’s the plan to continue to throw and build up.”

Potential return date: Late-September

Noah Syndergaard (TJS recovery)

Syndergaard will start a rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse on Sept. 22.

Syndergaard threw a live BP session on Sept. 19, and Luis Rojas said it was a “very encouraging outing.”

“He went really good, 15-20 pitches, just really good, consistent with his fastball-changeup mix,” Rojas said. “I think the velo was about the same, somewhere in the mid-90s. Just really good. We’re still talking about what the next step will be, we don’t have anything finalized yet, so we should know in the next couple of days what that’s going to be.

“It was a very encouraging outing, let’s say, it was very encouraging to see Noah throwing the ball like he threw it today earlier.”

The expectation remains that Syndergaard will return in a bullpen role before the end of the season.

“We want him to go and face some competition and gradually work his way towards here. So it actually might be more than one. Let’s see how tomorrow goes for him and we’ll go from there. Let’s say two for a rehab assignment. …As of now we think two is going to be really good for him,” Rojas said.

Potential Return Date: Late-September

Robert Gsellman (lat)

Gsellman recently pitched for Low-A St. Lucie as he started a rehab assignment, per’s Anthony DiComo.

He allowed three earned runs and three hits while striking out one over 0.2 innings.

The right-hander has been on the 60-day IL since June 23 with a lat issue, but could be back in the bullpen later this year to finish the regular season.

Gsellman last pitched on June 19 against the Washington Nationals, when he allowed one run on three hits in 2.0 innings while serving as the opener.

Drew Smith (right shoulder inflammation)

The Mets announced on Aug. 14 that Smith was on the 10-day injured list with right shoulder inflammation.

The 27-year-old Smith, who last pitched on Aug. 13, has appeared in 31 games for the Mets this season, pitching to a 2.40 ERA with 41 strikeouts in 41.1 innings.

Potential return date: TBD
