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

Luis Guillorme (hamstring)

Guillorme began a rehab assignment on Aug. 26 with Triple-A Syracuse, playing shortstop and leading off.

He played five innings at shortstop, going 1-for-3 with a single to lead off the game and a strikeout.

He landed on the IL on Aug. 1 after suffering a hamstring strain while running the bases on July 31.

Potential return date: Late-August

Noah Syndergaard (TJS recovery)

Syndergaard began his rehab assignment on Aug. 26 for High-A Brooklyn, throwing 16 pitches in one inning. He allowed a leadoff homer and hit a batter but topped out at 96 mph on his fastball.

After the game, Syndergaard spoke about his rehab process, potentially pitching out of the bullpen, being instructed not to throw sliders the remainder of this season, and his impending free agency.

Syndergaard threw live batting practice on Aug. 21 during what was his second time facing batters since ramping up his rehab.

When it comes to how long the rehab assignment is, that will depend on the role the Mets envision for Syndergaard upon his return.

Zack Scott mentioned on July 26 that Syndergaard could work out of the bullpen when he returned, and reiterated that point on Aug. 10.

Speaking on Aug. 19, Syndergaard said he was open to returning in a relief role, and he reiterated that on Aug. 26, saying he wants to help the Mets in whatever capacity they need.

Potential return date: Sept. 1

Jacob deGrom (elbow inflammation)

DeGrom resumed throwing on Aug. 25 in the outfield at Citi FIeld.

He was cleared to throw after a follow-up MRI earlier in the day. According to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, deGrom’s MRI looked ‘great.’

Luis Rojas said after deGrom threw on Aug. 25 that there is no timeline for a return and that his throwing progression will be a day-to-day thing.

DeGrom is eligible to return from the IL on Sept. 13.

He has not pitched since July 7.

Potential return date: Late-September

James McCann (lower back spasms)

The Mets placed McCann on the 10-day IL on Aug. 20, retroactive to Aug. 17. McCann has not played since Aug. 16.

Rojas said on Aug. 20 that McCann was going to go through tests to determine his availability for that night’s game, and he was placed on the IL shortly after.

With McCann and Tomas Nido both currently on the IL, the Mets have a healthy catching duo of Patrick Mazeika and Chance Sisco.

Potential return date: TBD

Tomas Nido (left thumb sprain)

Nido was placed on the 10-day IL on Aug. 16, retroactive to Aug. 15, with a left thumb sprain.

Acting GM Zack Scott said on Aug. 16 that “it’s not that serious” of an injury, as Nido jammed his thumb on a ball off his glove.

Over 51 games this season, he’s batting .231 with three home runs and 13 RBI over 134 at-bats. He’s struggled as of late, hitting .118 (2-for-17) with one RBI over his last seven games.

Potential return date: TBD

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

Jose Peraza (fractured middle finger)

Peraza took grounders at Citi Field on July 23 while still wearing a splint on his finger, which he is not close to being rid of.

Peraza was placed on the 10-day IL on July 20 with a fractured right middle finger. Over 52 games, he’s batting .205 with six home runs and 19 RBI.

Potential return date: TBD

Corey Oswalt (right knee inflammation)

The Mets announced on July 6 that Oswalt has been placed on the 10-day IL, retroactive to July 5, with right knee inflammation.

The 27-year old Oswalt started for the Mets on July 4, allowing three earned runs over 4.0 innings of work against the Yankees.

Potential return date: TBD

Robert Gsellman (lat)

The Mets transferred Gsellman to the 60-day IL on June 23, shortly after he was shut down from throwing for six weeks due to a lat injury.

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.

Potential return date: September

Joey Lucchesi (Tommy John surgery) and Dellin Betances (shoulder surgery) are out for the season. David Peterson (oblique/foot) is likely out for the season
