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

Noah Syndergaard (TJS recovery)

Syndergaard is expected to continue throwing against live batters this weekend, manager Luis Rojas said Friday.

“We’re debating if it’s going to be here or at a rehab assignment,” he added.

Syndergaard threw live batting practice Sept. 15 at Citi Field for the first time since having his rehab paused after testing positive for COVID-19.

Brandon Nimmo faced Syndergaard during the session.

“Noah, he looked good, he looked good,” Nimmo told reporters on the field.

The expectation remains that Syndergaard will return in a bullpen role this season.

Potential Return Date: Late-September

Jacob deGrom (elbow inflammation)

DeGrom pitched off the slope for the first time “a couple days ago,” according to Rojas.

He will have a light catch Sept. 17 before another side sometime later this week.

DeGrom threw a 10-pitch, light bullpen session Sept. 14, according to, marking the first time he threw off a mound since initially being shut down in July.

DeGrom is now eligible to return from the IL, but the Mets are expected to be cautious. He has not pitched since July 7.

The two-time Cy Young Award winner briefly met with reporters in Miami on Sept. 9, saying that his right UCL is “perfectly fine.”

“I know what we 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

Brandon Nimmo (hamstring strain)

Rojas said Sept. 17 that Nimmo will be in the lineup for their game with the Phillies later that evening.

He has been out since injuring his hamstring on Sept. 4 against the Washington Nationals.

Potential return date: Mid-September

Jordan Yamamoto (shoulder)

Yamamoto had his rehab transferred to Syracuse on Sept. 11. As Syracuse’s starting pitcher, Yamamoto went three innings and yielded one hit while striking out six on 45 pitches (32 strikes).

Yamamoto has been on the 60-day IL since late May with a sore shoulder. He resumed mound work in mid-July.

Sept. 2 with Low-A Port St. Lucie, Yamamoto logged four innings, allowing one run on three hits while striking out five and walking zero.

Potential Return Date: Mid-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

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
