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

Noah Syndergaard (TJS recovery)

Syndergaard, who recently tested positive for COVID-19, was throwing indoors on Sept. 1.

In a video Syndergaard posted to Instagram, he was throwing baseballs against a wall from a decent distance in what appeared to be his apartment.

Syndergaard’s scheduled rehab start for the Brooklyn Cyclones on Aug. 29 did not happen because he tested positive for COVID-19, per multiple reports.

Syndergaard is vaccinated.

He began his rehab assignment on Aug. 26 for High-A Brooklyn, throwing 16 pitches in one inning. He topped out at 96 mph with his fastball.

Potential Return Date: TBD

Jacob deGrom (elbow inflammation)

DeGrom was out throwing again at Citi Field on Aug. 31 as he continued his progression.

He resumed throwing on Aug. 25 after being cleared to throw after a follow-up MRI earlier in the day. DeGrom’s MRI looked “great,” per MLB Network’s Jon Heyman

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, but he is not expected to be back that quickly.

He has not pitched since July 7.

Potential return date: Late-September

Tomas Nido (thumb)

Nido was placed back on the 10-day IL on Aug. 31 with the same thumb injury that landed him on the IL earlier in August.

In the only game he played after his initial activation from the IL, Nido went 1-for-2 on Aug. 27 but appeared to be in pain after one of his at-bats.

Potential return date: TBD

James McCann (lower back spasms)

Speaking before the game on Aug. 28, McCann said his rehab is “right on track” but there’s no definitive date marked for his return.

“We have targets but there are certain things I have to accomplish,” he said. “The way I view it, as soon as I’m able to get out here and help, that’s what I’m gonna do.”

The catcher added that on Aug. 27 he hit in a field setting for the second time and caught a second bullpen on Aug. 28.

McCann has been on the 10-day IL on Aug. 20, retroactive to Aug. 17.

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

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
