Noah Syndergaard fires a pitch, unique view above mound

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

Noah Syndergaard (TJS recovery)

Syndergaard will throw live batting practice on Sept. 15 for the first time since having his rehab paused after testing positive for COVID-19.

Brandon Nimmo will be among the hitters who face Syndergaard.

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

Potential Return Date: Late-September

Brandon Nimmo (hamstring strain)

Nimmo continues to progress faster than expected and could return as early as the Mets’ series against the Philadelphia Phillies that begins on Sept. 17, manager Luis Rojas said on Sept. 14.

Nimmo has been running on the field as he works toward a return.

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

Potential return date: Mid-September

Jacob deGrom (elbow inflammation)

Luis Rojas said on Sept. 12 that deGrom is scheduled to get on the mound and throw again “maybe this week,” though he doesn’t have an exact date.

DeGrom 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.”

DeGrom recently advanced to 120 feet in his catch progression, per Rojas.

DeGrom is eligible to return from the IL on Sept. 13. He has not pitched since July 7.

Potential return date: Late-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 MLB.com’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
