Noah Syndergaard has been activated from the IL and will pitch for the Mets on Tuesday for the first time since having Tommy John surgery in 2019.

Syndergaard will start Game 2 of the Mets’ doubleheader against the Miami Marlins at Citi Field.

While Syndergaard was rehabbing, he was being prepared to return in a relief role, and neither of his recent rehab outings with Triple-A Syracuse exceeded 1.0 inning.

So the expectation should be that Syndergaard’s outing on Tuesday will be brief.

Earlier in the rehab process, shortly after Syndergaard began ramping back up after his initial rehab stint ended due to an elbow issue, he said that he would not be throwing sliders or curveballs this season.

Syndergaard said the decision to not throw sliders or curves came after consultation with doctors.

So Syndergaard will be a fastball/changeup pitcher upon his return, and it’s that arsenal the Mets will have to take into account when deciding how to proceed with Syndergaard when he hits free agency after the season.

The Mets will have the ability to extend a one-year qualifying offer to Syndergaard if they so choose.
