Noah Syndergaard standing on field at spring training looking straight ahead close crop

Noah Syndergaard took another huge step in his recovery from March 2020 Tommy John surgery on Thursday, pitching one inning for the Brooklyn Cyclones in his first rehab outing since May.

Pitching with Francisco Alvarez behind the plate, Syndergaard touched 96 mph with his first couple of pitches but then allowed a leadoff home run to Aberdeen’s Lamar Sparks. Later in the inning, Syndergaard plunked a hitter when trying to come up and in with fastball. He ended the inning with a strikeout looking on a changeup and a groundout to second base.

In all, Syndergaard threw 16 pitches (12 strikes) while allowing one run on one hit with a strikeout and a hit-by-pitch. He topped out at 96 mph and sat around the 93-95 mph range.

Syndergaard had previously thrown a couple of live batting practice sessions, throwing all fastballs and changeups, with the most recent simulated inning coming on Aug. 21. He previously made two rehab appearances with the St. Lucie Mets in May before being shut down again due to elbow inflammation.
