New York Mets’ pitcher Noah Syndergaard will miss his rehab start for Single-A Brooklyn due to a positive COVID-19 test, multiple reports say.

A source close to the 28-year-old spoke anonymously because the team has not announced it officially.

The Mets initially said Syndergaard was out because of a “non-baseball-related injury.”

Manager Luis Rojas said that Syndergaard is vaccinated, but the 39-year-old coach has not confirmed if his pitcher has the virus.

The person who communicated with Syndergaard said the pitcher will “try [his] best,” to resume his rehab.

Noah “Thor” Syndergaard was selected by the Blue Jays in the first round of the 2010 MLB Draft.

In December 2012, Syndergaard was traded to the New York Mets and made his debut in the 2015 season against the Chicago Cubs. The Mets lost 6-1 and he threw 103 pitches in that game.

Syndergaard suffered a torn UCL in his right elbow on March 24, 2020. He underwent Tommy John surgery two days later and was out for the remainder of the season.

The New York Mets will face the Miami Marlins at Citi Field on Tuesday.
