Syndergaard had to leave the game after six innings because of discomfort in in his right elbow. “I didn’t really feel comfortable the whole game,” Syndergaard said.

When "asked why he may be having the elbow flare-ups, Syndergaard said: 'I guess you could say the workload. I’ve thrown quite a bit more pitches than I did last year at this time.'" Hopefully, Terry Collins has heard what Syndergaard said. Mr. Collins, think careers, not complete games.
