New York Mets DFS Notes
Noah Syndergaard (elbow) is expected to begin a rehab assignment on Thursday with High-A Brooklyn. The 28-year-old has been working himself back from Tommy John surgery this season before experiencing a setback in late May that shut his progress down for six weeks. Syndergaard is expected to throw one inning for the High-A Cyclones to start things off but will likely need several rehab appearances before returning to a likely bullpen role with the Mets.
