Noah Syndergaard is still waiting to throw his first fastball in-game action since 2019, but the rehabbing Mets’ hurler offered some chin music to MLB and ESPN over a recent time change for Sunday’s game against the Dodgers.
“Hey @MLB @ESPN whose dumb f–king idea was it to change tomorrow’s game to a night game when we’re traveling to the west coast after,” Syndergaard wrote Saturday on his Instagram story. “Won’t get in until Monday morning. Take on the 1st place Giants later that evening. Brilliant.”
Sunday’s game against the Dodgers at Citi Field was switched in late July from a day game to a nationally televised 7:08 p.m. start. The Mets will begin a seven-game western trip to San Francisco and Los Angeles with a 9:45 p.m (ET) game Monday against the NL West-leading Giants.
Syndergaard, who the Mets are hoping will return in September from 2020 Tommy John surgery on his right elbow, noted that the Dodgers also are slated to fly cross-country after the game to face the Pirates at home Monday night.
“Wow. The Dodgers don’t even get an off-day Monday,” Syndergaard wrote. “This is cruel.”
