New York Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard will return from the 60-day disabled list Saturday after being sidelined since late April with a lat injury.
Per MLB.com's Anthony DiComo, Syndergaard will start Saturday against the Washington Nationals and pitch one inning before giving way to Matt Harvey in the second inning.
Syndergaard was one of the best starters in baseball last season. He posted a 2.60 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 31 appearances, including one relief appearance, with 218 strikeouts in 183.2 innings. He accumulated a 3.29 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in five starts before the injury this season
Matt Harvey will remain in the Mets' rotation. Mets manager Terry Collins hinted late Monday that the club might consider shutting Harvey down early or moving him into a mop-up role, but it's not going to happen. [...]

Syndergaard (lat) will start Saturday's game against the Nationals, but then replaced by Matt Harvey in the second inning, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
This will be Syndergaard's first major-league appearance since April 30, although it'll be a brief outing. The right-hander was able to throw 39 pitches during a simulated game Monday, but will surely be in store for far less during Saturday's contest. Looking ahead, it hasn't been determined whether he will take the mound again, or in what capacity, over the final week of the 2017 season, although Syndergaard did state that he would like to make two appearances before the end of the year. There will likely be a definitive plan set up early next week, especially once the club is able to determine his status following Saturday's game.
