FANTASY BASEBALL ISSUES: NOAH SYNDEGAARD AVOIDS DISASTER, WHY YOU NEED TO SELL HIGH PRONTO

It was the best sort of news for those owning stock in New York Mets fireballing right Noah Syndegaard on Wednesday as an MRI performed after his lackluster start against the Kansas City Royals prompted by a bout of elbow soreness revealed no structural issues.  Syndegaard will be put on some anti-inflammatories and could even make his next start on Monday.  While the Mets will no doubt be cautious and skip Syndegaard, the bottom line is that no Tommy John surgery is needed.....YET!  I say yet because like I have said going back to last winter, Syndegaard is your classic Tommy John case as a young hard-throwing (freakishly hard-throwing I might add) pitcher that covers about 80 percent of cases.  While Syndegaard made it through this scare, another will be right around the corner.  Also as it didn't get as much play as it should have, Syndegaard underwent similar testing last month for more elbow soreness.  See the patten?  As a result, those who own Syndegaard need to do one thing and one thing only:  SELL, SELL, SELL.  Not now of course as the injury news is too fresh to get fair value but as soon as he comes back and registers as typical Syndegaard dominant outing, get him off your roster before diaster arrives.  Also keep in mind that the Mets will keep an innings cap on Syndegaard this season and also fatigue will likely turn into a factor as well as the summer continues onward.  Get those trade requests ready.

    1. don't keep pitchers in dynasty leagues unless it is Clayton Kershaw. Too high risk of injury.
