The New York Mets can breath a sigh of relief Thursday. Flamethrowing pitcher Noah Syndergaard was cleared to start Monday against the Washington Nationals after leaving his start against the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday early with some discomfort in his right elbow, according to’s Anthony DiComo. An MRI on Syndergaard’s elbow came back clean and he was prescribed some anti-inflammatory medication.

Through 15 games this season, Syndergaard is 8-2 with 110 strikeouts and a 2.08 ERA. He’s clearly become the Mets’ best pitcher this year and they definitely need him to take down the Nationals for the National League East division lead and get back to the playoffs.
