The New York Mets’ laundry list of injured players just got a bit bigger.

The New York Daily News reported Monday that Noah Syndergaard was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a “partially torn” right lat muscle — an injury that might have been prevented if Syndergaard went for an MRI before his disastrous start Sunday.

It is unclear when the hard-throwing right hander will be back on the mound. One doctor told the Daily News that he could return quicker if he receives a platelet-rich plasma injection, which have helped athletes in the past.

Steven Matz suffered a similar injury last July and returned to pitch in the beginning of April.
