Former Lansing Lugnuts and current New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard underwent Tommy John surgery Thursday to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. He is expected to return sometime during the 2021 season.

In the Midwest League, Syndergaard went 8-5 with a 2.60 ERA, 122 strikeouts and 31 walks in 103.2 innings (27 games/19 starts) for the 2012 Lugnuts, and struck out nine batters in nine innings in two starts for Lansing in late 2011.
