As the New York Mets continue to deal with a barrage of injuries, the team received some promising news with the announcement Noah Syndergaard will start Sunday's game against the Washington Nationals.

Thor missed his previous start with what was initially described as a "tired arm" but was later diagnosed as biceps tendinitis. Typically, if a high-profile starter has any sort of injury concern with their arm, they'll undergo an MRI. Syndergaard was scheduled for the exam Friday, according to ESPN, but skipped it, threw a bullpen session, and declared he was ready to go.

"I'm pretty in tune with my body," Syndergaard said Saturday, according to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com. "That's exactly why I refused to take the MRI. I knew there was nothing happening in there."

Syndergaard's reaction was a surprise to general manager Sandy Alderson, who admitted to reporters, "I can't strap him down and throw him in the tube."

Alderson is instead left hoping his 24-year-old ace is right.
