Shortly after announcing a three-day suspension for Matt Harvey on Sunday, the flailing New York Mets made another tough roster move, transferring ailing right-hander Noah Syndergaard - sidelined with a torn lat - to the 60-day disabled list to create a spot on the 40-man roster for left-hander Adam Wilk.

Earlier this week, Syndergaard received a "positive" second opinion from Dr. Neal ElAttrache after leaving his start last Sunday in the second inning with a partially torn right lat muscle, but Mets general manager Sandy Alderson conceded Saturday "it's going to take a while" for the 24-year-old - shut down from throwing for six weeks - to get back on the mound.

"Obviously, if he's not going to throw for six weeks, there is going to be a period of time after that to ramp him back up," Alderson told MLB.com's Anthony DiComo. "We can all speculate on how long that will take. But I think, realistically, it's going to take a while."

Before injuring his lat last weekend, Syndergaard famously refused to have an MRI despite being scratched with a "tired arm" a few days earlier.

"I don't regret (making the start) at all," Syndergaard said. "I threw a bullpen (session) two days prior and felt great, ready to go. Something weird just happened."
