Though the Mets will watch Syndergaard carefully for the rest of this year, they are confident the tired arm that knocked him out of a July 8 start is now a tired issue. Still, Syndergaard will have an extra day of rest before facing the Cardinals.

Career stats

Garcia has had an up-and-down season but is coming off an outing in which he limited the Padres to one run over 5 2/3 innings. He is looking to improve on the inefficiency, which has kept him from going deeper into games.
