It may be ealry in the season, but so far 2017 hasn't been so kind to the New York Mets.

Now things just got worse.

Pitching ace Noah Syndergaard is heading to the disabled list with what is believed to be a partially torn lat muscle. The NY Daily News says Syndergaard was diagnosed with the injury Monday morning after an MRI.

There is currently no time table for his return. He could be out for months.

Syndergaard said he had shoulder pain last week as he was pulled from a Thursday start. he righty was scratched from a scheduled start Thursday. Syndergaard felt he didn't need an MRI and told team doctors that he was taking anti-inflammatories.

Syndergaard ended up starting Sunday only to leave in the second inning after suffering from more shoulder pain.

Injuries just have a bad habit of plaguing the Mets, with David Wright, Lucas Duda, and Yoenis Cespedes being some of the notable names on the DL so far this season.

Now, the 24 year-old Synergaard will be watching from the dugout for a substantial amount of time.

The Mets are currently last in the National League East with a 10-14 record.
