Syndergaard: Weight lifted from lat muscle, not shoulders

NEW YORK (AP) Noah Syndergaard says the weight has not been lifted from his shoulders, just his lat muscle.

The New York Mets ace tore the latissimus dorsi behind his right arm on April 30 after bulking up during the previous winter. He altered his workouts this offseason under the supervision of Eric Cressey, a performance coach who assisted Corey Kluber and Max Scherzer, and Shane Rye, co-founder of Cressey's company.

"I'm still lifting heavy but in a more smart way," Syndergaard said Thursday, dressed as an elf at the Mets' annual holiday party for children. "Last year was not the necessarily the most smart thing I was supposed to be doing in terms of exercises and choice. ... I did a lot of pull-ups, and that's primarily a lat exercise, and this year I haven't done one pull-up yet. So it's different. It's still taxing workouts, but my body never felt better."
