New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard is scheduled to undergo Tommy John surgery on Thursday to repair the torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. The question is: How?
The procedure is supposed to be performed by Mets doctor David Altchek at the Hospital for Special Surgery in West Palm Beach, Fla. But on Friday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed Executive Order 20-72, which barred nonessential elective medical procedures across the state as local health officials continue to battle the growing coronavirus epidemic.
