Syndergaard is expected to be sidelined 7-10 days, and may only miss one start.
James Wagner of the New York Times reports that it is possible Syndergaard picked up the disease while working at a kids camp during the All-Star Break.
Noah Syndergaard is going on the DL with hand, foot & mouth disease. Possible he picked it up working at a kids camp over the all-star break. Perhaps why he had diminished velocity and was tired on Friday. Assistant GM John Ricco said they expect it perhaps to be just one start.— James Wagner (@ByJamesWagner) July 22, 2018
According to MayoClinic, hand, foot and mouth disease is "a mild, contagious viral infection common in young children - is characterized by sores in the mouth and a rash on the hands and feet."
