[June 24, 2016]  June 23 (The Sports Xchange) - Right-hander Noah Syndergaard and outfielder Yoenis Cespedes are likely to miss only a matter of days after injury scares occurred Wednesday as the New York Mets completed a two-game sweep of the Kansas City Royals.

Syndergaard's availability for his next scheduled start Monday is in doubt but a clean MRI exam on his right elbow means he won't land on the disabled list.

Cespedes has only a mild sprain of his left wrist and received a cortisone shot. The Mets are likely to hold him out into the weekend.
