Noah Synergaard and Yoenis Cespedes will not participate in the 2016 All-Star Game due to recent injury concerns, according to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com.
During the Mets' 3-1 loss to the Washington Nationals on Friday night, Syndergaard and Cespedes each exited the game early.
Syndergaard, who was in the running to be named the National League's starting pitcher, left after feeling what he described as a dead arm.
"I think it's just that time of the year, my first full season in the big leagues," Syndergaard said following the game. "I've thrown a lot of pitches. I've thrown a lot of innings so far. I just think it's a little bit of fatigue. There's no pain. There's no discomfort in my elbow regarding the spur. I felt like I could still go out there and pitch through that. It really boils down to a little shoulder fatigue."
Cespedes was scheduled to be the National League's starting left fielder after winning the fan vote. He suffered a right quad strain and is considered day-to-day.
"Hopefully it doesn't translate into me going on the 15-day DL," Cespedes said through his interpreter, noting he had a similar injury in spring training during 2015, which forced him to miss only five days.
Syndergaard will still attend the All-Star festitives while Cespedes will stay home to rest.
Marcell Ozuna will replace Cespedes as the starting left fielder. Jay Bruce and Drew Pomeranz were added to the National League roster.
