NEW YORK (AP) Star Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard was scratched from his start Thursday against the Atlanta Braves because of what manager Terry Colins said was minor discomfort in his biceps.

Matt Harvey was moved up a day and took the mound on five days' rest - his scheduled turn before Tuesday's rainout. Harvey also pitched on short notice last Friday in place of Jacob deGrom, who missed a start with a stiff neck.

Collins said Syndergaard was expected to be available against Washington this weekend and likely will not go on the disabled list. Collins cautioned any decision will be made after Syndergaard was evaluated by doctors.
