SAN FRANCISCO -- Noah Syndergaard dodged a bullet in his plate collision after uncorking a wild pitch.

X-rays of the scapula were negative and Syndergaard has been diagnosed with a sprained A/C joint in his left, non-throwing shoulder. He will refrain from throwing for five days to a week, then may resume.

Syndergaard had just returned from a forearm strain when he suffered the injury in the first inning Thursday with Triple-A Las Vegas.
