An injured elbow isn't the only thing bothering Noah Syndergaard these days.

The New York Mets ace is facing a lawsuit from his landlord for failing to pay $27,000 per month in rent for his Manhattan penthouse, according to Priscilla DeGregory of the New York Post.

Papers filed in a Manhattan court Friday allege Syndergaard inked an eight-month lease on the unit - which had a March 20 move-in date - in February but then failed to pay any money. The lawsuit states that he "treated the binding lease like an option," according to DeGregory.

After he "decided not to take possession of the leased premises, Syndergaard repudiated and abandoned his obligations under the lease, refusing to take possession of the leased premises, and declining to make any of the required payments," the court documents read.

Syndergaard received notice April 17 that he had defaulted on the lease, according to the documents. He and his lawyers told the landlord April 30 that he wasn't moving in and was free to put the unit back on the market.

The landlord, who has apparently been unable to rerent the unit, is seeking $250,000, the full value of the eight-month lease, according to DeGregory.

Syndergaard, 27, will miss the entire 2020 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in March.
