Noah Syndergaard appears to indicate split with Alexandra Cooper

Noah Syndergaard appeared to indicate with a tweet this week that his relationship with Alexandra Cooper is no more.

The New York Mets pitcher on Monday evening tweeted out an image in which his relationship status is being updated to “single” along with a message reading, “Baseball is my significant other.”

Syndergaard and Cooper, a former star soccer player at Boston University, have been an item for most of the year. The two were spotted being affectionate with one another while attending a New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden back in April.

Syndergaard is coming off a season to forget, to put it mildly. He missed most of the season due to a partially torn lat muscle, an injury many attributed to an overly aggressive offseason workout regimen Syndergaard utilized to bulk up. The 25-year-old pitcher recently revealed a revamped workout plan in light of the injury setbacks.

“I am still lifting heavy, but in a more smart way,” Syndergaard recently stated. “Last year was not the most smart way in terms of exercises and choices. For instance, last year I did a lot of pullups—that’s a lat exercise. This year I haven’t done one pullup yet. It’s different, but still a taxing workout.”

And now with Cooper seemingly out of the picture — and baseball evidently being his only significant other — it would appear Syndergaard’s entire focus is on coming back with a strong 2018 campaign.
