|Noah Syndergaard won't be recalled |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(9/7/14) Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard won't be recalled in September, manager Terry Collins told ESPN.com. The 22-year-old starter is 9-7 with a 4.60 ERA and 1.48 WHIP at Triple-A Las Vegas.
|Carlos Torres, Mets prospects in play for Tuesday start |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(8/10/14) With Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom scratched from his next start due to shoulder soreness, the team has to decide who will start Tuesday against the Nationals.
Assistant general manager John Ricco said Sunday it's unknown how much time deGrom will miss and that is impacting the team's decision on who starts Tuesday.
If doctors determined deGrom will miss just one start, then Carlos Torres will likely start Tuesday. If deGrom needs a stint on the disabled list, then pitching prospects Noah Syndergaard and Rafael Montero could be options to join the rotation.
"The first thing we've got to see is if this is a one-start thing or more than that," Ricco said, per ESPN.
|Noah Syndergaard will not be involved in trades |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/28/14) Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard is not available for trade, according to Newsday.
With the ascension of Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler to the majors, Syndergaard has been the club's top pitching talent. He's taken some lumps in the minors this season, posting a 5.16 ERA and dealing with injuries, but the club is still confident in his talent. Their stance can change prior to the deadline, but it doesn't appear Syndergaard is going anywhere in the next few days.
|Mets could deal Noah Syndergaard to land Troy Tulowitzki |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/28/14) The Mets could be willing to give up premier pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard in an attempt to land stud shortstop Troy Tulowitzki from the Rockies, according to Yahoo! Sports.
Tulowitzki,, however, is dealing with an injured hip that could prove problematic in any trade talks. He still owns a sensational stat line of .340/.432/.603, though the differences in his home-away splits are significant. He's batting .417 at home with 14 home runs and 35 RBI. He's at .257/7/17 on the road.
|Noah Syndergaard only mildly interesting for 2014 |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(7/23/14) If Noah Syndergaard joins the Mets starting rotation in August, as the New York Daily News suggested was a possibility Wednesday, I'd be interested in adding him in an Andrew Heaney sort of way, recognizing his potential at a position where you can never have too many choices but also acknowledging he may still have more work to do.
By the look of his numbers at Triple-A, he has a lot more work to do. Over 18 starts, he has a 5.34 ERA and 1.53 WHIP. But he plays for Las Vegas of the Pacific Coast League, one of the more hitter-friendly venues in an especially hitter-friendly league, so you shouldn't read too much into the numbers. Unlike Rafael Montero, Syndergaard hasn't stopped throwing strikes (which might explain why he's getting hit so hard), so he should fare better in a more neutral environment.
Of course, who knows what other bad habits he might have developed in his attempt to distinguish himself in a league where few pitchers do? If he was dominating the PCL, stashing him would be a no-brainer, but with the numbers he has, it's a roll of the dice.
Ultimately, the point may be moot. The Mets won't have an opening for Syndergaard if they keep Bartolo Colon, and even if they don't, they may fill it with Daisuke Matsuzaka instead.
|Though Travis d'Arnaud was the biggest name acquired in the R.A. Dickey deal last offseason, Noah Syndergaard may have emerged as the superior prospect with the strides he made in 2013. Already equipped with maybe the best fastball in the minors -- a 98-mph runner that handcuffs right-handed batters -- Syndergaard has refined his curveball into a plus secondary pitch, making him a force on the mound. He has always had excellent control for a pitcher who generates so much velocity and movement, issuing 2.5 walks per nine innings over his minor-league career, and it hasn't abated with his climb up the minor-league ladder. In short, he's the latest in what has become a steady stream of top-flight pitching prospects for the Mets, and though he hasn't yet built up the innings to last a full season, he should follow in the footsteps of Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler with a midseason callup, provided he survives two months of the heavy-hitting California League. Outside of NL-only leagues, Syndergaard probably isn't worth stashing all the way from Draft Day, but you'll want to add him when the time is right.
