Mets send P Noah Syndergaard to minor-league camp
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(3/20/15) Mets prospect Noah Syndergaard was sent down to minor-league camp Friday, per ESPN, a somewhat surprising move considering he was scheduled to start Saturday against the Tigers. Syndergaard has a 4.91 ERA this spring. Last year, he went 9-7 with a 4.60 ERA in 26 starts at Triple-A Vegas.
Syndergaard took a pitch off the ankle during his start Monday, but apparently that was not the reason for the team's decision.

|(3/16/15) With Zack Wheeler likely headed for Tommy John surgery, Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard will not take his rotation spot. Instead, he's expended to start the year at Triple-A Vegas, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN.
Syndergaard took over for Matt Harvey on Monday against Boston, allowing two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out two over 2 2/3 innings of work. He has a 4.91 ERA this spring. Last year, he went 9-7 with a 4.60 ERA in 26 starts at Triple-A Vegas.

|(3/11/15) Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard racked up five strikeouts while pitching 2 2/3 scoreless innings of relief in Wednesday's 7-4 loss to the Marlins.
Syndergaard surrendered two walks and two runs in two innings in his first outing of the spring but came back much better Wednesday. He's likely to begin the season at Triple-A, where he posted a 4.60 ERA and 145:43 K:BB ratio in 133 innings last season.
Mets' Collins fine with how Parnell handled Syndergaard situation
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/4/15) Mets reliever Bobby Parnell said he wasn't trying to embarrass starting pitcher prospect Noah Syndergaard when he threw out his lunch plate in the clubhouse Tuesday in an effort to inform the highly touted prospect he needed to be in the dugout for an intrasquad game. Third baseman David Wright also talked to Syndergaard about being in the clubhouse.
"We try to keep those things behind closed doors, but the media was there and saw it," Parnell said in a statement released by the team, per NJ.com. "But it wasn't about embarrassing anyone. Again, it goes back to creating that culture on and off the field."
Parnell said he talked with Syndergaard since the incident became public.
"It's a clubhouse issue that needed to be handled," Parnell said. "We are trying to create a winning culture around here and that what's the whole situation was about."
Mets manager Terry Collins said he has no issue with how Parnell handled the matter.
"I think it's the perfect way he dealt with it," Collins told NJ.com. "Perfect. I think Bobby did what I would do and a number of other guys would've have done. The captain made a statement and it wasn't really adhered to and Bobby said, 'Maybe he didn't hear it'."
David Wright apologizes for scolding prospect in front of media
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/4/15) Mets third baseman David Wright apologized to prospect Noah Syndergaard on Wednesday for scolding him Tuesday "within earshot" of the press, according to the New York Daily News.|
However, Wright was not apologetic about the message he delivered to the highly touted pitching prosect.
"I talked to Noah yesterday, that's the thing I apologized to him for not realizing that obviously I choose to do it, so it's not the media's fault by any means, but I didn't notice the media was within earshot. So that's what I apologized to Noah for," Wright said.
"Now he has to answer questions, I have to answer questions, (Mets manager) Terry (Collins) has to answer questions, that's not the way that I like to handle things. I wasn't aware of my surroundings. As far as the content of it, I think that's something that I think Noah did an excellent job understanding the situation, he was very remorseful of the situation."
On Tuesday, Wright and reliever Bobby Parnell were upset Syndergaard went into the clubhouse to eat lunch while the Mets were in the middle of an intrasquad game. Wright told Syndergaard he needed to be on the bench during the game, but Parnell went one step further by throwing out the plate of food Syndergaard was eating.
Syndergaard, who added staying in the clubhouse was "straight up" ignorance on his part, said Wright has spoken to him twice since the incident.
"He wanted to make sure I knew that Bobby (Parnell) and he were not picking on me," Syndergaard said Wednesday. "He just wanted to make it clear, they care about me, they want me to be a part of the team, they think I can contribute in the future."
|2014 summary: Going into 2014, Noah Syndergaard looked like he'd follow in the footsteps of Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler as a high-profile midseason callup, but the Mets decided his performance at Triple-A Las Vegas didn't warrant a promotion. He had a 4.60 ERA and 1.48 WHIP there. Of course, he kept throwing the ball over the plate, which is something young pitchers have a hard time doing in a hitter-friendly environment, so his prospect stock remains high.|
Playing time status: After what happened last season, you can't assume anything with Syndergaard, but it'd be a complete shock if he doesn't get the call at some point this season, especially with Zack Wheeler having Tommy John surgery. Between Bartolo Colon, Jonathon Niese and Dillon Gee, who are all injury prone and marginal pitchers to begin with, the Mets will have an opening for Syndergaard at some point.
2015 outlook: Like Harvey and Wheeler before him, Syndergaard throws hard and profiles as a bat misser at the highest level, but he's a more economical pitcher than those two at this stage of his development. You wouldn't be wrong to draft him late in a mixed league, provided you're willing to stash him for a couple month.
