Mets SP prospect Noah Syndergaard waiting for his opportunity


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) Mets starting pitcher prospect Noah Syndergaard was expected to make his major-league debut in 2014, but he never made it to the majors after having an up-and-down year in the minors.

Syndergaard said Wednesday he didn't deserve a promotion, as he struggled due to an over-reliance on his fastball, per ESPN.

"Being in Triple-A, you’ve got guys who have been in the big leagues for a number of seasons. So they can hit a fastball," Syndergaard said. "Hitting is timing, and pitching is throwing off timing. If you throw three fastballs on the heart of the plate, they’re going to time one up."

Syndergaard appears headed back to the minors to start the 2015 season since the Mets have a logjam of starters at the major-league level. Still, Syndergaard's long-awaited MLB debut might finally happen this season.

“I try not to pay attention to that,” Syndergaard said. “We all have a goal in mind, and that’s to help the Mets get some victories. And I just pay attention to whatever is in my control."


Mets' Noah Syndergaard preparing for breakout season in 2015


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2015) Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard knows he wasn't as good as he could've been in his first major league season in 2014. He also thinks he was able to grow a lot during the transition process.

"I'm going to take the things I learned last year and bring them into this year and become a well-rounded pitcher," Syndergaard said to the New York Post. "I can only worry about what I do, I can’t worry about outside factors. Do what I can do."

While some scouts have doubts about if Syndergaard can develop into the ace of the staff in New York, he is worrying about the things he knows he can control.

"I would start pressing and get really predictable," he said of getting in trouble on the mound. "I let things get in my head, like the Super Two thing. I was having a little bit of impatience. I’m glad I got to experience all of it at the minor league level as opposed to going up to the major leagues and experiencing it there. It’s all about how you bounce back and how you handle adversity."

He posted a 9-7 record with a 4.60 ERA in Triple-A Las Vegas last season.

"I’m real big on the breathing side of things and visualization," Syndergaard said.


Report: Scouts, execs starting to sour on Mets prospect Syndergaard


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) While Noah Syndergaard is still widely considered one of the Mets' top prospects -- and the subject of a few trade rumors -- some doubt has started to develop about how good the 22-year-old right-hander can be, according to FOX Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal.

Wally Backman, who is the manager of the Mets' Triple-A affiliate, told fans last week at he Queens Baseball Convention that he considers Steven Matz the team's top pitching prospect. According to reports, Backman said Syndergaard "has the stuff to win a Cy Young," but his "command is an issue and he's slow from the stretch, but he has the stuff."

Some rival scouts and executives have also expressed concerns about Syndergaard by saying his fastball lacks movement and he projects as a power reliever.

However, not everyone seems to share the same opinion about Syndergaard, who is coming off a down season at Triple-A Las Vegas. He went 9-7 with a 4.60 ERA in 26 starts last season.

"He's still young and has aptitude and work ethic," one scout said. "Because his numbers weren't great in the (Pacific Coast League) at altitude, people want to come off him some. But I think he has a chance to be a No. 2 and at worst a good No. 3."


Report: Zobrist, Desmond were part of failed Mets-Rays-Nationals trade


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2015) A three-team trade involving the Mets, Nationals and Rays, which included players Ian Desmond and Ben Zobrist, had been discussed recently, but fell through after the Mets balked at the Rays asking price, sources told FOX Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal. 

The talks unfolded with the Nationals trading Desmond to the Rays for Zobrist and Yunel Escobar, who were eventually traded to the Athletics on Saturday. The Rays would have then dealt Desmond to the Mets, who are looking for an upgrade at shortstop.

Unfortunately, the Mets chose not to pursue the deal after the Rays requested two top prospects from a list of three, which New York considered too much for Desmond, who will be a free agent after the 2015 season. The Rays' list included Mets top pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard. It is not known who the other two targets were.

The Mets were also engaged with the Rays in a trade for Zobrist, but once again the Rays wanted two top prospects and the Mets did not want to make that deal. Zobrist will also be a free agent after the 2015 season.


Mets P Syndergaard center of Tulowitzki talks with Rockies


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) Premier Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard is the centerpiece of trade talks involving Rockies star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, per CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, who is further reporting that the teams are not close to finalizing a trade.

The pitching-rich Mets are dangling the 22-year-old Syndergaard, who struggled at the Triple-A level in 2014 with a 4.60 ERA and career-worst 1.48 WHIP. Syndergaard has fanned 474 in just 426 2/3 innings.


Mets put Noah Syndergaard, five others on 40-man roster


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2014) The Mets placed six pitchers to their 40-man roster, including highly-touted prospect Noah Syndergaard, reports The Star-Ledger. New York also added pitchers Cory Mazzoni, Hansel Robles, Gabriel Ynoa, Akeel Morris and Jack Leathersich.

Pitcher Jeff Walters, who's recovering from Tommy John surgery, was removed from the 40-man roster.


Noah Syndergaard won't be recalled


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) 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
(8/10/2014) 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
(7/28/2014) 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
(7/28/2014) 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
(7/23/2014) 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.


Noah Syndergaard could join Mets rotation in August?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Although Mets manager Terry Collins isn't sure if starting pitcher prospect Noah Syndergaard will make his major-league debut in 2014, others in the organization anticipate the top pitching prospect being in the majors as early as August, according to the New York Daily News.

They view Syndergaard as a potential replacement for Bartolo Colon, who is being mentioned in trade rumors.

"In the worst case, it would be (Daisuke) Matsuzaka, and in the best case, it would be Syndergaard," one source said, explaining why the organization would be comfortable replacing Colon over the next two months.


Noah Syndergaard struggles again Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/18/2014) Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard had another rough start Thursday in the minors.

Syndergaard entered the season as one of the game's top pitching talents. He's had some hardships this season, dealing with injuries and ineffectiveness. Syndergaard allowed seven runs on nine hits over five innings Thursday. He struck out five and walked three. Syndergaard's Triple-A ERA jumped to 5.74 on the year. He was expected to make his major-league debut at some point this season, but that could be on hold until he turns things around. 


Noah Syndergaard still has hopes of a 2014 MLB debut


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) It has not been a banner year for Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard, who many projected would be in the majors by now and potentially a major contributor to the Mets' rotation.

Alas, Syndergaard continues to toil in the minors, leaving doubt about a 2014 promotion to the majors. Still, Syndergaard has his mind set on getting the call this season.

"I'm still 21 years old. I still got time,'' Syndergaard said Sunday while attending the Futures Game, per Newsday. "There's really no rush. I'm just hoping I can get up there pretty quickly, contribute to some wins and hopefully a playoff push.''

Syndergaard is 7-4 with a 5.31 ERA in 16 starts for Triple-A Las Vegas, but he is coming off one of his best starts, allowing one run and striking out eight in seven innings.

Syndergaard said the last time out showed his progression as a pro and his ability to adapt to advanced hitters. Catcher Kevin Plawecki, who recently joined the roster at Las Vegas, attributed the strong performance to Syndergaard relying on his best pitch.

"You got a guy throwing 98 to 100, I don't know why you wouldn't want to throw it more,'' Plawecki said. "We utilized his fastball a whole lot more in his last start. I think that showed him where he's going to make his bread-and-butter.''


Noah Syndergaard might not debut in 2014?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2014) Mets manager Terry Collins said Tuesday "there's a possibility" top pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard will not be promoted to the majors this season, per MLB.com. When asked why, Collins replied, "[Stuff] happens."

Noah Syndergaard won't be up until August at the earliest


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2014) Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard won't be in the majors until August at the earliest, according to the New York Daily News.

Syndergaard is considered close to the majors, but the team doesn't want to move him up any time soon. Syndergaard has dealt with a couple injuries in the minors this season. Over 65 innings, he's posted a 4.98 ERA. 


Noah Syndergaard not being considered for promotion yet


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard is not being considered for a promotion yet, according to the New York Daily News.

Syndergaard is likely to make his major-league debut at some point this season, but the team has not had any concrete discussions about moving him up at this point. Syndergaard has dealt with some injury issues in Triple-A, which have prevented him from putting up dominant numbers. His debut is still a few months away at this time.

Syndergaard suffered the injury during Thursday's game for Triple-A Las Vegas, when he collided with a baserunner. He had X-rays and an MRI taken on the shoulder, which revealed no structural damage beyond the sprain. He will resume throwing after 5-7 days of rest.
