Mets' Noah Syndergaard gets no-decision


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2015) Mets starter Noah Syndergaard allowed one run in six innings but took a no-decision after leaving with the score tied. 

Syndergaard has allowed one earned run in three of his last four starts, but he has just one win to show for it. 

Syndergaard allowed just two hits for the second time in four starts. He walked two and struck out six. 


Mets SP Noah Syndergaard shows brilliance in win on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/26/2015) Mets rookie pitcher Noah Syndergaard was in fine form on Friday, as he led the Mets to a 2-1win over the Reds. Syndergaard allowed just one run on five hits, while striking out five and walking no one. He improved his record to 3-4 on the season, in what was the longest outing of his young career.

Syndergaard gave up his only run in the second inning, and was able to work around a fair amount of baserunners by attacking the aggressive Reds batters and enducing timely ground-ball outs.

The impressive outing drops Syndergaard's ERA to 3.59 on the year.


Mets going to six-man rotation, Steven Matz to debut Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2015) Mets starting pitcher prospect Steven Matz will make his MLB debut Sunday against the Reds, general manager Sandy Alderson announced Friday.

Alderson also said the team will go to a six-man rotation for the "foreseeable future," as Matz will join a rotation that features Bartolo Colon, Jonathon Niese, Matt Harvey, Noah Syndergaard and Jacob deGrom.

"They're on board," Mets manager Terry Collins said, per NJ.com. "As Sandy alluded to, certainly this is in their best interest, a few of them. At the time we did it before things were moving pretty good, guys were pitching pretty well. We went back, we changed it, couple guys didn't pitch all that good even on regular rest.

"They understand we're going to give this a shot, we're going to take a good strong look at it. It's to benefit the whole organization, basically, so that we look up and everybody is pitching. We're not pushing guys back, we're not skipping, guys are out there and competing. That's what they want to do."    

Matz's arrival means Niese will get bumped from Sunday to Tuesday against the Cubs.

Matz, who is considered a top-100 prospect by Baseball America (No. 33) and MLB.com (No. 66), went 7-4 with a 2.19 ERA at Triple-A Las Vegas. He totaled 94 strikeouts in 90 1/3 innings.

Since returning from Tommy John surgery in 2012, the left-hander is 24-20 with a 2.29 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 365 2/3 innings. He is striking out 9.4 batters per nine innings in his career.


Mets SP Noah Syndergaard settles for no-decision on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/20/2015) Mets starter Noah Syndergaard did not have his best stuff in Saturday's start against the Braves. But he was able to escape with a no-decision in the 6-4 loss. The young right-hander was only able to last four innings on Saturday, giving up four runs (three earned) on six hits, while walking two and striking out three. 

His defense behind him abandoned him in this one, committing a couple of costly miscues that led to Braves scoring. Synderagaard needed 88 pitches to get him through the fourth inning, as his ERA ballooned to 4.03 after Saturday's outing. 

"From pitch one I was out there battling," Syndergaard said, per MLB.com. "[I] got my pitch count up way too early. Just another frustrating outing. Similar to the one against San Francisco, I don't think they hit the ball too hard off me. Just have to have a short-term memory after that and continue to do what I've been doing."

Syndergaard will try to get back on track in his next start, scheduled for Friday at home against the Reds.


Mets P Noah Syndergaard impresses in no-decision


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2015) Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard allowed one earned run in a no-decision during Monday night's 4-3 win over the Blue Jays. 

Syndergaard went six innings and only gave up two hits and two walks. He struck out 11 batters in his outing. This was by far Syndergaard's best performance of the season. He now has a 4.20 ERA this season.

"Noah was outstanding," Mets manager Terry Collins said, via NJ.com. "That's about as good an outing as I've seen him have."

His next start is projected for Saturday against the Braves. 


GM: Mets' Syndergaard could end up in 'pen to manage innings


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2015) Mets rookie starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard will take the hill Monday against the Blue Jays for his seventh career start. However, before the game, general manager Sandy Alderson told reporters the right-hander could be moved to the bullpen later this year to manage his innings, per NJ.com.

Alderson's comments come after a report surfaced in the New York Post that the Mets already discussed moving Syndergaard to a relief role to help shore up the bullpen and clear a rotation spot for prospect Steven Matz. However, the team opted against it and chose to keep Syndergaard in the rotation for the time being.

The Mets designated pitcher Dillon Gee for assignment Monday. Alderson indicated Gee's removal from the roster "probably" clears the way for Matz to be called up soon.


Report: Mets discussed Syndergaard to 'pen, promoting Matz


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2015) The lack of a reliable setup man had the Mets discussing moving rookie starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard to a relief role to shore up the bullpen and calling up prospect Steven Matz to replace him in the rotation, a source told the New York Post.

However, the Mets opted against the move since they remain committed to Syndergaard in the rotation and will look elsewhere for bullpen help. The Mets are expected to promote Akeel Morris from Class A St. Lucie to join the bullpen. Morris has a 1.69 ERA, 13 saves and 46 strikeouts in 32 innings for St. Lucie.

As for Syndergaard, who was acquired in a 2012 trade with the Blue Jays, he will face his former team Monday. But the right-hander contends Monday's outing doesn't hold any extra meaning.

“It’s just another game to me,” he said.


Mets alter rotation plans, Dillon Gee to start Sunday vs. Braves


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2015) Dillon Gee is headed back to the Mets rotation for at least one start, as the team announced Friday he will start Sunday against the Braves. Noah Syndergaard, who was scheduled to start Sunday, has been pushed back to Monday against the Blue Jays.

Matt Harvey is now the probable pitcher for Tuesday, and he is expected to be followed in the rotation by Jonathon Niese, Bartolo Colon and Jacob deGrom.

The Mets are going to use a "light" six-man rotation, meaning they will slot in Gee when they can, according to ESPN.


Mets' Noah Syndergaard loses second straight


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2015) Mets starter Noah Syndergaard gave up 10 hits in six innings in Tuesday's loss to San Francisco. 

Syndergaard dropped his second straight decision, dropping to 2-4 on the year. He gave up four runs, walked a batter, surrendered a home run and struck out two.

Syndergaard's next start is Sunday, against Atlanta.


Mets' Noah Syndergaard Ks 10, allows 10 hits in uneven outing


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard became the first pitcher in MLB history to strike out 10, allow 10 hits and get pulled before throwing five innings in Tuesday's loss to San Diego, per NJ.com.

Syndergaard (2-2) surrendered a two-run single to Alexi Amarista and a two-run triple to Will Venable in the second. Cory Spangenberg tripled in another run off Syndergaard in the third, and Derek Norris launched a solo home run off the right-hander in the fourth. He was charged with seven earned runs on 10 hits and no walks over four innings of a 7-2 defeat. 

"It was definitely a frustrating start for me because I went out there and I felt like I had some of the best stuff I've had all year," Syndergaard said, per MLB.com. "It was kind of like the start that Cashner had … not a whole lot of hard contact, just kind of hitting balls where people weren't. You can try to take some positives away from it, like the 10 strikeouts. And I was fortunate that I didn't walk anybody. But I didn't get the job done."

Syndergaard allowed eight runs -- five earned -- over his first three career starts before tossing 7 1/3 scoreless innings prior to Tuesday's uneven outing. He owns a 3.77 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP and 32:5 K:BB ratio over 28 2/3 innings. His next start will come Tuesday at home against San Francisco.


Mets SP Noah Syndergaard strikes out six in win over Phillies


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/27/2015) Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard threw 7 1/3 scoreless innings in his team's 7-0 win over the Phillies on Wednesday.

Syndergaard (2-2) allowed just six hits while also striking out six batters in the outing. In 24 2/3 innings this season he has allowed just seven earned runs, good for a 3.45 ERA.


Mets planning to use six-man rotation into August


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Once Dillon Gee joins the Mets rotation after his last rehab start Wednesday for Double-A Binghamton, the team plans to go to a six-man rotation through at least early August, pitching coach Dan Warthen said Wednesday.

Warthen said the goal is to have the starters make roughly 30 starts instead of the usual 33 during the regular season. The team also wants to be conservative with some of the younger arms -- Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard. The other two pitchers in the rotation are veterans Bartolo Colon and Jonathon Niese.

"It is better for the player. It's better for the organization, at least, until we get to where we feel like we have plenty of innings left in September and still have the possibility of innings left in October," Warthen said, per ESPN.

"Our No. 1 concern is our pitchers, and our pitchers staying healthy. We have some other [young] ones -- [prospect Steven] Matz is coming along. We're going to have Syndergaard here, deGrom here, Harvey here. Those are the guys who are the big concerns. As for the other guys, they have to go along with it. It's going to only prolong their careers. From the organization's standpoint, from my standpoint, I think it's a smart thing to do."


Mets' Collins to use six-man rotation when Dillon Gee returns


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Mets manager Terry Collins said Monday that pitcher Jacob deGrom is on an innings limit this season, The Star-Ledger reports. Collins also spoke about his plans to use a six-man rotation when Dillon Gee returns from the disabled list, saying that he told his pitchers it was to keep them fresh late in the year.

deGrom threw 178 1/3 innings last season, with a majority of them coming in the majors during his Rookie of the Year campaign. He's up to 55 2/3 innings this season through nine starts and owns a 2.75 ERA and 54:13 K:BB ratio.

The team is looking to limit the innings of deGrom, Matt Harvey and Noah Syndergaard in the event of a possible playoff run, MLB.com reports.

"The six-man rotation, at this point, is in large part to manage innings, manage appearances, manage pitches," general manager Sandy Alderson said "There is always the risk that guys are getting too much rest. But at the same time, we don't want to run out of innings for any of our starting pitchers at the end of the season."


Mets P Noah Syndergaard strikes out 5 in loss to Pirates


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard fell to 1-2 for the season after losing Friday night's game 4-1 to the Pirates. 

Syndergaard, the heralded 22-year-old, allowed four runs — three earned — in six innings of work. He gave up seven hits, struck out five and didn't surrender any walks. He now holds an ERA of 3.63 this season. 

After giving up five walks in his first two starts, it's a good sign that Syndergaard was able to prevent any from occurring against the Pirates. 

Though his stat line wasn't the best, his performance was solid enough for manager Terry Collins to keep him in the rotation. 

“Right now, he’s not going anywhere," Collins said, via the Wall Street Journal

Syndergaard's next start is projected for May 27 against the Phillies. 


Mets SP Dillon Gee nearing return from DL; team to decide on role


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/19/2015) As Mets starter Dillon Gee gets closer to his return from the disabled list, some are wondering whether he will remain in the rotation or head to the bullpen. Gee has been on the DL with a groin injury since May 8, but has already made a couple of rehab starts.

If he does in fact stay in the rotation upon his return, the Mets must decide what to do with top prospect Noah Syndergaard. Options include moving him to the bullpen or sending him back down to Triple-A. Right now, the club has been ambiguous about their decisions.

“Every new data point is useful,” general manager Sandy Alderson said, per ESPN.com. “We’ll see how Dillon throws and see how Noah throws. This isn’t a competition, but it’s new information. So rather than speculating on what will happen, we’ll let things unfold and try to make decisions accordingly.”

Prior to going on the DL, Gee had an 0-2 record with a 3.86 ERA in five starts. Meanwhile, Syndergaard has a 3.18 ERA over his first two career starts. 


Mets starter Noah Syndergaard earns first MLB win Sunday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/17/2015) Mets starter Noah Syndergaard (1-1) earned his first MLB victory Sunday, allowing one run on three hits in six innings to defeat the Brewers.

Syndergaard breezed into the sixth inning but was shaken up after hitting Carlos Gomez in the head with a 97-mph fastball, forcing the centerfielder to leave the game. 

Ryan Braun followed shortly with an RBI single, the only blemish for Syndergaard. 

"It's never really happened," Syndergaard said about hitting Gomez. "It kind of rattled me a little bit." 

Syndergaard fanned five and walked one in the outing. 

"He doesn't just go out there and say, 'Hey, I've got great stuff, I'm just going to pitch,'" Mets manager Terry Collins said. 

Syndergaard will look for career win number two Friday when he starts next in Pittsburgh.


Mets and Cubs could be trade partners before too long


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/15/2015) Could the Cubs and Mets be trade partners in the near future? The two do seem to be a perfect pair for a deal this summer, as the Cubs have a plethora of young hitters and they really like the Mets' stock of young pitching.

And, as CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports, the Cubs were supposedly watching the Mets' minor league teams recently. The Cubs are particularly interested in Noah Syndergaard, who made his MLB debut on Tuesday at Wrigley Field. 

It remains to be seen if the two teams are able to strike a deal prior to the July 31 deadline. 


Mets SP Noah Syndergaard makes solid MLB debut but takes loss


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/12/2015) Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard (0-1) made his major league debut Tuesday, throwing five shutout innings until a three-run sixth inning did him in against the Cubs, as he took the loss. 

"I was very impressed. I thought he threw the ball well," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "Obviously, he's got good stuff and I was certainly impressed with how he threw it."

After Starlin Castro doubled in the Cubs' first run, Chris Coghlan delivered a two-run homer off Syndergaard in the sixth. 

"They've got a lot of thunder in their lineup," Syndergaard said. "But it instills a lot of confidence in me when I can go there throw five innings against them," Syndergaard said.

Syndergaard gave up six hits overall, striking out six and walking four in 5 1/3 innings. 

"He was electric," opposing pitcher Jake Arrieta said. "We kind of knew what we were up against and he came out strong."

Syndergaard is scheduled to make his second career MLB start Sunday against the Brewers.


Mets' Collins on Noah Syndergaard: 'I think he's ready'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard is set to make his major-league debut Tuesday, and manager Terry Collins believes he's made huge progress this season and is ready for the challenge of pitching in the majors, NJ.com reports.

"I'm pretty impressed with the makeup," Collins said. "I think he's made a huge stride from last year. I saw the way he went about things in spring training this year. I think he's ready. That's why I told him this isn't just a gift to see if you can pitch here. You earned your right to be here."

Pitching boach Dan Warthen agrees after believing the pitching prospect was a "little bit on the immature side" last season.

"I just don't think he's overwhelmed," Warthen said. "I think he's matured a great deal. I don't think he's going to be overwhelmed by the bright lights and big cities."

Syndergaard, who was ranked the No. 10 prospect in baseball by MLB.com before the season, is 3-0 with a 1.82 ERA and 34:8 K:BB ratio in 29 2/3 innings across five starts with Triple-A Las Vegas.


Top-prospect Noah Syndergaard to debut for Mets on Tuesday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/8/2015) Top-prospect Noah Syndergaard will make his major-league debut for the Mets on Tuesday in Chicago against the Cubs, reports NJ.com.

Mets starter Dillon Gee (groin) was placed on the disabled list Friday, opening the rotation spot for Syndergaard.

Syndergaard has had a strong season in Triple-A, going 3-0 in five starts with a 1.82 ERA, striking out 34 in 29 2/3 innings. 

The Mets will move up starter Bartolo Colon to Sunday and Jacob deGrom to Monday.

Syndergaard's expected to be called up to the Mets on Saturday.

Mets' Noah Syndegaard impressive on mound, at plate Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/8/2015) Mets top pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard continued his brilliant 2015 season for Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday. Syndergaard, the 11th best prospect in baseball according to Baseball America, struck out eight batters over eight innings, allowing two earned runs on five hits. He had a scoreless streak come to an end at 19 innings when he allowed a run to cross in the sixth.

Syndergaard also fell a triple shy of the cycle Thursday, going 3 for 4 with a home run, a double and and two RBI.  

On the season, the right-hander has a crisp 1.82 ERA to go along with a 3-0 record and a 34:8 K:BB ratio in 29 2/3 innings for the 51s. If he keeps pitching with this kind of dominance, the Mets may not be able to keep him down on the farm for much longer.

Syndergaard seems to be next in line for when the Mets are in need of a spot start, according to Newsday.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Mets prospect Noah Snydergaard was scratched from Friday's start for Triple-A Las Vegas with an illness. Snydergaard had a case of food poisoning that required an IV.

Mets VP Paul DePodesta said Snydergaard should be able to pitch over the weekend, per ESPN.

Snydergaard made waves on Twitter by responding to a fan critical of him for missing the start. 
"I'm sure you call in sick to your pathetic 9-to-5 job all the time," he tweeted to the fan. "Or you might not even have one."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Forearm pain slowed Mets SP Noah Syndergaard during spring


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/12/2015) Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard experienced some forearm tightness during spring training, one of the reasons why the team did not put him on the major league roster to start the season, per MLB.com. 

Syndergaard was viewed as a potential replacement for injured starter Zack Wheeler, but the team sent Syndergaard down to their Triple-A camp on March 20.  Last year, he went 9-7 with a 4.60 ERA in 26 starts at Triple-A Vegas.
