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 Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Syndergaard allowed two hits and no walks, while striking out nine. The highly touted prospect is 1-0 wth a 2.45 ERA in three starts for Las Vegas. He has 16 strikeouts and six walks in 14 2/3 innings. He has allowed just one home run in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League.


Mets prospect Noah Snydergaard scratched from AAA start


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."  

Mets GM Sandy Alderson said that the team had already talked to Snydergaard about the Twitter remarks, calling the social network "a trap". 


Mets' Noah Syndergaard had MRI, but no concern about forearm


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Monday that pitcher Noah Syndergaard underwent an MRI on his forearm at one point, but the team has no concern about it, ESPN New York reports.

Syndergaard was placed at the back of the Triple-A rotation to give him a few extra days to rest the forearm before making his season debut. The pitching prospect will be limited to 60 pitches in his season debut Monday, Newsday reports.


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. 


Mets send P Noah Syndergaard to minor-league camp


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

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.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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.

Mets' Collins fine with how Parnell handled Syndergaard situation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) 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
(3/4/2015) 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."

David Wright has harsh exchange with prospect Noah Syndergaard


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Mets third baseman David Wright had a harsh exchange with starting pitcher prospect Noah Syndergaard for not being on the bench during the club's intrasquad game on Tuesday, per the New York Daily News.

Syndergaard was eating lunch in the clubhouse while the intrasquad game was taking place. As soon as the intrasquad game was over, Wright confronted Syndergaard and reporters heard the third baseman use the word "bench" at least twice during the exchange. Wright declined to address the incident to the media.

"If there is a young player that is here (in major-league camp) there is a reason, they have talent and potential," Wright said. "I would encourage them to use this chance to take every opportunity to learn from it. If you are a young pitcher, you can learn from sitting in with meetings with Dan (Warthen) or watching a Zack Wheeler, who I know is young, but he has experience.

"That's what I think all young players should be doing," Wright said. "That's all."

Syndergaard, who is in his first big-league camp, told Marc Carig of Newsday that he took it as a teaching moment, and that Wright was clear and "made his point."

"I really wasn't expecting it to be that big of a deal," Syndergaard said.


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 | Senior Analyst
(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 | Senior Analyst
(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.
