Fantasy Analysis | 1406150925
Noah Syndergaard only mildly interesting for 2014
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

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

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

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

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.''
