Mike Puma of the New York Post writes that the Mets may first attempt to interview Dodgers bench coach Bob Geren and Astros bench coach Alex Cora for their vacant manager job.
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson will begin interviewing candidates this week and ideally he'd be able to talk to Geren and Cora before they get too busy with their respective duties for the postseason. Puma reported over the weekend that hitting coach Kevin Long and former White Sox manager and Mets third baseman Robin Ventura "stand out as early front runners" for the job, but Joe McEwing and Chip Hale are among the other possible names under consideration.

Dan Warthen won't return as Mets pitching coach in 2018.

Also of note, longtime Mets trainer Ray Ramirez is out after the team was plagued by injuries in 2017. Terry Collins has accepted the position of special assistant to general manager Sandy Alderson. Warthen has been the team's pitching coach since 2008 and has earned the vocal praise of members of the pitching staff, but the front office wants a new voice for the role. Warthen has been offered another role in the organization. As the Mets search for a new manager, bench coach Dick Scott, first base coach Tom Goodwin, and bullpen coach Ricky Bones have been given permission to speak to other teams. However, coaches Kevin Long, Pat Roessler, and Glenn Sherlock will return in 2018.

Noah Syndergaard threw two scoreless innings in an 11-0 thumping to the Phillies on Sunday.

Syndergaard was slated to throw up to 25 pitches on Sunday, and ended up throwing 26. One pitch isn't a huge difference, but it sort of speaks to how things went wrong with the Mets in 2017. When Syndergaard was healthy, he once again looked like one of the best pitchers in baseball. Assuming good health in 2018, there's no reason to think that'll change next year.
Oct 1 - 6:37 PM

Noah Syndergaard is slated to throw up to 25 pitches against the Phillies on Sunday.

He'll presumably start the game, although the Mets didn't officially reveal that. Syndergaard needed just five pitches to get through a scoreless inning last Saturday in his first start in the majors since late April.
Sep 29 - 4:10 PM

Noah Syndergaard could make his final appearance of the year for the Mets on Sunday.

We don't know why, either. It's good that Syndergaard is healthy enough to pitch, but there's almost no reasons outside of finances for him to still be playing in 2017 with the Mets not even able to see the playoffs in the rear view mirror.
Sep 27 - 11:44 PM

Noah Syndergaard is expected to throw just one inning in his final regular-season start this weekend against the Phillies.

Syndergaard was also limited to one inning Saturday versus the Nationals, despite needing just five pitches to record three outs. It was his first start since late April and the Mets are simply trying to gear him up for a normal offseason. The 25-year-old right-hander will be a high-risk, high-reward type of fantasy commodity for 2018.
Sep 26 - 4:09 PM

Noah Syndergaard will make another start for the Mets this week.

Syndergaard needed just five pitches to get through a scoreless inning Saturday in his first start in the majors since late April. He'll probably throw only two innings, at most, in his start later this week, and thus can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Sep 24 - 11:14 AM

Noah Syndergaard (lat) pitched a scoreless inning of work Saturday against the Nationals.

Syndergaard was always going to pitch just the one inning, and he worked around a one-out single to keep the Nats off the board. More noteworthy, his fastball sat consistently around 98 mph during the outing, a good sign. What's next is still unclear, but the Mets may try to get him into one more game this year, depending on how he reacts to Saturday's effort. Syndergaard hadn't pitched since April 30 due to injury, so even if he does get into another game, it won't be anything noteworthy for fantasy owners.
Sep 24 - 12:53 AM

Noah Syndergaard (lat) will start Saturday's game against the Nationals and pitch one inning.

He'll be followed by Matt Harvey, who had been scheduled for the start. It will be Syndergaard's first appearance in the majors since late April, when he went down with a torn right lat muscle. Syndergaard would presumably be lined up for one final start next week, but you can't trust him in fantasy leagues given the long layoff and limited workload. More than anything else, this is more about giving Thor and the Mets some peace of mind about the right-hander's health going into the offseason.
Sep 22 - 3:53 PM

Noah Syndergaard (lat) threw to hitters Monday.

The Mets want to see how Syndergaard feels coming out of the simulated game before making a decision on his status moving forward. The Mets' ace is determined to pitch again before the regular season draws to a close, but they won't take any chances if he's not completely ready. He might only pitch out of the bullpen even if he does return, so fantasy owners shouldn't be clinging to him at this point.
Sep 18 - 2:53 PM

Matt Ehalt of The Record hears that the Mets now have some "hesitation" in pitching Noah Syndergaard (lat) before the end of the season.

The club had been steadfast in wanting to get Syndergaard into a game before the end of the season, mostly as a peace of mind thing going into the winter. However, they're running out of time and it doesn't make sense to rush the big right-hander back unless they're 100 percent confident he's fully ready. Even if Thor does return this month, it will surely only be 1-2 brief token appearances. Fantasy owners don't need to be holding on to him.
Sep 17 - 1:56 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday that the club is now mulling over having Noah Syndergaard (lat) face live hitters before using him in a game.

It sounds like a reasonable idea. Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen previously indicated that Syndergaard could pitch out of the bullpen as early as Saturday, but the club has apparently had a change of heart on the matter. The goal remains getting him back in some capacity before the regular season concludes, but it's mostly about peace of mind going into 2018. Syndergaard has been out since late April with a torn right lat muscle.
Sep 16 - 4:20 PM

Mets' pitching coach Dan Warthen said Friday that Noah Syndergaard (lat) could pitch out of the bullpen as early as Saturday.

Syndergaard made it through a bullpen session on Thursday without any issue. He's only expected to work an inning or two once he does get into a game, so he won't be relevant from a fantasy perspective, but it sounds like the right-hander should finish the season on a high note. He has been on the shelf since late April due to a torn right lat muscle.
Sep 16 - 12:25 AM

Noah Syndergaard (lat) threw a "max effort" 30-pitch bullpen session Thursday, according to Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen.

"Everything looked good, he threw all his pitches, the ball is coming out of his hand well," Warthen said. "It was a max-effort bullpen, so we'll see how he feels tomorrow and go from there." Assuming Syndergaard recovers from Thursday's session well, he'll either throw a longer bullpen session or a simulated game this weekend. The righty had a setback last weekend with some general soreness and is obviously running out of time, but the Mets still want him to get a start or two under his belt before the end of the season. "I think we owe it to ourselves as an organization to say, 'Hey look we got to get Noah out there,'" manager Terry Collins said. "It's peace of mind for us. Peace of mind for him."
Sep 15 - 11:03 AM

Noah Syndergaard (lat) will play catch before Wednesday's game.

Syndergaard recently had his simulated game scratched because of general soreness. Assuming there's no setback, he could have another simulated game scheduled soon. There's still a good chance he'll make another start or two before the end of 2017, even if it doesn't make any sense to.
