Noah Syndergaard has been named the Mets' Opening Day starter.

The nod probably would have gone to Jacob deGrom, but he's been slowed this spring by a back injury and will instead start the Mets' second regular-season game. Syndergaard boasts a 1.38 ERA and 18 strikeouts through 13 innings this spring in the Grapefruit League. He could jump back into the top tier of fantasy starters if his health cooperates.
Mar 13 - 4:29 PM

Noah Syndergaard pitched 3 1/3 scoreless innings and struck out seven Thursday against the Nationals.

Maybe the best outing by a Grapefruit Leaguer so far this spring. Syndergaard should pitch about as well as anyone in the league if he can stay healthy this year. He's the riskiest option among top-10 fantasy SPs, but the potential payoff makes him worth gambling on.
Mar 8 - 5:15 PM

Noah Syndergaard fanned four batters and allowed one run on one hit in three innings against the Marlins on Saturday.

That one run was the only tally of the ballgame. Syndergaard is one of the most elite aces in the game when healthy, and he is healthy right now. How long that will last is anyone's guess. The 25-year-old missed all but seven games of last season. He has a career 2.89 ERA in 61 starts and one relief appearance.
Mar 3 - 6:45 PM

Noah Syndergaard was perfect for two innings Monday against an Astros split-squad.

Syndergaard lit up the radar gun today in what was his Grapefruit League debut, regularly hitting 100 mph in the short but electrifying outing. If his arm holds up this season, he has a good chance of contending for Cy Young honors. Too bad that's such a big if.

Noah Syndergaard will make his Grapefruit League debut on Monday against the Astros.

The 25-year-old hurler was able to recover from his lat injury in time to make a few appearances at the end of the 2017 season, but was limited to just 30 1/3 innings on the season. Unquestionably, he's one of the best pitchers in the world when healthy, though you'll have to absorb the health risk and pay for his ceiling in fantasy drafts. He has been going off the board as the eighth overall starting pitcher in early drafts.

Mets and RHP Noah Syndergaard avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.975 million contract.

"Thor" can push the total up to $3.05 million if he hits his incentives. Syndergaard was eligible for arbitration for the first time this offseason as a Super 2 qualifier.
Jan 12 - 5:28 PM

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.

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.

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.
Wed, Sep 27, 2017 11:44:00 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.

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.
Sun, Sep 24, 2017 11:14:00 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.
