Noah Syndergaard has been named the Mets' Opening Day starter.
"Easiest [decision] I've made in a while," manager Terry Collins told the media in Mets camp on Thursday. Syndergaard is a worthy pick after dominating to the tune of a 2.60 ERA, 1.149 WHIP, and 218/43 K/BB ratio in 183 2/3 innings last season. The mountainous 24-year-old right-hander packed on 17 pounds of muscle over the winter. Feb 16 - 12:49 PM

Marc Carig of Newsday passes along word that the Mets have no qualms with Noah Syndergaard trying to throw harder so long as he is consistent with his mechanics.

Syndergaard recently told Sports Illustrated that he has packed on 17 pounds this offseason in the quest to improve his strength and durability, with the hope being that he will hopefully be able to stave off the elbow issues which cropped up last summer. Just how much he could actually improve on his fastball speed is debatable. Syndergaard led all qualified starters with a 97.9 MPH heater on average in 2016. There's only so much more room for improvement on that front.

The Mets' top four starters aren't expected to pitch in Grapefruit League action until March 4.

That group includes Noah Syndergaard, Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, and Steven Matz. This is part of a plan to reduce the workload on the prized arms. Zack Wheeler, Robert Gsellman, and Seth Lugo are competing for the final spot in the rotation. That competition should start a bit earlier than March 4.

Noah Syndergaard told Sports Illustrated that he has put on 17 pounds this offseason.

Thor wants to enter the 2017 season with more strength and durability after battling elbow problems late last year. Look out. Syndergaard, 24, owns a dominant 2.89 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 384 strikeouts in 333 2/3 career major league innings. The 6-foot-6 right-hander also holds a 2.42 career ERA in five playoff appearances.

Noah Syndergaard will not pitch for Team USA in the World Baseball Classic.

That's no surprise after Syndergaard dealt with elbow problems to close out the 2016 season. He should be 100 percent for the start of MLB spring training next February and all signs point to him being a fantasy ace throughout the 2017 campaign. The 24-year-old right-hander finished 2016 with a brilliant 2.60 ERA, 1.149 WHIP, and 218/43 K/BB ratio in 183 2/3 innings.

Noah Syndergaard will not require offseason surgery on his right elbow, per Mets GM Sandy Alderson.

Syndergaard pitched through a bone spur for a large chunk of 2016, but it's not significant enough to require a procedure and the 24-year-old ace can enjoy a normal winter. Syndergaard finished with a 2.60 ERA, 1.149 WHIP, and 218/43 K/BB ratio in 183 2/3 innings this year.

There are no plans at this time for Noah Syndergaard to undergo surgery to remove a bone spur in his right elbow.

Teammate Steven Matz underwent surgery last week to remove a bone spur, but the Mets had indicated all along the Matz's spur was more of an issue than Syndergaard's. "Thor" pitched through the malady for months and posted a 2.65 second-half ERA before a dominant Wild Card Game performance. It's always possible the spur will move to a spot where it becomes more of an issue, but for now it doesn't appear to be anything to be overly concerned about.

Noah Syndergaard was phenomenal in taking a no-decision in Wednesday's 3-0 Wild Card Game loss to the Giants, striking out 10 while tossing seven innings of shutout ball.

Syndergaard took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before Denard Span singled with two outs in the frame to end the no-no attempt. He finished his superlative evening having thrown 108 pitches (70 strikes). Despite the stellar performance, Syndergaard was unable to come away with a decision, as Madison Bumgarner matched him with seven scoreless innings of his own (and then some). Conor Gillaspie would burn Jeurys Familia with a three-run homer in the ninth to end the Mets' season.

Noah Syndergaard will start Wednesday's Wild Card Game versus the Giants.

He'll be squaring off against 2014 postseason hero Madison Bumgarner. Syndergaard's first full major league season was a dominant one, as he put up a 2.60 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 218/43 K/BB ratio across 183 2/3 innings. Thor faced the Giants twice during the regular season, allowing four runs with 12 strikeouts over 13 2/3 frames. He shut them out over eight innings in late August.

Mets manager Terry Collins has confirmed that Noah Syndergaard will not start Sunday's game against the Phillies.

The right-hander will simply throw a long bullpen session instead after the Mets clinched the top National League Wild Card spot on Saturday. Gabriel Ynoa will take the ball versus the Phils.
Sun, Oct 2, 2016 01:38:00 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Noah Syndergaard may not make his scheduled start Sunday against the Phillies.

The plan had been for Syndergaard to throw about 25 pitches on Sunday but now the Mets are leaning toward having him throw a bullpen session instead. The Mets need Syndergaard fresh for Wednesday's Wild Card game at Citi Field. Collins also said that Yoenis Cespedes and Asdrubal Cabrera will have the day off on Sunday.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Noah Syndergaard will only throw 25 pitches in Sunday's start against the Phillies if the team has already clinched a Wild Card.

That would set him up to be fresh for next Wednesday's National League Wild Card Game. However, if the Mets are still in need of a win to get in on Sunday, Syndergaard would not be on a limited pitch count. Bartolo Colon might then be asked to start that loser-goes-home Wild Card Game next Wednesday.

Noah Syndergaard struck out eight while allowing one run over six innings in Tuesday's win over the Marlins.

Syndergaard gave up five hits, all singles, without issuing a walk in the win. The right-hander improved to 14-9 with a 2.60 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 31 games, including 30 starts. In theory, the start Tuesday should have been his last, but with the Mets' rotation in shambles and Sunday technically being the fifth day after his start it's possible -- perhaps likely -- that the team will throw him in the regular season finale, assuming they don't already have a Wild Card spot locked up.

Noah Syndergaard (illness) will start Tuesday against the Marlins.

Syndergaard needed a few extra days after falling ill with strep throat. He threw a bullpen session on Saturday and appears to be feeling much better. Syndergaard is now in line to pitch the Mets' regular season finale in Philadelphia next weekend. With a slim lead in the Wild Card, it's very possible the Mets' season could come down to that game.

Noah Syndergaard (illness) will throw a bullpen session on Saturday.

Syndergaard was scratched from his scheduled outing Saturday after coming down with strep throat. He seems to be feeling better and could return Monday or Tuesday against the Marlins. Left-hander Sean Gilmartin will fill in Saturday against the Phillies.
