Mets manager Terry Collins confirmed Sunday that Noah Syndergaard will not be recalled by the Mets during September.
There had been some thought that the prized pitching prospect would get a chance over the season's final month, but the Mets don't want to push him too far. The 22-year-old southpaw compiled a 4.60 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 145/43 K/BB ratio over 133 innings in a disappointing season at Triple-A Las Vegas this year. Sep 7 - 5:14 PM

Mets right-handed pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard struck out eight over six innings pitched, allowing six runs (five earned), eight hits, one walk, and one hit batsman for Triple-A Las Vegas.

Syndergaard had a rough start to the game, allowing two singles and two doubles to the first four batters of the game, got two outs, then another double and another single before striking out Andrew Heaney to end the inning. After that he pitched well, striking out seven over five innings while scattering four hits, one walk, and one hit batsman and permitting only one unearned run. Syndergaard has had an up-and-down year, and should make his major league debut in early 2015, though the Mets may need to make a few trades to clear a spot for him.

Mets prospect RHP Noah Syndergaard allowed three earned runs on five over six innings on Tuesday for Triple-A Las Vegas, striking out eight batters against two walks.

The 21-year-old’s strong outing comes just two days after the Mets announced he was unlikely to reach the major leagues before 2015. Syndergaard’s command and execution has been challenged this season in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, which accounts for his 5.31 ERA, 1.51 WHIP, .303 BAA and 11.0 H/9 in 79 2/3 innings. Beyond that, however, the right-hander has posted an impressive strikeout-to-walk ratio of 82-23 and is once again inducing groundball outs at a favorable rate. Syndergaard went through a rough patch during June and early July, but he’s since put together a run of six solid outings during which he owns a 3.48 ERA with 37 strikeouts over 33 2/3 innings.

According to ESPN New York's Adam Rubin, the Mets will likely wait until 2015 to promote top pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard to the major league level.

The primary reason, via Rubin's source: Triple-A Las Vegas is playoff-bound and Syndergaard probably won't have any innings left after that run. Syndergaard totaled 118 2/3 frames in 2013 (including his work in the Futures Game) and is already up to 107 frames this season despite shoulder and elbow issues. He turns 22 years old later this month.
Aug 11 - 12:32 PM

Mets right-handed pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard struck out seven batters over six shutout innings, scattering eight hits for Triple-A Las Vegas.

Seven of the eight hits were singles, and Syndergaard threw 77 of his 107 pitches for strikes (72.0 percent). During his last three starts, he has struck out 20 over 17 1/3 innings, holding opposing batters to a .266/.329/.297 line despite a .386 BABIP. Syndergaard should be in line for a promotion before the end of the season, but the Mets rotation of Wheeler/Niese/deGrom/Colon/Gee is without an obvious candidate to be removed from the rotation. Perhaps Syndergaard will be promoted when deGrom hits his innings limit for the season.
Aug 2 - 12:28 PM

David Lennon of Newsday hears that the Mets will not move top prospect Noah Syndergaard in "any type of deal."

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reported Monday that the Mets are prepared to offer Syndergaard in a possible deal for Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, but that's apparently not the case. Of course, there's no evidence that the two sides have had serious talks, so it's hard to say for sure. Either way, it would obviously take an immense talent for the Mets to consider parting with him.
Jul 28 - 4:11 PM

Mets prospect RHP Noah Syndergaard allowed one run on six hits in seven innings and struck out eight batters on Sunday for Triple-A Las Vegas.

It was the 21-year-old's first seven-inning outing since April 30, while the eight strikeouts was his highest total since May 10, when he fanned a season-high 10 batters. Syndergaard has really struggled in his four previous starts, with a 9.33 ERA and .958 opponents' OPS in 18 1/3 innings, so hopefully his performance on Sunday was genuinely a step in the right direction. Overall, the right-hander has pitched to a 5.31 ERA and 82-23 strikeout-to-walk ratio this season in 79 2/3 innings for Las Vegas. That said, there's a chance Syndergaard won't reach the major leagues this season, per previous reports, even if he rights the ship during the second half.
Jul 7 - 12:26 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Tuesday that it's a "possibility" that pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard will not be promoted this season.

It was considered a virtual certainty before the season that Syndergaard would make it up to the bigs in 2014, but that's no longer the case after he's posted a 5.70 ERA at Triple-A while also dealing with a couple injuries. For what it's worth, team sources told the New York Daily News' Roger Rubin and Kristie Ackert that the organization "still would like to have the right-hander pitch at the big-league level, but only if he shows that he’s ready to take the step." There's certainly no reason to rush the 21-year-old, and if he does earn a call-up it probably won't come before September.
Jul 2 - 9:20 AM

Mets prospect RHP Noah Syndergaard allowed five earned runs on five hits and three walks in four innings Thursday for Triple-A Las Vegas.

He struck out four batters in the start, which also was his second consecutive outing with five earned runs allowed. The 21-year-old has really struggled this month, with a 9.98 ERA and .328 opponents' batting average in 15 1/3 innings over four starts. Overall, Syndergaard owns a 5.35 ERA and 71-23 strikeout-to-walk rate in 69 innings this season, and according to recent reports, won't debut with the Mets before August.
Jun 27 - 2:17 PM

Mets right-handed pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard allowed six hits and five runs over 6 2/3 innings for Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday.

Syndergaard was battered by a lineup that included prospects Randal Grichuk (0-for-3, K), Oscar Taveras (0-for-3), and Stephen Piscotty (2-for-3, 2 singles). His results have not been great since his return from injury, but he has kept his walks in check and his strikeout rate remains high, so he could be in Queens as soon as the Mets front office decides he is ready.
Jun 22 - 11:28 AM

Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports that the Mets "have not even had concrete discussions" about when prospect right-hander Noah Syndergaard will be promoted to the majors.

Coming into the season, most expected that Syndergaard would make his major league debut in June, but he has missed time due to a mild flexor pronator strain in his right elbow and a sprained left (non-throwing) shoulder. The 21-year-old returned to action with Triple-A Las Vegas this past Monday, so the good news is that he's healthy, but his major league debut isn't likely to happen until later in the year.
Jun 21 - 10:23 AM

Noah Syndergaard (shoulder) is scheduled to return from the minor league disabled list on Monday.

He'll be limited to 75 pitches in his first start back with Triple-A Las Vegas. The injury was to his non-throwing shoulder, so it isn't an injury that is expected to be a problem moving forward. The time on the DL will also be a good way to limit his innings this season. Expect to see him make his debut in New York before the end of the season.
Jun 15 - 11:19 PM

Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard has been placed on the Triple-A Las Vegas disabled list with a sprained left shoulder.

The Mets are saying that Syndergaard has not suffered a setback, but rather the team is simply placing him on the DL to free up a roster spot. It's not clear how much time the top prospect will miss with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder.
Jun 11 - 3:25 PM

Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard has been diagnosed with a sprained left shoulder.

Syndergaard had just returned from a flexor tendon strain and then had to exit Thursday's start for Triple-A Las Vegas in the first inning after falling on his shoulder while trying to cover home on a wild pitch. The degree of the sprain isn't yet known. "Noah is undergoing further tests today," Sandy Alderson said Friday. "I hope to have something more definitive later this evening."
Jun 6 - 2:24 PM

Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard has been sent for X-rays on his left shoulder.

Syndergaard was injured Thursday during an outing at Triple-A Las Vegas after falling while trying to cover home on a wild pitch. It was his first start since May 21, as he had been shut down with a flexor tendon strain.
