MLB Chief Officer Joe Torre declined to say whether Noah Syndergaard will be suspended for throwing a brushback pitch at Alcides Escobar in Game 3 of the World Series.
"I'm not going to comment," said Torre. "I'm not going one way or the other." Syndergaard set the tone in Game 3 by whizzing a 97 mph heater by Escobar's head on the first pitch. The rookie admitted his intention after the game, telling reporters "I just didn't want [Escobar] getting too comfortable." If the league does hand down a suspension, Syndergaard would obviously appeal it. He's on target to start Game 7, if necessary. Oct 31 - 8:12 PM

Noah Syndergaard racked up six strikeouts over six innings in a victory over the Royals in Game 3 of the World Series on Friday.

Syndergaard allowed three runs on seven hits and a pair of walks in the contest. The Royals jumped on him in the first inning when Ben Zobrist doubled and came around to score on a fielders choice. They tacked on a pair of runs in the third on an RBI single and a passed ball. He was able to make key pitches when he needed to most though, most notably getting Alex Rios to ground out with the bases loaded to end the sixth inning. The hard-throwing right-hander now sports a 3.32 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 26/8 K/BB ratio in 19 innings this postseason. He would get the start in Game 7 should the Mets extend the series until then.
Oct 30 - 11:31 PM

Noah Syndergaard is lined up to start Game 7 of the World Series against the Royals, if necessary.

Matt Harvey will be available in relief for that game. Syndergaard is also scheduled to start Game 3 at Citi Field on Friday. The rookie has pitched well this postseason, going 1-1 with a 2.77 ERA in three appearances. He's racked up an elite 13.85 K/9 over that span.
Oct 24 - 4:23 PM

Noah Syndergaard racked up nine strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball on Sunday as the Mets defeated the Cubs to take Game 2 of the NLCS.

The rookie right-hander scattered just three hits and a walk in his terrific outing. He labored quite a bit in the early innings though, and an elevated pitch count of 101 forced him out of the game before the end of the sixth inning. The only damage against him came on an RBI double by Kris Bryant, the final hitter he faced before departing in the sixth. He'll take the hill again in a potential Game 6 should the Cubs battle back and force one.
Oct 18 - 11:17 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins announced Saturday that Noah Syndergaard will start Game 2 of the NLCS against the Cubs on Sunday.

There had been some speculation that he would need to be pushed back after throwing so many pitches in the bullpen plus his inning of work in the clinching game of the NLDS, but the young right-hander feels he's ready to go. That likely means Jacob deGrom will work Game 3 with Steven Matz waiting to take the hill until Game 4.
Oct 17 - 3:50 PM

According to Mark Feinsand of The New York Daily News, Noah Syndergaard could get pushed back until Game 4 of the NLCS against the Cubs.

Syndergaard worked an inning of relief during Game 5 of the NLDS, but also warmed up four times in the bullpen prior to doing so, throwing over 100 pitches in total. While the Mets would like to have him on the hill for Game 2 of the series, it will all depend on how he is feeling on Saturday. If he's unable to go, Steven Matz would get the ball in Game 2 with Jacob deGrom penciled in for Game 3.
Oct 17 - 10:13 AM

Mets manager Terry Collins said that he'll wait to see how Noah Syndergaard feels on Saturday before penciling him in to start Game 2 of the NLCS Sunday.

Syndergaard threw one inning of relief in Game 5 of the NLDS Thursday but Collins estimated that the righty tossed around 100 pitches total when including all the times he warmed up. If Syndergaard proves to be too sore, he'll be pushed back to Game 3 and Steven Matz will get the ball in Game 2. Matt Harvey is starting Game 1 on Saturday.
Oct 16 - 4:23 PM

Noah Syndergaard struck out two in a scoreless inning of relief in Thursday's NLDS Game 5 win over the Dodgers.

Tasked with getting the lead from Jacob deGrom to Jeurys Familia, Syndergaard came out firing in his first MLB relief appearance. The right-hander regularly hit 100 mph and blew away Howie Kendrick and Corey Seager before issuing a walk to Adrian Gonzalez. Syndergaard rebounded to retire Justin Turner to end the threat. The appearance likely means Syndergaard won't be the Mets' starter for Game 1 of the NLCS against the Cubs, but Mets manager Terry Collins should provide some insight on his rotation plans in the next day.
Oct 15 - 11:24 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins downplayed the possibility of Noah Syndergaard pitching in relief in Game 5 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Thursday.

Syndergaard is available, but he hasn't pitched in relief in his career and Collins is hesitant about throwing him into the fire in a high-pressure situation. In a perfect world, Collins will get eight innings out of Jacob deGrom before handing the ball to closer Jeurys Familia, but he might have to make some tough choices.
Oct 15 - 4:44 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Tuesday that Noah Syndergaard was "pretty sore" after his Game 2 start and will not be available in relief for Game 4.

The soreness doesn't sound at this point like anything that would keep Syndergaard from starting in the NLCS if the Mets make it, but he can probably be ruled out for another NLDS appearance. Collins also noted that Matt Harvey will not pitch in relief should there be a Game 5.
Oct 13 - 4:13 PM

Noah Syndergaard was charged with six hits and three runs in 6 1/3 innings with four walks and nine strikeouts Saturday in the Mets’ Game 2 loss to the Dodgers.

Syndergaard dominated the first few frames on the strength of his 100 mph fastball but he lost his effectiveness as the game went on, eventually leaving with two runners on base in the seventh inning. He was one away from tying his career high in pitches (116) when Terry Collins finally yanked him. New York’s bullpen didn’t do Thor any favors. Bartolo Colon failed to record an out while Addison Reed proceeded to allow back-to-back doubles to Adrian Gonzalez and Justin Turner. It's unclear when we'll see Syndergaard again as he's not scheduled to make another start this series.
Oct 11 - 1:03 AM

Mets special assistant to the general manager JP Ricciardi confirmed Sunday that Noah Syndergaard will start Game 2 of the NLDS against the Dodgers.

It was reported last week that Matt Harvey would likely be held back for Game 3 as the Mets look to keep his workload down, so Syndergaard is the obvious choice to follow Jacob deGrom. Steven Matz (back) will get the ball in Game 4 as long as he's healthy, otherwise the Mets will go with Bartolo Colon.
Oct 4 - 10:51 AM

Noah Syndergaard struck out 10 batters over seven innings of one-run ball in a no-decision against the Nationals on Saturday.

The only damage was a solo homer from Clint Robinson in his final inning of work. Syndergaard has looked dominant over his last two starts and will finish his rookie season with a 3.24 ERA and 166/31 K/BB ratio in 150 innings over 24 starts. He's expected to start Game 2 of the NLDS against the Dodgers.
Oct 3 - 4:19 PM

Noah Syndergaard struck out 11 batters and allowed two runs over 7 2/3 innings in a 12-5 win over the Reds on Friday.

Both runs scored in the eighth inning. Syndergaard dominated for most of the night, retiring 16 batters in a row at one point. He allowed just five hits while walking just one batter. He had 19 swinging strikes while throwing 74 out of 104 pitches for strikes. The rookie right-hander picked up just his second win on the road this season and now sits at 9-7 with a 3.34 ERA. He'll make a postseason tuneup next week against the Nationals.
Sep 25 - 11:27 PM

Noah Syndergaard yielded five runs in six innings Saturday in a loss to the Yankees.

He only made two mistakes, but they were big ones, as Carlos Beltran launched a three-run homer in the first inning and Brian McCann took him deep for a two-run shot in the sixth. The five runs allowed were the most he has given up at Citi Field. Syndergaard struck out eight and walked none in the loss. He'll try to rebound next week against the Reds.
