Mets prospect RHP Noah Syndergaard allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits in four innings on Monday in his season debut for Triple-A Las Vegas.
The right-hander fanned two batters and walked one in the outing, throwing 37 of 54 pitches for strikes. Syndergaard had his original start pushed back several days due to concerns regarding forearm stiffness he experienced during spring training, and he was expected to be on a 60-pitch limit on Monday. After an up-and-down spring in big league camp, the 22-year-old Syndergaard, one of the game’s top pitching prospects, will bide his time in Triple-A until there’s an opening in the Mets’ starting rotation. However, his injury status definitely is worth monitoring moving forward. Apr 14 - 1:33 PM

Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard (forearm) will be limited to 60 pitches in his Triple-A Las Vegas debut on Monday.

Syndergaard started to feel forearm soreness during spring training and the team is being rightfully cautious with the prospect. As of now, the injury isn't considered serious, but his progress in the minors is worth monitoring. Baseball America ranked Syndergaard as the #11 prospect in baseball coming into the 2015 season.

Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard will not make his season debut for Triple-A Las Vegas until their fifth game due to a forearm issue.

Syndergaard apparently dealt with some forearm stiffness during spring training. Manager Terry Collins said the club is just being cautious, so there doesn't appear to be any worry here. Still, it will be interesting to track how Syndergaard performs in the early going.

Mets optioned RHP Noah Syndergaard to Triple-A Las Vegas.

The Mets had a rotation spot open up with the injury to Zack Wheeler (elbow), but Syndergaard was never in the running for it. It does potentially open the door for him to be promoted sooner, however. The top prospect allowed four runs but struck out nine over 7 1/3 innings this spring.
Mar 20 - 4:18 PM

Noah Syndergaard surrendered two runs and three hits in 2 2/3 innings of relief Monday against the Red Sox.

Syndergaard has moved up the Mets' depth chart with the Zach Wheeler news, but he's still probably the Mets' seventh starter behind Dillon Gee in the fifth spot and Rafael Montero. Of course, it's highly unlikely that the Mets are finished suffering pitcher injuries.
Mar 16 - 4:35 PM

Top prospect Noah Syndergaard struck out five in 2 2/3 scoreless innings of relief Wednesday against the Marlins.

Syndergaard couldn't quite make it through three with his pitch count, but it was still a great outing for him. A single was the only hit he surrendered, and he walked none.
Mar 11 - 4:50 PM

Noah Syndergaard allowed two runs in two innings of relief Friday against the Tigers.

Syndergaard looked very good in his first inning after picking up for Matt Harvey, but he was equally shaky in the second, and he ended up throwing 44 pitches on the day, an abnormally high total for a pitcher's first appearance of the spring. Syndergaard has absolutely no chance of making the Mets this spring, but he does want to impress and stay ahead of some of the other options to be potentially called on as injury replacements this summer.
Mar 6 - 5:26 PM

Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard is "in play" in trade talks.

The Mets are known to be looking at shortstop help and it sounds like they'd be willing to part with Syndergaard to get it. The 22-year-old right-hander had a disappointing 2014 season, posting a 4.60 ERA with 145 strikeouts over 133 frames in his first taste of Triple-A, but he remains one of the better pitching prospects in the game.

Mets purchased the contract of RHP Noah Syndergaard from Triple-A Las Vegas.

He's now protected from the Rule 5 Draft. Syndergaard disappointed in 2014, holding a 4.60 ERA with 145 strikeouts over 133 frames in his first taste of Triple-A. Still, he's only 22 and remains one of the best pitching prospects in the game.

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.

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.
Mon, Aug 11, 2014 12:32:00 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.
Sat, Aug 2, 2014 12:28:00 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.
