MLB.com is rolling out their 2014 Prospect Watch and can you guess who ranked No. 3 among righthanded pitchers?
Noah Syndergaard, RHP
Scouting Grades: Fastball: 70 | Curveball: 60 | Changeup: 55 | Control: 60 | Overall: 65
After being dealt to the Mets in the R.A. Dickey deal in December 2012, Noah Syndergaard made a splash in his first season in his new organization. He reached Double-A Binghamton and started the Futures Game at Citi Field for the U.S. team.
Syndergaard is a classic power right-hander and uses his big frame to throw downhill and induce ground balls. His fastball regularly reaches 98 mph and runs inside on right-handed hitters. His 12-to-6 curveball is his best secondary pitch, though his changeup has the potential to be a third plus pitch in his arsenal. He has excellent command and posted a 4.75 K-to-BB ratio in 2013.
Here are their Top 10 RHP Prospects:
I’m loving the attention Syndergaard is getting… Blue Jays fans must be seething over this…
By the way… MLB also released their Top 10 Shortstop Prospects and the Mets had none of theirs crack the list.
