Noah Syndergaard took the hill for the St. Lucie Mets tonight, and continued to dominate hitters at the Single-A level. He was bringing 96 mph heat, and mixing in his change-up and curve ball all night. The curve ball was the sharpest it’s looked all year, as he snapped off hook after hook that either left hitters frozen in their stance, or left them swinging wildly like they were trying to hit mosquitoes out of the sky.

Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas had the night off. Binghamton dropped Akron, 9-4. St. Lucie shot themselves in the foot against Brevard County, 4-3. Savannah lost to Charleston, 6-3. Prospect Pipeline Zack Wheeler‘s MRI didn’t show any structural damage, but one has to wonder what could have cause so much inflammation in his throwing shoulder, that he would need a cortisone shot. Hopefully this isn’t a situation where the cortisone masks the pain and [...]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas toppled Round Rock, 6-5. Binghamton was no-hit by and dropped to Harrisburg, 6-1. St. Lucie destroyed Palm Beach, 17-1. Savannah topped Rome, 3-1. Prospect Pipeline Word on the street is that Zack Wheeler could be making his major league debut very soon…like in two more weeks. “Personally, I think if he has a couple of more starts like his last start he’ll be headed to the big leagues, and rightfully [...]
St. Lucie 17, Palm Beach 1 Do not be alarmed…you are not dreaming. This actually did happen. Noah Syndergaard was responsible for stifling the Palm Beach bats with some superb pitching while the St. Lucie offense combined for sixteen hits and a crooked seventeen runs. So let’s give Syndergaard his time in the sun here. This young man seems to be pitching with a chip on his shoulder every time he takes the mound… [...]
Last month, I had the chance to conduct an email interview with John Sickels of the well-known minor league blog, Minor League Ball. Sickels worked for ESPN many years ago, where he had his own column about minor league baseball. Here is some of what we talked about: Q: Were the Mets too conservative with the Gavin Cecchini selection? A: I thought Cecchini was a slight overdraft but I didn’t really think that about Nimmo. By slight, [...]
Welcome to the second edition of Who’s Hot, Who’s Not. This week was a very intriguing one for followers of the Mets minor league system. We saw the rise of two top pitching prospects, and the fall of one who had been absolutely dominant. We also saw Kevin Plawecki continue to show why the Mets made him a first-round pick last year. He leads off our Hot List… Who’s Hot Kevin Plawecki, C (SAV): Plawecki [...]
As the title says, the R.A. Dickey deal just keeps looking better and better for Sandy Alderson and the Mets – and that’s with the signature piece to the deal, Travis d’Arnaud, idling on the disabled list for nearly a month. A post by Josh Chapdelaine of Around Citi brought to my attention just how bad things are going for the reigning Cy Young this season. “The knuckleballer racked up his fifth loss of the [...]

Prospect Pipeline Well, it was a relatively quiet night last night in Mets Minors as all three teams that managed to finish their games lost. Each team did [...]
Fort Myers 6, St. Lucie 0 St. Lucie’s starter Noah Syndergaard was locked in a pitchers’ duel with Fort Myers’ starter Matthew Summers for the majority of this game. Syndergaard fired five scoreless innings to start the game before running into trouble in the sixth. Fort Myers’ third baseman Miguel Sano doubled off Syndergaard, but shortstop T.J. Rivera threw out Eddie Rosario at home plate. The next batter, Kennys Vargas, unfortunately came through for the [...]
Noah Syndergaard accomplished two important things on Sunday. He picked up his first win of the season and he pitched seven innings for the first time in his professional career. That according to Jonathan Raymond who got a chance to get up close to the Mets pitching prospect in his last start. Syndergaard is trying to put that one bad start when he allowed seven runs over three innings completely behind him and he seems [...]
