Noah Syndergaard Named Eastern League Pitcher of the Week

Updated by Matt Musico

Noah Syndergaard continues to show he can handle the competition up in Double-A. While at the MLB Futures Game earlier this month, the tall right-hander said he had two personal goals this season: to make it to the Futures Game and get promoted to Double-A by the end of the season. He’s already done both, and his stock is rising with each start for the B-Mets.

In two starts this week, Thor went 2-0 in 11 innings pitched, allowing just three runs on five hits, one walk, and 15 strikeouts. He allowed a solo home run yesterday in a six-inning, one-hit performance which you can read more about from Joe D. below.

That’s a pretty good week, especially after having a more “human” outing immediately before that on July 17th (5 IP, 3 ER, 7 H, 3 BB, 5 K).

MMN’s top prospect is now 4-0 since being promoted from High-A St. Lucie, and boasts a 2.26 ERA with 46 strikeouts and only eight walks in 36 innings pitched.

He’s on the cusp of reaching a new career-high for innings; he’s currently at 99.2 frames between St. Lucie and Binghamton, which is just shy of the 103.2 innings he threw last season with Dunedin.

The Binghamton Mets beat the Trenton Thunder by the score of 6-1 tonight at NYSEG Stadium.

Noah Syndergaard started and was nearly perfect in his six innings of work. His only blemish was one solitary hit, but it was a home run by Trenton center fielder Slade Heathcott. He walked none in the game and struck out eight batters while tossing 47 of his 59 pitches for strikes. Pretty freaking awesome…

Syndergaard improved to 4-0 in seven starts since his promotion last month to Double-A and has a sparkling 2.25 ERA for the B-Mets with 46 strikeouts and just eight walks in 36 innings pitched.



By the way, Cesar Puello went 3-for-4 in the game with two runs scored, a double and an RBI. Puello is now batting .334 for the season with a .969 OPS in 316 at-bats. MMO has learned that he will NOT be promoted to Triple-A and will remain in Binghamton for the remainder of the season.
