Mets RHP pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard threw his first bullpen session since being traded for R.A. Dickey…
In regards to Syndergaard, who checks in at No. 10 on this year’s list, Mayo says: ”He was sent to the Mets in the Dickey trade and could end up being the best player in the deal, though it may take more time for him to develop.”
In early December, MinorLeagueBall.com’s John Sickels said Syndergaard is ahead of where Wheeler was at age 20, as he already has a strong sinking fastball, good changeup, solid command, good body, good makeup, and strong sabermetric profile.

I bet Sandy Alderson fantasizes about winning a World Series in the next five years with a rotation of Jon Niese, Harvey, Wheeler, Syndergaard and Dillon Gee, all home grown, all under team control. And if one of them, or one of Michael Fulmer, Domingo Tapia, Luis Mateo or Rafael Montero, etc., fails or doesn’t step up, he can sign a free agent or two to fill in (considering David Wright and Niese are the only players on the current roster signed to long-term deals).
