Noah Syndergaard returns from the DL

Mets RHP prospect Noah Syndergaard returned from the disabled list and tossed four innings Monday night for Triple-A Las Vegas.

He allowed four runs and seven hits, walked one and struck out three batters, while adhering to a 75-pitch limit.

If I had to guess, I’d bet on us seeing Syndergaard on the Mets at some point in late July, early August. The silver lining to missing time in June, is that he’ll be able to pitch deeper in to this season, since the organization is going to limit his innings. I think eight-or-so starts at the big-league level is realistic, assuming Sandy Alderson feels Syndergaard is ready to make the move. I’ve heard team insiders say he needs more time pitching in Triple-A before facing big-league hitters. However, at the same time, it can only be helpful to know what Syndergaard is capable of when revisiting the rotation for 2015.

They said the same about Harvey. He came up and started to learn. If you remember he was not 5-0 but 2-3? 

If healthy, bring him up-unless he's one of the guys you are going to trade?

Mets always wanted a no hitter, now they got a team that can't hit. Total garbage for this city.

Why does everyone assume he'll be up this year?  He's been getting pounded in AAA and the Mets don't need starting pitching at the moment, they have plenty to keep them in the hunt for fourth place.  He is only 21 and probably needs the entire year at AAA.  Let him get his innings up so he isn't limited when he gets here.  He can start over next year in ST and make the starting rotation in 2015 if he is even ready then.

Several minor injuries already this season. Not a good sign. Let's see him have a few good starts in Vegas.

No rush. The Mets are going nowhere, and have enough starting pitching for now, so let this guy get his time in Triple-A if he needs it. I'm probably in the minority here -- as we were all excited to see Zack Wheeler last year-- but I think Wheeler would have benefited from a few more starts in the minors before being called up.

Call him up when he's ready.  If that's July or August, great.  If its next year, that's fine too.

It would would nice to see him have some success at AAA and actually earn the call-up.

Why bring him up when he is not pitching well.

Gee will be back and DeGrom has earned a spot for more time.

So what you're saying Cerrone is to expect to see Syndergaard on the Mets right after they trade Colon and/or Gee to cut payroll even further

They held Harvey down until he had over 100 innings before coming up. Lets have Noah get there and then talk about coming up. He needs to put together some quality starts without getting smacked around before he has earned a trip to the bigs.

@nhmetsfan sometimes thats what some guys need, the big challenge. Agree with Turtured Mets fan who speculates that he may be bored.


That said during SP Thor impressed me but i noticed his fastball was very straight and batters just started to time it… Starting pitching is not really the mets problem right now so if Thor needs more seasoning that's fine with me.  


we need bats bats bats now…thor and the kids are going to be fine

@Tortured Mets Fan That's ridiculous, He's barely gotten any starts.  How could a kid who has had two injuries already be bored?  He should be pitching for his professional life.  That thought was based on some idiotic notion from when Harvey was mediocre at AAA.
