Plawecki, Syndergaard to play in MLB Futures Game

Prospects RHP Noah Syndergaard and C Kevin Plawecki will be the Mets’ representatives at the All-Star Futures Game on All-Star Sunday in Minnesota, Major League baseball announced today.

Syndergaard started the game last year for Team USA. The righty has a 4.98 ERA and a 6-4 record in 13 starts with Triple-A Las Vegas this year.

This is Plawecki‘s first Futures Game. He’s hitting .326/.378/.486 with Double-A Binghamton this year. He may be promoted to Triple-A soon, given Travis d’Arnaud‘s return to the Major League club (MetsBlog, June 23.)

Last year, Syndergaard played in the game with pitcher Rafael Montero and outfielder Brandon Nimmo. 

The game is at Target Field on July 13 at 4pm CT.

How does a player with an ERA nearly 5.00 play in an All Star Game?

Having Chris Young play CF instead of Kirk helps to prove my opinion that Collins does not want Kirk to succeed.

Even money Syndergaard pulls something. And I know it's early but can we persuade these guys NOT to play in the World Baseball Classic.

CY and Tejada should never be in the same lineup. We can't score and loose almost every time it is done. Wonder what Terry sees that the world doesn't.

CY and Reubum in lineup tonight, unwatchable

No Dilson Herrera, huh? He may be the biggest surprise of the minors in a couple years. He's been killing the ball

syndergaard's performance thus far in 2014 doesn't warrant the appearance. his appearance is all about potential and his high prospect ranking. 


it's also horrendous to have an AAA team in that climate. so counterproductive. but the mets don't know what they are doing.

@Albert E Lewis Think Lebron is any good at baseball? I would take my chances with him in the outfield over C-BUM

@wilpondscm  The Mets don't want a AAA team  in Vegas. They got stuck with a AAA team in Vegas when Buffalo decided to affiliate with Toronto.

CY is actually hitting righties better this yr. Not like that is saying much. .162/.319/.216 vs lefties. woo hoo
