Noah Syndergaard walked three batters in three innings Saturday. He let up two hits and two runs – due in large part to an Eric Young Jr. fielding error – while striking out three and hitting 98 mph with his fastball.
“I know the results really didn’t show better, but I feel like I was way more confident in my fastball command today,” Syndergaard said after the game. “I take these games seriously, but I still have to go out there and work on things I need to improve on in the season.”
Sandy Alderson essentially told reporters on Saturday that, although there is always a chance, it is very unlikely Syndergaard starts the year with the big-league team.
