Syndergaard, 20, is 2-3 in 11 starts with a 2.81 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 57 2/3 innings. He was acquired by the Mets in the offseason in a trade involving Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey.
Rivera, 24, is batting .297 with 13 doubles and 25 RBIs in 51 games. He hit a combined .320 with nine home runs and 66 RBIs in stints with St. Lucie and the South Atlantic League’s Savannah Sand Gnats last season.
Lawley, 24, is batting .242 with 11 home runs, 16 doubles and 40 RBIs in 54 games. Lawley ranks third in the FSL in home runs, fourth in RBIs, second in extra-base hits and fifth in total bases.
Rivera is fast becoming one of my favorite hitting prospects in the system. His gritty play and intensity is trumped only by his all-around talent and skill set...
