Mets Merized Online:
MLB Trade Rumors posted their 2013 All-Prospect All Star Team for the 2013 season and Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard was their top starting pitcher.
Starting Pitcher: Noah Syndergaard, Mets – Jameson Taillon (Pirates), Kevin Gausman(Orioles) and Robert Stephenson (Reds) also received consideration as the one of the top pitchers in the minors but the final spot went to the Mets’ prospect. Syndergaard showed a rare combination of power (his fastball can tickle triple digits) and control when he struck out 133 batters in 117 2/3 innings and issued 28 free passes. Just 20, the Texas native finished the year with 11 starts at the Double-A level.
According to MLBTR, the players were chosen by considering a mixture of future potential and statistical results.

Trenton 6, Binghamton 5
Oh, this sucks…Last night, the Kingsport Mets lost when they had a lead with one out to go…and the Binghamton Mets unfortunately suffered the same fate.
Noah Syndergaard had a chance to redeem himself after a bad start by starting Game One of the playoffs for the Binghamton Mets. Thor delivered, firing six innings and allowing three runs, while striking...
There’s an old adage: There is always a right man for the job. Three years ago when the Mets were poised to begin a long rebuild, Terry Collins was that man. By nature he appears patient and supportive. Exactly the type of guy you might want at the helm if you were going to fill the roster with inexperience youngsters trying to find their place in Major League Baseball.
New York Mets left-hander Scott Rice, who leads the majors with 73 appearances, will have sports hernia surgery and miss the remainder of the season.
The 31-year-old Rice finally reached the majors this season after spending 14 years in the minor leagues. He's 4-5 with a 3.71 ERA and has held left-handed batters to a .174 average with one home run in 121 at-bats. In 51 innings...
With pitchers Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, and Noah Syndergaard rising through the minor leagues and dominating along the way, the hype surrounding those at the top has blocked out some of the performances of lesser-known prospects, even with a fanbase as critical and attentive as the Mets’. Last week, Vinny took a look at some of the most underrated hitters in the Met system. Let’s...
Zack Wheeler labored through five innings and the New York Mets offense was shut down against a dominant Scott Kazmir in an 8-1 loss Friday night to Cleveland.
Wheeler (7-4) got the first road loss of his career, giving up three runs (two earned) and five hits.
He struck out three and walked five, which tied a career high. The short night broke Wheeler's streak of five consecutive...
There was something Sandy Alderson said during his interview on WFAN on Tuesday that made me laugh. When Mike Francesa brought up how well Dillon Gee had been pitching, the Mets GM responded:
“I told Dillon after his last game, remember what I told you two months ago: The other guys are getting the headlines, and you’re getting the wins.”
In his team-leading and career-high...
The Mets look to salvage the third game of their series against the Braves behind Dillon Gee this afternoon at Turner Field. First pitch is scheduled for 12:10 p.m.

For baseball professionals and amateurs across the globe, the dream is to reach the major leagues, and every single year, there are dreams fulfilled that belong to players I’ve never heard of before. Like most baseball writers, I know something about most players, but there are a lot of players, and I have only so […]
For the eighth time this season, the Indians were able to come from behind in a three game series to win it, as they disposed of their last true challenge of the year against Baltimore. The Indians will face a much weaker foe next, in the New York Mets, but that doesn't mean they can take things easy.
The Mets are without their ace and NL All-Star starting pitcher, Matt Harvey...
Scott Kazmir once was in Zack Wheeler's position - considered one of the top pitching prospects for the New York Mets and a big piece of the franchise's future.
Traded in a lopsided deal that prevented him from ever donning a Mets uniform, Kazmir gets his first chance to face the team that drafted him when the playoff-hopeful Cleveland Indians host Wheeler and New York on...
