Apparently, Noah Syndergaard was watching Zack Wheeler‘s start last night and he wanted to one-up him. Well, he didn’t strike out a dozen, but I think we’ll all take ten over five innings. Syndergaard has now strung together three straight outings of five shutout innings while allowing no more than three baserunners in each start.
Take that in for a minute… Noah Syndergaard has now tossed 15.0 straight shutout innings over three starts and has allowed only three baserunners in each of those starts. His final line today:
5.0 IP, 3 H, 0 BB, 0 ER, 10 K
At this point, it seems pretty safe to ignore what Keith Law says about Thor… The more Syndergaard pitches in Double-A, the more he practically owns the entire league. Need some more numerical proof? Here are his combined numbers over his last nine starts: 5-0, 1.76 ERA, 46.0 IP, 34 H, 10 BB, 54 K, .205 BAA.
Syndergaard is an extremely exciting prospect to cover… I fully expected five shutout innings from him today even before he starte...
