Which pitchers has Sandy Alderson actually drafted or signed?

What do Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, and Steven Matz all have in common? Besides the fact that they are all on the Mets, none of them have actually been drafted by Sandy Alderson. Matz was drafted by Omar Minaya in one of the deepest left-handed starting pitching drafts ever (2009), Harvey and deGrom were part of the last draft class by Minaya ...

Noah Syndergaard’s debut an up and down affair

Yesterday Noah Syndergaard threw what he and manager Terry Collins considered his finest major league game to date. It’s hard to argue. He cruised through eight innings, walking none and striking out five, while needing only 89 pitches to do it. He touched 98 mph as late as the eighth inning and used his off-speed pitches very effectively. It was quite the performance. Of course...

A First Look at Steven Matz

The Mets have an embarrassment of riches in their starting rotation. Jacob deGrom has seemingly become one of the best pitchers in baseball, and Matt Harvey has pitched very well in his first half-season since returning from injury.

NY Post: Mets Have Discussed Moving Syndergaard To Bullpen

According to New York Post reporter Mike Puma, the Mets have, over the past few days, discussed moving Noah Syndergaard to the bullpen to make room for Steven Matz in the rotation.

Syndergaard Struggles Against Giants, Says Bad Luck Was a Factor

Last night’s outing was a frustrating one for Mets’ phenom Noah Syndergaard. While he appeared to have outstanding stuff, the Giants were able to scratch out four runs and ten hits against him.

Just one thing standing between Noah Syndergaard and dominance

Mets rookie pitcher Noah Syndergaard seemingly has all the making of a future ace. He’s young, healthy and 11-feet tall with a golden arm. He can throw a marshmallow through a battleship and drop a hammer that make a batter’s knees buckle. He’s also got a solid changeup and surprisingly good control.  Unlike a lot of rookies, he limits his walks. When Noah gets in trouble...
