New York Mets: Nieuwenhuis’s roster spot in jeopardy

Following Monday night’s late game heroics, the Mets have announced an additional roster move. Outfielder Darrell Ceciliani will be called up from Triple-A Las Vegas. Ceciliani is a left hand hitting, defensively focused outfielder that the Mets drafted in the 2009 draft.

Fantasy Roundup: Scouting Lance McCullers’ Debut

With a short slate of games, the most intriguing matchup was the Athletics-Astros game because it was Lance McCullers’ Major League debut. Unlike Noah Syndergaard, McCullers didn’t have the hype or fantasy fanfare, but he’s going to have a chance to stay in the Astros rotation (he’ll at least get one more start), which means he’s going to have fantasy value. The biggest...

Noah Syndergaard is as Advertised

Few MLB rookies not named Kris Bryant have had an MLB debut as anticipated as that of Noah Syndergaard. The tall righthander made his first big league start for the Mets against Bryant and his hometown Cubs last night, and while he tired and was hit around a bit and knocked out of the game in the 6th, he was exactly as advertised:  a hard throwing power arm that should bolster...

Thor’s Hammer: A First Look at Noah Syndergaard

Dillon Gee will miss at least the next couple of weeks with a torn groin, but the Mets aren’t likely to suffer too much in his absence. That’s because they have uber-prospect Noah Syndergaard in the fold, who will step in and replace Gee in the rotation. Syndergaard, 22, will make his major-league debut tonight against the Cubs and figures to hold down […]

New York Mets: last step imminent for prospect Syndergaard

Noah Syndergaard has been called one of the New York Mets’ top prospects ever since they acquired him from the Toronto Blue Jays two years ago. It took some time, but Syndergaard is finally pitching like it too. Ever since he had a start pushed back due to an illness, Syndergaard has been dealing. In his last three outings, Syndergaard has allowed just two runs in 22 innings with...
