Noah Syndergaard, the 6’6’’, blonde haired hurler and pride of the Mets farm system climbed onto the rubber at Citi Field and gave Mets fans a brief glimpse into the future Sunday afternoon. The pop of catcher Austin Hedges’ glove could clearly be heard in the Pepsi Porch as Syndergaard warmed up prior to his first appearance at Citi Field. His pre-game warm-up translated into the game, reaching 93-97 mph on the radar gun, according to Keith Law on twitter. Syndergaard, 20, stood out among his peers on the United States roster in the 2013 futures game, before impressing onlookers with his repertoire on the mound. Syndergaard pitched one inning, striking out one and giving up a single. A key piece of the R.A. Dickey trade this off-season, Syndergaard has risen to the top of the top of the Mets' prospect rankings after the promotion of pitcher Zack Wheeler and the injury of catcher Travis d’Arnaud. Baseball America has Syndergaard ranked as the Mets' top prospect and the 23rd best prospect in baseball. Syndergaard has split time with Single-A St. Lucie and Double-A Binghamton this season, posting a combined 2.69 ERA, 1.183 WHIP, 9.70 K/9 and a 4.50 K/BB. Syndergaard will likely play the rest of the season at Double-A Binghamton. There is a good chance he gets shut down at some point this season as he is already at 83.2 innings after pitching just 103.2 innings last season. The level of success he will have the rest of this year will determine where he starts next year, but don’t be surprised if he starts next season at Double-A and is promoted to Triple-A shortly after if he continues to dominate. A late 2014 or opening day 2015 debut are likely in his future. Look out for more Future game posts later today and for the rest of the week. You Can Follow Me on Twitter @danny_ss
