RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Thor established himself as the Mets' ace fairly early in his sophomore season, improving upon nearly all of his rookie metrics en route to leading all qualified starters with a 2.29 FIP. His elbow was examined in May, and in late June he was pulled from a start and it was revealed that he was dealing with a bone spur in his elbow. Syndergaard posted a 3.10 ERA and 108:31 K:BB in 92.2 innings after the diagnosis, compared to a 2.08 ERA and 110:12 K:BB in 91 innings prior, so it is possible that his control was negatively affected, although he still pitched like an ace. Surgery to remove the bone spur was deemed unnecessary in the offseason. Syndergaard still boasts two filthy pitches in his 98 mph fastball and 91 mph slider, so he should be one of the top five pitchers off the board heading into his age-24 season. The next hurdle for the best young pitcher in baseball will be to eclipse the 200-inning mark for the first time in his career.
"Thor" made his much-anticipated debut on May 12, and from Day 1, he was every bit as advertised. Using a fastball that averaged over 97 mph -- the highest ever recorded for a starting pitcher in a season with a minimum of 100 IP (according to FanGraphs) -- a curveball, a changeup, and a rarely-used slider, Syndergaard struck batters out at a 27.5% clip while issuing just 31 free passes in 150 regular-season innings. The 23-year-old had an above-average groundball rate, but the balls that got up did some damage -- his inflated HR/FB rate was really his only blemish. It's rare that you find a pitcher with Syndergaard's overpowering stuff and great control, the latter being the product of a remarkably clean, repeatable delivery. His talent is not in question, and after he tossed 179.2 combined innings between Triple-A Las Vegas and the majors last season, neither is his 2016 workload. Invest with confidence.
The big right-hander enters 2015 as the top pitching prospect in the minor leagues, and a borderline top-5 overall prospect. A lot was made of Syndergaard’s “struggles” at Triple-A Las Vegas in 2014, but a 4.60 ERA pitching in some of the most hitter-friendly conditions in the minor leagues is not nearly as bad as it looks. He fell victim to a .378 BABIP and still posted a quality 145:43 K:BB ratio in 133 innings. His second-half numbers (3.54 ERA and 63 strikeouts in 53.1 innings) were particularly impressive for a 21-year-old in the Pacific Coast League. At 6-foot-6, 240 pounds, he is equipped to handle 200-plus inning seasons, and the Mets have said he will have a generous 185-190 innings cap on his age-22 season. The biggest question is where he will fit in the rotation. With Jacob deGrom’s emergence and Matt Harvey’s return, the Mets easily go five deep, so Syndergaard may begin 2015 back in Las Vegas awaiting a June callup.
Syndergaard, who was traded to the Mets along with Travis d'Arnaud for R.A. Dickey, has surpassed d'Arnaud as the Mets' top prospect. Syndergaard went 9-4 with a 3.06 ERA, a 1.15 WHIP and 10.2 K/9 rate in 23 starts between High-A St. Lucie and Double-A Binghamton and also started the Futures Game for Team USA. He has a mid-90s fastball that bears in hard on righties and mixes in a 12-to-6 hard-biting curveball, and but his changeup is still a major work in progress. Syndergaard should follow the same path as fellow top prospects Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler the past two years; beginning the year at Triple-A before receiving a summer call-up. Syndergaard projects to be a No. 2 or No. 3 starter, but his ceiling may hinge on the development of his changeup.
After a brief taste in 2011, Syndergaard pitched the entire season at Low-A Lansing. Throwing 103.2 innings, he recorded a 2.60 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP and had 122 strikeouts against only 31 walks. Just 20 years old, the 6-foot-5 right-hander will likely be brought along slowly by the Mets despite a very high ceiling. In addition to missing bats at an elite clip, Syndergaard surrendered just three homers in his first full professional season and does a good job of getting many of his contact outs on the ground. Look for him to spend most of the next two seasons in the minors refining his secondary pitches before getting onto the radar in New York in late 2014 or early 2015.
