Syndergaard tossed 5.2 scoreless innings in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros, allowing two hits and two walks while striking out five.
Thor continues to hammer the opposition, and Syndergaard now boasts a 19:7 K:BB through 14.1 spring innings to go along with a 1.88 ERA. Jacob deGrom remains the Mets' No. 1 starter, but if Syndergaard can stay healthy in 2019, he's just as capable of putting together a Cy Young-caliber campaign.
Syndergaard struck out eight over four innings in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins, allowing four runs (three earned) on six hits without a walk.
The impact on his ERA wasn't ideal, but the key takeaway was Thor's impressive display of dominance. The right-hander now boasts a 14:5 K:BB through only 8.2 spring innings, and Syndergaard is on course to be more than ready to take his initial turn as the Mets' No. 2 starter.
Syndergaard walked five batters but struck out four and allowed just an unearned run over 2.2 innings in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros.
He had trouble locating his fastball in his second start of the spring, but when he did get the ball in the zone Syndergaard was still overmatching a Houston lineup that included Jose Altuve, George Springer, Alex Bregman and other likely Opening Day starters. The right-hander still has plenty of time to settle in before the games begin to count, as Thor looks to stay healthy and improve on last season's 25 starts and 9.0 K/9.
