With Spring Training just 2 weeks in, the Mets have had plenty to get excited about, as several individuals have played exceptionally well.
The Mets’ 5-9 record puts them last in the Grapefruit league, but individual performances are much more important to monitor this time of year. Here’s whether we’re buying into the spring training hype, or selling on the brief success these players might have before the regular season.
Noah Syndergaard has been a great source of excitement this spring, especially after a torn right lat forced him to miss almost all of 2017. Syndergaard has pitched three times, totaling 8.1 innings pitched, and a filthy 1.08 ERA. Thor has also accumulated 13 strikeouts, including an absurd 7 straight versus the Nationals on Thursday. Expect Noah to put this lat injury behind him and continue terrorizing National League hitters.
