New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard was sent to minor league camp Tuesday, March 18. He'll start at Triple-A Las Vegas for some more seasoning. The team also re-assigned Ps Rafael Montero, Joel Carreno, Ryan Reid, Cory Mazzoni and Miguel Socolovich, 1Bs Brandon Allen and Matt Clark and C Juan Centeno.
Fantasy Tip: As DiComo notes, Syndergaard, the club's top pitching prospect, is expected to follow a similar path to the bigs that Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler had, which would put his arrival in New York around sometime in June. That would keep Syndergaard from achieving Super 2 arbitration status. He should be firmly on the radar of those in NL-only and keeper leagues.

New York Mets C John Buck could be put on the three-day paternity list later this week with his wife expecting the couple's child Thursday, Aug. 1. Manager Terry Collins said C Travis d'Arnaud could be called up if Buck has to leave the team. However, if they don't want to rush d'Arnaud, Cs Francisco Pena and Juan Centeno are other options. If d'Arnaud is brought up, he'd only be around until Buck returns, though. D'Arnaud has played six Gulf Coast League games since returning from a broken foot.
Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud should only be owned in deep NL-only leagues or keeper formats. His foot injury basically robbed him of any fantasy baseball value this season. Next year is a different story, though, as he should make his way onto mixed league rosters as the team's primary catcher.
