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.

The New York Mets will consider RP Cory Mazzoni for a roster spot as a reliever this spring, even though he has started for most of his minor league career. Mazzoni was 5-3 with a 4.36 ERA in 13 outings (12 starts) at Double-A Binghamton last year, and he underwent surgery to fix a torn meniscus last summer. "He's got three 'plus' pitches. He's got a plus fastball. He's got a good slider. And he's got an outstanding split. We saw last year (in the Grapefruit League), the one night he came in he dominated. The next time he couldn't get his split down and they got good swings on him. I know he's been starting in the minor leagues, but he's going to be an interesting guy to look at," manager Terry Collins said.
