yeah but really hes on a very similar projection to wheeler
wheeler threw 59 innings in 2010, 115 in 2011, 150 in 2012, and will likely be permitted to throw about 180 this year b/t AAA and the majors
syndergaard threw 59 in 2011, & 103 last year...i mean, if you really follow the example of wheeler, he could theoretically pitch as early as early-mid 2014 if they really want to keep him out of vegas (assuming we are stuck there) though I highly doubt that they would do that (nor should they)
his whip was high b/c of walks, which has become less of a problem for him
the guy routinely strikes out 1+ batters per inning and doesnt surrender hits...he has certainly not disappointed thus far
there is a reason that hes going to be rated as a top prospect this yeear
<<"Braves didn't do it with Heyward. Sometimes you just have to break camp with your future. "
The Angels sent Trout down to start the year and the Nats sent Harper down. Both players won Rookie of the Year. It's a long season and at some point things always come down to money.
When Heyward played all season, the Braves situation was completely different than the Mets. The Braves were competing for a playoff position, the Mets are not. If Heyward influenced 2-3 games during the month, it could have been a difference maker - playoff appearances mean big money, so once again, it probably comes down to money.
If d'Arnaud is responsible for 2-3 extra wins for the Mets in April/early May, what does that mean? 77 wins vs 74 wins?
