MLB.com has begun released there annual 2015 prospect rankings. Yesterday, the Top right handed prospects were announced, and to no one's surprise, Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard was on the list. What was surprising, however, was that Syndergaard has moved up from the 3rd overall RHP to 2nd passing Arizona's Archie Bradley and ranking only behind the Nationals Lucas Giolito.
"A big, strong classic power right-hander, Syndergaard combines plus fastball velocity with outstanding command and control. He can crank his fastball up to 98 mph and will run it in on right-handed hitters. Syndergaard will add and subtract from his curve, giving hitters different looks. His changeup improved in 2014, giving him a third above-average offering. He's always been around the plate, having walked just 2.6 per nine innings through the 2014 season while striking out 10. He's a good athlete and repeats his delivery well, throwing downhill consistently from his 6-foot-6 frame."
