Noah Syndergaard made his Double-A debut today

The other guy acquired in the R.A. Dickey trade started against Erie today after being promoted from Port St. Lucie on Saturday.

Although news first broke of Noah Syndergaard's promotion to Double-A Binghamton on Saturday afternoon, he was quickly penciled in as the B-Mets' starter on Sunday. Syndergaard just flew into Binghamton last night, but that didn't stop him from being pretty darn effective in his Double-A debut.

Syndergaard pitched six innings today and struck out seven batters while walking just one. He allowed two runs and five hits and left the game with a 6-2 lead over Erie.

Those figures are encouragingly right in line with what Syndergaard was doing at Single-A St. Lucie this season. He struck out 64 batters in 63 innings with just 16 walks and a 3.11 ERA in the Florida State League.

Last night, Binghamton catcher Xorge Carillo seemed pretty excited about the arrival of Syndergaard.

"Obviously his fastball is pretty good," said B-Mets catcher Xorge Carrillo, who caught Syndergaard this season in St. Lucie. "He sits 94 to 98 (miles per hour). He's a big boy. He's got a huge frame, really good curveball.

"The curveball is probably his best strikeout pitch. He'll mix in a slider and a change-up. He's a two-seamer that sits 90 to 94 (miles per hour). His command has gotten better. I think that's the only thing he needs to work on, but his stuff is just - it's pretty good stuff."

For at least one day, that stuff has held up against tougher competition, and that's good news for the future of the Mets. Dickey be praised.
