Mets general manager discusses Noah Syndergaard’s frustrations with pitching to Wilson Ramos
Noah Syndergaard does not seem happy with the Mets.
The 27-year-old right-hander has been frustrated with the team all season and was livid when Wilson Ramos was scheduled to catch his start Sunday, according to a report from the New York Post, which cites unidentified league sources. While he has “no personal animus” toward Ramos, Syndergaard has asked to throw to a different catcher multiple times this season and met with the coaching staff, along with management, to express his displeasure last weekend, the report says.
Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen addressed the report during a press conference before the team’s series opener against the Diamondbacks.
“Noah has expressed his issues with his comfortability with throwing to Wilson,” Van Wagenen said, via SNY. “I respect him for sharing those feelings. We listened to him. He understands our thought process that we might have him throwing to other catchers throughout the course of the season. We’ll continue to evaluate that on a day by day basis and do what gives us the best chance to win. Every game counts right now.”
