NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The Mets believe that Noah Syndergaard has a significant chance of reaching the majors as early as June 2014, according to the New York Daily News.

Syndergaard has yet to pitch in Triple-A. He split time with the Single-A St. Lucie Mets and Double-A Binghampton Mets in 2013. Once Syndergaard arrived in Binghamton, he went 6-1 with a 3.00 ERA in 11 appearances. The 6-foot-6 hurler is currently ranked No. 12 on the MLB’s top 100 prospect list.

It appears that Matt Harvey’s injury has only accelerated Syndergaard’s fast-track to the majors. The Mets have reportedly been reluctant to include the 21-year-old righthander in trade talks to address their need for an outfield power bat.

In four minor league seasons combined with the Mets and Blue Jays organizations, Syndergaard is 22-12 with a 2.64 ERA. He’s racked up 329 strikeouts in 293.2 innings pitched. He was acquired by the Mets on December 12, 2012 when the Amazin’s dealt R.A. Dickey, Josh Thole, and Mike Nickeas to the Blue Jays for Syndergaard, Travis d’Arnaud, John Buck and Wuilmer Becerra.

Syndergaard appeared at the 2013 All-Star Futures Game in Citi Field. Perhaps he’ll be ready to take the mound at Citi Field on a full-time basis near the midway point of the 2014 season.
