Mets RHP prospect Noah Syndergaard rebounded from a difficult six-game stretch to toss seven innings of one-run ball, while striking out eight, in his most recent start with Triple-A Las Vegas.

More than anything, Syndergaard simply needs time and experience to get better, Triple-A pitching coach Frank Viola recently told SNY.TV's Rob Brender.

"We tend to think that he?s been around for a long time, but, in reality, he hasn?t pitched more than 125 innings in a season," Viola explained. "He has to go out there, he has to get into situations he?s not used to getting into. He has to go deeper into ballgames and work on stuff. ... It?is a process and hopefully people will give him that time to learn and do it the right way, so that when he does get called up he?s up there for good."
