"This kid is throwing 97 mph today with a hook from hell," Terry Collins later said.
Collins, as well as most of his coaching staff, the team's front office and Fred and Jeff Wilpon all watched Syndergaard throw.
"It was a lot of fun being on the mound, it was a little nerve-racking at times too," Syndergaard told MetsBlog's Robert Brender. "I feel like I did a pretty good job at tuning it out and just focus on me and Anthony Recker."
According to Syndergaard, his goal is to make the big-league roster out of camp. However, if he doesn't, he told Brender, "I know there's a bigger picture involved and when the Mets decide that I'm ready my time will come."
