Syndergaard started the game last year for Team USA. The righty has a 4.98 ERA and a 6-4 record in 13 starts with Triple-A Las Vegas this year.
This is Plawecki's first Futures Game. He's hitting .326/.378/.486 with Double-A Binghamton this year. He may be promoted to Triple-A soon, given Travis d'Arnaud's return to the Major League club (MetsBlog, June 23.)
Last year, Syndergaard played in the game with pitcher Rafael Montero and outfielder Brandon Nimmo.
