When pitcher Noah Syndergaard takes the mound on Wednesday for the Mets during their series against the Colorado Rockies, Rene Rivera will reportedly catch for the righty, not Wilson Ramos.
According to MLB.com's Anthony DiComo, the Mets will make that lineup change behind the plate.
SNY's Andy Martino confirmed a report from The Post on Sept. 9 that Syndergaard had previously voiced his frustrations with the Mets' brass in regard to him having to pitch to Ramos.
At the time of the initial report, Syndergaard had a 2.45 ERA in 10 starts with Tomas Nido behind the dish compared to a 5.09 ERA with Ramos back there in 15 starts.
While the Mets are reportedly opting for Rivera instead on Wednesday, Nido is in their starting lineup on Monday, the team's series opener against the Rockies.
The reasoning the Mets would have for starting Ramos despite Syndergaard's frustrations is his bat. Ramos has much better numbers at the plate. This season Ramos is hitting a .291 average, which includes his 26-game hitting streak.
Nido is hitting at a .202 average while Rivera is up to .286, but he's only had seven plate appearances in his brief, recent spell with the Mets.
The Mets and manager Mickey Callaway last paired Syndergaard together with Ramos on Friday against the Los Angeles Dodgers, which went down as a 9-2 loss.
Callaway previously took ownership for how the lineup is constructed.
"You know what, Noah understands that I'm going to make the lineup out," Callaway said. "And he's going to go out there and compete for the team. He understands that we're trying to do something special here and get to the playoffs, and that everything else is separated from that. So we're going to continue putting the best players on the field at all times, and everyone of our players in there is going to compete to the best of their ability and only worry about the team. That's all you can do and I think Noah does a great job of that."
