Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard reiterated on Thursday that he had a "very different lifting method" this offseason in an effort to be more lean than last season -- when added muscle perhaps contributed to the lat injury that kept him out for most of the year.
"Overall, body feels great," Syndergaard said. "Feels lean, explosive."
Syndergaard also discussed new manager Mickey Callaway.
"He's what they like to call a 'guy's guy,'" Syndergaard said. "He's just an amazing person. Great just to talk to. Very knowledgeable, confident when he addresses all of us."
On Matt Harvey, Syndergaard stressed the importance return to form would have on the rest of the starting rotation.
"I think it's very important for all of us," he said. "For Matt to come back to where he was. He's been through a whole lot. We're rooting for him. We're all excited to have him back and healthy."
"Sky's the limit if all five of us stay healthy," Syndergaard said about the rotation. "The goal for us as starters is to make it seven innings every game. I think anything short of that is unacceptable."
