In January, Nationals OF Bryce Harper posted a video of himself and his brother, Bryan, singing in excitement for Ohio State's College Football Playoff game against Clemson.

Barstool Sports shared it on their Instagram account, where Syndergaard responded in the comment section, calling Harper a "douche."

When Harper was asked about comment over the weekend at Nationals camp, the outfielder didn't exactly laugh off the incident. 

"I don't know, Syndergaard does what he does and the Mets do what they do," Harper told reporters, according to Kevin Kernan of the New York Post. "So we are going to worry about what we do in our clubhouse and do everything we can do win ballgames and hopefully have a better record than any team in Major League Baseball."

Matt Harvey, Noah Syndergaard, Zack Wheeler and Terry Collins spent a good chunk of time at the end of today's practice signing autographs for Mets fans...

It was quite a frenzy, especially considering Harvey and Syndergaard were signing at the same time. And, I have to say, though people were going pretty crazy to get to Syndergaard, I actually think Harvey created a bigger buzz...

Former major league pitcher and pitching coach Tom House believes that Noah Syndergaard could suffer an arm injury as soon as this summer, he told Bob Klapisch of The Record

House, who pitched seven years in the major leagues, said Syndergaard's adding of 17 pounds of muscle only hurts his development. 

"Unfortunately, this is an injury waiting to happen by the second week of June," House told Klapisch. "Unless you're picking up a ball while you're getting stronger, you're just adding muscle that doesn't know how to throw. It's unskilled muscle."

Bartolo Colon, who signed a one year deal worth $12.5 million with the Braves this offseason, initially thought he was going to return to the Mets for 2017.

"I had the idea that I was probably going to stay with the Mets at the end of the season," Colon told the NY Post through an interpreter. "My family is up there, but it's a business, and I had to do what was right for me and my family. This was a business decision.''

"The Mets did a lot for me,'' Colon added. "It's just one of those things.''

Colon, who turns 44 years old in May, had a 3.43 ERA (3.99 FIP) and 1.21 WHIP in 191 2/3 innings (33 starts, one relief apperance) last season for the Mets...

Terry Collins has named Noah Syndergaard the Mets' Opening Day starter.

According to Collins, Syndergaard earned the honor with the way he pitched last season.

Syndergaard said it's a "huge honor" and that he's thrilled about how much confidence Collins has in him.

The Mets begin their 2017 season on April 3 at Citi Field against the Braves...

  • OF Michael Conforto is "too good a player" to continue to struggle.
  • If everyone is healthy, there will likely be two spots open in the bullpen, and the team could "very easily" take three left-handers...

GEICO SportsNite: Mets in camp 00:03:14
The Mets return to Port St. Lucie as they begin Spring Training with questions surrounding the health of Matt Harvey and David Wright.

Noah Syndergaard told reporters Sunday that his arm and elbow are healthy, so much so that he hopes to add velocity to his fastball this coming season...

"I always want to throw harder and continue to make the game easier," he explained, talking from the media room at Tradition Field. "I feel like my velocity jumped up from my rookie season to last year, so I'm always going to try to raise that kind of bar."

Syndergaard, 24, averaged the highest velocity among big-league starting pitchers with his fastball (98.0 mph), slider (90.9 mph) and changeup (89.8 mph) last season, according to FanGraphs.

Noah Syndergaard's leadership 00:05:20
The Baseball Night in New York panel discusses the leadership that pitcher Noah Syndergaard brings to the Mets.

Noah Syndergaard is fine being referred to as the leader of his team's current pitching staff, he told Ben Reiter, who featured a profile on Syndergaard in this month's Sport Illustrated.

His goal, however, is to continue to get better... and look good doing it...

"I always want to raise the bar," he told SI. "Right now, with me throwing 100, I'm not really sure if that's attainable. But I still want to try. And to look good in the uni, of course."

Syndergaard, 24, was 14-9 with a 2.60 ERA (2.29 FIP) and 1.14 WHIP in 31 appearances (30 starts) last season, during which he made the All-Star team, finished third in ERA and became the first pitcher in MLB history to start his career with 350 strikeouts and less than 80 walks.

Call to the Majors: Syndergaard 00:01:35
In the latest installment of Call to the Majors presented by Citi, Noah Syndergaard remembers the day he was promoted to the Major Leagues.

Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard is the fourth-best pitcher in the National League, MLB talent evaluators recently told ESPN.com's Buster Olney.

Syndergaard, 24, was 14-9 with a 2.60 ERA (2.29 FIP) and 1.14 WHIP in 31 appearances (30 starts) last season, during which he made the All-Star team, finished third in ERA and became the first pitcher in MLB history to start his career with 350 strikeouts and less than 80 walks.

In order for the Mets to win 90 games in 2017, they obviously can't get hit with the injury bug like they did last season -- especially not in the starting rotation.

So, health aside, what has to happen for them to win 90?

The Mets have the third-best starting rotation in baseball, an anonymous group of talent evaluators told ESPN.com's Buster Olney.

The Red Sox and Cubs rank higher than the Mets mostly because of the New York staff's inability to remain healthy and be on the field at the same time.

"They need to actually get out there and do it," one executive told Olney of the Mets. "It's one thing to have a great arm, but you have to show that you can give 180-200 innings."

The Mets have not yet talked with their young starting pitchers about about multiyear-contract-extensions beyond their current deals, Mets GM Sandy Alderson told reporters during a lunch Thursday at Citi Field.

"I don't see it as a pressing issue," Alderson said, according to ESPN's Adam Rubin.

In late-December, Alderson made a similar statement, saying he had no plans to talk contract extensions prior to spring training.

Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard is the fourth-best pitcher in the National League, MLB talent evaluators recently told ESPN.com's Buster Olney.

"Of all the guys on your list, he's probably got the best stuff," one evaluator told Olney.

Clayton Kershaw (Dodgers), Max Scherzer (Nationals) and Madison Bumgarner (Giants) are the only NL pitchers to rank higher than Syndergaard, according to Olney.

The Mets will not be talking contract extensions with any of their current starting pitchers before spring training, Sandy Alderson said Dec. 24, according to Daily News reporter Kristie Ackert.

"We're not thinking about it now, it really hasn't been our focus," Alderson told Ackert. "It's probably not something that is going to happen before we head to spring training."

According to Syndergaard, he and his teammates plan to hit Spring Training focused on attaining the ultimate goal in 2017.

For the second time this offseason, Mets GM Sandy Alderson said he and his staff are planning to change the workload and routine of their starting pitchers, he told reporters Tuesday at the Winter Meetings.

Last month, Alderson said he is open to occasionally using a six-man rotation and mixing in spot starters so guys can get extended rest between appearances.

Mets starter Noah Syndergaard will not participate in the 2017 World Baseball Classic, his agent, Ryan Hamill, said in a statement Tuesday.

"Noah feels his performance the past two years is, in large part, due to his offseason and spring workout routines," Hamill explained. "After consulting with the Mets, and given the injuries that plagued their rotation last year, and his role on the team moving forward, both Noah and the Mets feel it is important to stay in his established routine."

Syndergaard, 24, was diagnosed with a bone spur in his elbow earlier in the season, which did not impact his performance and does not require surgery, Sandy Alderson said in early November.

Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard will not have surgery to remove a bone spur in his pitching elbow, Sandy Alderson told reporters on Tuesday at the GM Meetings.

"I think this one is so insignificant in the eyes of the physicians," said Alderson. "It was probably blown a little out of proportion last year, which tends to happen around the Mets."

Despite the spur in his right elbow, Syndergaard went 14-9 with a 2.60 ERA in 31 regular season appearances, 30 of which were starts, in 2016. The 24-year old also pitched the wild-card game, throwing seven scoreless innings and allowing only two hits and three walks while striking out 10.

Thank you, Mets, for a wild season. In spring training, settling for a wild card loss would have been a major disappointment. However, at 60-62 on Aug. 19, with 70 percent of the Opening Day lineup on the disabled list, simply getting to the wild card seemed like an unrealistic goal. Nevertheless, the Mets attained it. It was an amazing run and I'm glad I got to experience watching it.

Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard gave up two hits, while striking out 10 of 25 batters, through seven scoreless innings during Wednesday's 3-0 loss to the Giants.

"I've got to rank this one tonight as good as any under the circumstances," Terry Collins said of Syndergaard, who took a no-hitter in to the sixth inning. "He stepped up when we needed him. He stepped up last year when we needed him. He's grown so much, even though he's still very, very young, he's grown so much and matured so much as a pitcher. He's going to be really, really good."

Syndergaard threw 25 pitches in the fourth inning, 19 in the sixth inning and 18 in the seventh, finishing his night with 108 pitches thrown. Bumgarner, by contrast, threw just 21 pitches through the first three innings.

Last night was a confusing experience. It was painful to experience 1,500 innings of baseball between March through last night, only to see it all go up in flames in the span of 10 minutes.

Terry Collins on Wild Card loss 00:07:13
New York Mets manager Terry Collins speaks to the media following the Mets' loss to the Giants in the NL Wild Card Game.

Jeurys Familia allowed a three-run home run to Conor Gillaspie with one out in the top of the ninth inning as the New York Mets' hopes to return to the World Series ended with a 3-0 loss to Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants in the wild card game on Wednesday at Citi Field.

In case you missed it…

  • Familia allowed a leadoff double to Brandon Crawford and a one-out walk to Joe Panik to bring up Gillaspie, who hit a three-run home run to right-center field to break a scoreless tie.
  • Bumgarner struck out six batters in a four-hit shutout. 
  • Addison Reed pitched out of a bases-loaded, two-out jam in the top of the eighth inning by striking out Hunter Pence.
  • Bumgarner got Asdrubal Cabrera to line out softly back to the mound with Ty Kelly on second base to end the bottom of the eighth inning.
  • Noah Syndergaard struck out 10 batters in seven scoreless innings and took a no-hitter into the sixth inning. He gave up two hits and three walks, throwing 70 of 108 pitches for strikes.
  • Denard Span broke up Syndergaard's no-hitter with a clean single with two outs in the sixth inning.
  • Curtis Granderson made a run-saving catch to end the sixth inning when he made a running, over-the-shoulder catch and crashed into the wall to rob Brandon Belt of an extra-base hit.

What's next…

The Giants face Jon Lester and the Chicago Cubs in Game 1 of the NLDS on Friday at 9:15 p.m. ET.

"He's extremely aggressive," Mets manager Terry Collins said Tuesday. "He's extremely competitive. He doesn't pitch around anybody. He goes after everybody he ever faces, and therefore, you better be ready, because you're going to get something to hit, and you better do some damage with it."
