Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard has pronounced himself ready for Opening Day. He was overpowering, efficient and crafty -- all of that and more -- in Sunday's 5-4 win against the Orioles at Ed Smith Stadium.

Mets left-hander Jason Vargas has sustained a non-displaced fracture of his right (glove) hand, placing the start of his season in doubt.
Anthony Swarzak didn't miss a beat. The Mets' right-handed reliever made his first appearance since straining a left calf muscle covering first base in a Feb. 27 game. He needed only 10 pitches to complete a perfect fifth inning in the Mets' 9-7 win over the Nationals on Saturday.
Using a glove he got from Yoenis Cespedes two years ago, Mets infielder Wilmer Flores played his first game in left field in Saturday's 9-7 win over the Nationals.
It was only the second start of Spring Training for Jacob deGrom, but nothing about his outing vs. the Orioles on Friday would lead one to believe it.
The left shoulder injury that cost Michael Conforto the final month of 2017 is further in the rearview mirror. The outfielder returned to game action Friday for the first time since undergoing surgery in September, walking twice in four plate appearances in a Minor League contest.
It's a make-or-break Spring Training for right-hander Rafael Montero. The veteran hurler is out of Minor League options.

After two good starts to open Spring Training and a poor start Saturday, Mets right-hander Matt Harvey combined a little bit of all three in his fourth outing. Harvey allowed three earned runs on six hits over five innings in his deepest start so far against the Marlins at First Data Field on Thursday.
Former Mets player Ed Charles passed away on Thursday at the age of 84.
There may be no team in baseball with a wider set of possible outcomes than the Mets. Two years ago, they won 87 games en route to a Wild Card berth. Last year, they lost 92 with a nearly identical cast of characters.
From baseball's brightest stars to the next great fantasy steal lurking on the Mets' depth chart, everything you need to know is one click away.
Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard was in a joking mood on Thursday when he was asked about getting the Opening Day nod two days prior.
While left-hander Steven Matz did not win the Mets' fifth starter's job outright in a 5-1 loss to Miami, he looked markedly better than Zack Wheeler, who allowed five runs on three innings a night earlier.
Committed to returning to the field despite his latest setback, David Wright will attend the Mets' Opening Day game against the Cardinals at Citi Field before continuing his surgery rehabilitation in New York.
Mets infielder Luis Guillorme was among top prospect performers in Spring Training on Wednesday.
If you can believe it, Opening Day is only two weeks away, and we're previewing each division every Wednesday. This week: The National League East.
An injury to Jacob deGrom delayed his schedule long enough to make Noah Syndergaard the Mets' Opening Day starter.
#OpeningDayIsBack on March 29 -- tell your friends
If nothing else, Tim Tebow kept his sense of humor -- not to mention his self-awareness. Batting .056 with 11 strikeouts in 19 Grapefruit League plate appearances, Tebow took a good-natured tact when Mickey Callaway called him into the manager's office Tuesday afternoon to reassign him to Minor League camp.
Exactly four weeks into Spring Training, but still two and a half shy of Opening Day, it's time to revisit the roster projections that appeared in this space before camp began. Not much has changed; some minor injuries have reared their heads, but nothing that should affect the composition of the 25 Mets who will toe the line on March 29.
A group that Noah Syndergaard calls "The Breakfast Club" meets every morning at one end of the Mets' Spring Training clubhouse, near Syndergaard's locker. Jacob deGrom and Steven Matz are usually there eating, as is Jay Bruce. But perhaps none of the veterans who lug over folding chairs command as much respect as David Wright, whose distinctive laugh was missing from that end of the clubhouse on Tuesday morning.
The slow crawl of Jacob deGrom's spring crescendoed into something tangible on Sunday, when he took the mound for the first time in a Grapefruit League game. deGrom's first pitch of the spring clocked in at 95 mph. His second was 96. His third, also 96, buzzed across home plate's outside corner, giving deGrom the first of three consecutive strikeouts.
Jake Arrieta's arrival makes the National League East more interesting and more competitive. Even better, the division was already trending rapidly in that direction.
If Yoenis Cespedes isn't comfortable batting second, he isn't saying. And he certainly isn't showing it. Cespedes launched his third spring home run in the Mets' 5-2 loss to the Astros on Sunday, proving again that he can be potent wherever the Mets decide to bat him this season.
A glance at the box score of the Subway Series game -- a 10-3 loss to the Yankees on Saturday -- does not reveal good results for Mets starter Matt Harvey. A deeper dive into it -- and what wasn't shown on it -- provided some signs of encouragement.
Making his first start in the field since being hit with a pitch on March 3, Amed Rosario looked comfortable at shortstop and in the batter's box on Saturday in the Mets' 10-3 loss to the Yankees.
In 2017, the Mets never seemed to have enough rotation depth. They used 12 different starting pitchers. Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, Steven Matz and Noah Syndergaard each threw fewer than 100 Major League innings because of injuries.
Noah Syndergaard continued his spring dominance in machine-like fashion on Thursday, striking out seven straight batters en route to 3 1/3 scoreless innings against the Nationals.
Peter Alonso was hitting in the batting cage one day during his freshman year of college when Kevin O'Sullivan, the University of Florida's longtime head coach, shouted to him that he looked like Paul Konerko: big, burly, a right-handed masher. If it wasn't meant to be a transcendent moment, something nonetheless clicked in Alonso's brain.
It was the opportunity of a lifetime for 17-year-old Joshua Cohen -- a chance to demonstrate how thoroughly he had won his fight with cancer.
In so many ways -- and not so long after he was nicknamed the Dark Knight -- Matt Harvey remains the most famous 34-35 pitcher in baseball, and maybe the most famous under-.500 record in the history of the Mets, whose fans once considered him the heir to Tom Seaver.
Hernandez's phone goes off during broadcast
Veteran right-hander Mike Pelfrey has decided to retire from professional baseball to become a coach at Newman University, according to a report by SB Nation on Wednesday.
Toward the end of the 2017 season, general manager Sandy Alderson acknowledged that the Mets must be more mindful of defense. Then he went and did something about it, making several moves to improve the club's acumen in the field.
Top prospects from around the game made a big impact in Spring Training action on Tuesday.
