    A long road trip for the New York Mets was followed by an uneven homestand in which they went 3-3 against the Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals.

    Down on the farm, the Mets' prospects have continued to develop. Let's see how their weeks went.

    Here is an updated report for the organization's top 10 prospects.

10. Steven Matz, LHP, St. Lucie Mets (High-A)

    No appearances were made.

    Overview

    Steven Matz did not make a start this week because the Florida State League All-Star break occurred this past week. For the season, he has a nice 2.13 ERA in 10 starts and has almost a 3-1 ratio of strikeouts to walks as well. Hopefully, he will continue to pitch as well throughout the rest of the season.

    Kevin Plawecki continued his great season with yet another good week at the plate. The backstop could certainly become a big part of the Mets' future with the way he has been hitting this season, especially when Travis d'Arnaud's struggles are taken into consideration.

    Rafael Montero made two starts last week, but neither of the two went well. In the first start, he gave up six runs in three innings, but only one of those runs was an earned run. In the second start, Montero left the game in the first inning due to an oblique injury. Hopefully, the injury won't cause him to miss a lot of time.

    — Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) June 15, 2014

     

    According to Adam Rubin of ESPN.com, Syndergaard should be activated from the disabled list on June 17 and start that day. Syndergaard was on the disabled list after suffering an injury to his non-throwing shoulder.

    Hopefully, Syndergaard will be able to make his much anticipated major league debut sometime this summer. Staying healthy will definitely expedite the process.
