Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Noah Syndergaard and Rafael Montero, both members of the 2013 Binghamton Mets, have been selected to represent the New York Mets at the 2013 All-Star Futures Game to be played at Citi Field on Sunday, July 14.

Syndergaard, 20, made his Double-A with the B-Mets on Sunday after beginning the season with the St. Lucie Mets (High-A) in the Florida State League. He struck out seven Erie SeaWolves over six innings and collected the victory. The 6’6” right-hander was acquired in a trade with the Toronto Blue Jays in December 2012. The Mansfield, Texas native will pitch for the US Team.

Montero, 22, went 7-3 with a 2.43 ERA in eleven starts with the B-Mets before getting promoted to the Las Vegas 51’s (AAA) earlier this month. In just under 67 innings pitched, the righty struck out 72 batters and issued just 10 walks. He ended his time in the Eastern League by posting 23-2/3 consecutive scoreless innings. The native of Higuerito, Dominican Republic will pitch for the World Team.
