New York Mets prospect Noah Syndergaard was scolded by David Wright for eating lunch during a team scrimmage on Tuesday.
Wright instructed Syndergaard that the dugout was the appropriate place for him to be for the duration of the intrasquad game, even though he wasn't scheduled to pitch.
Syndergaard took the advice, but not before veteran right-hander Bobby Parnell intervened, picking up Syndergaard's plate of food and tossing it into a trash can.
"Being a young player, any chance you get to learn, you go out there and learn," Wright told Newsday. "... I'm not a big ranter and raver. When I get on somebody, it's 99 percent private. I'm not going to yell and scream. But when I speak to somebody, when I get on somebody, the point needs to be taken."
