The Dodgers, Yankees, Braves and Astros, amongst others, have been linked to Syndergaard, as well.The Mets are six games out of the second National League wild-card spot with a 50-55 record. They acquired Marcus Stroman from the Blue Jays on Sunday in exchange for two pitching prospects. New York is “fully intent on dealing” Syndergaard, who was an All-Star as a 23-year-old in 2016, before the July 31 trade deadline, rival executives told ESPN last week.Rival evaluators say they believe the Mets are fully intent on dealing Noah Syndergaard before the trade deadline. “It’s beyond listening,” said one. “They want to move him.”— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) July 25, 2019″I’m trying not to pay too much attention to (the trade rumors),” Syndergaard said earlier this month, via MLB.com. “As of right now, I love being a Met. If something were to ever change, it would definitely be bittersweet just because New York City itself, the fanbase and just the guys in this clubhouse have a special place in my heart.”The Mets are also reportedly exploring moving Jason Vargas, Edwin Diaz, Todd Frazier and Zack Wheeler — although New York may also look to sign him to an extension if it trades Syndergaard.“We are going to be open-minded,” Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen told reporters in mid-July. “We are going to be thoughtful and measured in terms of what we do as we approach the deadline, all with the eyes on trying to improve this club.” Yankees trade rumors: New York ‘willing to consider’ moving Clint Frazier, Miguel Andujar for starter The Padres are reportedly pursuing Mets starter Noah Syndergaard, but the sides appear far away from completing a deal.San Diego’s offers for the 26-year-old right-hander have been “especially light,” according to a report from MLB Insider Jon Heyman. Padres, Braves and to a lesser degree Astros have been cited as potential landing spots for Syndergaard due to nice farm systems.

The #Padres are not optimistic about acquiring Noah Syndergaard in a trade with the #Mets, believing the pricetag remains too steep for their taste.— Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) July 29, 2019Syndergaard has regressed in 2019 as he holds a 7-5 record with a 4.33 ERA in 20 starts. But, he remains an attractive asset because he’ll be under team control through the 2021 season. Related News
