SportMets' asking price for Noah Syndergaard is ‘a few arms and a leg’
Report: Astros among teams that could explore Noah Syndergaard trade
The New York Mets are expected to be sellers at the MLB trade deadline, and there has been talk that they could part ways with Noah Syndergaard if they can get a massive haul. The Houston Astros already have one of the best starting rotations in baseball, but they may be among the teams who inquire about the right-hander. Jon Morosi of MLB.com reports that multiple teams have contacted the Mets about a potential Syndergaard trade, and there are some within the Astros organization who are “intrigued” by the idea of adding him.
The struggling New York Mets will likely look to sell before the July 31 MLB trade deadline.
Though, don’t expect ace starter Noah Syndergaard to be changing teams. As has long been the case, New Yorkand has no real intention of trading him.
According to Jeff Passan of ESPN, Syndergaard might be available, but the asking price for his services will likely keep the All-Star off the market.
“The price, another GM chuckled, is ‘a few arms and a leg.’ “The Mets are plenty aware of what they have in Syndergaard: a pitcher with the greatest raw stuff in the game,”.
Report: Mets not expected to deal Syndergaard with lofty price tag
The New York Mets are reportedly attaching a hefty price tag to right-hander Noah Syndergaard, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan. "(A) few arms and a leg," one general manager said of the Mets' demands. Due to the asking price, teams apparently don't expect the former All-Star to be moved before the July 31 trade deadline. Syndergaard has been the subject of trade rumors since last year. The San Diego Padres have been mentioned as a potential suitor on multiple occasions. The 27-year-old is 7-4 with a 4.55 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 112 2/3 innings in 2019. Copyright © 2019 Score Media Ventures Inc. All rights reserved. Certain content reproduced under license.
Syndergaard, 26, is arbitration eligible for the next two seasons. Having someone that age under team control is invaluable in today’s MLB.
Despite some struggles this season, Syndergaard is highly regarded around the baseball world. He’s pitched to a mere 7-4 record with a 4.55 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 18 starts this season.
If Syndergaard were somehow moved, it would come at an incredible cost for a contending team. The cross-city rival New York Yankees are interested in him. However, the Mets are very unlikely to deal him to the Bronx.
It’s something to pay attention to over the next two weeks.
