With the trade deadline three weeks away, Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard is drawing interest from the Brewers, while some with the Astros are "intrigued" at the possibility of dealing for him, reports MLB.com's Jon Morosi.
SNY's Andy Martino reported recently that it is far more likely the Mets explore trading Syndergaard this winter, but that he isn't a total lock to be a Met beyond the July 31 trade deadline.
The 26-year-old Syndergaard is under Mets control through the 2021 season, so the Mets shouldn't be in any rush to deal him -- especially since his career-worst ERA this season means New York would be trading him at his lowest value.
While Syndergaard has struggled this season, his peripherals paint a rosier picture than his ERA. His FIP is 3.98 and his walk rate is close to what it was in 2018. But the inability to throw his slider as an out-pitch this season has changed the kind of pitcher Syndergaard is -- at least temporarily.
