first_imgThe Mets are expected to be sellers this month and they’re reportedly exploring moving Zack Wheeler, Jason Vargas and Todd Frazier, amongst others. Yet, New York enters play Thursday on a four-game winning streak and is just five games out of the second wild-card spot with a 44-51 record.Syndergaard is set to pitch Thursday against the Giants. He’ll face Madison Bumgarner, who’s also reportedly available. Syndergaard has regressed in 2019 as he holds a 7-4 record with a 4.55 ERA in 18 starts. But, he remains an attractive asset because he’ll be under team control through the 2021 season.  SNY’s report adds: Related News The Mets have indicated in public and private that they do not intend to move Syndergaard this month. One source estimated that he will make between $8.5 and $11 million next year, which is a relative bargain for a pitcher of his caliber.But as previously reported, Syndergaard is highly unlikely to remain a Met long-term, making it logical to trade him with two years of control remaining.

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.” Giants’ Madison Bumgarner discusses trade rumors: ‘I feel like I’ve done a good job of blocking it out’ Dominic Smith doesn’t want to be traded: ‘I only want to play for the Mets’ The Mets will have plenty of options if they decide to trade Noah Syndergaard.At least eight teams have called New York to inquire about a deal for the 26-year-old starter, according to a report from SNY.
