Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard is once again at the center of trade rumors.  With New York’s season slowly circling the drain and three weeks until the trade deadline, contenders have expressed interest in his services.

The Brewers and Astros are both reportedly interested in acquiring Syndergaard.  Houston has a need for pitching beyond a postseason run this year and is “intrigued” by the thought of acquiring Syndergaard, a native Texan.


Some within the Astros organization are intrigued by the possibility of acquiring Syndergaard, a hard-throwing Texan who could replace Gerrit Cole in future rotations if Cole leaves as a free agent this winter. Syndergaard is earning $6 million this season and is due to receive a raise in 2020, the first year he’ll be eligible for arbitration.

Of the three Houston pitchers to have thrown more than 100 innings this season, only Justin Verlander is under contract to the club for 2020; Cole and left-hander Wade Miley are set to become free agents.

A trade would probably be beneficial for both the Mets and Syndergaard.  He could use a change of scenery and they could use the talent they would likely get in return for dealing him.
