Report: Padres Showing Significant Interest In Syndergaard

November 16, 2018 - 2:49 pm


While Jacob deGrom is making headlines for winning the Cy Young award, it is one of his fellow Mets starting pitchers that is receiving some serious interest on the trade market. 

The San Diego Padres are expected to be aggressive in their pursuit of Noah Syndergaard this offseason, according to a report from SNY's Andy Martino.

The Padres talked to the Mets about a Syndergaard trade this past summer, but the two sides did not appear to come close to an agreement.

San Diego is reportedly prepared to go harder after the big right-hander this winter.

Syndergaard went 13-4 with a 3.03 ERA and 1.212 WHIP in 25 starts this past season, racking up 155 strikeouts in 154.1 innings.

Although there was some recent buzz about a possible swap of Syndergaard and the Cubs' Kris Bryant, Chicago has not yet been aggressive in their pursuit of the 26-year-old pitcher, according to Martino. 

Despite the reports, New York has given no indication that the team intends on trading Syndergaard, who is under team control for another three seasons.
