Mets GM says Noah Syndergaard trade is not likely

The New York Mets were reportedly entertaining the idea of trading Noah Syndergaard at the start of the offseason, but the recent acquisitions they made have seemingly resulted in a change of plans.

With the Mets having traded for Robinson Cano and stud closer Edwin Diaz, general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said the team is now focusing on winning in 2019 and would not be interested in trading Syndergaard for a package of prospects.

A report last month indicated that as many as six teams were trying to pry Syndergaard away from the Mets, and New York had interest in making such a deal if it would allow the team to fill multiple holes. That could still be the case if a team comes along that is willing to part with quality MLB starters for Syndergaard, but trades like that are far less common.

Syndergaard went 13-4 with a 3.03 ERA last season. Between him and Cy Young Award winner Jacob deGrom, the Mets should have one of the best one-two punches in baseball at the top of their starting rotation in 2019.
