New York Yankees
This one would sting the most for fans, but in the end, baseball is a business. Thor in New York Yankees pinstripes would not make a lot of us happy but what he could bring back in return could.
With years of control left on Syndergaard’s contract, the Mets could still receive a good return but one that would get Gleyber Torres. Syndergaard’s injury history would probably disqualify him from guys like Torres but the Yankees are loaded with other options.
One name the Mets should have on their radar is outfielder Estevan Florial. The young outfielder has shown 5 tool potential throughout his minor league career and is currently ranked as the Yankees number one prospect overall.
So far in 2018, he has played 38 games in full season in Single-A Tampa. In134 at-bats, he has put together a .246 batting average along with 6 doubles and 10 RBI’s.
However, in 2017 he put up a final line of .298 batting average, 23 doubles, 13 home runs, and 57 RBI’s.
Other prospects the Mets should look to acquire from the Yankees comes from the pitching side. Chance Adams is currently ranked as the Yankees prospect. Although his numbers do not look pretty this year in Triple-A his 2017 numbers show he has a bright future.
In 2017 between Double-A and Triple-A, Adams posted a 15-5 record with 2.45 ERA in 150.1 innings pitched. He also struck out 135 batters and held them to a .193 batting average.
You better believe if the Yankees want Syndergaard, the asking price will be a little higher than anyone else. There’s no way he’s winning a championship in the Bronx without the Mets getting the players to bring one to Queens.
