Yankees plan to seek rotation help before trade deadline, with Mets’ Noah Syndergaard, Zack Wheeler among possible targets | SNY
If the Yankees don’t acquire Keuchel, they will pursue a trade. We’re sure to hear Madison Bumgarner’s name mentioned in rumors and reports, but the Yanks are not alone in viewing Bumgarner as a shell of his former self, at least at the moment. Texas’ Mike Minor and Toronto’s Marcus Stroman are two of the better pitchers who might be available.
And here’s a wild card option: If the struggling Mets find themselves out of contention by summer, expect the Yankees to inquire again on Noah Syndergaard and Zack Wheeler.
It’s not even Memorial Day yet, and I am reading about the Mets as sellers. This team is built to win now. They have already blown most of the post 2015 window so might as well just blow what is left?
