The New York Yankees, Miami Marlins, and New York Mets may finalize a blockbuster three-team deal soon. Ken Rosenthal tweeted Noah Syndergaard could end up in pinstripes if the deal goes through.
Yankees GM Brian Cashman may soon shock the baseball world by acquiring New York Mets starting pitcher, Noah Syndergaard. News broke about the potential deal late Monday night by Ken Rosenthal.
“#Mets have discussed trade in which they would land J.T. Realmuto in three-team deal with #Yankees and #Marlins, sources tell The Athletic. Not known if Syndergaard involved. NYM would not part with Syndergaard (three years control) if getting only Realmuto (two years) in return.” @Ken_Rosenthal 10:56 PM 10 Dec. 18
The rumor mill is churning right now, as multiple reports indicate a deal may be closing in while others insist it’s not imminent. It won’t surprise anyone if Brian Cashman makes another Winter Meetings splash.
Last offseason the Yanks acquired Giancarlo Stanton; this year could bring Thor across town.
We’re not sure which players would be involved in the proposed three-team swap. But we do know the Mets would at least acquire Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto. It’s likely the Yankees would contribute some prospects and perhaps even Rookie of the Year Runner-up, Miguel Andujar in the trade.
For the Yanks to land Syndergaard, it will cost a lot. The move could bring the Yankees closer to a championship if Syndergaard can produce a full season worth of dominance, which we know he’s capable of when healthy. He would likely fit in to the No. 2 or No. 3 slot of the starting rotation.
If Andujar is included in the deal, which is likely, would the Yanks sign Manny Machado to fill in at third base? News also broke yesterday that the Bombers were not willing to offer $300 million for Machado. Could one blockbuster change their course of action? Maybe it should.
