Report: Astros interested in Syndergaard


The Houston Astros have emerged as yet another team interested in acquiring New York Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.

In 106 appearances, the 26-year-old boasts a career 3.20 ERA with 9.7 strikeouts per nine innings. However, the 2019 campaign has been Syndergaard's most challenging to date; through 19 starts, he's posted a career-worst 4.36 ERA and 3.81 strikeout-to-walk rate.

Syndergaard is under team control through the end of the 2021 season.

Other teams previously linked to the 6-foot-6 flamethrower include the San Diego Padres and Milwaukee Brewers.

The Mets' short-term aspirations appear to have stalled. The team entered Monday's slate with a 45-54 record, sitting 14 games behind the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves and seven games back of a wild-card berth.
