Report: Mets explore using return in a Syndergaard move to land Stroman

Shi Davidi joined Tim and Sid to talk about the Blue Jays and Marcus Stroman, and why there are conflicting reports out there saying the team tried to sign the pitcher to an extension.

The New York Mets are exploring the possibility of using the return from a possible Noah Syndergaard trade to land Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman, reports MLB Network reporter Ken Rosenthal.

Rosenthal tweeted that the Mets might be looking at sending the towering right-hander to the San Diego Padres and then flipping the assets coming back in the trade to the Blue Jays for Stroman.

Rosenthal speculated that Padres pitching prospect Cal Quantrill, from Port Hope, Ont., could be a potential target for Toronto.

Quantrill, a 24-year-old righty, was selected eighth overall in the 2016 MLB Draft. He has a 3-2 record with a 3.76 ERA in 52.2 innings with the Padres this season.

Another team potentially looking for Stroman’s services could be the Los Angeles Dodgers, Rosenthal reports.
