Phillies land former Mets pitcher on deadline
The Philadelphia Phillies were able to snag a starting pitcher at the close, and it was none other than former New York Met Noah Syndergaard.
The Philadelphia Phillies were looking for a starting pitcher heading into the close. In the final hour of the trade cut-off point, the Phillies landed a veteran option and a familiar face from NL East.
According to The Athletic’s Jayson Stark, the Phillies acquired Noah Syndergaard from the Los Angeles Angels in exchange for Mickey Moniak and another prospect.

Syndergaard was one of the Angels’ top free agent signings this past offseason when they signed him to a one-year, $21 million deal. After being left in shambles after a disastrous start to the season that led to the sacking of manager Joe Maddon, the Angels became salesmen. In fact, they even listened to offers for Shohei Ohtani.
Now Syndergaard travels to Philadelphia, where he is reunited with former Mets teammate Zack Wheeler.
This season, Syndergaard has a 3.83 ERA, a 1,213 WHIP, a 5-8 record, 64 strikeouts and 22 walks in 80.0 innings (15 starts).
Moniak switched back and forth between the major and minor leagues this season. In 18 games with the Phillies, he posted .130/.184/.152 while recording two RBI, four runs made and six hits.
Not only could the Phillies get David Robertson to extend their bullpen again, but they were able to get Syndergaard to help them in their hunt for a wild card spot. Oh, and for those wondering, the Phillies play the Mets seven times in August, so there’s a chance Syndergaard could face his former team.
