The Mets have taken Noah Syndergaard off of the trade market, according to Joel Sherman. Syndergaard had a dominant performance against the Chicago White Sox last night.

The news comes after a week of speculation that Syndergaard would potentially be moved. Syndergaard had drawn interest from several teams, including the Padres, Twins, Braves, and Athletics.

The Mets’ asking price for Syndergaard was said to have been too high for most teams to match. As Jon Morosi of MLB Network tweeted this morning, the Mets were trying to get major league players in return for Syndergaard rather than prospects.

Although he’s had a down year by his standards with a 4.10 ERA and 3.48 FIP, Syndergaard has some of the best stuff in the game. And he has been excellent lately, with a 1.91 ERA and 1.53 FIP in 28.1 innings over the course of four starts since the All-Star break.
