The Padres are reportedly pursuing Mets starter Noah Syndergaard, but the sides appear far away from completing a deal.
San Diego's offers for the 26-year-old right-hander have been "especially light," according to a report from MLB Insider Jon Heyman.
Syndergaard has regressed in 2019 as he holds a 7-5 record with a 4.33 ERA in 20 starts. But, he remains an attractive asset because he'll be under team control through the 2021 season.
New York is "fully intent on dealing" Syndergaard, who was an All-Star as a 23-year-old in 2016, before the July 31 trade deadline, rival executives told ESPN last week.
