The New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays have agreed on a deal to send All-Star Marcus Stroman to Queens. The deal does NOT involve Noah Syndergaard or Zack Wheeler. Instead the Blue Jays will receive prospects Anthony Kay and Simeon Woods-Richardson.

Did the Mets Give Up Too Much?

Whenever teams give up prospects, it is a lottery ticket that teams hope never give their teams high rewards. Kay is the top Mets pitching prospect, but has struggled during his time in Triple-A this season. His ERA is over six in Syracuse.

Woods-Richardson is only 18-years old, but has progressed through the minors quickly. He is the one who gets this deal done because he still has time to grow while Kay is 24-years old. This is a very fair deal for now, but we truly do not know the answer until all is said and done.

What Does This Mean For The Mets?

They currently only sit five games under .500 and six out of the second Wild Card spot. They have a light schedule coming up and have been playing great since the All-Star Break. The Mets seem to be all in for this season and the following one.

Noah Syndergaard could be the next pitcher the Mets move. Do not expect the Mets to move him unless they get a spectacular return. Worst case scenario they keep him and have one of the best rotations in baseball. There are still a few days until the trade deadline arrives and it seems the Mets still have more work to do.
