Phillies acquire starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard


The Philadelphia Phillies have acquired starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard from the Los Angeles in the final minutes of the Major League Baseball trade deadline (Aug. 2nd at 6pm ET), their third acquisition of the day.

The Phillies trade Mickey Moniak and a second prospect for Syndergaard, Jayson Stark reports.

Syndergaard, 29, is in his seventh MLB season, spending the first six with the New York Mets before signing a one-year, $21 million deal with the Angels this past offseason.

Syndergaard, who has battled injuries throughout his career, is 5-8 this season with a 3.83 ERA. His best season was back in 2016 when he was named to the All-Star game and finished the season 14-9 with a 2.60 ERA, a 2.29 FIP, 218 strikeouts and 43 walks.

Earlier on MLB Trade Deadline day, the Phils acquired right handed veteran relief pitcher David Robertson and 24-year-old outfielder Brandon Marsh.

The Phillies also designated outfielder Odubel Herrera and pitcher Jeurys Familia for assignment.
