The Mets and Padres have been talking for weeks about a Noah Syndergaard trade, and now we have our first specific tidbit: San Diego has told the Mets that top infield prospect Fernando Tatis Jr. is untouchable, according to major league sources.
The teams have discussed catcher Austin Hedges.
The Mets remain open to moving Syndergaard, but are still looking for the right offer. If that offer fails to materialize they will keep him.
The team has remained in contact with top free agenst starters J.A. Happ and Patrick Corbin, among others, and could pursue one to replace Syndergaard.
