The New York Mets are coming to terms with the fact that they won’t be a playoff team in 2019, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to be blowing everything up.

Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen said Friday that the team would seek to move expiring contracts, but had no intention of putting pitchers Noah Syndergaard or Jacob deGrom on the market.

There had been a lot of chatter in recent days about Syndergaard in particular, with rumors swirling that the Mets would consider dealing him. It may still be true, and Van Wagenen could be jockeying for prime negotiating position by saying this aloud. With Syndergaard still under team control through 2021, however, there isn’t a lot of incentive to get rid of him now unless they get a huge offer.
