Following the signings of both Rick Porcello and Michael Wacha, the New York Mets will likely need to create an open spot within their starting pitching rotation.
Currently, the Mets have Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Marcus Stroman, Steven Matz, Porcello, and Wacha as options to start in 2020. Since they’re not planning to begin next season with a six-man rotation, they’ll need to move one of the names above. They can do so by either transitioning one of them to the bullpen or through the trade market.
According to Jon Heyman of MLB Network, Stroman and Matz are candidates that could potentially be dealt.
