Before the Phillies acquired Noah Syndergaard, they were in on these pitchers

Prior to landing Noah Syndergaard in a trade with the Los Angeles Angels, the Philadelphia Phillies were in on a variety of other veteran starting pitchers.

Susan Slusser of The San Francisco Chronicle was the first to report that the Phillies had interest in Carlos Rodón. The 29-year-old leads all pitchers in baseball with a 4.2 fWAR, so he certainly would have been an excellent addition to go with Zack Wheeler and Aaron Nola. But with that, the price for Rodón likely was very high, and given that he can opt out and become a free agent this offseason, it’s not surprising that no one met the asking price for him.
