David Stearns continues to do his due diligence exploring the trade market...

In a recent report, the Brewers were showing interest in Giants starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner. Now, they're looking closely at Mets starters Noah Syndergaard and Zack Wheeler, according to Jon Morosi of MLB.com.

Morosi writes "Since the Mets have not committed to a full rebuild, they probably would need to acquire at least one Major League-ready starter for Syndergaard in order to justify moving him. A trade of Wheeler wouldn’t preclude the Mets from moving Syndergaard, too, since Wheeler isn’t being counted on as a long-term fixture in the rotation. A trade match may prove difficult since the Mets are likely to base much of their valuation of Syndergaard on the 2.93 ERA he compiled over his first four Major League seasons. Interested GMs are more likely to reference his career-worst 4.68 ERA this season, although some clubs believe Syndergaard has great bounce-back potential."

Syndergaard is under contract through the 2021 season.

Are you willing to go after either of these guys?
