Michael Conforto Noah Syndergaard METS TREATED ART September 2021

Michael Conforto Noah Syndergaard METS TREATED ART September 2021

The Mets have not made final decisions on qualifying offers, but are leaning toward making those offers to Michael Conforto and Noah Syndergaard, according to a person with direct knowledge of the team’s thinking.

The deadline for extending the $18.4 million qualifying offer is Sunday at 5 p.m. ET.

Conforto is the easy call, because both outcomes are positive for the team: He would either accept the one-year contract to play right field for the Mets, or sign elsewhere. If he does the latter, the Mets would receive a compensatory draft pick.

The decision on Syndergaard is more complex, because pitchers returning from serious injuries typically command less money (Corey Kluber — a two-time Cy Young Award winner — got $11 million on a one-year deal from the Yankees last year).

Syndergaard underwent Tommy John surgery in 2020 and returned late last season, not yet ready to throw breaking balls.

The Mets could negotiate a lower deal with Syndergaard. But given the team’s need for pitching and Syndergaard’s stated desire to stay, the lean as of today is to simply make the qualifying offer.
