MLB Insider: New York Mets Have Scouted These Two Starting Pitchers

The New York Mets’ pitching depth is now a major concern after losing Max Scherzer for six to eight weeks due to an oblique strain.

And although the trade deadline is still several months away, there are two starting pitchers on tanking teams, who will likely be available on the block sooner rather than later.

Oakland Athletics ‘Frankie Montas and Cincinnati Reds’ Tyler Mahle were both recently scouted by the Mets, as New York Post columnist Jon Heyman reported.

Adding Montas would be a significant move for the Mets, as he is one of the best young starters in the game of baseball. The 29-year-old has a 3.67 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 53 strikeouts across eight starts in 2022. Last season, the righty went 13-9 with a 3.37 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 207 strikeouts across 187 innings.
