Arizona dispatched special assistant Todd Greene and two other scouts. They saw Syndergaard facing right-hander Logan Verrett on a back field, as well as Kevin Plawecki behind the plate. Former Mets GM Joe McIlvaine was on hand representing the Mariners.
The Mariners and Diamondbacks are the two most likely trade partners for the Mets if they upgrade from Ruben Tejada, which remains a possibility. Arizona has shortstops Didi Gregorius and Chris Owings, while the Mariners are looking to trade Nick Franklin.
