Noah Syndergaard Trade Grades: Grading the Trade For the Los Angeles Angels, Philadelphia Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies made some noise today. First, they acquired David Robertson for their putrid bullpen and then they went out and added starting pitching depth by trading for Noah Syndergaard from the Los Angeles Angels.

The Phillies made out like bandits in this deal but the Angels, unfortunately, were not as lucky. Here's how the Noah Syndergaard trade grades out for both sides.

Noah Syndergaard Trade Grades

Phillies Grade: A

First, the Philadelphia Phillies are landing fireballer Noah Syndergaard. He's been okay in his first year back from injury as he is pitching to a 3.83 ERA in 15 starts so far in the 2022 campaign. Syndergaard missed all of 2020 and pitched just two innings in 2021. He doesn't need to be the Thor of old though as both Aaron Nola and Zack Wheeler have been excellent at the top of the rotation for Philly this season.

Also, the Phillies being able to get anything for Mickey Moniak is pretty impressive. The now 24-year-old is hitting just .129 at the major league level with a .386 OPS over 47 games in three seasons.

Angels Grade: C

As previously mentioned, Mickey Moniak isn't really moving the needle at all as he's a warm body at this point in his career. In AAA he's looked a little bit better hitting five homers with an .859 OPS but at this point, he'd have to be a late bloomer for the Angels to get any value.

As for Jadiel Sanchez, he is still a youngster at 21 years old. He's in A ball this year and has a .714 OPS in 38 games played. If either of these two guys make it, Sanchez is likely the one with the higher ceiling. Sure, Noah Syndergaard wasn't likely yielding much but the return here was still a little underwhelming for me all things considered.
