Under the radar trade candidates

From Nightengale’s Notebook, USA TODAY Sports’ subscriber-only MLB feature:

Outfielder Trey Mancini, Orioles: The Orioles shouldn’t trade him. He means too much to the organization and this is a team that has stunned everyone by hovering around .500. Still, baseball is a cold-blooded business.

Starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard, Angels: He no longer blows hitters away with his fastball. He is not considered an ace or even a number 2 pitcher. But oh, has he learned to pitch with his off-speed stuff. He would be a nice number 3 starter for any contender.

Starting pitcher Jose Urquidy, Astros: The Astros are so deep they don’t really need him. He has a career of 3.66 ERA, qualifying for arbitration for the first time this winter, and also has post-season experience. It is offered in package deals for a slugger.

Aid market loses potential trading ship

One current closer who certainly won’t be traded on the TBEN is Daniel Bard of the Colorado Rockies. Bard, who has a 3-3 record this season with 21 saves and a 1.91 ERA in 37 games, signed a two-year extension on Saturday that will keep him in Colorado until the 2024 season.
