Noah Syndergaard, Dodgers reach deal, sources say

Right-hander Noah Syndergaard and the Los Angeles Dodgers are in agreement on a one-year contract, sources told ESPN, as the 30-year-old hopes to be the latest pitcher to find a midcareer renaissance with the team well-known for extracting the best from talented arms.

Syndergaard is expected to join a Dodgers rotation that includes All-Stars Julio Urías, Clayton Kershaw and Tony Gonsolin….

Last season, Syndergaard signed a one-year, $21 million deal with the Angels and started 15 games before a trade-deadline deal sent him to the Philadelphia Phillies. He threw 134⅔ innings between the teams—his highest figure since 2019—and posted a 3.94 ERA.

Syndergaard was decent last year and perhaps there might be some improvement if he can get some velocity back. His fastball average velocity has dropped about 5 miles per hour. He did go essentially two years without pitching so perhaps we will see an uptick although that's not usually how it goes.

If anyone can get the most out of Syndergaard, it's probably the Dodgers. One-year deal makes sense for both sides.

One of the great "What Ifs?" of recent years (as well as a interesting and likable guy). The Mets threw up their hands and all-but-called a blowout injury due to his intransigence with regard to his workout regimen and approach to rehabbing (I have no idea if Thor's workout habits and max-effort approach to pitching had anything to do with his injury, but I do know the Mets blasted him in the press about it). I'll be rooting for him. Hopefully he adapts to his new velocity reality. Even in his salad days, he never seemed to have a Plan B when he couldn't blow the four-seamer by hitters. Maybe he picks up a thing or two about pitch selection and working with what you got from Kershaw.

Now that they are all gone, we can look back and see that the Mets had their rotation of deGrom, Thor, Wheeler, Harvey and Matz for 3 turns through from April, 7 2018 (Wheeler's first start of the season was on the 11th) through April 24, 2018 when Harvey was demoted to the bullpen.

Reportedly other teams offered more - and I believe it. This is a good price for a permanently diminished Thor and robbery for his ceiling.

Wasn't there a report he was working out at driveline this offseason? He could see a return of at least some of the lost velocity

Hope he can come back as an effective pitcher, he's definitely one of the coolest looking MLBers of recent years. LA has lots of good starters and Buehler will be back at some point. Not sure what's up with May, I remember a minor injury at the end of the season, and he didn't play in the postseason, but that only lasted four games.

The Dodgers as a team had a ####### 150 ERA+ last year!!

It's good to be the king.

LAD pitchers on the road: 207/271/331, 68 sOPS+, 2.54 ERA.

They gave up just 8 HR in 361 PA at Coors; 1 in 101 at Wrigley; 0 in 103 at Nats.
