Dodgers leave, disparage…trade pending after 6G, crash of 164km Thor

Thor’ Noah Syndergaard (31, Cleveland Guardians) received a waiting notice for release after 6 games after the trade. 

Cleveland notified Syndergaard of the 온라인카지노 Transfer Designation (DFA) after the Toronto Blue Jays game on the 28th (hereinafter Korean time). If the desired team does not come out during the waiver period, the affiliation is transferred to the minor league or becomes a free agent with complete release. 

Syndergaard started this year with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He signed a one-year, $13 million free agent contract and dreamed of resurrecting at the Dodgers, but he didn’t go his way. He suffered a finger blister injury, and he was sluggish with an earned run average of 7.16 with 1 win and 4 losses in 12 games (55⅓ innings). Eventually, on the 27th of last month, he was traded for shortstop Ahmed Rosario and moved to Cleveland.

After leaving the Dodgers, Syndergaard made comments that seemed to diss the team. According to ‘Cleveland.com’ on the 28th of last month, Syndergaard said, “There have been too many boatloads in the past two years. He thought many people could fix me. Some of them may have been right, but they just didn’t get through to me. My time at the Dodgers didn’t go as planned. I’m disappointed that I didn’t become the pitcher I wanted to be,” he said. 

He tried to make a comeback in Cleveland, but even that wasn’t easy. In six games (33⅓ innings) after the transfer, Syndergaard was 1-2 and had an average ERA of 5.40, failing to show any significant rebound. He struggled with 4 hits (3 homers), 3 walks, 3 strikeouts and 5 runs in 6 innings against Toronto on the 28th, and was notified of DFA after the game. 

Syndergaard’s overall record this year was 2 wins, 6 losses, and an ERA of 6.50 in 18 matches. His slugging allowance increased significantly, reaching 22 home runs and 2.23 home runs per 9 innings in 88⅔ innings. On the other hand, 5.68 strikeouts per 9 innings is a career low. He was a power pitcher who used to compete with powerful pitches, but his velocity has dropped, so he is receiving concentrated hits. 

198cm 102kg tall right-handed pitcher Syndergaard debuted with the New York Mets in 2015. As a fireballer with a high-speed ball of 102 miles (164.2 km) in his prime, he ranked 4th in the National League (NL) Rookie of the Year in the first year of 2015, and in 2015, he won 31 games (183⅔ innings), 14 wins, 9 losses, an average ERA of 2.60, and 218 strikeouts, making him an All-Star. He showed off his potential by placing 8th in the Cy Young Young.

His long blonde hair and muscular body earned him the nickname ‘Thor’, a character in the Marvel movies. He served as the Mets’ main starting pitcher through 2019, but his career took a nosedive after undergoing Tommy John surgery in March 2020. His pitch dropped as he lost his fiery fastball, and his main weapon’s high-speed slider wasn’t the same as before.

His four-seam fastball average velocity fell to 92.3 miles (148.5 km) this year, down 6.4 miles (10.3 km) from his peak of 98.7 miles (158.8 km) in 2016. The slider’s average velocity, which reached 92.3 miles (148.5 km) in 2017, also dropped 7.2 miles (11.6 km) this year to 85.1 miles (137.0 km). His velocity isn’t what it used to be, and his pitching style hasn’t changed, making him a less-than-average pitcher.
