LAD→CLE→waiting for release, ‘6G ERA 5.40’ Thor’s downfall… “It’s different from when it was in its prime.”

Noah Syndergaard has received a pending release notice from the Cleveland Guardians.

Syndergaard started on the 28th (Korean time) in an away game against the Toronto Blue Jays in the 2023 Major League Baseball held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. On this day, he had 4 hits, 3 home runs, 3 walks, 5 runs, and 3 strikeouts in 6 innings.

That game was the last time Syndergaard played in a Cleveland uniform. This is because Cleveland issued a pending release notice to Syndergaard. MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, said, “The contract between Syndergaard and Cleveland was terminated early when the club announced the transfer nomination.”

Syndergaard moved from the Los Angeles Dodgers to Cleveland ahead of the trade deadline. He struggled to maintain his performance. He suffered greatly with an earned run average of 5.40 in six games. During this time, he did not add much to Cleveland, going 1-2.

Even at the time of signing Syndergaard, Cleveland expected Syndergaard to do his part as a starting pitcher. They expected Syndergaard to fill the void left by injuries to Cy Young Award winners Shane Bieber, Triston McKenzie, and Carl Quintril.

Looking at Syndergaard’s history alone, he was worth looking forward to resurrecting. Syndergaard, who made his big league debut with the New York Mets in 2015, commanded the league with a fastball that reached 102 miles (164 km). Syndergaard had a successful debut season with 9 wins and 7 losses. The following year, in 2016, he stood tall as the Mets’ ace with a record of 14 wins and 9 losses with an ERA of 2.60. He was even nicknamed ‘Thor’ after seeing how he pitched with his blonde hair flying.

But Syndergaard’s moment of glory was too brief. In 2020, he underwent elbow ligament splicing surgery (Tommy John surgery) and was on a downward trend. The decline in his restraint was also evident. He dropped to the mid-90s. Having lost his strengths, Syndergaard never regained his former form, and had to part ways with the Mets after the 2021 season.

Syndergaard, who later transferred to the Los Angeles Angels, showed signs of a revival. In the meantime, he seemed to be recovering from the injuries that plagued him. He performed his duty as a starting pitcher while circling the rotation in good health. Syndergaard, who was then traded to the Philadelphia Phillies, proved healthy by playing until the postseason. Syndergaard’s 2022 season record was 10-10 with a 3.94 ERA.메이저사이트

Syndergaard switched teams again in the offseason. The next destination was the Dodgers. At the Dodgers, dubbed the ‘resurrection factory,’ Syndergaard dreamed of another leap forward. However, he continued to slump after slump, and was eventually traded to Cleveland, but received a release notice.

Syndergaard’s record this season is 2-6 with an ERA of 6.50. When you think about the heyday, it’s a shabby report card. MLB.com also pointed out Syndergaard’s sluggishness, saying, “Syndergaard had a hard time finding his pace. There is a distance from his appearance during his Mets days, when he was nicknamed ‘Thor’.”

Cleveland hoped for Syndergaard’s resurgence, but couldn’t wait any longer. “Cleveland also tried to help Syndergaard find consistency. He tried to focus on his athleticism, but hit 10 homers in five starts in August,” MLB.com reports. It seems that there is not enough time to wait any longer.”

On the other hand, if there is no team to transfer Syndergaard’s contract, which has been notified of waiting for release, Syndergaard can be transferred to the minor leagues or become a free agent and sign a contract with a new team.
