Noah Syndergaard is heading west again in free agency.
The 30-year-old righty agreed to a one-year, $13 million contract with the Dodgers on Wednesday that includes $1.5 million in incentives. According to The Post’s Jon Heyman. ESPN was the first to report that Syndergaard was headed to LA
This comes a year after the former Met recovered from Tommy John surgery last winter. He was traded to the Phillies at the trade deadline and helped the club reach the 2022 World Series.
Heyman said Syndergaard sees the Dodgers as the right place because of his excellent pitching record as he hopes to fully recapture the All-Star form he showed with the Mets. He is expected to be part of the Dodgers’ starting rotation.
Syndergaard went 10-10 last season with a 1.25 WHIP and 95 strikeouts in 24 starts with the Angels and Phillies. He appeared in four postseason games for Philadelphia, starting in a 3–2 loss in Game 5 at Houston. Syndergaard pitched just two innings in 2021 after a Tommy John rehab setback.
