Noah Syndergaard joins the LA Dodger

After being signed to a $13 million contract with the Dodgers for one year, Noah Syndergaard shows how important he is to the Los Angeles team.

After pitching for the Los Angeles Angels and Philadelphia Phillies last season, when he had a 10-10 record and a 3.94 ERA in 24 starts and 134.2 innings, Syndergaard hopes to approach 2023 with the capacity to raise the velocity of his fastball by returning to previous training techniques. 

Syndergaard’s statement  He told Dodger Blue, “The old me, the velocity is one thing. But coming back from Tommy John, about month 13 or 14, I was throwing 97-98 (mph) in bullpens and then I had a little setback.

The LA Dodgers posted a tweet of Noah joining their team officially. This is met with a mix review as some are happy and some felt that he betrayed his old New York team. There was a fan that even commented “welcome to the Mickey Mouse House Club.”
