Could it be that the cause of the unusual sluggishness was due to an injury? ‘Thor’ Noah Syndergaard (31, LA Dodgers) will eventually be on the injured list.
MLB.com and ESPN announced on the 8th (Korean time) that “Syndergaard was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a blister on his right index finger.”
Syndergaard started in an away game against the Cincinnati Reds on the 8th and collapsed with 7 hits, 2 homers, 3 strikeouts and 6 runs in 3 innings. The Dodgers, whose starter collapsed early, lost 4 straight games in a 6-8 endgame loss even though the batting line hit 3 home runs.
Syndergaard has been in extreme slump lately. On May 27, he scored 5 runs or more in 3 consecutive games, following the match against the Tampa Bay Rays (6 runs in 6 innings) and the 31st against the Washington Nationals (5 runs in 5 innings). His earned run average in his last three games is 10.93 (17 earned runs in 14 innings). His season earned run average rose to 7.16 before he knew it.
Syndergaard, who made his major league debut with a 9-7 record with a 3.24 ERA for the New York Mets in 2015, earned the nickname ‘Thor’ for his image of throwing fastballs with long golden hair. Syndergaard, who had the best season with a 14-9 ERA of 2.60 in 2016, his second year, only played 7 games due to an injury in 2017, but in 2018, 13-4 with an ERA of 3.30, Texas Rangers) with the best one-two punch in the league.
However, after undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2020, Syndergaard’s career took a downward spiral. Syndergaard, who returned in the second half of the 2021 season, only allowed two runs in two innings in two games, and signed a one-year, $21 million contract with the Los Angeles Angels after turning down a qualifying offer from the Mets after the season.
Last year, Syndergaard played 15 games for the Angels and recorded an average ERA of 5-8 with a 3.83 ERA. The final result of the season was 10-10, with an ERA of 3.94, and it was a double-digit win again after 3 years, but it was a disappointing result compared to the value of the name.
Syndergaard signed a one-year, $13 million contract with the Dodgers ahead of this season. He chose free agency even though some teams offered more money and larger contracts. However, looking at Syndergaard’s appearance so far, that choice is becoming the wrong one. Syndergaard, who played in 12 games this season and recorded an average ERA of 7.16 with 1 win and 4 losses, suffered a finger blister injury to make matters worse.메이저사이트
Meanwhile, the Dodgers called up Taylor Scott (31) to replace Syndergaard. Scott, who signed a minor contract with the Dodgers ahead of this season, recorded 1⅔ innings, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts and no runs against the New York Yankees on the 4th.
