- on Jul 27, 2023
Noah Syndergaard (31), who has had a terrible offseason, has been sold. The Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired shortstop Ahmed Rosario (28) from the Cleveland Indians in exchange for Syndergaard.
The Los Angeles Dodgers and Cleveland completed a one-for-one trade on July 27 (ET), Fox Sports reported. Syndergaard for Rosario.온라인카지노
With this deal, the Dodgers have added another beast to their recent acquisition of Enrique Hernandez. Rosario is a right-handed hitter who is strong against left-handed pitching at shortstop.
The Dodgers had a hole at shortstop and added Rosario after Hernandez. This is a signing that could have come at a price.
What’s surprising is that the price was Syndergaard. While Rosario is a “half-year rental” who is about to hit free agency, it’s surprising to see Syndergaard in return.
Syndergaard is a pitcher who has already been pushed out of the starting rotation and is set to become a free agent after this season. This is a discard card.
After trying to bounce back, Syndergaard has fallen apart this season, going 1-4 with a 7.16 ERA in 55 1/3 innings pitched in 12 games.
Despite his lack of defense and power, Rosario did well against left-handed pitching, batting .303 with a .345 on-base percentage and an .822 OPS.
With Hernandez and Rosario in the fold, the Dodgers will now look to bolster their starting pitching. Lucas Giolito and others have been mentioned.
