Dodgers: New LA Pitcher Could Get His First Start In Seattle This Upcoming Season
One cool thing about being a part of a major league baseball team is all the cool parks and stadiums you get to visit.
Every single park is unique from the backdrop of the city of Pittsburgh or Detroit’s Comerica Park. Or what about watching a beautiful sunset over Los Angeles at our very own Dodger Stadium?
MLB.com recently put out an article listing the biggest stars that will be taking the field this upcoming season for the first time in several parks. Clayton Kershaw made the list for never getting a start in Fenway Park in Boston or Camden Yards, home of the Orioles even after 14 seasons in the major leagues.
But the article also pointed out that across his last eight years of playing in the major leagues, 30-year-old pitcher, Noah Syndergaard has yet to take the mound in T-Mobile Park, home of the Seattle Mariners.
The Dodgers will play in the Pacific Northwest Sept. 15-17 where Syndergaard could get one of the three starts.
With the departure of Tyler Anderson to the Angels and the potential loss of Walker Buehler this season due to Tommy John, the Dodgers knew they needed one more pitcher.
So, in mid-December, Los Angeles signed the right-handed pitcher to a one-year, $13 million contract. He will most likely join Julio Urias, Tony Gonsolin, Dustin May, and Clayton Kershaw for the upcoming 2023 season.
In his most recent season with the Phillies, he posted a 4.12 ERA with a 5-2 record and 31 strikeouts across 10 games played. After a tough year, he’s hoping the Dodgers can be the ones to turn him back around and dip into that 2.00 ERA or below like when he was with the Mets back in 2016 and 2017.
