Dodgers News: Noah Syndergaard’s Fastball Velocity is Already Trending Up for LA

Los Angeles made a quiet, but significant signing this offseason by acquiring pitcher Noah Syndergaard to a one-year deal. 

Last season, Syndergaard threw 134.2 innings between the Phillies and the Angels while posting a 3.94 ERA. Now that he is on the Dodgers, he hopes to improve his game with some help from the team’s pitching coaches.

One of Syndergaard’s most prominent issues was a drop in velocity. In his introductory press conference, one of the main things he addressed was getting his velocity back up. According to manager Dave Roberts, the 30–year-old is already making strides. 

 In 2022, Syndergaard averaged around 94 mph with his fastballs, which was about 5 mph less than his previous peak form.  After Los Angeles lost Tyler Anderson and Andrew Heaney, Syndergaard hopes to step up in the most effective way possible.

As he continues to rebuild his strength and return to his prime self, the Dodgers can expect to get more out of the veteran pitcher this season.
