Dodgers: Noah Syndergaard Shares that Playing for LA Has Always Been A Dream
After signing with the Dodgers this offseason, Noah Syndergaard hopes to make the most out of his one-year contract in Los Angeles
The pitcher came out to the Dodgers FanFest on Saturday to share his excitement as he prepares for the season with his new team. Syndergaard expressed how he felt when he first got the call from the Dodgers:
“I mean it was kinda a no brainer to me, I mean to me this has been my dream to play for the Dodgers since I first stepped foot onto this field in 2015. Even as the opposition being able to step foot this field and feel the energy from the crowd and the fans. It’s awesome I can’t wait to be on the field and wear this jersey in front of you guys.”
The 30-year-old will be gearing up with an All-Star rotation of players including Julio Urías, Clayton Kershaw, and Tony Gonsolin.
After Los Angeles lost Tyler Anderson and Andrew Heaney in free agency this winter, Syndergaard hopes to step up in the most effective way possible.
Last season, he threw 134 innings between the Phillies and the Angels while posting a 3.94 ERA.
Syndergaard was on his way to becoming one of the best pitchers in the league before undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2020. As he continues to rebuild his strength and return to his prime self, the Dodgers can aim to get more out of the veteran pitcher this season.
