‘Syndergaard sold’ LAD signs Rosario to ‘bolster infield’
Noah Syndergaard (31), who was having a terrible season, was 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.
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.카지노
Syndergaard’s resurgence has been short-lived, with a 1-4 record and a 7.16 ERA in 55 1/3 innings pitched in 12 games this season.
Despite his lack of defense and power, he has performed 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.
