The Los Angeles Angels and right-hander Noah Syndergaard have agreed to a one-year, $21 million contract for 2021, CBS Sports HQ’s Jim Bowden confirms. The deal is pending a physical. Syndergaard previously received a qualifying offer from the Mets, which would’ve paid him $18.4 million for the 2022 season.
The signing means that Angels will forfeit their second-highest draft pick in 2022. The Mets in turn will receive a compensatory pick. Syndergaard, 29, pitched just two innings in 2021 as he completed his recovery from Tommy John surgery.
