  • Noah Syndergaard: Released by Guardians

    The Guardians released Syndergaard on Wednesday.

    The veteran right-hander was removed from Cleveland's 40-man roster over the weekend and is now officially a free agent after passing through waivers unclaimed. Syndergaard has posted a 6.50 ERA in 18 starts this season for the Dodgers and Guardians but could latch on with some team in need of an arm to eat innings.

  • Guardians' Noah Syndergaard: Loses 40-man roster spot

    The Guardians designated Syndergaard for assignment Sunday, Julia Kreuz of MLB.com reports.

    After being acquired from the Dodgers in late July, Syndergaard made six starts for the Guardians. He was inconsistent during his time with Cleveland and will lose his spot on the 40-man roster after giving up five runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three over six innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Blue Jays. Cal Quantrill (shoulder) is on track to return from the 15-day injured list this week, so the Guardians no longer had room in the rotation for Syndergaard. If Syndergaard clears waivers, it wouldn't be surprising if he elects free agency in order to seek out another opportunity elsewhere during the final month of the regular season.

  • Guardians' Noah Syndergaard: Designated for assignment

    Syndergaard was designated for assignment by the Guardians on Sunday, Julia Kreuz of MLB.com reports.

    Syndergaard was traded from the Dodgers to the Guardians in late July, and he made six starts for his new club. He was inconsistent during his time with Cleveland and will lose his spot on the 40-man roster after giving up five runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three in six innings Sunday against the Blue Jays. Cal Quantrill (shoulder) is slated to return from the injured list this week, so Syndergaard was no longer needed as a starter. If he clears waivers, it wouldn't be surprising to see Syndergaard elect free agency so he can seek out another organization for the final month of the regular season.

  • Guardians' Noah Syndergaard: Quality start against former club

    Syndergaard came away with a no-decision Tuesday in the Guardians' win over the Dodgers, giving up three runs on four hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out four.

    The veteran right-hander wasn't dominant, managing only nine swinging strikes among his 95 pitches, but Syndergaard did deliver his first quality start since April. He's alternated solid outings with poor ones since coming over to Cleveland at the trade deadline, but his overall 4.94 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 15:7 K:BB through 27.1 innings makes him an unappealing fantasy option in most formats. He'll look to build some momentum in his next start, likely to come this weekend in Toronto.

  • Guardians' Noah Syndergaard: Falls to Reds

    Syndergaard (1-2) took the loss Wednesday, allowing six runs (five earned) on eight hits and two walks over 4.1 innings against Cincinnati. He struck out three.

    Syndergaard allowed just one run through his first three innings before the Reds broke the game open with four runs on a pair of homers in the fourth. The 30-year-old Syndergaard's now allowed 12 earned runs through his first four starts (21.1 innings) with Cleveland. His ERA sits at an unsightly 6.57 with a 1.45 WHIP and 49:15 K:BB across 16 starts (76.2 innings) this season between the Guardians and Dodgers. Syndergaard's currently lined up for a home matchup with those same Dodgers in his next outing.

  • Guardians' Noah Syndergaard: Collects first win since April

    Syndergaard (1-1) earned the win Thursday, allowing one run on six hits and two walks over 5.2 innings in a 4-3 victory over Toronto. He struck out five.

    Syndergaard struggled early but settled in after that, hurling three consecutive 1-2-3 innings before once again running into trouble in the sixth. He was replaced by Nick Sandlin with two outs in the frame, just missing out on a quality start. Syndergaard has allowed one run or fewer in two of his first three starts with the Guardians, and Friday's win was his first since April 30.

  • Guardians' Noah Syndergaard: Falls to White Sox on Saturday

    Syndergaard (1-5) pitched six innings against the White Sox on Saturday, allowing five runs on nine hits and no walks while striking out three batters.

    While Syndergaard was able to give Cleveland decent length, throwing 83 pitches over six frames, he had trouble keeping the ball in the park. The right-hander served up four homers, including three across the third and fourth innings. Syndergaard at least seemed to be physically fine after departing his previous contest as a result of taking a comebacker off his lower right leg, but this was a step back compared to that outing, during which he allowed just one run over 5.1 frames. The veteran hurler is getting a shot in the Guardians' rotation due to a slew of injuries to other starters, but he's struggled to get big-league hitters out this season, compiling a 6.75 ERA over 14 starts between Cleveland and the Dodgers.

  • Guardians' Noah Syndergaard: Confirmed to start Saturday

    Syndergaard (leg) will start Saturday's home game against the White Sox, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

    He exited his Guardians debut Monday in the bottom of the sixth inning after being struck in the lower right leg by a comebacker, but he apparently suffered little more than a minor bruise. Syndergaard, who struck out zero batters in 5.1 innings Monday, has struck out just 21 batters over his last 44.2 frames. On a positive note, the right-hander did showcase a bump in velocity Monday. Per Bell, his four-seamer averaged 93.5 miles per hour (up 0.9 mph from his season average), his three cutters averaged 91.3 mph (up 2.0 mph) and his sinker averaged 93.9 mph (up 1.6 mph).

  • Guardians' Noah Syndergaard: Exits after being hit by comebacker

    Syndergaard exited Monday's start against the Astros in the bottom of the sixth inning after being struck by a comebacker in his lower right leg, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

    Syndergaard was on the 15-day injured list with a finger injury when he was traded from the Dodgers to the Guardians on Wednesday, but he was activated to make his Cleveland debut Monday. The 30-year-old was relatively productive prior to his premature exit, allowing a run on two hits and two walks while failing to strike out a batter in 5.1 innings. Syndergaard gave up at least five runs in each of his final three starts with the Dodgers, but his first outing with Cleveland was encouraging. However, the exact nature and severity of his injury are unclear, and whether he'll be able to make his next turn through the rotation remains to be seen.
