2. Noah Syndergaard

Sticking with starting pitching, the Dodgers thought Syndergaard would give them a boost at the back of the rotation last season after seeing what he did with Philadelphia in the 2022 season.

However, that dream never materialized as the former All-Star pitcher struggled in 12 starts with the Dodgers. Syndergaard had a 1-4 record with a career-worst 7.16 ERA and allowed 12 home runs across 55.1 innings.

The right-handed starting pitcher didn’t spend the entire season with the Dodgers, as they traded him to the Cleveland Guardians at the deadline. 

Syndergaard didn’t have much luck with Cleveland either, as he had a 5.40 ERA (7.14 FIP) and gave up 10 home runs in 33.1 innings (six starts). The 31-year-old Syndergaard could still help a team looking for pitching depth sometime this season. However, does he have enough in the tank to be a consistent starter at this point in his career?
