Yesterday, the Cleveland Guardians and the Los Angeles Dodgers made a trade. It sent Cleveland Guardians SS, Amed Rosario to the Los Angeles Dodgers, in exchange for Los Angeles Dodgers SP, Noah Syndergaard, and cash considerations.
The Guardians received Amed Rosario in the trade with the Mets for Francisco Lindor, in 2020-2021. Amed Rosario isn't having a season he'd like. In 94 games for Rosario, he's slashing .265/.369/.369, to go along with that he's hit 3 HR's, 40 RBI's, and a .675 OPS.
For Syndergaard, he signed a 1-year-deal worth $13M, last offseason with the Dodgers. He was hoping for a "prove it" year with the Dodgers. He hasn't had that. In 12 starts for Syndergaard, he has a 1-4 record, 55.1 IP, 7.16 ERA, 38 SO, and a 1.45 WHIP.
This is a pretty even deal for both sides. For the Dodgers, they've been trying to find a shortstop, and they finally get one in Amed Rosario. For the Guardians, they get a starting pitcher who they don't have to commit to, as Noah Syndergaard is a free agent after this year. It'll be very interesting as to how this trade pans out for both sides.
