Reports: Noah Syndergaard Bolts Mets For 1-Year, $21 Million Contract With Angels

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Thor is leaving the Mets.

Noah Syndergaard has reportedly reached a one-year, $21 million deal with the Los Angeles Angels.

The veteran right-hander pitched just two innings last season for the Mets following his recovery from Tommy John surgery.

Despite his recent injury problems, Syndergaard, 29, was tendered a one-year, $18.4 million qualifying offer by the Mets.

After the signing becomes official, the Angels will forfeit their second-round draft pick in 2022. The Mets, in turn, will receive a compensatory pick.

Known for his blazing fastball and golden locks, Syndergaard went 47-31 with a 3.32 ERA in 121 appearances, including 120 starts, over parts of six seasons with the Mets.
