An American professional baseball who is playing for the current team, Toronto Blue Jays is known for Noah Syndergaard. His playing position is Pitcher. After he shared a photo of himself weight training while dressed as the superhero Thor, due to the similarity between his last name and the fictional location Asgard, he acquired the nickname “Thor”. In his childhood, he strongly disliked the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys while his family liked it very much. When he was seven years old, he hit his first over-the-fence home run. He committed to Dallas Baptist University but elected to sign with the Toronto Blue Jays after high school instead. He was selected by the team in the first round of the 2010 MLB draft and traded him to the Mets in 2012. On 12th May 2015, Noah debuted with the Mets. He also served as their Opening Day starting pitcher in 2017 and 2018. He is the hardest-throwing starting pitcher in Baseball. As per MLB.com’s Statcast Syndergaard’s four-seam fastball averaged 98.3 miles per hour this season, the fifth-fastest of any big league pitcher, while his sinker clocked at an average of 98. Moreover, he was named to the National League All-Star team in 2016 and has won the National League Player of the Week Award four times. He auctions his gloves off to raise money for the Sjogren’s Syndrome Foundation, which helps to fight Sjogren’s disease, an autoimmune disease from which his mother suffers. On 24th March 2020, he was diagnosed with a torn UCL in his right elbow and underwent Tommy John’s surgery on 26th March putting him out for the entire 2020 season.
Noah Syndergaard will miss 2020 Season
Missing from the 2020 New York Mets this year, aside from wins, is the presence of one of their biggest personalities. He has been a part of this club’s rotation for the last half-decade. Unfortunately, Tommy John Surgery came calling and we won’t see him throwing a baseball in a live game until at least 2021. The negative effects have already taken place with the Mets having fewer places to turn when their other starters struggle. He managed to stay healthy throughout 2019 which we can’t say for the two years prior. He made just 7 starts in 2017 and followed it up with 25 in 2018. The injury bug did catch up with Syndergaard earlier this year. Right now, the Mets are feeling the abuse in their rotation.
