Noah Syndergaard is changing coasts.
The former Mets star pitcher has agreed to a deal with the Los Angeles Angels pending a physical, The Post’s Joel Sherman confirmed. ESPN reported the deal is for one year and is worth $21 million.
Syndergaard had until Wednesday to accept the Mets’ qualifying offer of $18.4 million. The Mets will receive a compensatory pick between the second and third round of the MLB Draft if the deal goes through.
Syndergaard burst onto the scene as a starter for the Mets in 2015, helping the team reach the World Series that year and making the National League All-Star team in 2016. However, his career has been defined by injuries, having missed time in every year since then. In 2020, he underwent Tommy John surgery and only pitched two innings for the Mets in 2021.
He is still only 29 years old, and theoretically could have plenty left in the tank if he can stay healthy.
The Angels’ pitching staff struggled badly in 2021 outside of two-way star Shohei Ohtani, and now have a deal with one of the bigger names in the market.
