Noah Syndergaard has been designated for assignment by the Guardians.
The 30-year-old starter will look for a new home after making five starts with the Guardians. He had a 4.94 ERA and 15/7 K/BB in 27.1 innings.
Despite the solid outing, Syndergaard's season-long numbers continue to be underwhelming, with a 6.42 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP over 17 starts.
His low strikeout rate is just 5.77 K/9 but he has pitched better since joining the Guardians. Overall, his performance has been disappointing for fantasy owners.
