We don’t know for sure where Noah Syndergaard will pitch in 2022. We’re not even quite certain he’ll be on the mound for the New York Mets at all in 2021. There’s a growing hope he can provide them with some relief assistance late this year. After, his future is cloudy.

Syndergaard has been a star player in New York for several years made largely by his personality. Often vocal and with one of the best nicknames in the game, the man known as “Thor” is possibly headed to free agency this winter.

If he does, these six teams might want to pounce quickly.

Texas Rangers could bring the longtime Mets pitcher back to the Lone Star State

Texans have a stereotype about them even my wife from Southeast Asia is incredibly familiar with. It’s the state with all of the cowboys and beef. Syndergaard, built like a Texan, could be headed back home with a contract signed between him and the Texas Rangers.

From Mansfield, Texas, a suburb near Dallas, this would have Syndergaard going to his hometown club. It would make sense for the Rangers if they’re looking to rebuild quickly. They were major sellers at this year’s trade deadline. However, in their market and with a fresh stadium to pack, impactful deals like this could get fans interested very quickly.

I’m not sure what kind of deal Syndergaard will be looking to land this offseason. If there’s one team willing to maybe overpay, the Rangers could make a lot of sense. Their payroll emptied out with several trades this summer so taking a risk on a hometown kid like Syndergaard could be a good move.

What’s the worst that happens; they lose? They’re already doing it without him.
