The right-hander of the Los Angeles Angels, Noah Syndergaard, has something pending with Carlos Correa after shortstop said that Derek Jeter he didn’t deserve any of his defensive accolades.
When MLB Network asked Syndergaard which player he would like to strike out, he replied “Carlos Correa.”
“Not just for the obvious reason, but simply because of what he said about Derek Jeter not deserving of his Golden Gloves. I think it was a ridiculous thing to say.”
Syndergaard has never faced a division team where he will play, namely Seattle Marienros, Anaheim Angels, Houston Astros and Texas Rangers.
Correa, who won his first Gold and Platinum Gloves last season with the Houston Astros, questioned on a Spanish-language podcast whether Jeter should have won any of his five Gold Gloves.
When asked about the comments, Jeter took the right path and said the comments did not even deserve a response.
The New York Yankees legend and Hall of Famer was a 14-time All-Star. However, his minus-162 defensive runs saved from 1995-14 are the lowest total among 31 qualified players at his position, according to FanGraphs.
Competitor. Closer. Champion.
Congratulations on your retirement, Wader. pic.twitter.com/uIZ6uBTiGc

Noah Syndergaard when asked who he’d want to strikeout the most in the MLB right now with Thor’s hammer.
“Carlos Correa for obvious reasons, and for what he said about Derek Jeter.”
