The deal is worth $13 million with $500K bonuses for topping 130, 150, and 170 innings, adding up to a total of $1.5 million in incentives.
Syndergaard won 10 games during the regular season with the Angels and the defending National League champion Philadelphia Phillies.
The veteran appeared in 25 games, with 24 of them being starts and posted a 3.94 ERA, striking out 95 batters in 134.2 innings of work.
While it seems like more of a bargain-type move on the surface, the deal could end up working out quite well for the Dodgers.
Los Angeles was in desperate need of starting pitching and found somebody to fill a hole and give them some much needed innings coverage.
The team won 111 games during the regular season, but fell short in the NLDS against the San Diego Padres, losing the series in four games.
Syndergaard does bring some valuable postseason experience, with a lifetime 2.62 ERA in postseason play.
