‘Degrom OUT’ Texas laughs at 420 billion shortstop “MVP-level performance even after taking a month off”

Texas, which is running first in the American League West this season,메이저사이트 recently faced bad news. Free agent pitcher Jacob deGrom (35), who was recruited for 5 years and 185 million dollars (approximately 236.8 billion won) this year, was out of the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery (elbow ligament joint surgery) on the 13th (Korean time). done. Although the operation was successfully completed, there remains a tedious rehabilitation period of at least 12 months and a maximum of 18 months. The goal is to return for the 2025 season, but by then deGrom will be 37 years old.

There is another large free agent who brings comfort to Texas. Free agent shortstop Corey Seager (29) transferred from the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2022 for 10 years and 325 million dollars (about 416 billion won), the largest in Texas club history.

Seager appeared in 151 games last year, his first year, posting a batting average of 0.245, 33 home runs and 83 RBIs. The home run was his career high. His performance stood out even more because he was a shortstop with a heavy defensive burden.

This year, the second season, we are doing better. As of the 18th, Seager has participated in 39 games and is recording a batting average of 0.348, 10 homers and 37 RBIs. His OPS (on-base percentage and slugging percentage) is a whopping 1.048.

Seager, who was the 2020 National League Championship Series (NLCS) and World Series Most Valuable Player (MVP) during his time with the Dodgers, was expected to improve his performance due to the major league defensive shift rule banned this season. American local media predicted that Seager would hit at least 20 more hits in one season.

American online media Softsky Da evaluated, “Considering that Seager was away for about a month (April 13-May 17) due to a hamstring injury at the beginning of this season, the current performance is an MVP-level performance in the regular season.” did.

The reason Seager is attracting more attention is that other shortstops who recently signed large contracts are not performing well enough to hear the sound of “eating and bouncing” this season.

As of the 18th, Francisco Lindor (30, New York Mets), the “best shortstop in the major leagues” selected by Ohda City, an American statistical media outlet, is recording a batting average of 0.211 this season with 12 home runs and 44 RBIs. OPS is just 0.702. He fell short of the 10-year, $341 million (approximately 436.5 billion won) contract he signed with the Mets in 2021.

Shortstop Zander Bogarts (31), who signed a free agent contract with San Diego this season, is also batting 0.264 with 7 home runs and 24 RBIs. Bogatz signed an 11-year, $280 million (approximately 358.4 billion won) contract.토토사이트주소

Shortstop Trey Turner (30), who left the Dodgers and moved to Philadelphia this year, is similar. He has a batting average of 0.247, 7 home runs and 21 RBIs, not befitting an 11-year, 300 million dollar (approximately 384 billion won) free agent contract. OPS is only 0.683.

This is the reason why the Texas club’s executives, who sighed due to deGrom’s injury, can not lose their smile while watching Seager’s performance.
