’17th season instead of retiring’ Cueto, is a new team available?

Johnny Cueto, 38, who showed poor performance last year, is hoping to extend his career as an active player. However, it is questionable whether he will be able to secure a good contract.

The U.S. MLB Network mentioned on the 6th (Korean time) that Cueto wants his 17th major league season instead of retirement.

“The problem is age and skill. Cueto pitched only 521/3 innings in 13 games (10 starts) for the Miami Marlins last year, and his ERA reached 6.02.라바카지노주소

As a result, Cueto cannot guarantee the signing of a Major League contract. Although starting pitchers are considered to be the golden age, this does not apply to 38-year-old veteran pitchers who have deteriorated their skills.

However, Cueto pitched 1581/3 innings in 25 games (24 starts) in the 2022 season, showing good performance with 8-10 losses and a 3.35 ERA.

In order for Cueto to enter his 17th season, he must persuade him that he can overcome last year’s slump and show his 2022 performance in the upcoming 2024 season.

In his 16th year in the Major League Baseball, Cueto is a right-handed starter who had the best performance even with relatively small stature and not fast balls. He is widely known for his anomalous pitching form.

In 2014, at his peak, he pitched 2432/3 innings in 34 games for the Cincinnati Reds, 20-9 with a 2.25 ERA. At the time, he was second in the Cy Young Award.

Since then, he has consistently maintained his starting rotation and pitched 2,245 innings in 368 games (363 starts) until last year, recording 144 wins and 111 losses and a 3.50 ERA.
