The Major League Baseball (MLB) is just around the corner of the spring camp. Players who have yet to find a bird’s nest are drawing keen attention even in the local area.마카오카지노
MLB.COM, the official website of Major League Baseball (MLB), said on the 12th (Korea time), “We expect where the remaining top six free agents (FAs) will sign.” “The offseason is nearing its end, but there are still some famous players who are still the market. We asked 43 MLB.COM employees about the expected destination of 6 FA.”
The six players are Cody Bellinger and Matt Chapman, Blake Snell and Jordan Montgomery, J.D. Martinez and Jorge Solaire.
Since Ryu Hyun-jin has yet to find a new team, attention is focusing on the pitchers among them. Media outlets selected the Los Angeles Angels and the Texas Rangers as new destinations for Snell and Montgomery, respectively.
“The starting lineup has been a problem for the Angels for several years. Despite the fact that Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout have been together for six seasons, the postseason drought has increased to nine years due to injuries and rotation problems,” the media said. “After Otani moved to the Dodgers, the Angels have yet to make a big difference this offseason.”
Snell is a card that will definitely increase the weight of the starting lineup. He posted a career-high 71 wins and 55 losses with 3.20 ERA, and pitched well last year with 14 wins and nine losses and ERA of 2.25, taking charge of 180 innings in 32 games. He struck out a whopping 234 strikeouts.
Many teams were mentioned, including the San Francisco Giants, New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies, and Toronto Blue Jays, but San Francisco and Yankees were the second-most voted teams after the Angels.
More similar to Ryu’s, Montgomery (32). Having recorded 38 wins, 34 losses and ERA 3.68, he pitched well last year with 10-11 losses and ERA 3.20. It was his first 10 wins since his debut.
“Montgomery helped the team win its first World Series after being traded from St. Louis to Texas,” the media said. “Texas is unlikely to return to the rotation until the middle of the season after elbow and back surgery, respectively.”
Coincidentally, both Snell and Montgomery are in the same “Boras division” as Ryu Hyun-jin. While similar or more incompetent players are searching for new teams one by one, word on their contracts is still quiet. Boras, dubbed the “devil agent” by clubs, is in no hurry to increase players’ ransom. Besides the two, Bellinger and Chapman are also Boras’ clients. Coincidentally, they were all included on the list.
There may be more waiting. MLB.COM predicted on the 21st of last month that Boras is not afraid to wait until February or March for the FA contract.
The plan is to engage in tug-of-war until the end of the contract period and achieve the best contract terms. Although it seems a bit reckless, Boras has always produced the most satisfactory results for players in that way.
Ryu’s contract is also being delayed. Perhaps it is time for Ryu to sign after Snell and Montgomery, who are garnering better reviews in the market, find their new destination. With most teams set to start spring camp, the transfer market is still quiet. Ryu will likely need more time to endure.
