631.2 billion won super rookie Rodriguez became the main model of MLB The Show 23.
Julio Rodriguez, a super-special rookie in the Major League, has become the main model of “MLB The Show 23 MLB.”
On the 11th (Korea Standard Time), FOX Sports, a local media outlet in the U.S., said, “Rodrides has become the main cover model for the MLB The Show, a series of PlayStation baseball games.”
The MLB The Show cover model has a different meaning as the best players of Major League Baseball, including Fernando Tatis Jr. in 2021 and Shohei Ohtani last year, were selected as starters.
Rodriguez, a native of the Dominican Republic, made his big league debut last season, signing with the Seattle Mariners in July 2017 for a $1.75 million down payment.
He played 132 games with a batting average of 0.284, 145 hits, 28 home runs, 75 RBIs, 84 runs, 25 steals, and OPS 0.853, winning the Silver Slugger in the outfield category along with the All-Star and becoming the American League Rookie of the Year award.
With Rodriguez’s performance in the offense and defense department, Seattle signed a mega contract with him for up to $470 million (about 631.2 billion) for 17 years.
