MLB’s worst run, Davis finally announced his retirement
Chris Davis (35, Baltimore Orioles), one of the worst eat-and-run players in the MLB, finally announced his retirement.
The Baltimore club officially announced Tuesday that Davis has decided to retire.
“I’ve decided to retire because I haven’t played for a long time due to injuries and recent hip surgery,” Davis told the club. “I’m grateful to the Baltimore team, teammates and coaches.”
Davis, who stepped on the big league stage with the Texas Rangers in 2008, wore a Baltimore uniform through a 2011 trade.
After moving to Baltimore, Davis played very well.
Davis, who had 33 home runs and 85 RBIs in 2012, had 53 home runs and 138 RBIs in 2013, ranking first in the Major League in home runs and RBIs. He was named the All-Star in 2013 and ranked third in the American League Most Valuable Player (MVP) vote.
Davis, who had slowed down with 26 home runs in 2014, hit 47 home runs in 2015, becoming the home run king again.
Davis signed a large contract with Baltimore in 2016 worth $161 million (185 billion won) in total for seven years.
However, he suffered from injuries and sluggishness after signing a large contract and was stigmatized as “eat and run.”
Davis, who had a downward trend with 38 home runs in 2016 and 26 home runs in 2017, was sluggish with a batting average of 0.168 16 home runs and 49 RBIs in 2018. He had the lowest batting average among the batters who filled the regular at bat.
In 2019, he suffered no hits in 62 at-bats and 54 at-bats. His performance that year was 0.179 with 12 homers and 36 RBIs.
Even last year, when he played 60 games per team in the aftermath of Corona 19, Davis was on the injured list twice due to injury to his left knee, playing only 16 games, and batting average remained at 0.115.
After entering only two at-bats in exhibition games this year, he complained of back and hip pain and failed to play a game in the regular season. In May, Davis underwent a left hip hip operation and was out for the season.
The Baltimore club, which has spent a large sum of money and has not worked, must pay Davis by 2037 토토사이트
According to MLB Network’s John Hayman and MLB Tradrumus, Davis decided to receive $3.5 million a year from 2023 to 2032 and $1.4 million a year from 2033 to 2037.
