Texas tears to watch 224.6 billion second baseman release such player
After leaving the team, the released players continued their hot performance, and the special FA, which spent 175 million dollars (about 224.6 billion won) in the off-season, is sluggish. In this situation, Texas Rangers will have a stomachache.
Matt Carpenter started as the fifth batter and third baseman in the 2022 Major League Baseball Chicago Cubs game at the Bronx Yankee Stadium in New York on the 13th (Korea Standard Time). With three hits in four at-bats (two home runs) and seven RBIs and three runs scored, he played his part as the vanguard of the team’s 18-4 victory.
After last season, Carpenter left his former team, the St. Louis Cardinals, which he played for 11 years. He later signed a minor contract with the Texas Rangers to mark the end of his career in Texas, where he sweated to enter the Major League.
I waited for the Major League call, but it didn’t come true. He was notified of his release on the 20th of last month after hitting 0.275 (22 hits in 80 at-bats) with six home runs and 19 RBIs in the Texas-affiliated minor league Triple-A.
Carpenter, who became free, will wear the New York Yankees uniform with a gap in the third baseman due to Josh Donaldson’s injury. Although the sample is small, he is continuing his tremendous performance with a batting average of 0.333 (8 hits in 24 at-bats) and 6 home runs and 13 RBIs and OPS 1.592 in 10 games that lasted until the 13th.
Texas, which sees Carpenter’s performance, has no choice but to have a stomachache. He has recruited various players through aggressive off-season investments, but no results have been made yet. In particular, infielder Marcus Simian and Corey Seager received huge sums of money for seven years, 175 million dollars (about 224.6 billion won), and 325 million dollars (about 417.6 billion won) for 10 years, respectively, but the slump continues endlessly.
Carpenter, on the other hand, is doing well. “Carpenter became the Yankees’ first player to hit more than six home runs in the first 10 games,” said ESPN reporter Sarah Lang on her personal SNS on the 13th. He also recorded the second most RBIs (13 RBIs) in the first 10 games since 1920 when his RBI was officially recorded, he said 안전놀이터
Meanwhile, Simian has a batting average of 0.217 (51 hits in 235 at-bats) with six home runs and 24 RBIs in 58 games this season. Of the 158 players who filled the regular at-bats, the OPS is in the bottom 20 and the batting average is in the bottom 25
