Sanchez returns to the big leagues.
MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, announced that the New York Mets would call up Gary Sanchez on May 19 (Korean time).
According to MLB.com, the Mets will call Sanchez to the major leagues ahead of the first game of a three-game home game against the Cleveland Guardians on the 20th.
Sanchez, a star and starting catcher for the New York Yankees, signed a minor league contract with the Mets on the 10th. Sanchez, who joined the Triple-A team and wielded .308/.514/.500, 1 home run, and 5 RBIs in 8 games, properly ‘appealed’ to the Mets, who were worried about catchers.
Born in 1992 and debuting with the Yankees in 2015, Sanchez has already built a brilliant career. He played for the Yankees for about six years and was the Minnesota Twins’ starting catcher last season. His total performance in 8 seasons in the big leagues was 666 games, .225/.311/.467, 154 home runs and 401 RBIs. He has been selected as an All-Star twice in his career, and has the experience of being ranked 2nd in Rookie of the Year and 22nd in MVP. He is a player with excellent offensive power who made 30 home run seasons twice and won the Silver Slugger once.
However, after the end of last season, he was turned away from the free agency market, and this season, he signed a minor league contract with the San Francisco Giants after the opening, but left the team by opting out without reaching the big leagues. Sanchez, who tried again with the Mets, succeeded in joining the big leagues this time. 카지노사이트
The Mets, which ranked 26th overall with a catcher position OPS of 0.577 this season, needed a player to fill the sluggish home offense. Sanchez, who had a stellar career but was sidelined this year, joined the Mets on a low-cost contract with a $1.5 million salary if he makes the big league roster. A small contract that is not burdensome even for the Mets, who have already spent astronomical amounts of money. If he plays a big role after joining the big leagues, Sanchez can overturn the market’s evaluation for this winter, and it will be a win-win for the Mets to get ‘value for money’.
Meanwhile, Sanchez is also a player who gave pain to Ryu Hyun-jin (TOR). Sanchez showed the aspect of ‘Ryu Hyun-jin Killer’ by hitting .357/.400/1.071 with 3 homers and 4 RBIs against Ryu Hyun-jin during his Yankees days. If Sanchez settles down with the Mets, it’s good for Ryu Hyun-jin, who is preparing to return this summer. Toronto and the Mets only played a three-game series in early June, and after that, they will not face each other this year until both teams make it to the World Series.
