The Miami Marlins acquired Luis Araez, the ‘American League batting king’, through a trade that day. As a result, Jazz Chisom Jr., who was originally in charge of second baseman, is heading to center fielder.
Miami acquired Araez through a trade with the Minnesota Twins on the 21st (Korean time). The trade gave away right-hander Pablo Lopez, infielder Jose Salas, and outfielder Byron Churio.”
Araez played a lot of innings last year as first baseman, but he is also a resource to see second baseman and third baseman. There are more career innings for second baseman. His defense is also in good shape, and he has maintained DRS Plus except for his first year.
In response, Kim Ng, general manager of Miami, said, “Araez will be Miami’s main second baseman. Instead, Chizom Jr. is heading to center field.”
Chijom Jr. first stepped on the big league stage in the 2020 season, and showed good appearance until last year. He is a hitter who can achieve 20-20, and last year also recorded a batting average of 0.254, 14 homers, 42 RBIs, and 12 stolen bases with an OPS of 0.860. He was also selected as an All-Star for the first time in his career, but his injury got in the way.
He has not been able to play since June due to a back injury, and the season is out. At that time, he also could not participate in the All-Star Game due to injury, and Jake Cronenworth (San Diego Padres) played instead.
This season is going to start off healthy, 바카라사이트 and I’m going to take on a new challenge. Chisom Jr. has a record of appearances at second base and shortstop, but has never played a single game in center field.
However, Chisom Jr. said, “Center field is very interesting. It’s not burdensome at all, and it’s fun. Because I can win a Gold Glove anywhere,” he said with confidence.
General manager Kim Ng also said, “He is a very good player and dynamic. He has excellent defensive range and speed. Rather, he is a player who can show more in center field. He has no problems with injuries,” he explained.
Miami seems to have finished controlling traffic to some extent by sending Chizom Jr. to center field. Newly recruited Gene Segura will take over at third base and Joy Wendle at shortstop.
