Veteran outfielder AJ Pollack (35), who recorded 140 arches in his career in the Major League Baseball (MLB), has made a new nest with the Seattle Mariners.
Global sports media ESPN announced on the 9th (Korean time) that “Pollack, a free agent (FA), has signed a one-year, $7 million contract with Seattle.”
Pollack, who made his big league debut with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2012, is an outfielder who has since played an active role in the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago White Sox. From 2017 to last season, he recorded double-digit home runs for 스포츠토토 six consecutive years, showing off his slugging power, and was selected as a National League (NL) All-Star in the 2015 season while playing in Arizona.
With a batting average of 0.276 and 140 homers and 470 RBIs in his big league career, Pollock showed a strong side especially to left-handed pitchers. In the 2022 season, while wearing a White Sox uniform, he batted .286 and hit 11 homers against left-handed pitchers.
Seattle has thus strengthened his power by embracing Pollock, an outfielder with a brilliant career. ESPN said, “Seattle has strengthened its batting line by recruiting outfielder Teoscar Hernandez and infielder Colton Wong, followed by Pollack.”
