‘Closer’ Oh Seung-hwan (40, Samsung Lions) has been named the Colorado Rockies’ best trade acquisition in franchise history.
MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, on Sunday featured “The Best Trade Deadline Acquisitions of the 21st Century by All 30 Major League Baseball Clubs 토토사이트.
MLB.com, which introduced the best trade acquisitions for each club, named Seung-hwan Oh of the Colorado Rockies.
Seung-hwan Oh was a top-notch closer for Samsung in the KBO and the Hanshin Tigers in Nippon Professional Baseball before joining the St. Louis Cardinals in 2016. He went 6-3 with 19 saves and a 1.92 ERA that year. The following year, in 2017, Oh went 6-3 with a 4.10 ERA and 20 saves, and in 2018, he was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays, where he went 4-3 with a 2.68 ERA before being dealt to Colorado at the trade deadline.
Seung-hwan Oh’s play continued after joining Colorado. In 25 appearances with the Rockies, Oh went 2-1 with a 2.53 ERA as the Rockies finished second in the National League West with a 91-72 record and advanced to the postseason, defeating the Chicago Cubs in the wild-card game to reach the Division Series. In the Division Series, the Rockies were swept by the Milwaukee Brewers in one game, and it remained their last postseason appearance.
When Colorado acquired Oh in a trade, the team’s general manager was Jeff Bridich. Bridich served as Colorado’s manager from October 2014 through April 2021. MLB.com noted that Bridich didn’t make any big signings when the Rockies were a postseason contender, and the Oh trade was one of the few success stories.
“When Colorado acquired Seung-hwan Oh, it wasn’t a high-profile signing,” MLB.com wrote, “but he went 2-0 with one save and a 2.53 ERA with an adjusted ERA+ of 189 in 25 appearances for the Rockies. He also pitched 1⅔ scoreless innings of relief in Game 10 and 11 of the 2018 National League Wild Card Game against the Chicago Cubs, which remains Colorado’s last postseason victory.” Seung-Hwan Oh has exceeded expectations in a Colorado uniform.
안전놀이터순위 After going 3-1 with a 9.33 ERA in 2019, Oh was released by Colorado in late July and returned to Samsung, where he is 2-2 with a 4.23 ERA in nine saves this year. He recently surpassed the 500-save mark for his Korean-American career, and is now closing in on the first 400-save milestone in KBO history with 379 saves.
