‘Brother in law’ is back.
The San Diego Padres announced on the 9th (Korean time) that they would sign a major league contract with Jurickson Profar, who was playing for Triple-A El Paso, ahead of the away game against the Houston Astros.
Profar, who signed a minor league contract with the Padres on September 1, appeared in 4 games in El Paso, recording 5 hits in 14 at-bats, 2 home runs, and 8 RBIs, and was given another opportunity in the big league.

Profar played in 345 games for the Padres over the past three years, recording a batting average of 0.244, an on-base percentage of 0.333, and a slugging percentage of 0.375. In the 2022 season, he established himself as the starting left fielder, and the team advanced to the championship series.
Ha-seong Kim was his closest colleague. He was more than a colleague. Propa called Kim Ha-seong “younger brother” and treated him like his sworn brother.
However, the professional world is cold. Pro Farr bid farewell to the 2022 season by executing his opt-out based on his success.안전놀이터
As a result, this turned out to be a bad choice. He belatedly agreed to a one-year, $7.75 million contract with the Colorado Rockies, but was released after performing below expectations with a batting average of 0.236, an on-base percentage of 0.316, a slugging percentage of 0.364, 8 home runs, and 39 RBIs in 111 games.
Propa, who returned to the free agent market, was looking for another opportunity with a familiar team.
First of all, for today’s game, you will wait on the bench. On this day, San Diego had Ha-seong Kim (third baseman), Fernando Tatis Jr. (right fielder), Juan Soto (left fielder), Manny Machado (designated hitter), Xander Bogaerts (shortstop), Luis Campusano (catcher), Matt Carpenter (first baseman), Matthew Batten (second baseman), and Trent. Grisham (center fielder)’s lineup was announced.
Meanwhile, San Diego called up infielder Egui Rosario from El Paso, placed catcher Gary Sanchez, who suffered a fractured wrist, on the injured list, and moved right-hander Alec Jacob to the 60-day injured list.
