The Major League Baseball (MLB) San Francisco Giants embraced Carlos Correa, the ‘biggest shortstop’. Now, eyes are focused on the destination of Carlos Rodon (30), the biggest left-handed player.
American sports media such as MLB.com reported on the 14th (Korean time) the news of the contract between San Francisco and Correa. The period is 13 years, the total amount is 350 million dollars (453.4 billion won). Trey Turner (11 years, $300 million), who previously signed with the Philadelphia Phillies, signed for a longer period and total amount than Xander Bogarts (11 years, $280 million), who chose the San Diego Padres.
With San Francisco signing a large contract, the possibility of a breakup with Rodon, who served as an internal free agent and an ace this season, is also growing. San Francisco signed a two-year, $25 million contract with left-handed starter Sean Manea two days ago, and on the morning of the 14th, Ross Stripling, who played with Ryu Hyun-jin for the LA Dodgers and Toronto Blue Jays, also signed a contract (two years, $25 million). did.
Rodon, who raised his stock price by recording 13 wins (5 losses) and an average ERA of 2.37 as a member of the Chicago White Sox in the 2021 season, signed a contract with San Francisco in March 2022 for a period of two years and a total of $44 million. He was a relatively young pitcher, but San Francisco made a safety net on a relatively short-term contract, as he only had one double-digit win season.
After the end of the 2022 season, Rodon also included an opt-out clause (a contract to terminate the contract and obtain FA status again). And after showing off his ability again this season with 14 wins (8 losses) and an average ERA of 2.88, he came back to the market.
Currently, the New York Yankees are looking for Rodon. Currently, it is known that specific contract conditions have been presented. On the morning of the same day when the news of Correa’s move to San Francisco came out, it was predicted that the Yankees would not be active in negotiations with Correa to recruit Rodon.
San Francisco lost to the Yankees in the 2022 season home run king (62) Aaron Judge acquisition. If the same player competes again and is taken away, the blow will inevitably be great. First of all, the starting lineup was reinforced with 4th and 5th starting pitchers (Manea and Stripling), and it seems that large free agents negotiated with Corea as a target.
It is known that Rodon wants a contract of 7 years and an annual average of 30 million dollars. The Mets, a team related to the same New York area, is heating up the Stove League with astronomical investments such as the recruitment of Justin Verlander. It is unlikely that the ‘Evil Empire’ Yankees will be pushed out of the financial competition. 토토사이트
Above all, the Yankees suffered for several years due to the problem of the postseason starting pitcher (depth). Since 2009, they have not won the World Series for 13 years. Currently, there is only one top-notch ace in the starting lineup, Garrett Cole. Frankie Montas, who was acquired through trade this season, and Nestor Cortes, who played a ‘surprising’ role, are still difficult to predict as pitchers who will win more than 15 wins.
First of all, Rodon is a pitcher in his prime. His record of 14 wins or more for two consecutive years and an earned run average of 2 points is highly regarded. Attention is focusing on what choice the Yankees, who are aiming for the trophy, will make.
