The Texas Rangers added an option in left field.
Local media such as the ‘New York Post’ reported on the 18th (Korean time) that the Rangers had agreed to a one-year contract with Robbie Grossman (34). The Rangers club also made an official announcement soon after.
The condition of the 토토사이트 contract is an annual salary of 2 million dollars (2.6 billion won), plus an incentive of 3 million dollars.
Grossman, a switch hitter, played in 1011 games in 10 seasons in the major leagues, recording a batting average of 0.245, an on-base percentage of 0.346, and a slugging percentage of 0.377.
Last season, he played 129 games for both the Detroit Tigers and Atlanta Braves, batting average of 0.209, on-base percentage of 0.310, slugging average of 0.311, 7 homers and 45 RBIs.
He hit 23 home runs in the 2021 season and recorded a career high, but after one year it fell back to the previous year’s level. You
can enter both at-bats, but last season, when you faced a right-handed opponent with a batting average of 0.320, an on-base percentage of 0.436, and a slugging percentage of 0.443 (0.163/0.253/0.256) The score was much better than that. His career performance is also better than right-handers (0.232 / 0.335 / 0.363) with a batting average of 0.279, on-base percentage of 0.377, and slugging percentage of 0.413 when facing lefties.
He can play all three positions in the outfield, but has played 565 games, the most as a left fielder.
The ‘Dallas Morning News’ introduced that Texas was the lowest in the major leagues with an OPS of 0.577 for left field last season, and that left field was a position that Texas needed reinforcement.
This season, too, there is no set starter for the left fielder. Director Chris Young also mentioned the possibility of platooning. Brad Miller, Josh Smith, Travis Yankowski, Joe McCarthy, Yoshitomo Tsutsugo, and Bubba Thompson, Ezekiel Duran, Clint Frazier, and Mark Mathias are being discussed as left-handed hitters. Grossman is the most experienced of the right-handed options.
Meanwhile, the Rangers placed left-hander Brett Martin on the 60-day disabled list after shoulder surgery in January to make room for him on the 40-man roster.
