Corey Seager has never been eliminated from the postseason since his major league debut. Until he joined the Texas Rangers last year.
The Los Angeles Dodgers went to the postseason 메이저놀이터 every year except for 2018, when the season was out due to Tommy John surgery, and in 2020, when the Dodgers won the World Series, they were strong even in the fall. From the Championship Series to the World Series, he won the series MVP in a row.
But Seager’s postseason career came to an end in 2021. He left the Dodgers and signed a 10-year, $325 million contract with Texas to take on a new challenge.
Texas, not content with signing Seager, hired Marcus Simeon, the second baseman with the most homers, for seven years and $175 million. 500 million dollars were poured into the Keystone Combi reinforcement alone. However, Texas’ power, which only went 60-102 in 2021, did not improve at once. Last year’s record was 68-94, still close to 100 losses.
Seager had a batting average of 0.245, 33 home runs, 83 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.772 in 151 games. He lived up to Texas expectations, breaking 150 games for the first time since 2016, when he won Rookie of the Year, but his batting performance was less than before.
Investment in Texas continued this year as well. This time, we focused on recruiting starting pitchers. Jacob deGrom, Nathan Eboldi and Andrew Heaney wore Texas uniforms. Will Ciger be able to smile even in the fall?
MLB.com said on the 30th (Korean time) that Seager said, “I didn’t expect to recruit this much. General manager Chris Young said he wanted a player who could properly show the image of an ace to young pitchers. Then he brought in three people. All of us He is the player that was needed, and he is a player who can pass on experience. Our possibilities are endless,” he said, looking forward to the upcoming season.
“There’s no excuse for not winning,” Seager said. “Is there a law saying we shouldn’t have the confidence that we can win?” He seems very satisfied with the team’s reinforcement of players.
