Aroldis Chapman (36), a “Cubasan Missile” who succeeded in reviving, will prepare for his 15th major league season with $6.75 million more than last year.
USA Today and others reported on the 23rd (Korea Standard Time) that the Pittsburgh Pirates and Chapman agreed to a one-year-10.5 million-dollar contract. 라바카지노도메인
With this, Chapman received $3.75 million last year, which did not fit his reputation, but in just one season, he earned more than $10 million.
Chapman pitched 5,8 1/3 innings in 61 games for the Kansas City Royals and Texas Rangers last year, posting a 3.09 ERA. He struck out 103.
It is evaluated that he escaped from a big slump with the New York Yankees in 2022. However, he is not as good as he was in his prime.
Of course, one can expect a set-up man who will take charge of the eighth inning, not a super-high-end closer. That’s because there are balls that exceed 99 miles on average.
Pittsburgh also does not serve as a closing pitcher. This is because there is already David Bedner, who grew into a top-class closing pitcher last year.
Now, Pittsburgh has a solid relief pitcher named Bedner from Chapman in the eighth to ninth innings. Bedner is also a fastball finisher who throws four-seam fastballs at an average speed of 96.6 miles.
