The American Major League Baseball (MLB) Baltimore Orioles will call up the team’s second-best prospect and the league’s 14th-best prospect to the big leagues.
Our Time Today (5th) According to MLB.com, Baltimore will call left-handed outfielder Colton Cowser (23) to the major leagues and will start playing the game against the New York Yankees starting tomorrow.
Cowser is a top prospect who joined Baltimore with the 5th overall pick in the 1st round of the 2021 draft. At the time, the down payment was 4.9 million dollars (6.4 billion won).
From the moment Cowser joined, he showed a performance worthy of a first rounder. Starting from the Rookie League, he stepped up and was promoted to Triple A last year, and this year, the Norfolk Tides (Triple A team) literally bombed the league, recording 10 homers, 40 RBIs, a batting average of 0.330, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.996 in 56 games. I did.
His MLB debut was a fait accompli to the extent that Baltimore general manager Mike Elias appeared on a recent broadcast and said, “The roster situation in the big leagues is a problem, but Cowser is ready to come to the big leagues.”토토사이트
Baltimore has been in a slump, losing six of their last seven games. In the American League (AL) wild card competition, they were running for first place with ease, but were chased by two games by the recent rising Yankees and Houston Astros.
With five games left before the All-Star break, a turnaround was urgently needed. The call-up of top prospect Cowser is interpreted as a measure with this situation in mind.
However, Baltimore’s 40-man roster is currently full. In order to secure the seat of Cowser, another person is expected to be DFA (designated assignment).
Attention is focusing on whether Kauser’s addition can give Baltimore’s batting line, which has recently cooled down, some breathing room.
