Should Bae Ji-hwan give up on King Doru? 162.1 billion won monster Kang Jung-ho’s fellow outfielder ‘Runaway’
Should Bae Ji-hwan (Pittsburgh Pirates) give up on stealing king?
the flow is like that Starling Marte (35, New York Mets) succeeded in stealing his 15th base of the season in a home game against the Philadelphia Phillies on the 2nd (hereinafter Korean time). He tied for second in the National League in stolen bases with Corbin Carroll (23, Arizona Diamondbacks). It is a sharp rise of five steals in the last 11 games.메이저놀이터
Marte is a 35-year-old veteran. He debuted with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2012 and worked his way through the Arizona Diamondbacks, Miami Marlins and Oakland Athletics before signing a four-year, $78 million contract with the Mets ahead of the 2022 season.
In 52 games this season, 44 hits in 181 at-bats, a batting average of 0.243, 2 homers, 16 RBIs, 21 runs scored, 16 stolen bases, an OPS of 0.621. His batting record isn’t very good, but his stealing ability is still there. He has an on-base percentage of .312, which is below his career average of .344, but once he gets out, he runs, he lives.
He is a familiar figure to major league fans in Korea as he ate rice with Kang Jeong-ho during his Pittsburgh days. This season’s stolen base race is a competition for young players. The key is whether Marte, who has passed his prime at the age of 35, can manage his stamina well. 330 career steals. He is not a player to be ignored.
Bae Ji-hwan, who had no games on the day and had 15 stolen bases, fell one notch to 4th in the National League in stolen bases alone. At the same time, he is pursued by Nico Horner (Chicago Cubs, 14 steals), Tyro Estrada (San Francisco Giants, 13 steals), and Christian Yelich (Milwaukee Blueers, 12 steals). Jazz Chisom Jr. (Miami Marlins), who is currently closed due to injury, is still tied for 5th.
The National League stealing king race is the solo system of monstrous outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (Atlanta Braves, 23 stolen bases), who boasts a contract worth 124 million dollars (approximately 162.1 billion won). Acuna showed steady pace with 13 steals in April and 10 steals in May. She leads Carol and Marte in a tie for second place by eight points. He chased Esteuri Ruiz (Oakland Athletics, 28 stolen bases), who ranked first in the major leagues, by five runs.
Acuna is at the top of the National League in all batting categories except for home runs and RBIs this season. He is evaluated as leading the way in the National League MVP race. However, on this day, MLB.com reported an important prediction for June and said that Acuna would steal 20 bases in June alone. He’s talking about breaking 40 steals before the All-Star break.
It sounds like nonsense, but there are many evaluations that Akuna’s performance this season is so amazing that it is ridiculous. This is an amazing pace even considering that the major leagues are equipped with favorable conditions for running baseball, such as the introduction of pitch clocks, expansion of base size, and restrictions on ball control and defensive shifts in the major leagues this year. MLB.com has already predicted that Acuna is on pace with 35 homers and 87 stolen bases this year, and that 30-60 is possible for the first time in the major leagues.
