The San Diego Padres invested a lot to win this season. The Boston Red Sox acquired shortstop Xander Bogarts for 280 million dollars (approximately 364 billion won) in 11 years. The bullpen pitcher was brought in for 5 years and 46 million dollars (approximately 59.8 billion won). Seth Lugo, Michael Waka, Matt Carpenter and Nelson Cruz also wore San Diego uniforms.
Darvish Yu signed a 6-year, $108 million온라인바카라 (approximately 140.4 billion won) contract extension, and Manny Machado signed an 11-year, $350 million (approximately 455 billion won) contract extension.
The US’MLB.com’ said, “San Diego is expected to rank 4th in most points and 5th in least runs. In the San Diego infield, there are 4 starting resources that can play as shortstops. That could be the best combination in baseball.” San Diego hasn’t won the National League West championship since 2006, but it’s expected to win this season.”
By recruiting Bogatz, he started directing traffic in the infield. Kim Ha-seong, who was active as the starting shortstop last season and was included in the final three candidates for the Gold Glove in the Major League National League shortstop category, will move to second base. Jake Cronenworth goes to first base. Fernando Tatis Jr., who was suspended for taking a banned substance, will play as an outfielder.
“The San Diego Union Tribune” of the United States said on the 27th (Korean time), “San Diego already had two shortstops. But they moved Tatis to right field and Ha-seong Kim to second base.” It is because I believed in him and decided to sign a large contract.”
“I was a little taken aback, but San Diego obviously wants players who can win, who have the winning mentality, who have experience. That’s very valuable,” said Bogatz.
“You have to get to know everyone at first. It can be a little tough, but you come from a similar organization,” Bogatz said of life in San Diego. “The only difference is getting to know everyone. Every day you meet someone new. Every day. You can learn something new. It’s been fun so far.”
