The American Professional Baseball (MLB) New York Mets are building the best starting pitching team by showing wide moves in this Stove League.
According to MLB.com on the 10th (Korean time), the Mets signed a contract with left-handed pitcher Jose Quintana (33) for two years and $26 million (approximately 33.9 billion won).
Quintana, who was selected as an American League All-Star in 2016 and ran his heyday, suffered bad luck and poor grades from the year before last, but is evaluated as having succeeded in rebounding in the 2022 season.
Quintana threw 165⅔innings in 32 games this year, posting an average ERA of 2.93 with 6 wins and 7 losses. Over his 11 years, his career record is 89-87 with a 3.75 earned run average.
Mets general manager Billy Eppler said, “Quintana is one of the most reliable starting pitchers,” and explained the background 안전놀이터 of the contract, saying, “We can strengthen the starting rotation by recruiting an experienced left-handed pitcher.”
The Mets already have a clear ‘one-two punch’ in Max Scherzer (38) and Justin Verlander (39), who have won three Cy Young Awards. Scherzer signed a free agent contract with the Mets last year and Verlander this year.
MLB.com analyzed, “Sherzer, Verlander, and Quintana are the players who were selected for the first game of the postseason in their respective original teams this year,” and “the reason why the Mets have confidence despite their age.”
The insatiable Mets are also seeking to recruit Senga Godai (29), who has a career record of 87 wins, 44 losses, an ERA of 2.59 and 1,252 strikeouts in Japanese professional baseball.
Meanwhile, right-hander Trevor Williams (30), who played for the Mets this year, left the team after agreeing to a two-year, $13 million contract with the Washington Nationals.
