One of the characteristics of former KBO league coach Kim Seong-geun’s player composition was to collect and reuse players who had been discarded from other teams.
This is because baseball is a long-term race that can be recycled, so if players’ injuries or slumps overlap, discarded players also play a role. Others are very rare. Especially when the environment changes, there are often cases where pitchers expand new territory. Even if the team changes, the hitter is often the rice for the namul.
The San Diego Padres beat the Seattle Mariners 10-3 on the 8th (Korean time) and escaped from a lethargic attack that scored one point the previous day. The award winner is catcher Gary Sanchez. At the end of the 3rd inning with a 1-0 lead, they opened the door to victory with a 3-run homer (No. 4). San Diego scored 17 hits. Juan Soto went 5-for-5 with 4 RBI.
Sanchez, 30, from the Dominican Republic, made his major league debut on October 4, 2015 in a New York Yankees uniform. In 2016, he hit 20 home runs in 53 games in his first year in the MLB and stitched the Yankees home. He also recorded 30 or more home runs twice. He is a typical offensive catcher.
He played for the Minnesota Twins last year. Because the New York Yankees traded it before the season. He appeared in 128 games, where he had a batting average of .205, 16 home runs, 61 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.659. No team was looking for him in the double-digit home run or offseason free agent.
On April 2, the SF Giants of the National League West signed a minor league contract. However, on May 3, the SF Triple-A Sacramento River Cats released him. He had a batting average of 0.164 in 16 games. On May 10, the New York Mets signed him to a minor league contract. On the 20th, he was promoted to the big leagues. However, the Mets also released it on May 26, after 6 days. Sanchez, released by the Mets, was acquired by San Diego the next day.
San Diego operated the homeroom with two catchers, starter Austin Nola and rookie Brett Sullivan. When Sanchez was recruited, Sullivan went down to the minor leagues. Sanchez made his debut on May 31 against the Miami Marlins and gave up one hit. Manager Bob Melvin used the number 7. On the second day, he reported a home run. In the last game against Miami, he posted a cannon and 3 RBIs in 2 consecutive games with a home run and multi-hit.
Sanchez had 4 homers and 10 RBIs in 9 games in a San Diego uniform. In the game against Seattle on the 8th, he served as cleanup hitter No. 4. Sanchez’s home run led the team to 3 wins and 1 loss. For San Diego, which has a lot of ups and downs throughout the season, Sanchez was the main driver of June’s victory.
It is not known how long this pace will continue. However, the team that is having a lot of fun by catching Sanchez, who was abandoned by the Giants and Mets in one month, is definitely San Diego.
