‘World Series runner-up’ Arizona recruits 186 home runs Pederson ‘close’

The Arizona Diamondbacks, who finished second in the U.S. Major League Baseball (MLB) World Series last year, are expected to embrace outfielder Jak Pederson.

“Arizona and Pederson are very close to signing a contract,” MLB Trade Rumors said on the 26th (Korea time). Details on the terms of the contract are not yet known.

After joining the big league with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2014, Pederson played for the Chicago Cubs, Atlanta Braves, and San Francisco Giants. He recorded a batting average of 0.237 with 186 homers and 485 RBIs in 1,140 games. He was named the All-Star twice, and in 2019, he hit 36 homers to set the most homers in a single season.월카지노주소

“Arizona general manager Mike Hazen has expressed his willingness to recruit a designated hitter this winter. Pederson meets the requirements,” the media said.

Arizona made a surprise splash when it advanced to the World Series last year. However, it failed to lift the trophy in the final stage, being outplayed by the Texas Rangers.

Leaving the disappointment behind, Arizona is actively strengthening its power in preparation for the 2024 season. The team brought in third baseman Eugenio Suárez through trade and hired Eduardo Rodriguez to strengthen its starting rotation. MLB Trade Rumors predicted that if the contract with Pederson is signed, it will add another threat to Arizona’s lineup.
