“I’m Going to Washington”: MLB CEO Gonggalpo signs a one-year contract of 6.5 billion won

Joey Gallo (31), the epitome of blackmail, has found a new team.

MLB.COM, the official website of Major League Baseball (MLB), said on the 24th (Korea time) that Gallo agreed to a one-year contract with Washington. The contract is said to include a basic 5 million dollars (6.5 billion won) plus an additional 1 million dollars (1.3 billion won) in grade incentives. Washington needed to reinforce its first baseman and outfielder left-handed hitter Dominic Smith in November last year. Washington manager Dave Martinez also said at the winter meeting that he wanted to recruit a left-handed outfielder.

Gallo meets the goal of Washington. Since his debut in the big league in 2015, Gallo has 198 homers in his career (nine years). In 2017 and 2018, he exceeded 40 homers for two consecutive years. He also keeps his guard. In 2020 and 2021, he received the Gold Glove Award in the American League’s outfield division. What remains regrettable is the accuracy of his batting. The ratio of walks (465) to strikeouts (1,190) is not good. In 2021, when he hit 38 homers, he became the MLB’s strikeout king (213).헤라카지노도메인

He also hit 21 home runs last year when he played for the Minnesota Twins, but his batting average was low at 0.177 (50 hits in 282 times at bat). He has been recording the batting average of 10,000 every year since the 2020 season. During this period, Gallo’s batting average remained at 0.181 (240 hits in 1,323). The combined on-base percentage (0.315) and slugging percentage (0.416) has an OPS of 0.731.

Washington has five outfielders in its 40-man roster. Among them, Lane Thomas (29), who hit 28 home runs last year, is a good resource to be touted as a key player. Watchers say he lacks experience to the extent that he has no players in his 30s or older. Having hired Gallo, who has experienced both games, the team is expected to see its power increase.
