The ‘111 Hold-89 Save’ WS winning team joined hands with CHC, not NYY… up to 31.1 billion won per 1+1 year

Hector Neris, the “core” of the bullpen, who led the Houston Astros to the World Series (WS) stage for the second consecutive year, has moved to the Chicago Cubs.

Jeff Bankruptcy of the U.S. “ESPN” quoted a source on the 28th (Korea Standard Time) as saying, “The Chicago Cubs have agreed to a one-year, $9 million (about 12 billion won) contract with Hector Neris that includes options in 2025.”월카지노주소

Neris is guaranteed $9 million for the 2024 season, and if he plays in 60 games this year, his 2025 season option will be displayed. If the option is implemented, he can receive $9 million in the 2025 season, and according to multiple local media in the U.S., Neris’ contract is up to $23.25 million (about 31.1 billion won) for 1+1 year.

Neris is a “must-win” pitcher who was reborn as a full-fledged major leaguer in 2014 when he first entered the big league with the Philadelphia Phillies. Neris has been a professional bullpen agent since the beginning of his debut. He played only one game in his first season since his debut, but in 2015, he pitched in 32 games, leaving a 2-2 record with a 3.79 ERA, and the following year, he played 79 games, 4-4-28 record with two saves and a 2.58 ERA, starting to play an important role.

Neris, who previously played as a “set-up man,” was in charge of the back door of Philadelphia in the 2017 season and played the role properly. Neris harvested 26 saves in 2017 and showed a poor performance in the 2018 season, but he left an excellent performance of 3-6, 2-hold 28 saves with a 2.93 ERA in 68 games in 2019. Neris, who wore the Philadelphia uniform until the 2021 season, moved to Houston in the 2022 season through a free agent (FA) qualification.

Even after changing his uniform, he continued to show good performance. Neris went on to pitch in 70 games in the 2022 season and achieved a “team no-hitter” record of 6-4-25, three saves with an ERA of 3.72 and helped Houston lift the World Series trophy that year. He also entered the FA market again after a “career high” season last year with a 6-3-31-hold, two saves with an ERA of 1.71.

This winter, Neris drew attention from various teams, including Houston, a “friendly” team, the St. Louis Cardinals, the New York Mets, the Texas Rangers, and the New York Yankees, who were looking to reinforce bullpen pitchers. In particular, the Yankees seemed to be leading the way in Neris’ recruitment, but the final winner became the Cubs.

Although Neris had his best year last year, he did not have a relatively big contract. His average fastball speed dropped from 94.3 miles (151.8 kilometers) in nine seasons since his Major League debut to 93 miles (150 kilometers) last year. In addition, his walk rate has also shown a sharp increase, leading to a short contract with a one-year guarantee. According to USA Today, Neris reportedly originally wanted to sign a three-year contract.

Although he is not young and has unstable factors such as a lack of ball speed, the Cubs, who were aiming to recruit bullpen pitchers, provided safety measures through “option” and recruited Neris. Neris, who contributed to Houston’s advance to the World Series for the second consecutive year, is now starting anew in a Cubs uniform.
