Will Ha-sung Kim’s team, the San Diego Padres, recruit slugger Nelson Cruz (43)?
John Heyman of the New York Post, USA, said on his social media (SNS) on the 11th (Korean time) that ‘San Diego 먹튀검증 is one of the teams interested in Cruz’ and that ‘AJ Preller and Cruz were together at the Texas Rangers’. relationship was introduced.
Cruz, a native of the Dominican Republic, appeared in 124 games for the Washington Nationals last season, posting a batting average of 0.234 (105 hits in 448 at-bats), 10 homers, and 64 RBIs. Compared to his prime, his destructive power at bat has decreased, but he has shown off his strength with double-digit home runs. Cruz’s overall performance in the big leagues (18 years) was a batting average of 0.274 (7358 at-bats, 2018 hits), 459 homers and 1302 RBIs. The combined OPS of on-base percentage (0.344) and slugging percentage (0.515) reaches 0.859.
He boasts a brilliant individual career, including seven All-Star selections and four Silver Slugger Awards. Since 2019, he has only played as a designated hitter, so his defensive utilization is poor and his main power is not fast. However, he is a resource that can be counted on for a shot. San Diego lost quite a few ‘right-handed’ resources this winter, including Will Myers (Cincinnati Reds), Brandon Drury (LA Angels), and Josh Bell (Cleveland Guardians). In a 먹튀검증 situation where the need to recruit a right-handed hitter is emphasized, Cruz came to mind as an alternative.
