The player who made Hanwha players carry cameras is still unemployed… Where is the old glory

Last February, former major league all-star players came to Bellbank Park in Mesa, Arizona, USA, where Hanwha’s spring camp was held, and gathered topics. Hanwha players who finished training in the morning watched their pitching, and some players were busy taking pictures with cameras.

Right-hander Jack Greinke, who is selected as a prospective Hall of Fame player, and left-hander Dallas Keuchel (35), a former All-Star, are the players that caught the attention of Hanwha players. I didn’t even tell them who they were, but there were quite a few players who looked at their faces and named them at once, and players who didn’t know had their eyes twinkled after hearing about the major league careers of these players.

Greinke had already signed a one-year contract with Kansas City. Kansas City’s spring training was held in Arizona, USA. He was warming up with Arizona before his official training began. Keuchel, on the other hand, was a little different. He didn’t even have a team at the time.

Keuchel, who made his major league debut in Houston in 2012, once made a name for himself as a left-hander representing the major leagues. He won the double-digit multiplier (12 wins) and Gold Glove for the first time in 2014, and in 2015, he recorded 20-8 and an average ERA of 2.48, winning three awards including American League Cy Young Award, All-Star, and Gold Glove. It is a time that remains as Keuchel’s most glorious memory.

The heyday continued for quite a long time, with 14 wins in 2017 and 12 wins in 2018. However, from 2021, the trials continued. In 2020, a shortened season due to Corona 19, the pitcher, who continued effective pitching with an average ERA of 1.99 in 11 games, soared to 5.28 in 2021.

2022 was the worst year in Keuchel’s career. He was released from the Chicago White Sox after a slump, and went through Arizona and Texas, but all were released. He tasted the humiliation of being released three times in one season alone. In the meantime, in 14 games in 2022, it left the worst record of 2 wins and 9 losses and an average ERA of 9.20, and there is no team looking for it until now when the season has opened. 메이저놀이터

The prevailing opinion is that the major league contract is over. He is a pitcher with 101 wins in the major leagues and is still in his mid-30s, but he is in a position to seek a comeback by getting a minor league contract. John Heyman of the ‘New York Post’ has reported that Philadelphia is interested in Keuchel in terms of strengthening the player base, but no concrete progress has been made yet.

In the end, the season is over, there are injuries, and the Keuchel market is expected to move only when there are teams that need preliminary selection resources. The future of Keuchel, who is still doing personal training, is noteworthy.
