FA big gun that Dodgers gave up Turner and recruited FA, has already revived 20 home runs…It’s “Hulp Price” now

There was a reason why the LA Dodgers gave up and chose infielder Justin Turner (39, Boston Red Sox), who had been with them for nine years. Veteran designated hitter J.D. Martinez (36) announced his revival by stepping on the 20-home run mark in the Dodgers.

Martinez led the Dodgers to a 6-4 come-from-behind victory by hitting a three-run home run in the fifth inning, trailing 2-4 against the Pittsburgh Pirates on the 6th (Korea Standard Time). Pittsburgh right-hander Roanji Contreras’ third slider was pushed over the left-center fence.

With this one shot, Martinez reached the 20-home run mark of the season. It is the first time in two years since the 28 home runs in 2021. Last year, he finished with 16 home runs in 139 games in Boston, but this year he regained his long hit with 20 home runs in 70 games. His slugging percentage was also last year.This year from 448.It rose significantly to 553.

Martinez, a right-handed slugger with a career of 302 home runs, made his debut with the Houston Astros in 2011, went through the Detroit 토토사이트 Tigers and Arizona Diamondbacks, and played for Boston for five years from 2018. After hitting a personal record of 45 home runs in 2017, he wore a Boston uniform with a large FA contract of five years and $110 million.

In the first year of his contract in 2018, he had a career-high season with a batting average of .333 with 130 home runs and 130 RBIs, leading Boston to the World Series title. He continued his momentum with 36 home runs in 2019, but has been on a downward trend since 2020. Last year, his batting average of .274 with 16 home runs and 62 RBIs in 139 games fell noticeably to OPS.790.

Boston did not offer Martinez, who became a free agent, to renew his contract. “Boston hasn’t told me about the contract all season,” Martinez said on the podcast “Bradfor Show” in March. There was no such thing as a conversation,” he said, expressing his disappointment.

The Dodgers approached Martinez and signed a contract at a lower price than expected with $10 million a year. Martinez said, “If I had held out a little longer, I could have gotten more money, but I wanted a team that could still play baseball in October. “I wanted a team that won all year long,” he said, explaining why he signed a contract with the Dodgers. The Dodgers are the favorite to win forever, and Martinez immediately stamped on a lower-than-expected ransom without measuring back and forth.

Half of the season has passed, Martinez is batting .251 with 20 home runs and 59 RBIs in 70 games. At the end of April, he missed 15 games due to back pain, but surpassed 20 home runs before the end of the first half. Arithmetic 38 home run pace. His slugging percentage (.553) ranks fourth overall in the National League, ranking first in the Dodgers team.

The Dodgers gave up renewing their contract with Justin Turner, a “mental landlord” who has been with them for nine years since 2014 to recruit Martinez, a designated hitter resource. Turner signed a two-year, $21.7 million free agent with Boston. He changed his uniform at the same time as if he had been traded to Martinez.

Turner is also playing as if he has forgotten his age with a batting average of .282, 13 home runs and 49 RBIs in 83 games in Boston, but Martinez has a slight advantage in batting productivity. In terms of the terms of the FA contract, the Dodgers’ remaining business was to catch Martinez rather than Turner.
