San Diego, ‘drug home run king’ and $1 million a year… Kim Ha-seong and Hansotbap

Ha-sung Kim’s San Diego Padres embraced Nelson Cruz.

Dominican Republic journalist Hector Gomez reported on the 12th (Korean time) that “San Diego has agreed to a one-year contract with Cruz.” Local media said the size of the contract was $1 million. It is much less than the ransom he received in the past, but it seems that he took it to build a winning career.

Entering his 19th season, Cruz recorded a career batting average of 0.274, 459 homers, 1,302 RBIs and an OPS of 0.859 in 2,006 games. He is a 7-time All-Star and 4-time Silver Slugger.

However, it was known that there was an eye problem last year, and it was sluggish with a batting average of 0.234 and 10 home runs OPS of 0.651. However, Cruise underwent surgery and is said to be fine now.

Cruz is a resource that can only be digested by a designated hitter, and is expected to mainly serve as a designated hitter in San Diego. Matt Carpenter, who was brought in this offseason, will serve as a utility/pinch hitter. San Diego recruited him and made a big addition to the lineup.

Meanwhile, Cruz was appointed as the general manager of the Dominican Republic at the World Baseball Classic to be held in March. He is also expected to play an active role here as a player. 먹튀검증
