Choo Shin-soo, who signed 42.8 billion won, how about a cheap veteran Minnesota now? American media
Will Choo Shin-soo (39) be able to play in the big leagues this season?
Fox Sports mentioned Choo Shin-soo as a “good FA” in an article looking for the Minnesota Twins’ 2021 left fielder and designated hitter on the 21st (Korea time) 토토사이트
Until last season, Minnesota’s starting left fielder was Eddie Rosario. In 2020, when the 60-game shortened season took place, Rosario played 51 games. However, Rosario ended his five-year relationship with Minnesota this winter. He also did not renew his contract with designated hitter Nelson Cruz.
Choo Shin-soo is an FA after his seven-year, $130 million contract with Texas ended at the end of the 2020 season. Although his 16-year-old career batting average of .275 and OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage) of 0.824, the age of 39 this year is a stumbling block. It is also regrettable that he played only 33 games due to injury last season.
The media emphasized, “Choo Shin-soo had a hard time in 2020, but if Minnesota wants to reinforce its batting lineup, it is a cheap player to recruit,” adding, “Only two years ago, he was selected as an All-Star with 21 home runs and OPS 0.826 in 2018.” Choo Shin-soo made a huge donation to minor leaguers suffering from Corona 19 last year and was nominated for the Roberto Clemente Award.
Jake Cabe, considered the No. 1 candidate for Minnesota’s left fielder, posted a batting average of .221 and OPS 0.674 last year, inferior to Choo Shin-soo. Gilberto Celestino and Alex Kirilov are prepared newcomers, but they have no experience in the big league.
In addition to Choo Shin-soo, the media also mentioned Ryan Brown, Adam Duval, and Kike Hernandez as possible FA.
