Will the two-time All-Star and Silver Slugger-winning third baseman hit the trade market? Alex Bregman is expected to hit the market.
The U.S. MLB Network mentioned on the 28th (Korean time) that Bregman is likely to be sold for trade this off-season.
Bregman has played for only one team since being selected twice in the first round by Houston in the 2015 Major League Baseball Draft.
After debuting in the major leagues in the 2016 season, he was a slugger who recorded a batting average of 0.274, 165 home runs, 588 RBIs, and an on-base percentage of 0.373 and OPS of 0.861 over eight seasons. 메이저사이트
But the problem is that Bregman’s agent is Scott Boras. Accordingly, it was predicted that Houston could trade Bregman early.
In response to this, MLB Network mentioned that Houston would never meet Boras’ demands. Boras is the worst agent from the club’s perspective.
The problem is that the price for a ‘one-year rental’ player is too high. Bregman signed a six-year, $100 million contract with Houston ahead of the 2019 season.
The annual salary for the 2024 season will amount to $30.5 million. There is something to be gained after the qualifying offer, but the burden is too great to pay an annual salary of $30.5 million and use it for only one year.
Bregman’s strength is thorough body management. During the eight years he played in the major leagues, he appeared in more than 150 games five times. He played in 161 games last season as well.
With a slugging power of 30 home runs per season and more walks than strikeouts, a high on-base percentage can be expected. He also has no Gold Glove wins, but has good third base defense.
