‘GG twice’ Perez, contract with SF, not Boston… ‘backup race’
On the 30th (Korean time), Chris Cotillo of Mathlive.com in the US reported on personal social media (SNS) that Perez had signed a major league contract with San Francisco. Contract details weren’t confirmed, but according to Cotillo, the Boston Red Sox were pretty aggressive in their offer, but Pérez’s decision was San Francisco. 메이저사이트
The Puerto Rican native Perez won the 2019 and 2020 American League Gold Glove for catcher (GG). In particular, in 2019, he shot 24 homers, the most in a single season, and showed his long-running ability. However, due to a combination of broken fingers, shoulder and hamstring injuries, he has only played in 65 games in the last two seasons. In particular, he only digested 21 games (0.233 batting average, 2 homers, 8 RBIs) last season when he left the Cleveland Guardians and moved to the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Perez’s career (9 years) in the big leagues is a batting average of 0.207, 55 homers and 192 RBIs in 511 games. MLB.com, the official homepage of the Major League Baseball (MLB), mentioned Joey Bart as San Francisco’s main catcher and predicted that ‘Perez will probably compete with Austin Winns for the backup position’.
