“He’ll make hitting frustrating for opposing pitchers”
On the 18th (KST), Canada’s ‘TSN’ published an article titled ‘The hitters who are getting the most attention from the Toronto Blue Jays front office this winter’, claiming the signing of Lee Jung-hoo.
Toronto was in a tight race with the Texas Rangers and Seattle Mariners for the American League wild-card spot until the end of the regular season this year, with the Jays clinching a postseason berth heading into the final game of the season. But this fall was too short. Toronto was swept in a wild-card series by the Minnesota Twins, ending their fall schedule after just two games.
At the end of the 2023 season, the Jays have a total of six players hitting the free agent market. On the pitching side, “Korean Monster” Hyun-jin Ryu and Jordan Hicks, infielders Whit Merrifield, Matt Chapman, and Brandon Belt, and outfielder Kevin Kiermaier are all on the market to be evaluated by their respective clubs. Toronto is not in a hurry on the mound, as they have a starting rotation of Kevin Gausman-Jose Berrios-Chris Bassett-Yusei Kikuchi, but reinforcements in the infield and outfield are essential. 토토사이트
According to multiple local media outlets, Toronto general manager Ross Atkins is looking to acquire players in at least four positions at the Stovrig. According to TSN, “Toronto was the highest-scoring team in the majors in 2021 and 2022. This year, however, they ranked 15th with 4.6 runs per game, just below the league average.” “After hitting 262 home runs in 2021 and 200 in 2022, their production has dropped significantly to 188 home runs this year,” TSN noted.
With needs at second base, third base, left field, and a designated hitter, Toronto will be busy this winter. In addition to adding power through free agency, trades are also likely to be active. In the midst of all this, Canadian outlet TSN made the case that Toronto should sign Lee Jung-hoo in free agency.
