Mets Missed Yamamoto To Dodgers, 315 Home Run Giant From Dodgers ‘Eyes’

December 30, 2023 | by

The New York Mets, who missed Yoshinobu Yamamoto (25, Los Angeles Dodgers), are seeking to reinforce their batting lineup.

The New York Post John Hayman said on Monday (Korea time) that the Mets, who were behind in the race to recruit Yamamoto, are keeping an eye on J.D. Martinez, a slugger with 315 home runs in the Major League Baseball (MLB). He has 33 home runs as a member of the Dodgers this year. After the season, he was released as a free agent and is looking for a new team.

Competition is fierce. According to Hayman, not only the Mets but also the Los Angeles Angels and the Arizona Diamondbacks are eyeing a designated hitter (Martinez). Justin Turner (former Boston Red Sox, 187 home runs) is also a resource that matches the three teams, but it is not known which team wants Turner.

The Mets have worked so hard that Steve Cohen, the owner of the team, has a meal with Yamamoto. However, the team that has Yamamoto is the Dodgers. 월카지노 The Dodgers signed a 12-year, big deal worth a total of 325 million U.S. dollars. Yamamoto’s total contract is equivalent to the highest ransom (in terms of total value) for a nine-year, nine-year contract worth more than Garrett Cole of the New York Yankees, worth a total of 224 million dollars, worth more than 1 million dollars.

Hayman said it is uncertain whether the Mets will recruit other FA starting pitchers such as Jordan Montgomery and Blake Snell. Instead, they are contacting pitchers such as Lucas Giolito (formerly Cleveland Guardians) and Shota Imana (DeNA BayStars, Yokohama), who can recruit relatively low-priced pitchers. Imana is a left-handed pitcher from the Japanese professional baseball (NPB), which is knocking on the door of the big league with the same posting system (closed competitive bidding) as Yamamoto.

According to the New York Post-Mark Sanchez, the Mets are also preparing to reinforce a veteran third baseman. The candidate list is Gio Urshela (32) from the New York Yankees. Urshela is a hot corner resource with 63 home runs in the MLB. He played for the Yankees for three years from 2019. He has close relations with Carlos Mendoza and Francisco Lindor, his main shortstop, and was linked with the Mets.
