‘Leave the captain’s seat!’ Pittsburgh Pittsburgh, Ohtani and Anduha’s nomination for rookie of the year
The Pittsburgh Pirates have selected Andrew Anduha as DFA.
Pittsburgh announced on the 21st (Korean time) that it had given infield and outfielder Anduha free agency for the position of ‘Pirate Captain’ Andrew McCutchen.
Anduha had a batting average of 0.297, 27 메이저사이트 home runs and 92 RBIs in 149 games for the New York Yankees in 2018, competing fiercely with Shohei Otani (LA Angels) for the Rookie of the Year title. As a result, Ohtani won the Rookie of the Year award.
Later, when he couldn’t grow due to a shoulder injury, the Yankees traded him to Pittsburgh at the end of last season.
He posted a mediocre .250 batting average in 40 plate appearances for Pittsburgh.
Pittsburgh, however, looked to his potential and signed a 2023 salary contract for $1.525 million.
However, Pittsburgh, which acquired McCutchen, DFA Anduha for his 40-man roster.
With the addition of Choi Ji-man and Carlos Santana, Andoha gave up the first baseman spot to them, and with McCutchen’s recruitment, he can no longer be used as an outfielder.
If there is no team claiming Anduha within the next week, Pittsburgh is
known to send him to Triple-A.
