Otani teammate withdraws from participating in remaining season, “My family is hurting”

Nowadays, family comes before work. That’s true for Max Stassi (32), catcher for Shohei Ohtani’s team, the LA Angels.

The Angels team announced through the club’s public relations team on the 4th (Korean time) that Stasi had given up playing for the remainder of the season and was placed on the restricted list.

They stated that Stasi’s condition had improved enough to allow him to play in major league games again, but that “serious health concerns” in his family had forced him to withdraw from playing for the remainder of the season.

Stassi left the team in the last week of spring training last March, citing family health issues.

Afterwards, he returned to the team and began preparations for the season at a minor league camp, but was placed on the injured list due to a hip injury.온라인바카라

Although the player’s own condition improved, his family’s health issues remained unresolved and he ultimately withdrew from the remainder of the season.

The Angels stated, “Out of respect for Max and his family, our club will not be making any further comment,” and expressed its wish for the player’s family to recover.

Stassi played in 403 games for the Houston Astros and Angels over 10 seasons in the major leagues, recording a batting average of 0.212, an on-base percentage of 0.295, and a slugging percentage of 0.361.

Meanwhile, ‘The Athletic’ predicted that the Angels will be able to avoid paying wealth tax for the 2023 season through this measure. This is because there is no need to pay salaries to players on the restricted list.

The Angels, who were far from competing for the postseason, had previously eliminated a large number of players through waiver claims.
