‘Three Cy Young’ Scherzer leaves New York Mets to move to Texas

 Right-handed fastball pitcher Max Scherzer (39), who has won three Cy Young Awards, is expected to change his uniform from the New York Mets to the Texas Rangers.

Major U.S. media outlets such as MLB.com reported on the 30th (Korean time) that “the Texas club has agreed to the trade of Scherzer with the Mets.”

According to league sources, Scherzer must agree to the transfer for the trade to be finalized. When Scherzer signed a three-year, $130 million contract with the Mets in November 2021, he included a no-trade option.

If the trade is finalized, Texas will have a sure ace in its hands. Texas, which is leading the American League West this season, has never won a World Series. We see this season as a golden opportunity to unleash the championship.

Scherzer, a three-time Cy Young Award winner, is the player Texas needs most. Texas acquired Jacob deGrom as the team’s ace this season. However, Digcomb underwent right elbow surgery and ended his season early last month.메이저사이트

In a situation where there is no clear first starter, if Scherzer joins, Texas will gain a thousand troops. Scherzer, who has a career record of 210 wins, 106 losses, an average ERA of 3.15 and 3,314 strikeouts, is in good shape with 9 wins, 4 losses, and an ERA of 4.01 this season, which is about to turn 40.

Scherzer won the 2013 American League and the 2016 and 2017 National League Cy Young Awards. Along with Clayton Kershaw (LA Dodgers) and Justin Verlander (New York Mets), he is tied for first place (three times) with the most Cy Young Awards by an active pitcher.

Scherzer, who is also the highest paid player in the major leagues this year ($43 million), is criticized for his lack of pitch compared to his prime. However, he is expected to be a great help to Texas, which has no championship experience, as he has a lot of experience in big games and a strong desire to win.
