The popularity of veteran right-handed pitcher Johnny Cueto (37) is still hot.
Ken Rosenthal of the American sports media The Athletic posted on his social media (SNS) on the 5th (Korean time), “The San Diego Padres and Miami Marlins are competing to sign free agent (free agent) right-handed pitcher Cueto. The Cincinnati Reds are also interested.” 토토사이트
A native of the Dominican Republic, Cueto is a 15-year veteran of the big leagues. In 2014, while playing for Cincinnati, he won 20 seasons and finished second in the National League Cy Young Award voting. After winning 18 wins in 2016, he suffered from residual injuries and suffered a period of stagnation for a while. However, last season with the Chicago White Sox, he showed off his strength with an ERA of 3.35 with an 8-10 loss. In six years, he played 150 innings and shook off the risk of injury. Cueto’s career record in the major leagues (MLB) is 143-107 with an ERA of 3.44.
What is interesting is Ha-sung Kim’s team, San Diego. San Diego’s offseason starters Sean Manea and Mike Clevinger left the team. However, the mound was strengthened by re-signing Nick Martinez and signing Seth Lugo. MLB.com predicted, “With the addition of Cueto in the presence of Yu Darvish, Joe Musgrove and Blake Snell, Martinez or Lugo are likely to start 2023 in the bullpen.”
