Will Shohei Ohtani (29), who has won the unanimous unanimous MVP, second MVP and fourth place in the Cy Young Award, challenge the 40 home run-40 stolen base club?
On the 31st (Korean time), MLB.com, the official homepage of the Major League Baseball, introduced players capable of challenging 40 home runs and 40 stolen bases, which have only come out four times in history.
Ohtani included here. Although it was not included in the main candidates, the mention itself shows Ohtani’s greatness.
Ohtani hit 46 home runs in the 2021 season. 34 home runs last year. Therefore, it can be seen that he has enough power to hit 40 home runs in one season. 먹튀검증
Feet are fast too. Ohtani’s most stolen bases in a season is 26 in 2021, but he has enough speed to reach 40 in a season.
The problem is Ohtani’s stamina. His greatest weakness is that he has no reason to challenge for 40 stolen bases by overdoing it. This is because Ohtani has to act as a starting pitcher as well.
As a result, Ohtani’s chances of achieving 40 home runs and 40 stolen bases are low. But as mentioned earlier, being included on this list with players who only specialize in hitting is surprising.
At the head of this list is Ronald Acuna Jr. Acuña Junior reached the 40 home run-40 steal mark in 2019 with 41 home runs and 37 steals.
Next, Julio Rodriguez and Michael Harris II, who won the Rookie of the Year titles in both leagues last year, were mentioned. The two players recorded 28 home runs and 25 stolen bases and 19 home runs and 20 stolen bases, respectively, last year.
In addition, Bobby Witt Jr., who was considered a future MVP with 20 home runs and 30 steals last year, and Jazz Chisom Jr., who recorded 14 home runs and 12 steals in just 60 games, were named.
Cedric Mullins, who went on to hit 30 home runs and 30 stolen bases two years ago, Fernando Tatis Jr., who hit 42 home runs and 21 stolen bases, and Kyle Tucker, who hit 30 home runs and 25 steals last year, are likely candidates to hit 40 home runs and 40 stolen bases last year. was evaluated as
