Garcia, who was released after being pushed out by Kim Gwang-hyun, stands out as a starting player in Texas Dramatic reconciliation with Texas ahead of salary adjustment
Texas Adolis Garcia
Outfielder Adolis Garcia (30), the leading player in winning the World Series (WS) in the 2023 season of Major League Baseball (MLB), has signed a two-year contract with his team, the Texas Rangers, worth $14 million (approximately). A contract was signed for 18.7 billion won.
MLB.com reported on the 9th (Korean time), “Garcia signed a contract to avoid salary adjustments. He can receive $14 million in guaranteed money over two years and up to $20.25 million with options.” 메이저사이트
Garcia and his team Texas were facing a salary adjustment due to differences of opinion on the salary this winter, but the salary adjustment committee successfully resolved the issue by agreeing to a multi-year contract on the 9th.
Garcia is the key player in winning the WS in the 2023 season.
He had a batting average of 0.323, 8 home runs, and 22 RBIs in 15 postseason games, including hitting a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 11th inning of the first overtime game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
In the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros, he hit home runs in four consecutive games and received the Series Most Valuable Player Award (MVP).
It was ‘Ok-e-ti’ who fell off the horse due to injury ahead of the 4th game of WS.
Garcia attracted even more attention because he rose to prominence after living in obscurity for a long time.
Garcia was pushed off the 40-man roster in 2019 while playing for the St. Louis Cardinals and was put on hold for release.
At the time, St. Louis, which had recruited Kim Gwang-hyun (now SSG Landers), had to remove one player from the 40-man roster, and that player was Garcia.
Garcia also had a hard time in Texas. After being released again, he became a minor leaguer under Texas, and in 2021, he was included in the ‘taxi squad’ with Yang Hyun-jong (currently KIA Tigers).
At the time, MLB placed four players outside the 40-man roster in the ‘taxi squad‘ and allowed them to accompany them in case a player suddenly infected with the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) appeared during a visiting game.
Garcia did not miss the opportunity to join the taxi squad. He rose to the starting lineup that year and established himself as an irreplaceable player by hitting 31 home runs. 토토사이트
