Texas reinforces the back door…’Total 91SV’ Will Smith joins
The Texas Rangers, who have a poor back door, embraced veteran left-handed pitcher Will Smith.
Texas said on its official website on the 5th (Korean time), “The club recruited Will Smith for $1.5 million a year. He’s back with director Bruce Bochy.”
Smith is a veteran left-hander who is entering his 11th season this year. He went 31-34 with a 3.59 ERA, 91 saves, 107 holds and 664 strikeouts for his career. He was a one-time All-Star and two-time World Series champion.
Last year, he went through the Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros and recorded 3 losses, a 3.97 ERA, 5 saves, 16 holds and 65 strikeouts.메이저사이트
He studied under Bochy at the San Francisco Giants from 2016 to 2019, and this time with Texas.
“I like old school managers,” said Smith. Computers abound these days, but baseball sometimes requires you to trust your intuition. Bochi is such a director,” he said, and was happy to reunite.
“He is very likely to be used later in the game,” said Bochy. He’s a left-handed pitcher with a good ball. He offers great options in a variety of roles,” he explained about the recruitment background. Smith headed to spring camp right after joining the Texas Rangers, and on this day, he threw the ball and prepared for his new season.
Currently, Texas has Ian Kennedy as the finisher, followed by Joe Barrow and Jose LeClock. Smith is added to this, and it is expected that he will play the role of a winning team.
