Oakland, the ‘lowest hitter’, signs a one-year, $3 million contract with giant first baseman Aguilar

Last year, the Oakland Athletics stayed at the bottom of the major league batting average. Oakland, which did not properly reinforce the batting line during the offseason, had a giant first baseman.

‘MLB Network’ reporter Mark Finesand reported on the 25th (Korean time), “According to sources, Oakland has agreed to a $3 million contract with first baseman Jesus Aguilar.” The contract is pending medical testing and has not been formalized.

Oakland stayed at the bottom of the league last year with a team batting average of 0.216 and an OPS of 0.627. The team’s home runs also stayed at 137, ranking 27th in the major leagues. Seth Brown was the only player on the team to hit 20 home runs. Here, Brown is listed as a trade sale.

Aguilar is a great first baseman with a career batting average of 0.254, 109 homers, 393 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.773. He remembers hitting 35 homers in one season, and his defense at first base is above average.

However, Aguilar had a batting average of 0.235 last year, 16 homers, 51 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.661, which was below expectations. He needs a rebound, but Auckland Coliseum, home of Auckland, is not a good stadium for hitters. 온라인바카라

Along with strengthening the lineup, he is expected to play the role of buying time before Tyler Soderstrom is called up to the big leagues. Soderstrom is a first-rounder in the 2020 season, and is ranked first in the team’s prospect rankings, and his major league debut this season is likely.
