‘Springs → Fairbanks → Dias → ERA 1.56 to the bullpen?’… “We’re talking about a multi-year contract.”
Will Jason Adam (31) sign a multi-year contract with Tampa Bay before going to the salary adjustment committee?
The American media’MLB Trade Rumors (MLBTR)’ reported on the 6th (Korean time), “Mark Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, a Tampa Bay area newspaper, reported that Adam had some conversations with the Tampa Bay Rays about a multi-year contract prior to the salary adjustment hearing. did,” he said.
Drafted by the Kansas City Royals with the 149th overall pick in the 5th round of the 2010 draft, Adam didn’t get a chance to hit the big leagues until 2018. Adam, who made his major league debut in May 2018, had a poor performance with a 6.12 earned run average (ERA) of 22 runs (22 earned) in 31 games, 3 losses, 2 holds, and 32⅓ innings.
Adam, who was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays ahead of the start of the 2019 season, succeeded in making his name known with 23 games, 3 wins, 4 holds, 21⅔ innings, 8 runs (7 earned runs) and an average ERA of 2.91. However, he was released as a non-tender at the end of the season and wore a Chicago Cubs uniform. In the 2020 season, which was shortened in the aftermath of Corona 19, he recorded an average ERA of 3.29 in 13 games, 2 wins, 1 loss, 13⅔ innings and 7 runs (5 earned runs). In the 2021 season, he was sluggish with an average ERA of 5.91 in 12 games, 1 win, 2 holds, 10⅔ innings and 7 runs (7 earned). Eventually, he was released again and went in search of a new team.
The club that reached out to Adam was Tampa Bay. And Adam showed his best side after his debut. Adam appeared in 67 games, recording 2 wins스포츠토토, 3 losses, 22 holds, 8 saves, 63⅓ innings, 12 runs (11 earned), and an ERA of 1.56.
Adam, who performed the best, asked for 1.775 million dollars (about 2.2 billion won) as an annual salary this season. However, Tampa Bay is offering 1.55 million dollars (about 1.9 billion won). There was no big difference, but a salary adjustment hearing was scheduled to be held to resolve it. However, that may change as Tampa Bay offers Adam a multi-year contract. If Adam accepts a multi-year deal with Tampa Bay, he’ll be ready this season without a salary adjustment hearing.
Ahead of this season, there were a total of seven players to go to the salary adjustment hearing in Tampa Bay. However, three of them joined hands with the club by signing multi-year contracts. Jeffrey Springs signed a contract for 4 years, 31 million dollars (approximately 38.5 billion won), Pete Fairbanks signed a 3-year contract, 12 million dollars (approximately 15 billion won), and Yandy Dias signed a 3-year contract for 24 million dollars (approximately 30 billion won). It remains to be seen whether Adam will be the fourth player to sign a multi-year contract after three.
