‘MLB.com’ said on the 2nd (Korean time), “On the trade deadline, San Diego gave up prospects such as left-handed pitcher Jack Wolf, outfielder Estuar Suero, and first baseman Alfonso Rivas to the Pittsburgh Pirates and traded veteran left-handed pitcher Richie Hill and 1 We recruited baseman Choi Ji-man.” As a result, Choi Ji-man went through the Seattle Mariners, Baltimore Orioles (above the minor league team), LA Angels, New York Yankees, Milwaukee Brewers, Tampa Bay Rays, and Pittsburgh before settling down in San Diego. In Pittsburgh, Ji-Hwan Choi was with Bae Ji-Hwan.
In August 2009, when he was in Dongsan High School, Choi Ji-man signed a contract with Seattle after receiving a down payment of $425,000,000 and moved to the United States. He worked his way through the minor leagues and made his big league debut in 2016 with the Angels. His career major league performance was a batting average of 0.238 with 67 home runs and 236 RBI, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.771. In 2020, he became the first Korean fielder to make the World Series stage.
This year, he spent three months in rehabilitation due to a left Achilles tendon injury in April, and returned to the big leagues on July 8. His performance this season was a batting average of 0.205, 6 homers and 11 RBIs. ‘MLB.com’ said, “Choi Ji-man is the left-handed big shot who San Diego was looking for. He predicted that if the opponent puts up a right-handed starting pitcher, he will start as a designated hitter, and if a left-handed pitcher comes out, he will wait on the bench as a pinch hitter.” It means that it will be used as a platoon system.
Meanwhile, New York Mets Justin Verlander (40) returned to the Houston Astros after nine months. The Mets received Houston’s top prospects, outfielders Drew Gilbert (22) and Ryan Clifford (20), instead of Verlander. The Mets will also compensate for $35 million of Verlander’s remaining two-year salary. If Verlander achieves the 2025 option, he will also give the $17.5 million he receives instead. Verlander wore a Houston uniform from 2017 to 2022 and won two American League Cy Young Awards, two World Series wins, and a third no-hitter in his career.
