Japan’s best ‘ace’ pitcher Yoshinobu Yamamoto. Are you a target for the St. Louis Cardinals?
The St. Louis Post Dispatch, a local newspaper in St. Louis, USA, published an article on the 15th (Korean time) predicting the reinforcement of the starting rotation of St. Louis next season.안전놀이터
In St. Louis, 42-year-old “eternal ace” Adam Wainwright announced his retirement after this season. Wainwright is a ‘one-club man’ who only played for one team after being nominated by St. Louis and is a symbol of the Cardinals. As such a player is about to retire, major changes are inevitable for St. Louis next season.
In particular, it was emphasized that the starters should fill at least two positions. ‘The Post Dispatch said, “The most interesting choice is Yamamoto,” and “all clubs hoping to reinforce pitchers are aiming for Yamamoto.”
In fact, Yamamoto is the best pitcher in Japanese professional baseball, whose pitches are frequently checked by major league clubs. He is currently playing for the Orix Buffaloes, but he is a pitcher with a high degree of success even if he goes to the major leagues right away. At the WBC held last March, he proved that he is very sophisticated with his fast ball and throwing power from his small body. The most stable ‘ace’ pitcher in the Japanese baseball team is Yamamoto.
The Post Dispatch said, “The Cardinals have had success in recent years by recruiting Kwang-Hyun Kim, Seung-Hwan Oh, and Miles Michaels, who have a lot of experience in Asian baseball.
There are not one or two teams aiming for Yamamoto, but if St. Louis also actively jumps in, it is an environment where there is a chance of winning. The media also said, “Considering that the New York Mets paid 30-year-old Senga Kodai for a total of $75 million over five years last offseason, Yamamoto, now only 25 years old, can win a contract worth $20 million a year.” predicted.
