The Los Angeles Angels have succeeded in strengthening their bullpen.
The Angels announced on the 17th (Korean time) 토토사이트 through their official website and social media that “the club signed a one-year contract with left-handed pitcher Matt Moore.” The contract size is $7.55 million for one year.
Moore, a veteran pitcher entering his 12th season in the major leagues, recorded a career record of 61-62 with a 4.45 ERA and 952 strikeouts.
He played mainly as a starting pitcher, but after suffering a slump, he transformed into a bullpen pitcher last year. The result was a great success. With a record of 5 wins, 2 losses, ERA of 1.95, 14 holds, 5 saves, and 83 strikeouts, he played the role of a winning team.
“I think the way I use what I have now has completely changed,” Moore said. I will work hard for the new team,” he said, expressing his feelings on joining.
Angels general manager Perry Minacian said, “Moore had a great year in the 2022 season. The bullpen was an area the club wanted to continue improving. Recruiting him will be a big help.”
By acquiring Moore, the Angels have three left-handed pitchers in the bullpen along with Jose Quihada and Aaron Roof. It is expected to play the role of a winning team along with the newly recruited Carlos Estevez and the existing Ryan Tepera.
Meanwhile, the Angels, whose 40-man roster has overflowed with Moore’s acquisition, placed right-hander Davis Daniels on the 60-day disabled list.
