Franmil Reyes, who made two 30 home run seasons, but suffered a slump last year, found a new team.온라인바카라
‘MLB.com’ Kansas City Royals reporter Ann Rogers said on the 16th (Korean time), “According to sources, Kansas City has signed a minor league contract with Reyes. He will join spring training as a non-roster player.”
A native of the Dominican Republic, Reyes signed with the San Diego Padres in 2011 on an international amateur contract. After that, he first stepped on the big league stage in 2018, and went through the Cleveland Guardians and the Chicago Cubs.
He recorded a career batting average of 0.251, 106 homers, 278 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.783. In particular, he is a player with a very high home run rate, with 106 of his 457 hits being home runs.
However, he has poor contact and poor defense with a career DRS of -15 in right field, his main position. Fortunately for him, his defense last season was average. (DRS 0)
His defense has been somewhat stable, but this time his hitting has been a problem. He was sluggish last season with a batting average of 0.221 and 14 home runs OPS of 0.638, recording the lowest home run except for the 2020 season, which was shortened in the aftermath of the new coronavirus infection.
Right now, he’s not looking to break through the Kansas City roster. Younger Kyle Isbel and Edward Olivarez are expected to fill the right field spot, while Vinny Pasquantino, Salvador Perez and MJ Melendez will rotate the designated hitter spot.
If Reyes does well in spring training and can bounce back to a 30-home run season, it’ll be a big help for Kansas City. He still has time until free agency, so there is a possibility that he will be together for a long time.
