Tanaka No. 2 and Tanaka No. 4 will fill the Yankees’ starters, Sugano.
The New York Yankees are looking at Japanese pitchers again.
The U.S. SNY introduced five pitchers on the 9th (Korea time) that the Yankees are considering recruiting to reorganize their starters. While Jose Quintana (31), Corey Kluber (34), and Taihuan Walker (28) were named the first, third and fifth candidates, Masahiro Tanaka (32) and Tomoyuki Sugano (31) were also mentioned as the second and fourth candidates.
The media said, “Many Yankee fans don’t want to see Tanaka wearing a jersey other than a pinstrip. We want to come back to the Yankees,” he said first, conveying the local atmosphere.
Tanaka made his Major League debut in 2014 in the Yankees’ uniform and has played steadily until this year. After finishing this season, he became an FA. The Yankees didn’t offer Danaka a qualifying offer, but the chances of staying still remain.
However, variables also exist. SNY said, “Danaka is 32 years old this year. It is also worrisome that the elbow ligament has ruptured, it said, hinting that the renewal may be difficult. 파워볼게임
Of course, we can’t ignore Tanaka’s strengths. It’s his performance in the postseason. For the Yankees, whose goal is to win the World Series, it is a valuable resource to miss. “Danaka had a 3.56 ERA in 10 starts this season, but he had a difficult postseason for the first time in his career,” the media said. Still, Tanaka’s career postseason ERA is still 3.33, he said, stressing the need to recruit Tanaka.
Another Japanese pitcher’s name was also mentioned. He was Sugano, who recently declared a major league challenge. Sugano, who played for the Yomiuri Giants, recently made it official to advance to the Major League through posting.
SNY said, “Many major league teams are expected to pay attention to Sugano’s talent. “The Yankees are one of them,” he said. “Sugano recorded a 2.34 ERA in his career in the Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB). He also won the Sawamura Award twice for the best pitchers. 파워볼사이트
But “Swano is 31 years old now. It’s different from when Tanaka first came to the Yankees. So we may not receive a similar level of money as Tanaka,” he predicted. Tanaka moved to the Major League in 2014 when he was 26, but the fact that Sugano is five years older than him could be a stumbling block.
Of course, the value of Sugano is still high. Especially for the Yankees, who need a starting pitcher, it is hard to turn a blind eye to Sugano’s long-standing existence in the NPB.
SNY said, “Sgano is the NPB’s best pitcher. In addition, the Yankees are interested in new faces that Major League hitters have yet to play,” he said, cautiously predicting the possibility of recruiting.
