Araes, AL batting average leader, traded to Miami
The Miami Marlins embraced Luis Araes (26), who ranked first in batting average in the American League (AL) last year.
MLB.com reported on the 21st (Korean time), “Miami traded pitcher Pablo Lopez, infielder Jose Salas, and outfielder Byron Churio to the Minnesota Twins for Araez.”
Araes, who entered the big league wearing a Minnesota uniform in 2019, recorded a batting average of 0.316, 8 homers and 49 RBIs in 144 games last year.
As he climbed to the top of the AL batting average for the first time since his debut, he also stopped the batting triple crown of Aaron Judge (New York Yankees). Judge had a batting average of 0.311 in the 2022 season, with 62 home runs and 131 RBIs, but the triple crown was frustrated by missing the top spot in batting average.
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Araes is the first player since Rod Carew in 1978 to transfer immediately after winning the batting title. 온라인바카라
Curru played for Minnesota in the 1978 season and became the batting king with a batting average of 0.333, and wore a California Angels uniform as a trade ahead of the 1979 season.
Minnesota gained starting resources and prospects in exchange for Araes.
Lopez posted a 10-10 ERA of 3.75 in 32 games last year, racking up double-digit wins for the first time since his big league debut in 2018. Salas and Churio are expected to be promising players.
