Cole Hamels, minor contract with San Diego
The San Diego Padres’ pitching reinforcement continues.
Local media such as the ‘San Diego Union-Tribune’ reported on the 17th (Korean time) that the Padres agreed to a minor league contract with Cole Hamels (40).
It is a condition of receiving먹튀검증 $2 million (2.583 billion won) if you join the big league roster.
Hamels is a veteran pitcher who is a 4-time All-Star and 2008 World Series MVP. He went 163-122 with a 3.43 earned run average in 423 appearances over 15 seasons in the major leagues.
He hasn’t made it to the big league mound since he pitched in one game with the Atlanta Braves in 2020.
A shoulder injury crippled him. He hasn’t made a single official appearance in the past two years.
It’s not like there weren’t any attempts at all. He signed a contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2021, but his return was canceled due to a recurrence of pain during training. 2022 spent a year as a savage.
Like most players, he seemed to disappear like that, but he doesn’t seem to have given up on his dream of playing.
Competition is fierce. San Diego already has a full rotation. Darvish Yu, Joe Musgrove, Blake Snell, Nick Martinez, Seth Lugo and Michael Waka make up the six-man rotation.
Here, Jay Groom, Rhys Knair, Ryan Weathers, Pedro Avila, Julio Teheran, and Wilmer Font joined the camp as invited players.
