‘Dodgers release’ Bauer’s blitz to Japan, a joke three years ago turned into reality
The Cy Young Award winner of the Major 메이저사이트 League (MLB) three years ago, still in his early 30s, chose to go to Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB). However, I have already made a notice, not a notice, in the past.
NPB Yokohama DeNA Baystars announced on the 14th that they had signed a contract with Trevor Bauer (32) for the 2023 season. Details of the contract were not announced, but according to Japan’s Sankei Sports, it is said to be worth 400 million yen (approximately 3.9 billion won).
“I am very excited to be able to play for Yokohama this season. I don’t think there is a better team than Yokohama,” Bauer said of the club. expressed his feelings.
He added, “I look forward to meeting my fellow players and fans. I hope to see you on the streets of Yokohama.”
Bauer’s trip to Japan is obviously shocking. Bauer, who debuted in the major leagues in 2012, was consistently evaluated as a promising player, and started with 11 wins in 2015 and settled in the big league starting position. In particular, in the 60-game shortened season in 2020, when he played in Cincinnati, he won the National League Cy Young Award with a good record of 5 wins, 4 losses and an average ERA of 1.73.
Amidst this performance, Bauer signed a three-year, $120 million (approximately 156.2 billion won) contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers ahead of the 2021 season. By June of his first season, he had posted a solid record of 8-5 with a 2.59 ERA, but was banned from the mound due to sexual assault allegations.
