The giant hitter, who once became the home run king and went well, has fallen into a situation where he is barely looking for a new team with a minor league contract this year.메이저사이트
Major League Baseball’s official website (MLB.com) reported on the 22nd (Korean time), “The Milwaukee Brewers have agreed to a minor league contract with first baseman Luke Voight (32).”
Voight, who made his major league debut in 2017, had a batting average of .322 with 15 home runs and 36 RBIs after transferring to the New York Yankees in 2018. . Above all, the moment he shone the most was in 2020. At the time, the season was shortened, but Voight tasted the joy of winning the American League home run king with a batting average of .277, 22 homers, and 52 RBIs in 56 games.
Voit, who was traded to the San Diego Padres ahead of last season, was traded while he was still. San Diego agreed to trade six players for Juan Soto and Josh Bell from the Washington Nationals in July of last year. Initially, San Diego tried to use Eric Hosmer as a trade card, but problems arose when Hosmer used the no-trade right. San Diego ended up using Voit as a trade card instead, and Voit had to be traded out of the blue.
Voit’s performance last year was a batting average of .226 with 22 homers and 69 RBIs. Voight, who was released as a non-tender from Washington, had not been able to find a new nest so far, and he managed to get a chance to start afresh by signing a minor league contract with Milwaukee.
Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said, “Voit has been a really good hitter in the league and he’s been outstanding in recent years.” Voight’s contract is a minor league contract, but it also includes an invitation to major league spring training. Attention is focusing on whether Voight can succeed in reviving on the new stage of Milwaukee.
