The Minnesota Twins traded Luis Arares, the ‘American League batting champion’ last season, and received three players.
Minnesota announced on the 21st (Korean time), “The club carried out a trade for right-handed pitcher Pablo Lopez, infielder Jose Salas, and outfielder Byron Churio in exchange for Araez to the Miami Marlins.”
Araez made his debut in Minnesota in 2019 and only played for one team until last year. In particular, he led the American League in batting average last season with a batting average of 0.316, 8 home runs, 49 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.795. He had one of his best years, 온라인바카라 winning All-Star and Silver Slugger honors as well.
He still has three years left until free agency, so he has room for team planning. According to Miami general manager Kim Ng, Araez will be the starting second baseman.
Lopez, who was transferred to the opposite side, recorded 10-10 with a 3.75 ERA and 174 strikeouts last season. Most of these are career high records. He will form the starting lineup with Joe Ryan, Sonny Gray, Bailey Over, Tyler Mahle, Josh Winder, Chris Padek and Kenta Maeda.
Minnesota President Derek Palvey said, “Araez is definitely a wasteful player. It would be great if both players were on our team, but it is an unavoidable choice for trade. The club needed a really good starting pitcher.”
