The San Diego Padres of the American Major League (MLB) have acquired right-handed starting pitcher Michael Waka (32).
ESPN of the United States said on the 15th (Korean time), “San Diego has agreed to a 4-year contract with Waka. He left only the medical test,” he revealed. Specific terms of the contract were not disclosed. MLB.com, the official homepage of the US Major League, predicted that the contract period would be 4 years.
The starting lineup has become stronger. Darvish You, Joe Musgrove, Blake Snell, Nick Martinez, and Seth Lugo have already been established. With the joining of Waka, a 6-selection system became possible. Through friendly competition, the final five can be selected. If there is a synergistic effect in the process, the icing on the cake. San Diego started last season with a sixth starter and confirmed a five-man rotation in the second half.
Waka stepped into the big leagues in 2013 with the St. Louis Cardinals. He won the National League Championship Series (NLCS) MVP that year. He was named an All-Star in 2015. He played in St. Louis until 2019. 토토사이트
