‘FA eating and running’ shortstop with 183 billion won, foolish play… Angry coach, 2nd censure replacement

Javier Baez (Detroit Tigers), who became a free agent, was reprimanded for his foolish play this time and was replaced with an blame.  

On the 14th (Korean time), the game between Detroit and Toronto was held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Canada. Baez got on base with a double in the middle of the month after one out in the second inning. It was the first long hit of the season. His batting average for the season went up from 100% to 10202.

But the joy is short-lived. 토토사이트When the follow-up hitter Akil Badu’s batted ball flew toward the center fielder, Baez ran vigorously from second base to third base without looking back. It wasn’t until he got to third base (looking at his baserunning coach) that he realized something was wrong, but it was too late. Baez, who misunderstood the out count, ended the inning with a double out without returning to second base. (After the game, Baez said he had mistaken it for two outs)

Detroit coach AJ Hinch watched the situation with a firm expression, and when Baez returned to the dugout, he called him to the passage behind the dugout. After a while, the coach and players returned to the dugout, and Baez packed up his gear and went into the locker room. This is because manager Hinch immediately replaced him.

“We’ve made a lot of mental mistakes in the last couple of series,” Hinch said after the game. One thing we can control is preparation. Baez made a big mistake. There is also a message that raises awareness for the entire team.”

Baez, who became a free agent at the end of the 2021 season, signed a six-year, $140 million (approximately 183 billion won) contract with Detroit. However, the first year of the contract was disappointing. was

He was also sluggish this season, going 2-for-29 (batting average of 6 punters and 9 runs) in his first 8 games after the start. In the last 10 days against Boston, he went 2 hits in 4 at-bats and recorded his first multi-hit, but since then he has been silent with no hits in 2 consecutive games. He hit a long hit for the first time in his season against Toronto on the 14th, but it was cold water with an absurd play from the base. 

Baez’s performance this season is as of the 14th, he has a batting average of 1.2 0.2 (5 hits in 41 at-bats) and 1 RBI OPS of .328. He also ranks lowest in batting average and lowest OPS among the 25 major league shortstops who have filled regulation at bats. OPS is 202nd among all 204 big leaguers who have filled the required at-bats.
