‘Super utility’ Dylan Moore (31), who played all positions except catcher for the past four years, has signed a three-year contract with the Seattle Mariners.
ESPN, an American sports channel, reported on the 2nd (Korean time) that Moore agreed to a three-year, $8.875 million contract with Seattle to avoid salary adjustments.
Originally, Moore was scheduled to qualify as a free agent (FA) player at the end of the 2024 season. Accordingly, this contract is a contract that includes the first year of FA as well as the qualification for salary adjustment application.
Moore, who will be entering his 5th year in the major leagues, is a player who plays all positions except catcher. In 2019, his major league debut, he also played one game as a pitcher.
In his last season, he played 5 games at first base, 10 games at second base, 23 games at shortstop, 13 games in left field, 7 games in center field, and 27 스포츠토토 games in right field. He also appeared in 19 career games as a third baseman.
His batting performance, excluding on-base percentage, is not good. In 104 games last season, Moore recorded a batting average of 0.224, 6 home runs and 24 RBIs, and an on-base percentage of 0.368 and an OPS of 0.753.
However, his ability to play multiple positions was the driving force behind the 3-year contract. Moore will continue to scratch Seattle’s itch.
