The US’MLB.com’ said on the 20th (Korean time), “A source said that right-handed pitcher Lugo has agreed to a two-year contract with the San Diego Padres.” It is worth about 19.5 billion won), and there is a clause that allows you to opt out after the first season is over.”
Lugo, who joined the New York Mets with the 1032 overall pick in the 34th round of the 2011 draft, made his major league debut in 2016. Lugo, who showed potential with an average ERA of 2.67 in 17 games (8 starts) in the 2016 season, 5 wins, 2 losses, 64 innings, 19 runs 토토사이트 (19 ERA), played an active role as a starting pitcher in the 2017 season. Starting 18 of 19 games, Lugo recorded 7 wins, 5 losses, 101⅓ innings, 57 runs (53 ERA), and an ERA of 4.71.
Since then, Lugo has been mainly active as a bullpen pitcher, but has also been active as a starting pitcher. He started 7 of 16 games in the 2020 season. However, he has been steadily active as a bullpen pitcher since the 2021 season. This season, he played an active part in 62 games, 3 wins, 2 losses, 65 innings, 26 runs (26 earned), and an earned run average of 3.60.
While Lugo has been playing as a bullpen pitcher lately, there’s a chance he’ll be a starter next season in San Diego. ‘MLB.com’ said, “San Diego lost Sean Manea and Mike Clevinger as free agents before next season. The starting rotation needs reinforcement.”
“San Diego currently boasts the best starting rotation with Darvish Yu, Joe Musgrove, and Blake Snell. However, there is a question mark after the third start,” he said. “Nick Martinez is expected to occupy one of the remaining rotation vacancies. I got a chance to get into the starting rotation.”
Martinez, who joined San Diego ahead of the 2022 season, was active as a starting pitcher at the beginning of the season. Following the subsequent return of Snell and Clevinger, he switched roles as a bullpen pitcher. Martinez recorded an average ERA of 3.47 with 44 runs (41 earned) in 47 games (10 starts), 4 wins, 4 losses, 106⅓ innings.
