“Batters 1 to 4 are drawn by lot?” San Diego’s happy thoughts
Together, the four of them are 12 all-stars and 11 silver sluggers, and the weight is enormous. Now all that remains is to arrange it well.
On the 24th (Korean time), San Diego Padres manager Bob Melvin confided his concerns about the composition of the batting line at a meeting with local media such as ‘MLB.com’ at the club’s spring camp training ground in Peoria, Arizona, USA.
He said, “What I said as a joke yesterday is that Soto No. 2 and Manny No. 3 are certain,” he said. “Tomorrow’s game will not look like that either. The composition of the batting line will ultimately determine how comfortable (hitters) feel. I will see how it goes,” he said.
San Diego has three quality hitters in Juan Soto, Manny Machado and Xander Bogatz. Here, after playing the first 20 games of the season, Fernando Tatis Jr. will return.
The key is how you arrange these four people. It’s a happy worry.
Melvin said of this ‘happy worry’, saying, “If Tatis returns, we will be able to draw numbers 1 through 4 by drawing lots.” 카지노사이트
Of course, in practice, the composition of the batting line will not be drawn by lot. There are several issues to consider.
The biggest variable is Tatis, who has not played a major league game for over a year.
Tatis underwent surgery on his wrist and shoulder while he was sidelined due to drug discipline. Currently, he is undergoing normal training at spring camp.
Melvin said, “I’ll see how he shows up first,” and said that the first thing to do is to check Tatis’ condition.
Regarding the leadoff appointment of Juan Soto, who is recording a career on-base percentage of 0.424, he drew a line, saying, “I’m not thinking about that position right now.” “The players don’t seem to enjoy it very much. There are other players on our team who enjoy this role.”
