The Los Angeles Dodgers expand their left field options.
ESPN major league reporter Jeff Passan reported on the 11th (Korean time) that the Dodgers had agreed to a one-year, $6.5 million contract with outfielder David Peralta (36).
The bankruptcy explained that the contract is a structure that can increase up to $ 8 million with an incentive included contract.
Peralta, a left-handed hitter, played in 1008 games over nine seasons in the major leagues, recording a batting average of 0.281, an on-base percentage of 0.339, and a slugging percentage of 0.457. He won Silver Slugger in 2018 and Gold Glove in 2019.
He played nine seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks and was traded to the Tampa Bay Rays during last season. 스포츠토토
He played in 134 games for both teams, batting average of .251, on-base percentage, .316, slugging percentage of .415, 12 home runs, and 59 RBI.
Last season, he recorded a batting average of 0.267 against righties, an on-base percentage of 0.329, and a slugging percentage of 0.449, showing better performances than against lefties (0.154 / 0.247 / 0.215).
He has experience playing all three outfield positions, but since 2019 he has been focusing on left field.
The picture of the Dodgers outfield is still unclear. Aside from Mookie Betts’ spot in right field, the other two positions do not yet have an assigned owner.
Peralta is expected to share the left field spot with Chris Taylor and Trace Thompson. Considering the large difference in his left and right opponents, he is highly likely to be used as a platoon.
