Geopo third baseman, but after joining CIN, he hit 21 homers… Minor contract with COL

Reporter Yoon-Jun Ko = Mike Moustakas, who showed tremendous destructive power enough to hit 38 homers in one season, found a new team.

Colorado Rockies reporter Thomas Harding of ‘’ reported on the 6th (Korean time), “Colorado has signed a non-roster contract with corner infielder Mustakas, who was released from the Cincinnati Reds in January.”

Moustakas is a veteran third baseman who played 12 seasons in the major leagues. He recorded a career batting average of 0.247, 203 homers, 635 RBIs, 552 runs, and an OPS of 0.743. He debuted with the Kansas City Royals and played as the starting third baseman all along, was a three-time All-Star, and won a World Series championship ring in 2015. 토토사이트

Afterwards, he went through the Milwaukee Brewers and signed a four-year, $64 million contract with Cincinnati, but crashed after hitting only 21 homers in three seasons after joining. Eventually, he estranged himself from the team’s plan, and they released him with a penalty.

Moustakas’ move to Colorado could be a win-win for both the team and the player. Colorado will lose current second baseman Brandon Rodgers to injury, so third baseman Ryan McMahon is expected to take over second base. Prospect Elephris Montero is at third base, but plans to add veteran Moustakas to increase depth.

Also, Mustakas’ power is likely to shine at Coors Field, Colorado’s home ground. Coors Field is also called the ‘graveyard of pitchers’ as a major league home run stadium. If he re-enters the major leagues, he has a very good chance of making a comeback.
