Julio Rodriguez Adapts To Major League Baseball

Dominican outfielder Julio Rodriguez had a very poor record in the first month of Major League Baseball, and many understood that the Seattle Mariners made a mistake leaving a 21-year-old player in the majors. ..

And how don’t you think about it? In his first 20 games, Rodriguez recorded .206 with an on-base percentage of .284 and a slugging percentage of .260.

To make matters worse, Rodriguez did not seem to see the ball, as evidenced by 30 strikeouts at 73 at bats, or 1 strikeout every 2.4 at bats.

Rodriguez was bad, very bad. However, the Mariners were so confident that they would send a letter to Major League Baseball complaining about how the referee was singing at the child’s at bat.

The vote of trust was rewarded, and the Tokyo 2020 bronze medalist shows why the Mariners decided to give him a center fielder.

In 14 games in May, Rodriguez hit two home runs with a percentage line of .346 / .393 / .519.

His .912 OPS was elite and his total strikeouts were reduced to 13 at 52 at bats, or to 1 strikeout for every 4 at bats.

The Mariners are no doubt trusting their outlook, and as expected, he proves it with a clean stick.

Pujols pitching?

In a game where he shot two doubles and won two returns, Albert Pujols did what he hadn’t done in Major League Baseball for 21 years.

Pujols took the mound, threw one inning in a 15-2 match and allowed four runs, including two home runs.

According to media reports, manager Oliver Marmol didn’t want to use the pitcher in the final episode and asked someone in the dugout to take over the inning.

Pujols said it was his dream and took on the “challenge” to achieve another feat in his career.

Regardless of the 13-run lead that the Cardinal had at the time, I claim that using a fielder as a pitcher is a mistake and somewhat loose.
