Ohtani Shohei (29, LA Angels), who conquered the major league stage with an overwhelming pitching double-up, was listed in the top 10 starting pitchers.
The US MLB Network announced on the 2nd (Korean time) that it selected and announced the top 10 starting pitchers for the 2023 season. The best starting pitchers in both leagues have been named.
Ohtani was ranked 6th overall and 2nd in the American League in this announcement. This means that Ohtani, who has excellent hitting enough to win the Silver Slugger, is a Cy Young Award-winning pitcher.
In fact, Ohtani pitched 166 innings in 28 games last season as a pitcher, recording 15 wins and 9 losses with an ERA of 2.33. His strikeouts reached a whopping 219. 메이저사이트
As a result, Ohtani finished fourth in the American League Cy Young Award voting. What is even more surprising is that Ohtani has achieved pitching performance by appearing in 157 games as a hitter.
Ohtani recorded a batting average of 0.273, 34 home runs, 95 RBIs, 90 runs, 160 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.356 OPS of 0.875 in 157 games as a hitter last season.
In other words, Ohtani achieved amazing results to be selected as an All-Star for both pitches. This is why he is expected to win contracts worth more than $500 million in aggregate.
In this announcement, Corbin Burns, who won the National League Cy Young Award in the 2021 season, rose to the top spot. This is considered a somewhat unexpected result.
It was followed by Justin Verlander, who received the American League Cy Young award last year, and Carlos Rodon, who won a major contract despite doubts about his physical condition.
In addition, Max Scherzer, who teamed up with Verlander at the New York Mets, was fourth, and Sandy Alcantara, who won the National League Cy Young Award last year, was fifth.
Max Fried, Jack Wheeler, Jacob deGrom and Julio Urias continued to occupy 7th through 10th places. DeGrom, who was considered the best player in his career, fell to ninth place.
