Reporter Yoonjun Ko = The Oakland Athletics and the Miami Marlins carried out a trade.
Reporter Jordan McPherson of the ‘Miami Herald’ reported on the 12th (Korean time), “Miami acquired AJ Puck through a trade with Oakland, and gave outfielder JJ Bluday in return.” The trade will be officially announced once the medical test passes.
Puck was named as the 6th overall pick in the 1st round of the 2016 draft, and was highly anticipated to be ranked 2nd in the 2021 season Auckland prospect rankings. He made his big league debut in 2019 and has been established since last year. 토토사이트
He digested 66.1 innings in 62 games last year and played the role of a winning group with 4 wins, 3 losses, 3.12 ERA, 20 holds, 4 saves and 76 strikeouts.
He’s new to Miami and looks set to lead the Miami left-handed bullpen alongside Tanner Scott and Stephen O’Court.
On the contrary, Bloodday, who was headed to Oakland, was nominated as the 4th overall pick in the first round in the 2019 draft, and Bloodday also raised expectations as 2nd in the Miami prospect rankings for the 2021 season.
Bloodday first stepped on the major league stage last year, and was somewhat sluggish with a batting average of 0.167, 5 home runs, and an OPS of 0.586. But at the age of 25, and now a rookie in his first season, Oakland decided he still had potential.
In fact, in Triple A, he showed a destructive appearance by recording 20 homers and an OPS of 0.835. Bloodday plays all outfield positions, but is expected to compete with Conor Capel and Seth Brown as he mainly plays right field.
