The new Ruth.- In Anaheim they are desperate to see the Angels, with Shohei Ohtani as slugger and pitcher. The Babe Ruth Siglo XXI, who is recovering from Tommy John, has shown very good speed in his bullpen sessions these days ...
And five more.- In addition to Ohtani, there are no less than five other bigleaguers prepared with rookie cravings, for a notable comeback. All of them need, after the 2019 story, a season of success. Unfortunately, season on hold and you know why. They are…:
Miguel Cabrera, 1B, Tigers.- The maracayero was healthy during 2019, which bodes well, even though his totals of 12 home runs and 59 RBIs that year were far less than expected, one of the most notable sluggers of recent times. He has had 10 seasons of 30 or more home runs, including 2012 with 44, and 12 seasons with 100 or more RBIs, 139 in 2012. The Tigers are committed to him through 2025, at $ 184 million.
Joey Votto, 1B, Reds.- He is considered one of the smartest hitters in both leagues, which is why Cincinnati was alarmed, when in 2019 he hit 261, with 15 homers and 47 RBIs. And since he turned 36 in September, they fear that father time has invaded him.
Trevor Bauer, P. Rojos.- He posted a 2.21 ERA in 2018, so he appeared to be a remarkable pitcher. That is why the Reds acquired it from the Indians, believing it suitable for líder of the rotation, but in 2019 with them, he was 2-5 in 10 starts, 6.39 ERA. The Reds are going to insist on him to lead the starters.
Eric Hosmer, 1B, Parents.- In San Diego they need him like he was hitting with the Royals. In 2019, he had a batting average of 265, 22 home runs and 99 RBIs, but the on-base percentage of 310 does not satisfy the team, nor does it justify his fees of $ 21 million annually. Plus, he's at the best age of most bigleaguers, 30.
Edwin Diaz, P.D. Mets.- This 26-year-old Dominican from Naguabo saved 57 games for the Mariners in 2018, with a 1.96 ERA. So he came to Citi Field in 2019, with the aura that he could be the líder of the bullpen. But then he saved 26 and posted a 5.59 ERA. Less than half saved! Of course, something is not right, but very wrong.
