Jurickson Profar, who was ranked in the top 50 free agent rankings this offseason, is still in the market without a contract.
Profar waived his $7.5 million option after last season and went on the market for a $1 million buyout. He and his agent, Scott Boras, were on the market looking for long-term contracts.
Profar had a batting average of .243 with 15 home runs, 58 RBIs, and 82 runs for the San Diego Padres last year with an OPS of .723, and his defense was average. It looked like it would help any team, but the problem was the salary.
He is said to be seeking a contract worth more than $10 million per season. As a result, interest in him disappeared, and in the meantime, many free agent competitors sought the team.
Initially, there were many evaluations that the New York Yankees, Atlanta Braves, Tampa Bay Rays, Texas Rangers, and Kansas City Royals would suit him, but all seemed to be reluctant to recruit him due to the high salary.먹튀검증
‘MLB Trade Rumors’ said, “Realistically, it doesn’t seem easy for Profar to sign a good contract now. Most teams have completed their outfield composition, and even if they recruited him, he would be classified as a backup. “Not many teams want to spend a lot of money on backups,” he said.
“Fortunately, there is no possibility of a contract at all. Profar will wear a Dutch uniform to the World Baseball Classic (WBC). If he does well there, or if another major league outfielder gets injured, he may need a pro far. He will have to wait for the tournament to end,” he explained.
Meanwhile, Propa’s Netherlands is in Group A, with Cuba, Italy, Panama and Taiwan. The Netherlands will have its first match against Cuba at 1:00 pm on the 8th (Korean time).
