A message from the head of the trade team. All the rumors are lies.
Luis Castillo (Cincinnati), who throws the best change-up in the Major League, is embroiled in a trade rumor. Then the leader hurried to extinguish the fire. “The rumor is a lie,” he personally texted reporters 파워볼엔트리
MLB.com said on the 18th (Korea time), “The rumor that Cincinnati is sending Castillo away for trade with the New York Yankees made headlines on SNS over the weekend. It gradually spread and became known to the extent that mainstream media reported it. On the evening of the 18th, Cincinnati’s chief executive Nick Kroll reportedly explained the rumor in person.
“(The rumor) is completely wrong,” he told reporters. We see Castillo as the starting pitcher for this season.
The origin of the rumor is unknown, but the leader also influenced it. Krall said there were no non-trade players throughout the offseason.
Starting pitcher Sonny Gray and third baseman Eugenio Suarez were trade candidates in the media spotlight. Cincinnati sent out closer Raiselle Iglesias to the Los Angeles Angels and trade, reducing the ransom by $9 million.
MLB.com explained that the Castillo trade rumor was not feasible. Clint Frazier and Miguel Anduha will come to Cincinnati, where Cincinnati has a solid lead in both the outfield and the corner infield.
Castillo also has three years to go before the FA. Cincinnati is trying to reduce its total annual salary, but that doesn’t mean it’s a rebuilding effort. Trade is not urgent right now.
Castillo was selected as the National League All-Star in 2019 with a 15 wins, 8 losses and a 3.40 ERA. Last season, he continued his career with a 3.21 ERA in 12 games. In 2019, he ranked first in the major league in the value of his change-up pitching, drawing attention.
