Alex Wood Dodgers to sign a $3 million a year contract with SF.
Alex Wood (30), a left-hander known as Ryu Hyun-jin’s teammate when he was with the Los Angeles Dodgers, will be wearing an earth rival team uniform.
The San Francisco Giants announced on January 15 (Korea time) that they had signed Wood on a one-year contract. Maria Guardado of MLB.com said Wood will receive up to $3 million in bonuses this season, depending on his performance 토토사이트
Wood, who made his Major League debut with the Atlanta Braves in 2013, is a player who plays an unusual pitching form and knuckle curve. Wood, who wore a Dodgers uniform through a trade involving three teams in 2015, won 16 wins and lost three times in 2017, ranking first in the league winning rate.
He later moved to the Cincinnati Reds in 2019 through trade and returned to the Dodgers after signing a one-year contract last year. In the 2020 season, he appeared in nine games and was somewhat sluggish with one loss and a 6.39 ERA without winning, but he pitched well in the World Series and won the championship ring.
San Francisco has a lot of right-handers such as Jani Cueto and Kevin Gaussman, but none of them have left-handed starters. “I’m trying to recruit a left-handed starting pitcher for the team,” said Scott Harris. We will be able to join the team in a few weeks, he said.
Although he has been sluggish in the last two seasons, Wood is a player who can play his part in the lower rotation. It is also believed that the fact that he had a relationship with San Francisco president Farhan Zaidi when he was with the Dodgers was a big reason for the recruitment.
