The San Diego Padres, who are aiming to win the World Series, officially announced the extension of the contract with ‘veteran right-handed starting pitcher’ Darvish Yu (37).
The San Diego club said on the 10th (Korean time) that it had signed a six-year contract with Darvish through its official SNS. San Diego delivered the news in Japanese as well as English.
In addition, San Diego posted a picture of Darvish’s pitching motion on social media with the phrase ‘extension of contract’. It seems to care about Japanese fans.
This was officially announced less than half a day after the news of the agreement to extend the contract was reported. It can be seen that there is no abnormality in Darvish’s physical condition.
Darvish had previously announced that he would retire at the end of his 37-year-old season. However, Darvish will continue his career until the 2026 season, when he will be 42 years old.
His average annual amount is not large. $18 million. However, the fact that the 37-year-old pitcher was given a six-year contract means that San Diego has high hopes for Darvish.
Darvish, who will enter his 11th year in the major leagues, threw 194 2/3 innings in 30 games last year, going 16-8 with a 3.10 ERA. Cy Young 8th place.
This is the best performance since 2013 when he played for the Texas Rangers, excluding the shortened season in 2020. As a result, it seems that San Diego gave Darvish a six-year contract.
Until last year, Darvish threw 1488 innings in 242 games, recording a record of 95 wins and 75 losses with an ERA of 3.50. 1788 strikeouts. We will achieve 100 wins within the 2023 season. 스포츠토토
In addition, if Darvish adds 30 wins, he will surpass Park Chan-ho’s 124 wins and become the main character with the most wins by an Asian pitcher. The odds of adding 30 wins in 6 years are very good.
