I wonder if it was right to invest 169.4 billion won in four innings
How far should we trust Jose Berrios of the Toronto Blue Jays?
Toronto signed a seven-year, $131 million contract with Verios last November. He pitched 192 innings in 32 games last season, posting 12 wins and 9 losses and a 3.52 ERA and 204 strikeouts. Since the end of July, when he moved to Toronto from the Minnesota Twins, he has recorded 5 wins and 4 losses in 12 games and a 3.58 ERA.
Toronto proposed an unconventional seven-year contract period, considering the stability of throwing six innings on average, the age at which he is in full swing at 27, and his experience with more than 10 wins in Minnesota for three consecutive years. Analysts say the move is in preparation for the departure of Cy Young Award winner Robbie Ray and Ryu Hyun-jin’s aging.
However, Berrios, who started the opening game over Kevin Gausman this season, continues to pitch jaggedly. Problems include game management, hasty games, and unstable ball control.
In an away game against the Chicago White Sox at Garrented Rate Field on the 21st (Korea Standard Time), he lost by hitting nine hits, including three home runs, and allowing six runs in four innings. His ERA soared to 5.11 with five wins and three losses in the season. He had a quality start+ in the previous three games in a row, but on this day, he pitched his third early steel plate before the fifth inning of this season and his fourth five runs or more.
He threw 72 pitches, and his main weapon, Sinker, had a maximum speed of 95 miles, an average of 93.2 miles. Four-seam fastballs were up to 95.2 miles. Speed similar to the season average.
Berrios lost a run every inning. As soon as he took the mound in the bottom of the first inning, he gave up a left-center hit to Anderson, and allowed Bourne to take the lead after hitting a double to center field.
In the second inning with a 2-1 lead, Harrison was hit by a two-run home run in the middle of a 78-mile curve. In the third inning, a home run came out. Berrios, who gave up a heavy hit to the lead Bonn, allowed Robert a two-run shot to the left, widening the score gap to 2-5. It was caught in the center of Robert’s bat, which aimed at a 92-mile sinker in the first pitch, and led to a 436-foot-long arch.
Berrios also lost a run in the fourth inning, trailing 2-5. After two outs, the curve thrown to Bonn slightly flocked to the center, making it a solo home run over the middle fence 파워볼게임
In the top of the sixth inning, when Toronto was trailing 2-8, Teosca Hernandez brought in two runners with no outs and runners on first and second base, followed by Hernandez stepping home during Espinal’s grounder to catch up 5-8. In the ninth inning, Cavan Biggio’s two-run home run followed closely by one point. But that was it. It was hard to reverse the game that Berrios made a mistake.
Toronto, which lost 7-8, marked 38 wins and 29 losses and maintained second place in the American League East, but the gap with the third-place Boston Red Sox narrowed to 1.5 games.
