“I’ve got a new catcher”…wainwright’s text to Molina

An unfamiliar scene attracted great attention at the St. Louis Cardinals spring camp, which ranked first in the central region of the National League (NL) in the 2022 season. This is the story of Adam Wainwright (42), a veteran who lost his ‘soulmate’.

On the 14th (Korean time), introduced the St. Louis pitching and catcher training that had just begun at Jupiter Roger Dean Stadium in Florida, USA, and reported Wainwright’s first collaboration with the new main catcher, Wilson Contreras. 

Wainwright, a’one-club man’ who played for 18 years only in St. Louis, ends his career as a player after the 2023 season. This is his last spring camp. 

Wainwright is spending a familiar but unfamiliar February. This is because there is no catcher Yadier Molina, who has 213 wins in 328 games over 17 career seasons. ‘Legend Catcher’ Molina retired after last season. 

St. Louis chose Contreras as Molina’s successor. Debuting with the Chicago Cubs in the 2016 season, he played 734 games until last season and was a catcher who kept his home for 5017 and 2/3 innings. He is recognized as an offensive catcher, as evidenced by his record of hitting 20 homers four times (in a single season). In Stove League this winter, he signed a five-year contract with St. Louis for a total of $87 million. 

On this day, Wainwright checked his condition by throwing various pitches such as a cut fastball and curveball to Wilson. Wilson starts and Wainwright closes. It was the first training with different energy, but’s point of view is that it showed a willingness to create better breathing. 

Wainwright, who played his first bullpen pitching in spring camp with a catcher other than Molina, also seemed to have a different feeling. He told Molina after his first bullpen pitch, ‘I’ll miss my bullpen sessions with you. But I have a new catcher,’ he said, sending a text message. The camaraderie between comrades was transmitted.  온라인카지노

Originally, pitcher and catcher training starts a little earlier than official spring camp. They worked together a little earlier than that. Since Wainwright can leave team training early while participating in the World Baseball Classic (WBC) held in March, Wilson joined first and trained together. Wainwright expressed his desire to “enjoy everything throughout the upcoming season.”
