Reporter Yoon-Jun Ko = Kyle Tucker, the present and future of the Houston Astros, is in constant talks with his team about an extension contract.
‘MLB.com’ reporter Brian McTaggart had an interview with the new general manager Dana Brown on the 8th (Korean time). He asked about contract extensions with some players.
“I had some conversations with Tucker,” Brown said. In fact, it started even before I came. Even after I came, we had important conversations, and we are constantly in touch with the agent to get some review materials.” 토토사이트
Tucker was selected with the 5th overall pick in the 1st round of the 2015 draft. He first stepped on the big league stage in 2018, and has been active as a main outfielder since the 2021 season. He is well known to domestic fans as the younger brother of Preston Tucker, who played for the KIA Tigers in the past.
Starting with the 2021 season, he hit 30 homers in a row and announced that he was a power hitter. Thanks to this great performance, Houston won the World Series championship.
In fact, it’s no wonder Houston are interested in extending Tucker’s contract. The club had already started discussions on extending the contract in May last year. It is known that the difference was not very large at the time. Tucker is currently expected to spend an arbitration season until the 2025 season, and he will become a free agent only after that season is over. Attention is focusing on what choice both sides will make.
On the other hand, it was reported that Brown had a conversation with Christian Javier in addition to Tucker. Javier had an excellent record of 11 wins, 9 losses, 2.54 ERA and 194 strikeouts last year.
