Choi’s teammate and Pittsburgh Pirates closer could be a trade chip.
“The demand for relievers is always high this time of year, and Pittsburgh could shake up the trade market with one of the best closers in baseball,” MLB.com reported on 25 March.
카지노That would be David Bednar, who had 13 saves and three holds in 2021, 19 saves and four holds last year, and 19 saves in 38 games this season.
According to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, Pittsburgh is reaching out to other teams about Bednar, who was named to the All-Star team for the second straight season with a 1.15 ERA and 1.98 FIP.
However, MLB.com notes that “Bednar, a 28-year-old Pittsburgher, will cost a significant amount of money through 2026” and that “Pittsburgh will need to see what it can get at the peak of his value.”
Bednar is in his fifth year after making his big league debut with the San Diego Padres in 2019. He established himself as a quality closer in a Pittsburgh uniform in 2021. He was named a National League All-Star for the second straight season last year and this year.
His most recent record this season is a 13-game streak of zero earned runs, from last month against the New York Mets on the 12th to last night against the Los Angeles Angels on the 23rd.
