Kyle Tucker, who has established himself as the Houston Astros’ ‘signature hitter’ by hitting ’30 homers’ for two consecutive years, lost in the Salary Adjustment Committee.
The US’Houston Chronicle’ said on the 10th (hereinafter Korean time), “Kyle Tucker lost in salary arbitration with the Houston Astros.” thing,” he said.
Tucker entered the professional stage in 2015 after being selected by Houston with the 15th overall pick in the first round of the draft. Tucker went through the minor leagues and first stepped on the major league stage in 2018, but did not show any significant activity. But in 2019, Tucker started to see his talents blossom.
Tucker started to stand out in 2019 with 18 hits, 4 home runs, 11 RBI, 15 runs, 5 steals and a batting average of 0.269 OPS of 0.857 in 22 games. And in 2020, when the shortened season was held, he succeeded in leaping into the starting lineup, recording 56 hits, 9 home runs, 42 RBIs, 33 points, 8 steals, and a batting average of 0.268 OPS and 0.837 in 58 games. 온라인카지노
It is the 2021 season that his skills are in full bloom. Tucker had a career-high season with 149 hits, 30 homers, 92 RBIs, 83 points, 14 stolen bases, a batting average of 0.294 OPS and 0.917 in 140 games, and last year, he played an active role with 140 hits, 30 homers, 107 RBIs, 71 runs, 25 stolen bases and a batting average of 0.257 OPS 0.808 in 150 games, for the first time in his career. He helped Houston win the World Series by being selected as an All-Star and winning the Gold Glove.
Tucker, who hit 30 home runs in two consecutive seasons, asked for $7.5 million in salary negotiations with Houston after the 2022 season ended. However, Houston offered Tucker $5 million. They could not reach an agreement until the deadline for salary negotiations, and eventually decided to listen to the Salary Adjustment Committee’s ruling.
It was Houston who smiled at the salary adjustment hearing. The Salary Adjustment Committee determined that it was appropriate for Tucker to receive $5 million in salary for the 2023 season. However, it is still possible that Tucker will receive more than $5 million. This is because Houston and Tucker are currently discussing an extension contract.
According to ‘MLB.com’, general manager Dana Brown said on the 9th, “We had a conversation with Tucker. Some of the work started before I took over as Houston general manager.” I will talk,” he said.
It remains to be seen if Tucker can earn an annual salary of more than $5 million for the 2023 season through an extended contract with Houston.
