Despite high expectations, Nick Senzel (28, Cincinnati Reds), who was below average in batting, showed his true value.
The Major League Secretariat announced on the 2nd (Korean time) that Senzel was selected as the National League Player of the Week. This is the first honor in my personal career.
Senzel recorded a batting average of 0.476, 2 homers, 9 RBIs, 8 runs, 10 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.560 and an OPS of 1.370 in 6 games over the past week.
In particular, Senzel hit a walk-off home run in the 9th inning against the Texas Rangers on the 27th of last month, leading the team to a three-game winning streak. Cincinnati went 5-1 last week.
Also, from the 26th of last month to the 1st of last month, he recorded multi-hits in 4 out of 5 games. As a result, the batting performance rose vertically.스포츠토토
Senzel, who is in his 5th year in the major leagues, is a super-special prospect who was selected twice overall in the first round by Cincinnati in the 2016 rookie draft.
However, Senzel did not live up to expectations, recording a batting average of 0.240, an on-base percentage of 0.303 and an OPS of 0.663 for four seasons until last year. He also suffered numerous injuries.
Now, Senzel, who must show a different side of himself, was selected as the National League Player of the Week at an important point and made a stepping stone for a reversal.
