Luczynski’s position is getting stronger… OAK’s only regular innings pitcher trade

The Major League Baseball (MLB) Oakland Athletics traded the team’s most inning pitcher last year. Thanks to this, Drew Luchinski (35) is expected to have more opportunities to start.

On the 27th,, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, reported that “Oakland traded left-handed pitcher Cole Irvine (29) to the Baltimore Orioles.” Oakland, which gave away Irvin and minor league pitcher Kyle Burbitsky (25), brought in shortstop prospect Darrell Erneiz (22).

Irvin, who made his big league debut in Philadelphia in 2019, moved to Oakland in the 2021 season. He pitched 181 innings last year, going 9-13 with an earned run average of 3.98. He became the only player on the team to break through the regulation innings (162 innings).

Irvin’s transfer is expected to increase the number of appearances for Luchinski, who is from the KBO, next season. At the end of last year, he signed a contract with Oakland for up to 8 million dollars (approximately 9.8 billion won) for 1+1 years.온라인바카라

Luczynski, who played in the major leagues until 2018, signed a contract with the NC Dinos ahead of the 2019 season. He pitched in 121 games for four years in Korea, recording 53 wins and 36 losses with an ERA of 3.06. Last year, he also proved his skills by recording his first two-point average ERA (2.97), the most innings (193⅔ innings), and the most strikeouts (194) in his Korean stage.

According to local reports in the United States, Luczynski has received interest from the St. Louis Cardinals and San Diego Padres. However, he chose Oakland over two teams with good starters. Oakland, the bottom-most team in the American League West last year, especially the starting staff did not play their part. This is because they sold all of Frankie Montas (New York Yankees), Sean Mynaya (San Francisco), and Chris Bassett (Toronto), who had kept the team for years.

As a result, Luchinski was highly likely to be in the opening starting rotation. Japanese pitcher Shintaro Fujinami (29) joined, but the local media still writes down Luczynski in the starting position. As he went to Irvin, his position became more solid.
