St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Miles Mycholas (35) has extended his contract.
The Cardinals announced on the 25th (Korean time) that they had agreed to a two-year contract extension with Michaels.
Michaelas, who was facing the final year of a four-year, $68 million contract, will be able to wear a Cardinals uniform through the 2025 season with this contract extension.
According to local media, the size of the contract is 2 years and 40 million dollars (52 billion won). A contract fee of $5 million is included, and $3 million is added to the salary for the 2023 season, which is an existing contract, and $16 million is received each for the 2024 and 2025 seasons.
Michaelas, who played in Nippon Professional Baseball from 2015 to 2017, signed a contract with St. Louis ahead of the 2018 season.
He went 41-34 with a 3.46 earned run average in 106 appearances over four seasons with St. Louis. He extended his contract once in the middle.
He pitched 202 1/3 innings in 33 games in the 2022 season, going 12-13 with a 3.29 earned run average. He was selected as an All-Star for the second time after 2018 and enjoyed his heyday. 안전놀이터
Cardinals President John Mozeliak said, “Mycholas has risen to the top pitching position in baseball today and has consistently made a presence in the starting rotation and inside the clubhouse.”
Recently, he participated as a representative of the United States in the World Baseball Classic (WBC), and contributed to the team’s advancement to the final by recording 6 scoreless innings in two appearances.
On the same day that his contract extension was announced, the start for the opening game of the 2023 season was also confirmed. He will start the season opener against the Toronto Blue Jays in place of Adam Wainwright, who is on the injured list.
