Miami Marlins left-handed pitcher Jesus Luzardo won the salary adjustment.
‘MLB.com’ reporter Mark Finesand said on the 4th (Korean time), “In the salary adjustment hearing, Luzardo won. As a result, Luzardo will receive $2.45 million this season.”
Luzardo, a native of Peru, one of the few in the major leagues, is an immigrant who came to Florida, USA as a child. He was drafted by the Washington Nationals in 2016, and made his debut in an Oakland Athletics uniform in 2019.
He went back and forth between the starter and the bullpen, recording a career record of 13 wins, 18 losses, 4.59 ERA, 3 holds, 2 saves and 293 strikeouts. Last year, he started all 18 games and raised expectations with 4 wins, 7 losses, an ERA of 3.32 and 120 strikeouts.
Luzardo posted a career-high ERA and most innings despite being sidelined by a left forearm injury for a long time. He was rumored to be traded, but he stayed with the team when Pablo Lopez was traded to the Minnesota Twins.
He is expected to form a rotation with Cy Young winners Sandy Alcantara, Trevor Rogers, Edward Cabrera and Johnny Cueto.
Meanwhile, after losing to Luis Araez the day before, Miami also lost a salary adjustment against Luzardo that day. Araez’ salary has been set at $6.1 million. 토토사이트
