The New York Mets, whose recruitment of Carlos Correa (31) was canceled due to a failure to pass the physical examination, became the best team in the offseason.
On the 13th (Korean time), MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, selected and announced 10 teams that did well in reinforcing their strength this winter.
The team with the best reinforcement was the New York Mets. First, the New York Mets signed Justin Verlander to fill the vacancy left by Jacob deGrom.
Then, Senga Kodai was recruited from Nippon Professional Baseball, and Jose Quintana was brought in. As a result, the starting mound was evaluated as greatly improved.
In particular, the top starting lineup led by Verlander and Max Scherzer is evaluated as the best in the major leagues. This is the reason why it is evaluated as the best power reinforcement despite the unsuccessful recruitment of Corea. 스포츠토토
