Who will come to Seoul among them?
The San Diego Padres announced the list of 32 invited players on the 27th (Korea Standard Time).
Of the 32 players, 15 are new minor league FA players, and 14 have big league experience. In addition, 14 are internal players.
A large number of players at the top of the team’s promising players will join the camp.
Catcher Ethan Salas (17) is one of them. Attracting attention as the biggest fish in an overseas amateur free agent at the time of his contract, he experienced “super-fast over-the-counter” in his first year since joining the club. Debuting in the minor league last year, he played 66 games ranging from the lower-ranked single A to the double A, recording a batting average of 0.248 on-base plus 0.421, nine homers and 41 RBIs.
Jackson Merrill (20) was also listed as an invited player. The first-round draft pick in 2021 played in 114 games in the top-tier singles A and double-A last year, and posted a batting average of 0.277 with 0.326 slugging percentage of 0.444 with 15 homers and 64 RBIs.
Both players are likely to start this season in Triple-A. Depending on their growth rate, they can also see their big league debut in 2024.
In addition, a large number of promising players such as Robbie Snelling (3rd), Drew Thor (6th), Adam Mazur (8th), Graham Foley (12th), and Jacob Masi (13th) joined the team.
In the outfield, where Trent Grisham and Juan Soto’s transfers have left a gap, big league experiences can be seen.
Oscar Mercado (29) is a good example. As a center fielder for the Cleveland Guardians in the 2019 season, he recorded a batting average of 0.237 to 0.289 with a slugging percentage for five seasons in the Major League.
Bryce Johnson and Calvin Mitchell have also played in the big leagues.
San Diego begins its camp schedule with the pitcher and catcher team starting their first training session on Feb. 11, faster than other clubs.
The camp schedule is fast because the opening of the season is also fast. They will play the season opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Seoul for two days on March 20 and 21.
Exhibition games against Team Korea and the LG Twins are also scheduled. Since not all of the main players will play in the two matches, chances are high that not a few players will join as reserve players, in addition to the number of players on the opening roster. There is also a possibility that a considerable number of players will board the flight to Seoul in the latest invitation list. 헤라카지노
