Ohtani in the world is not NO.1… Harder to conquer than MVP? 433.5 billion won ace presence
Ohtani Shohei (LA Angels) of the world is not NO.1? Is there anything more difficult than MVP?메이저놀이터
It’s true. Ohtani is likely to win the American League MVP for the first time in two years this year. However, even though the second MVP of his life is certain, this is an atmosphere that is more difficult to conquer. It’s a Cy picture. Ohtani is 10-5 with a 3.17 ERA in 22 games this season.
He pitched 130.2 innings, posting a batting average of 0.185 and a WHIP of 1.06. He struck out 165 catches. He is 11th in the American League in earned run average, 33rd in most innings, tied for 7th in strikeouts, and 8th in WHIP. Only the hit rate is at least 1st in the American League. Overall, there are numbers and distance to overwhelm the American League.
He also had difficulty pitching this season due to fingernail and finger cramps. Perhaps for this reason, there have been reports from foreign media that he will skip one recent appearance. Looking at the monthly results, it is surprisingly uneven. He had an average ERA of 4.06 with 1 win and 1 loss in 5 games in May, and an average ERA of 4.97 with 2 wins and 2 losses in 4 games in July.
Of course, on July 28th, against the Detroit Tigers, he won a shutout with 9 innings, 1 hit, 8 strikeouts, 3 walks and no runs, and is overwhelming in 2 games in August. In 10 innings he played, he had 6 hits, 9 strikeouts and 4 walks. However, it seems difficult to overturn competitors at once.
On the 15th (Korean time), MLB.com announced the results of the Cy Young Award mock voting by a group of experts, and announced that Ohtani was third in the American League. It only got 2 first place votes. “Angels first starter Ohtani pitched like an ace. “I’m worried about the news that he will skip Wednesday’s start due to arm fatigue, but the shutout against Detroit reminded me of what he can do on the mound.”
As a result of the MLB.com mock vote, the American League Cy Young Award winner is Gerrit Cole (New York Yankees), who boasts a 9-year, $324 million (approximately 433.5 billion won) contract. In 25 games this season, Cole has an average ERA of 2.76 with 10 wins and 3 losses, 166 strikeouts in 156.1 innings, a WHIP of 1.05, and a batting average of 0.214.
He is seventh in the American League in wins, but second in earned run average, first in innings pitched, third in strikeouts, fifth in WHIP, and fourth in batting average. Excluding the win, most of them are in the top 5. MLB.com experts gave Cole a whopping 38 first-place votes. It’s overwhelming.
MLB.com said, “Cole has the lowest strikeout rate since 2017, but overall he is strong. He has finished in the top five five times during that time, but has never won a Cy Young award. If he maintains his current grades, that will change.”
The runner-up in the mock voting for the American League Cy Young Award is Kevin Gaussman (Toronto Blue Jays). He received 6 first place votes. Fourth place is Nation Eovaldi (Texas Rangers), and fifth place is Framber Valdez (Houston Astros). Jack Gallen (Arizona Diamondbacks) is the No. 1 player in the National League Cy Young contest. Received 14 first place votes.
