Reporter Kim Joo-hee = The size of the contract for outfielder Kevin Kiermeyer, who joined the Toronto Blue Jays,’Ryu Hyun-jin’s team’, has been revealed.
NBC Sports reported on the 15th (Korean time) that Toronto signed a contract with Kiermeier for 9 million dollars (approximately 11.7 billion won) for one year.
Toronto’s signing of Kiermeier was first known on the 11th. However, the terms of the agreement were not disclosed at the time.
Keir Meyer has been with the Tampa Bay Rays since his big league debut in 2013.
He played 914 career games with a batting average of 0.248, 82 home runs and 316 RBIs. Boasting top-notch outfield defense skills, he also won the Gold Glove three times (2015, 2016, 2019).
However, in the 2022 season, due to injury, he only played 63 games, and his performance was 0.228, 7 home runs and 22 RBIs.
After Tampa Bay refused to exercise a $13 million team option after the 2022 season, Kiermeyer came out to the free agency market.
Toronto, which was looking to reinforce the outfield, decided to prepare for the 2023 season in cooperation with Kiermeier. 안전놀이터
As Kier Meyer, who signed his short-term contract, he should show good performance next season and be recognized for his value once again.
If Kiermeier regains his health, Ryu Hyun-jin on the mound is also expected to receive defensive help.
