The New York Mets eventually released Darin Rough (37).
American media SNY said on the 27th (hereinafter Korean time), “The Mets assigned the rough (DFA). This action was taken because the spring camp failed to show that the sluggish performance after the transfer last year was nothing but groundless.”
Ruff is one of the representative players who moved from the KBO League to the Major Leagues. He played for Samsung from 2017 to 2019 and recorded a batting average of 3.1 3 Lee (467 hits in 1493 bats), 86 home runs and 350 RBIs with an OPS of .968 in 404 games. Afterwards, he signed with San Francisco and succeeded in returning to the major leagues.
Ruff, who recorded a batting average of .239 in 561 major league games (340 hits in 1420 at-bats), 67 homers, and 202 RBIs with an OPS of .761, was transferred to the Mets through a trade last season. 토토사이트
However, Ruff, who hit 11 home runs in San Francisco before transferring last year, failed to hit a single home run after the transfer, recording a batting average of .152 (10 hits in 66) and 7 RBIs, OPS .413 in 28 games.
SNY said, “After Ruff became DFA, outfielder Tim Locastro joined the 26-man roster for the opening of the major leagues. “With the rough out, the Mets can call up Brett Barty and Marc Vientos more quickly.”
Ruff, who was unable to join the exhibition game quickly due to injury, achieved sluggish results with a batting average of 10.67 (5 hits in 30) and 1 RBI OPS of .498 in 11 games. SNY said, “The sluggishness of the rough continued this year, with a batting average that was less than 20% in the demonstration game and no home runs. The last home run that Ruff hit came on July 25, 2022, when he was playing in San Francisco.”
Ruff signed a two-year, $6.25 million extension with San Francisco ahead of the 2022 season. There is a $3.5 million team option ($250,000 buyout) for 2024. The Mets pushed for a trade to save Ruff’s salary, but it didn’t work out and they eventually decided to release him. Therefore, if no team wants the DFA rough, the Mets must pay the entire $3 million annual salary of the rough this season.
