San Francisco Giants left-hander Alex Wood was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to back pain, the US sports media’MLB Trade Rumors’ reported on the 5th (Korean time).
The media said, “Wood moved to San Francisco in 2021 on the condition of $3 million a year and made a big contribution to winning the National League Western League.” Wood took the mound 26 times in the first year of his transfer, going 10-4 with a 3.83 ERA.
After impressive performance in the first year of his transfer, he signed a two-year, $25 million (approximately 32.7 billion won) contract with San Francisco. However, his performance was below expectations. He went 8-12 with an ERA of 5.10 in 26 games last year.
He’s been on the mound eight times this season, but has only gone 1-1. His earned run average is 4.80. He was also placed on the injured list in mid-April with a hamstring injury. 메이저놀이터
With Wood on the injured list, right-hander Tristan Beck got a chance to make a big league call-up. Beck made his big league debut this season and made one save in 10 games. His ERA was 4.10.
The media reported, “It has not yet been decided whether Beck will join the starting lineup in place of Wood or whether Sean Manea, who was demoted to the kicking line, will get a starting opportunity.”
