“My wife is the true MVP.”
Toronto Blue Jays Chris Bassett (34) started the game against the Atlanta Braves held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 13th (Korean time) and played a shutout with 2 hits, 2 walks and 8 strikeouts in 9 innings. He led the team to a 3-0 victory, winning his fifth of the season and lowering his season ERA to 3.49.
Bassett, who entered the professional league after being drafted in the 16th round by the Chicago White Sox in 2011, qualified as a free agent (FA) with the New York Mets after last season. He blossomed his career in Oakland and went 15-9 with an earned run average of 3.42 (69 earned runs in 181⅔ innings) in 30 games with the Mets last year. And he signed a three-year, $63 million (about 84.6 billion won) contract with Toronto and transferred.
And he is currently leading the Toronto starting lineup and playing the role of an ace. His shutout on this day was his second shutout in his personal career, and it was the first shutout in 9 innings in about 8 years for the Toronto club. The last shutout was achieved by the retired Mark Burleigh on June 4, 2015. It was only 1176 games.
On this day, after the shutout victory, Bassitt conveyed the behind-the-scenes story of the shutout victory through his SNS. That my daughter was sick last night. As the head of a family, I couldn’t help but care. However, thanks to his wife, Bassett managed to manage his condition and was able to lead to a shutout victory. He naturally thanked his wife.메이저놀이터
“Thanks to all my loved ones, but honestly, my real MVP is my wife [Jessica],” Bassett said. In fact, she said her daughter was very sick yesterday. Her wife knew I had to throw the ball, so she gave me a few hours’ sleep. Instead, her wife stayed up all night. Baseball’s wives are the real MVPs,” she once again thanked her wife.
