Boras also failed FA Mia. A terrible year-long hiatus ended. Being an All-Star Again
“Super Agent” Scott Boras sometimes fails. An example is All-Star outfielder Michael Conforto (30), who spent a year as a FA lost player without his team last year.
Conforto, a right-handed outfielder, is a promising player who was nominated by the New York Mets as the 10th overall pick in the first round in the 2014 draft and has established himself as a key hitter since his major league debut in 2015. Until 2021, he was considered an outfielder who served as both offense and defense, with a batting average of .255 in 757 games in seven seasons, 650 hits, 132 home runs, and 596 RBIs 토토
In 2021, his performance fell to .232 batting average, 94 hits, 14 home runs, 55 RBIs, and OPS.729, but his long-hitting power was verified with 27 home runs, 28 and 33 in 2017-2019. Even in the 2020 shortening season, he had an impressive performance with a batting average of .322, nine home runs and 31 RBIs in 54 games. After the season, the Mets offered an extension of more than $100 million, but refused.
Conforto, who also rejected the Mets’ $18.4 million qualifying offer (QO) a year after the 2021 season, came to the FA market curiously. He sought a large contract with Boras on his back with a multi-year contract, but the market situation changed rapidly in the aftermath of the Major League job closure. To make matters worse, he injured his right shoulder during New Year’s personal training in January 2022.
Even after the closure of the workplace in March and the season opened, no team was found. At the opening of April, he underwent surgery on his right shoulder and rehabilitated and quickly became a forgotten existence. After the draft in July, he spent the entire year without his team as he could not find a team even after the FA compensation rights disappeared. He rehabilitated himself in Arizona.
Conphoto, who had a one-year gap but was successfully rehabilitated, found a new team. He signed a two-year, $36 million FA contract with the San Francisco Giants. The contract was officially completed after completing a physical examination on the 7th (Korea Standard Time). On the 11th, he also expressed his feelings about the contract through video interviews with local media such as the San Francisco Chronicle 토토추천
Conforto said of the past year, “It’s been tough. No one would want to miss the season. “It wasn’t an ideal situation, and I was heartbroken,” he said adding, “But the perspective of watching baseball has been renewed.” It was an opportunity to take a step back and look back on my entire career. I tried to find as bright a hope as possible,” he said.
Konphoto, who was selected as the first All-Star in 2017, said, “I will do everything I can to become an All-Star again. I don’t think I’ve fully scratched my potential yet. “I couldn’t be happier to start my career again with San Francisco,” he said, expressing his willingness to make a comeback in the new team.
