He has an annual salary of 26.9 billion won, but his batting average is 65 percent···· ‘From MVP’ Abreu fell, excluding the main players

American League MVP-turned slugger Jose Abreu (37) of the Houston Astros has been struggling from a severe slump this season. As he failed to overcome his shocking batting average below 100%, he has been excluded from the starting lineup.

At an away game against the Chicago Cubs on Saturday, Abreu played in the bottom of the eighth inning when his team was losing 2-4. He couldn’t even stand at bat, and had to watch his team lose 3-4.

Abreu had just four hits in 68 at-bats (62 times at bat) in 20 games in the league this season. He has a batting average of 65 percent, an RBI without a home run, an on-base percentage of 0.132 with an OPS of 0.213.

“MLB Trade Lumus” said on the same day, “No other batter has started with a severe slump like Abreu this season.”

Abreu, who defected from Cuba, has been a slugger representing the Major League since he was unanimously named the Rookie of the Year in 2014. In 2020, when only 60 games were played in the shortened season due to COVID-19, he was named the MVP of the American League with a batting average of 317, 19 home runs, and an OPS of 0.987.

After finishing the 2022 season in his mid-30s, he signed a three-year contract worth 58.5 million dollars. With an annual salary of 19.5 million dollars this year, he is less than 100 percent. 메이저놀이터

Abreu’s position in the team is also shrinking. “We hope Abreu will survive and give him some time to play, but if he remains sluggish, he will have to make some decisions,” Houston manager Dana Brown said in an interview with the Houston Chronicle recently. There are many local voices calling for Abreu to be released or traded and a young minor league prospect should be appointed.
