With the LA Angels firmly determined 메이저놀이터 not to trade Shohei Otani, the 39th home run exploded.
Otani started the 2023 Major League Toronto Blue Jays away match at Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on the 29th (Korea Standard Time) and shot a home run in his first at-bat.
Recently, Otani was the hottest man in Major League Baseball. It was because of the trade rumor. The Angels drew the line that Otani had no trade when he recorded a winning percentage of more than 50% ahead of the All-Star break. However, he reversed his position, saying he would receive inquiries about Otani’s trade as a series of injuries and performance began to decline.
As the Angels changed their stance, news related to Otani’s trade began to pour out in the Major League at one time. However, after the start of the second half, the Angels changed their position again when they returned with a winning rate of more than 50%. Rather than trading Otani, he expressed his intention to strengthen his power and aim to advance to the postseason, and is strengthening his power by recruiting Lucas Giolito through trade.
With the Angels changing their mind, Ohtani responded with a home run. In his first at-bat in the first inning, Otani held out his bat without hesitation as Toronto’s “ace” Kevin Gaussman’s 93.4-mile (about 150km) four-seam fastball was tilted to the middle of the strike zone. Ohtani’s hit was so good that I could feel that it was a home run at the same time as he left the bat.
Ohtani’s ball extended at a speed of 103.5 miles (about 166.6 kilometers), flew 397 feet (about 121 meters) and led to a solo home run over the right fence. With his 39th home run of the season, he has only one left in the 40th home run. As a result, Ohtani will draw a 61 home run pace, approaching Aaron Judge’s 62 home runs, the record for the most home runs in the American League season.
