St. Louis is in last place… Kwang-Hyun Kim gave up and recruited pitcher ‘Boom Mang’ ERA 6.39

The sluggishness of the St. Louis Cardinals, the ‘prestigious team’ representing the major leagues, is not unusual. 

St. Louis lost 1-5 against the Los Angeles Angels on the 3rd (Korean time). St. Louis, which recently fell into a swamp of four consecutive losses, recorded a season record of 10 wins and 20 losses, and the winning rate fell to 303.3. Finished in 5th place in the Central Division of the National League. The decline is accelerating with 1 win and 7 losses in the last 8 games. It is also the only team without a winning series after the opening. 

Left-hander Steven Matz (32), who started this day, gave up the game early, giving up 4 points from the first inning. After one out, Matz allowed the first run on a walk and consecutive hits before being hit by a three-run home run by Taylor Ward. He endured until the 5th inning, but lost the game with 6 hits (1 home run), 2 walks, 4 strikeouts and 4 runs in 5 innings. 

Until this day, Matsu is sluggish with an average ERA of 6.39, holding only 4 losses without a win in 6 games of the season. He has never played more than 6 innings in a game. He walked 4.4 per 9 innings, the most since his debut, and allowed a home run in 5 of 6 games. St. Louis lost all six games Matz started. 

After being traded to the Toronto Blue Jays in 2021, Matz, who was a New York Mets prospect and was not as big as expected, won 14 wins (7 losses), the most for an individual, and played an active part with an ERA of 3.82. Matz, who came out of the free agent market, was acquired by St. Louis for four years and $44 million. At the time, left-handed pitcher Kim Gwang-hyeon (SSG) was released as a free agent, but St. Louis, who were not active in renewing the contract, announced their breakup by signing left-hander Mats.  메이저사이트

However, Mats performed sluggishly last year, the first year of transfer, with an average ERA of 5.25 with 5 wins, 3 losses and 2 holds in 15 games (10 starts). He only pitched 48 innings due to shoulder and knee injuries. Matz, who has been sluggish again this year, the second year of his contract, is becoming a FA failure with a 5-7 ERA of 5.70 in 21 games (79 innings) in St. Louis for two years.
