The KBO batting average was 0.114… Return to ML in place of the second Pujols

Taylor Motor (34, St. Louis Cardinals), who played for Kiwoom Heroes in the KBO League in the 2020 season, returned to the major leagues in place of Jordan Walker (21), the “second Albert Pujols”.

Local media such as ESPN, a sports media outlet, reported on the 27th (Korean time) the news of Motor’s major league call-up.

Motor started the season as a foreign hitter for Kiwoom at the time of the 2020 season. However, he could hardly find his pace and was released after posting a batting average of 0.114 (4 hits in 35 at-bats), 1 home run and 3 RBIs in 10 games.

The motor that kept knocking on the door of the major leagues. After joining St. Louis’ opening entry this season, he recorded a batting average of 0.222 (4 hits in 18 at-bats) and 1 RBI, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.633 in 7 games. Later, after Paul Deyong returned from injury, he received a DFA (designated transfer player) action on the 24th, but returned to the major leagues about 3 days later. Motor returns to the majors, replacing Walker.

Walker is one of the top prospects in St. Louis. From his major league debut, this year’s opener (against the Toronto Blue Jays on the 31st of last month), he stood out by hitting in 12 consecutive games. During his trial period and early regular season, he continued to perform outstandingly and received a lot of attention as ‘the second Pujols’. ㅋㅋㅋ벳

However, Walker is feeling the spiciness of the major leagues over time. After his hitting streak stopped, he stagnated with a batting average of 0.192 (5 hits in 26 at-bats) in 8 games. The team plans to send Walker to Triple-A in the minor leagues to undergo an adjustment period for his growth.

Motor continued his major league career by replacing the second Pujols Walker. Fans are paying attention to what kind of performance he will show in the big leagues.
