Miami continues to talk with free agent Gurriel.. American media “likely to sign a minor contract”

Miami is continuing the conversation with Gurriel.

The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal said on March 8 (Korean time) that the Miami Marlins are continuing talks with free agent Julieski Gurriel.

Gurriel, who became a free agent at the Houston Astros, has not been able to find a team until now, when spring camp is in full swing. Gurriel played a big role in last year’s postseason and contributed to Houston’s World Series championship, but in the regular season, he recorded .242/.288/.360, 8 home runs, 53 RBIs and 8 stolen bases in 146 games.

Elder Gurriel, born in 1984, is already 38 years old. He turns 39 this coming June. Even if his performance declines, he is the age at which there is nothing strange about it.

“If the deal does, it will be a minor league deal,” Rosenthal predicted. It is said that it is not easy to win a major league contract as he was sluggish last year and is old.

Miami has been in contact with Gurriel since the beginning of the year. Early in the offseason, he attempted to sign veteran Justin Turner as a free agent, but Turner went to the Boston Red Sox. Miami tried to recruit Gurriel, with general manager Kim Ng meeting Gurriel in person in January, but the contract was not concluded.

It is known that Gurriel has also contacted the Houston and Minnesota Twins, which are the original clubs, but there was no result. It looks like Gurriel, who couldn’t find a team until March, is eventually heading to Miami. 더블유 토토

Attention is focusing on whether Gurriel will join the Miami camp or whether he will be revived as a big leaguer in Miami.

Meanwhile, Gurriel, who was the best star in Cuban baseball, debuted on the major league stage in 2016 at the age of 32. He played seven seasons with Houston and appeared in 801 career games, hitting .284/.328/.448 with 94 home runs, 435 RBIs and 23 stolen bases. In the 2021 season, he also won the American League first base Gold Glove.
