Stephen Strasburg 36, Washington Nationals, who left the worst contract in the history of the U.S. Major League Baseball MLB, will officially retire.

AP and others reported on the 7th that Strasburg, the 2019 World Series MVP whose career was suspended due to injury, has officially announced his retirement.

Strasburg’s retirement was a foregone conclusion. He did not take the mound in a single game last year, nor did he participate in his team’s spring training this year.

Local media reported in September last year that Strasburg would hold a retirement press conference. However, the conference was canceled due to the issue of payment of 105 million U.S. dollars in remaining annual salary between the Washington club and Strasburg. The club changed its previous position to pay all the remaining annual salary.

Seven months later, the two sides reportedly reached an agreement. According to the Washington Post, Strasburg agreed to suspend some of the remaining salaries. The exact terms are unknown, with Strasburg eventually receiving all of her remaining salaries.

A Washington team spokesman said, “The team will not provide a comment until Strasburg makes the announcement himself.”

Strasburg was once called a “monster pitcher” and dominated the MLB. In 2010, he played for Washington D.C. and won the All-Star Game three times, and was included in the top 10 Cy Young Awards three times.

The most spectacular season was 2019. He led his team to the top by winning 18 wins six losses in the regular season and two wins in the World Series. He rose to stardom by winning the World Series MVP.

As a result, Washington gave Ace a 7-year, $245 million about 331.48 billion won large contract.

Since then, however, Strasburg has completely disappeared from expectations. In 2020, the first year of his contract, he had wrist surgery, and played in only two games one loss, five games one win and two losses due to shoulder injury in 2021 and one game one loss due to elbow problems in 2022. 토토사이트 순위

Last year and this year, he did not appear in any games. After signing the contract, he recorded one win and four losses with a 6.89 ERA in 31 ⅓ innings in eight games. Yahoo Sports said there could be no worse contract in baseball history than this one.

The overall big league performance is 113 wins and 62 losses with a 3.24 ERA in 247 games.
