Shohei Ohtani (29, Los Angeles Angels) was not ranked first in the Major League (MLB) starting rankings.
Gerrit Cole (New York Yankees) took first place in the starting pitcher power rankings announced on the 21st (Korean time) by MLB.com, the MLB official website. MLB Dot Cut said, ‘Will this year be the year of Cole?’, ‘Cole won 2nd place twice (2019/2021), 4th place twice (2015/2020), 5th place once (2018) in the Cy Young Award voting. He won all of his first four appearances, posting an earned run average of 0.95 and a batting average of 0.144. Cole started against the Minnesota Twins on the 17th, the previous pitch, and won a shutout with 2 hits and 10 strikeouts in 9 innings.토토사이트
Ohtani, who drew attention, was ranked second. Ohtani went 2-0 with a 0.86 earned run average (6 hits and 2 runs in 21 innings) in his first 4 starts of the season. It was regrettable that he only played 2 innings due to rain in the match against the Boston Red Sox on the 18th, the previous appearance. Still, the quality is top notch. As a hitter, he has a batting average of 0.281 (18 hits in 64 at-bats), 4 homers and 11 RBIs in 17 games. MLB.com praised Ohtani, saying, “Ohtani is showing more dominance than ever as a sweeper.” Sweeper is one of the transformation sliders, and has less vertical (up and down) movement than the slider, but a greater horizontal (left and right) change than the slider. Ohtani’s proprietary ‘weapon’ is generating a lot of buzz.
Luis Castillo (Seattle Marinos) and Shane Mcclanahan (Tampa Bay Rays) took third and fourth place in the starting power rankings. Castillo’s season record was 2 wins, undefeated ERA of 0.73, and Mcclanahan, who appeared in 4 games, started the season fresh with 4 wins and 1.57 ERA. In fifth place, Pablo Lopez (Minnesota Twins), who transferred from the Miami Marlins in the offseason, was named. Lopez’s first four games of the season are 1-1 with an ERA of 1.73.
In addition, Jacob deGrom (Texas Rangers), Dylan Siege (Chicago White Sox), Spencer Strider (Atlanta Braves), Julio Urias (LA Dodgers), and Sonny Gray (Minnesota) were selected as 6th to 10th.
