Right-handed pitcher Daniel Ponce De Leon (31) is heading to Chicago.
John Heyman of the New York Post reported on personal social media (SNS) on the 13th (Korean time) that Ponce de Leon has signed a minor league contract with the Chicago White Sox. Ponce de Leon will prepare for a big league call-up as a starting pitcher from minor league Triple-A.
Ponce de Leon, who was released as a free agent (FA) from the Detroit Tigers in November last year, was interested in a domestic club, but the actual contract was not concluded. After that, his future was marked with a question mark, and he managed to wear a White Sox uniform after the season opener.토토사이트
Ponce de Leon, who debuted in 2018, has a career record of 3 wins, 8 losses, 3 saves and an ERA of 4.33. His entire major league (MLB) career was spent with the St. Louis Cardinals. He pitched in 13 games (8 starting games) in 2019, recording an average ERA of 3.70 with 1 win and 2 losses, which is a career high. He is a swing man who goes back and forth between the starter and the bullpen, and he is used in a variety of ways, but his control is unstable. Last year, he played for the Seattle Mariners, Washington Nationals and Detroit’s three Triple-A teams, making 26 starts, going 9-11 with a 6.67 ERA.
American Yahoo Sports also mentioned the possibility of the White Sox using Ponce de Leon as a bullpen. The White Sox currently have a number of bullpen resources, including Liam Hendricks and Joe Kelly, on the injured list (IL). Yahoo Sports said, “Ponce de Leon envisions various types of pitches, but most of them are fastballs (73.9%).” “His fastball reaches 93 miles (149.7km/h), and he throws a changeup, cut fastball, and curve occasionally.”
