I wasn’t happy with Max Scherzer. The Texas Rangers once again moved aggressively.
The Texas club announced on the 31st 안전놀이터 (Korea Standard Time) that it had traded with the St. Louis Cardinals and recruited left-handed pitcher Jordan Montgomery (31) and right-handed pitcher Chris Stratton (33). Montgomery started 21 games this season with a 6-9 ERA and a 3.42 ERA. It was highly popular among the remaining starting resources in the trade market, and Texas, which recruited Scherzer as a trade the previous day, boldly pressed the recruitment button.
Texas is likely to advance to the postseason (PS) as it ranks first in the American League West (60 wins and 45 losses). However, he actively moved in the trade market as the gap with the Houston Astros (59 wins and 47 losses), the second-ranked player in the district, was not much with 1.5 games. Stratton pitched in 42 games this season, recording one win, one loss, four holds, one save, and a 4.36 ERA.

Both Montgomery and Stratton are scheduled to be released as free agents after the season, which could be a bit of an unreasonable investment, but they moved actively. Texas will receive an additional portion of its international contract bonus from St. Louis. According to the Dallas Morning News, a Texas-based media outlet, the recruitment of St. Louis closer Jordan Hicks was also considered, but Hicks was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays.
St. Louis, who lost both the starting and bullpen, will receive left-handed bullpen John King (29), right-handed pitcher T.K. Robbie (22), and infielder Thomas Seo Jessi (21).
King, who is in his fourth year in the big league, pitched in 15 games of the season as a professional bullpen with a 5.79 ERA. Robbie is a third-round pick in the 2020 rookie draft. He has struggled somewhat this season with a two – three – loss ERA in the minor league double a. It was ranked 11th in the Texas promising rankings selected by MLB Dotcom, the official website of Major League Baseball. In last year’s top single A, Seo made a remarkable performance with a batting average of 0.308 with 14 home runs and 61 RBIs. He also batted .314 with 15 home runs and 78 RBIs in Double A this season. He was ranked 14th in the MLB Dotcom Texas Promising Rankings.
