Jurickson Profar (30) signed a one-year contract with the Colorado Rockies.
American media ESPN announced on the 19th스포츠토토 (local time) that “Profar has signed a one-year, $7.75 million contract with Colorado.” It is known that the contract includes a $1 million performance bonus option for 400 or more at-bats.
Pro Par signed with the Texas Rangers in 2009 in an international amateur deal and made his major debut three years later. He moved to the Oakland Athletics seven years later, but he was traded to the San Diego Padres after a poor 2019 season.
Afterwards, he agreed to a three-year, $21 million contract with San Diego in 2021, but gave up the $7.5 million player option last winter and chose free agency. However, he offered contracts worth more than $10 million to clubs that were interested in him, but all were turned down, and he couldn’t find a team even when spring training began.
In the end, he gave up his greed and wore a Colorado uniform. The reason why Colorado caught him seems to be to fill the void of infielder Brendan Rodgers (26), who is expected to miss the entire season due to a left shoulder injury.
Local fans are paying attention to how much Propar’s utility player ability will shine in Colorado.
