The Chicago Cubs ’decision to sell their stars before the end of trading last season marked a new direction for the franchise in the post-World Cup era.
For many fans, this meant showing patience as well as watching their favorite ex-cubs from the recent past.
A month after the start of the 2022 season, here is the power rating of the former cubs (limited to ten players).
The short porch of the Yankee Stadium in the right field invites Ritz, who on Friday has nine home runs – including a game with three homers – and 21 WRCs.
Ritz may have kicked himself out for not accepting the Cubs ’original four-year offer of $ 60 million or the five-year offer of $ 70 million made before last season. Unpaid years after signing friendly team, a seven-year deal for $ 41 million in 2013, with two years with options that have evolved into nine years, Reese thought he was making up for it in a free agency. He was wrong.
After Fr. “bad gap” with the Cubs, he traveled to New York and eventually signed a two-year, $ 32 million deal to return to the Yankees after the lockout.
“I don’t regret it at the moment,” he told The Athletic during spring training.
He is a star in New York, playing for the best team in the American League, and he missed a bad spring in Chicago. According to his replacement, Frank Schwindel, WAR -0.4 fangraphs.com. Preference, Riza.
Perhaps the best prospect of Cubs in Theo Epstein’s regime, Sis was struck by the White Sox with Eloy Jimenez in 2017 for Jose Quintana, one of the most one-sided deals in Cubs Sox history.
Although Jimenez has failed to deliver on his promise due to injuries, he is a dangerous striker when healthy and only 25 years old. 12.01 Siza strikeouts for 9 innings is the fourth among beginners. His fastball at 96.2 mph is ranked sixth among qualified starters, right after former teammate Carlos Radon (96.4), now in the San Francisco Giants.
In four of Darwish’s five starts for Padres there was a total score of 1.46 ERA and 23 strikeouts. In another start, he allowed nine earned runs more than 1⅔ innings against the Giants. That’s why he has an unimpressive 4.44 ERA, even though he looks like a vintage Darwish from 2020.
However, Darwish’s highlight in 2022 was just getting off the field before the game started last week. Pitcher colleagues Mike Clevinger, Blake Snell, Mackenzie Gore and Sean Monet followed suit and imitated every step of their leader. This is a classic.
If the Cubs paid Chapman after the 2016 championship and didn’t go with what turned into the gates of Wade Davis, Brendan Moreau, Pedro Strop and Craig Kimbrell over the next five years, would they have won at least one more World Series? Does the fact that the Yankees have never won one with Chapman so close make Cub fans feel better?
After giving up nine home runs last season, the 34-year-old Chapman has not scored in 11 games on Friday, realizing all six save options. His seven walks are a cause for concern, but he still reaches an average of 97 miles per hour on his four-stitch fastball, which is great considering his age and career load.
The Dodgers are so loaded with talent that they may not need it closer. In the first 23 games they had only seven chances to save, 6 turning to 16-7. Kimbrell is a perfect 5-on-5 in odds with a 1.35 ERA after returning to the role in which he excelled last season on the North Side before a failed experiment in South Baku as a substitute.
Kimbrell’s 8.1 cleanup for 9 innings is much less than the 15.1 average of the Cubs and White Sox in 2021, but a short spring didn’t seem to affect him, and a relatively light load could be useful in the second half. He is again throwing his fastball 65.2% of the time after using 41% of his curve last season.
Kimbrell returns to Wrigley Field on Saturday, finishing eighth on the all-time rescue list with Joe Nathan.
Before being rejected from adductor strain, Pederson had six home runs, 11 RBIs and 0.946 OPS in 19 games for the Giants. He signed a $ 6 million annual deal to become a platoon player after Cubs president Jed Hoyer signed him last season to replace Kyle Schwarber. Hoer began sales last July Pederson’s transfer to the Atlanta Braveswhere he became a cult favorite in the championship team.
Under Giants manager Gabe Kapler, only three of Pederson’s 61 bats resisted lefties. Bryce Ball, a 6-foot 6 first base / assigned striker that the Weirdos received in exchange for Pederson, has two home runs and 16 RBIs in 88 bats in Double-A Tennessee.
In the first month, batter Phyllis scored nearly 100 points lower than last season with the Boston Red Sox, after being defeated by the Washington Nationals in July. Schwarber scored 0.291 with seven home runs and 18 RBIs in 41 games for the Red Sox, but entered the weekend, scoring 0.195 with seven homers and 16 RBIs in 24 games for the Phills. Surprisingly, Schwarber has only played two games at DH, so manager Joe Girardi believes in his defense.
Despite the lack of contact, Schwarber tirade after deletion against table referee Angel Hernandez on April 24 helped him rise in power rankings.
After becoming a lucky starter in Denver after signing a seven-year deal for $ 182 million, Bryant was homeless in 57 fights before getting on the list of injured with a back injury.
Bryant has been used as a DH only three times in 15 starts, and the rest have performed in the left field, suggesting that his days as a third person from the bottom of the part-time seem to be over. Although this is a small sample size, Bryant has an average of 0.333 in Coors Field and 0.191 on the road. Hoer’s decision to keep the line in line with Bryant’s contractual requirements seems reasonable. Hoyer’s advantage.
As the most popular Cub since 2016 before his exchange last July at the New York Mets, Baes was the only star many expected to be re-signed over the winter. Instead, the Cubs decided to go with Nick Herner without food, and Baes agreed to a six-year, $ 140 million deal with the rebuilding Detroit Tigers.
Like Bryant, Baes demonstrated little power (two 60-bit home runs), and came out early on IL with a right thumb injury. Upon his return Baez finishes 0.195 with .592 OPS. Its total OPS .681 of the Tigers is lower than Herner’s .725 OPS.
Again, Hoer has slept well since switching from Cubs ’favorite stars.
Last year’s MVP World Series with Braves reaches .167 with .575 OPS in Miami. In 2019, Soler made 48 home runs in the league with the Kansas City Royals, while Wade Davis spent just one season behind the Cubs.
Almost 10 years have passed since Soler signed a nine-year deal for $ 30 million to become the next Cubs star. Time flies.
