Someone’s misfortune, someone’s luck?

It may be a harsh word, but it’s a word that can be used in a place where you have to compete for a limited seat. This is especially true in the American professional baseball Major League (MLB), where only a few players survive.

The Milwaukee Brewers called infielder Andrew Monasterio (25), who played for Triple-A, to the 40-man roster today (28th) in our time and called up to the big leagues.

As starting shortstop Willy Adames (27) was moved to the 7-day disabled list (IL) due to an unexpected injury, a player was needed to fill the vacant spot for Adames during this period, and Monasterio, who was showing good performance in Triple A, was needed. you’ve chosen Monasterio’s big-league debut will be his first in nine years since March 2014 when he turned pro.

Monasterio’s move to the big leagues was not expected by most. Because Adames’ injury was such an absurd situation.

Adames was hit in the head by a foul ball while in the dugout against the San Francisco Giants the previous day. Coincidentally, teammate Brian Anderson’s batted ball went to Adames. Fortunately, there were no fractures or other injuries, but he needed some rest, so Milwaukee moved Adames to the IL on the 7th.

In fact, Milwaukee’s shortstop position includes Bryce Turang (23), one of the team’s top prospects, and Owen Miller (26) as backups, so it was unknown whether Monasterio would be called up. However, Milwaukee showed good results such as a batting average of 0.271 and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.810 in Triple A this year, and made a decision to raise Monasterio, where second base, third base, and shortstop are all possible.토토사이트

Monasterio, who signed a minor contract with the Chicago Cubs in 2014, later signed with the Washington Nationals. After wandering around the Cleveland Indians, he moved to Milwaukee in November 2021, and eventually made a big league call-up after 9 years.

Adam McCulby, a dedicated Milwaukee reporter, reported that “Monasterio, upon hearing of his call-up, immediately called his mother and sister, and together we shed tears.”

Milwaukee made a designation assignment for veteran left-hander Alex Claudio, 31, to make room for Monasterio on the 40-man roster. Monasterio’s luck turned out to be Claudio’s misfortune.
