Pittsburgh Downgrades catcher minor from No. 1 overall with a batting average of 0.162

The Pittsburgh Pirates pulled out a knife.

Pittsburgh announced on the 4th (Korea time) that it will send catcher Henry Davis (24) to Triple-A Indianapolis ahead of a home game against the Colorado Rockies.

Davis, the No. 1 overall draft pick in 2021, made his big league debut last season.

If he played mostly right field last year, he started this season as a catcher, his original position.

As a catcher, he should also consider the burden of defense, but his appearance at the plate was difficult to explain.

He entered the batter’s box 83 times in 23 games, recording a batting average of 0.162 on-base percentage of 0.280 on-base percentage of 0.206, and four RBIs, 11 walks, and 29 strikeouts without a home run.

Joey Bart, who joined during the season, narrowed his position as he showed a relatively better performance with a batting average of 0.219 on-base percentage of 0.359 on-base percentage of 0.531 three homers and eight RBIs in 12 games. 메이저사이트

On top of that, Yasmani Grandal, who started the season on the injured list due to plantar fasciitis, eventually lost his position.

Pittsburgh manager Derek Shelton said in an interview with local media such as “93.7 The Fan” that “the most important thing is to make adjustments in the attack,” adding that changes are needed in the attack.

Meanwhile, Grandal, who joined Davis on the day, played in nine games for Triple-A Indianapolis, recording two doubles, one home run and 11 RBIs in 35 at-bats (0.257 batting average).
