Washington, 8-year contract extension with Scherzer… $50 million guaranteed

The Washington Nationals signed an eight-year contract extension with catcher Kaybert Lewis (25). 

Washington Post reporter Barry Sbruga reported on the 11th (Korean time) that Washington had agreed to an eight-year contract extension with Lewis guaranteeing $50 million. It is a condition that Washington has two club options. 

Luis, a Venezuelan-born switch hitter, signed an international amateur contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers in July 2014. He went through a growing process as a Dodgers catcher prospect with Will Smith, and on August 17, 2020, against the Los Angeles Angels, he became the seventh rookie in Dodgers history to hit a home run in his first at-bat in his debut.  카지노

However, after Smith had already established himself as the Dodgers’ main catcher, Lewis was used as a trade card. At the end of July 2021, Washington received four prospects on the condition of sending Cy Young Young pitcher Max Scherzer and All-Star shortstop Trey Turner to the Dodgers, and one of them was Lewis. 

Lewis, who got a chance as the starting catcher for the opening game in Washington last year, had a hiatus due to an injury sustained by his groin from a foul ball, but posted decent results with a batting average of .251 (99 hits in 394), 7 homers, 36 RBIs, and an OPS of .673 in 112 games. . 

In terms of his defense, his framing is underrated, but his blocking ability is stable and his ability to stop stealing is improving. He hasn’t shown much yet, but he was recognized for his potential as a quality catcher and won an eight-year contract extension.
