Seattle, 2020 AL Rookie of the Year Lewis Trade…
The Seattle Mariners used Kyle Lewis (27), the 2020 AL Rookie of the Year, as a trade card.
MLB’s official website MLB Dotcom said on the 18th (Korea Standard Time) that Seattle agreed to send Lewis to the Arizona Diamondbacks and receive catcher and outfielder Cooper Hummel (28).
Lewis, the nominee for the first round of the 2016 rookie draft, emerged as a rising star after receiving the 2020 AL Rookie of the Year award. However, he has suffered from minor injuries in the last two seasons and has played less games. He played only 36 games in 2021 and 18 games this season. The appearance of “monster rookie” Julio Rodriguez has narrowed the team’s position.
Hummel was named to the Milwaukee Brewers in the 18th round in the 2016 rookie draft. In July last year, Edardo moved to Arizona during the Escobar trade and made his big league debut this season. He played in 66 games this season, batting .176 (31 hits in 176 at-bats), three home runs, and 17 RBIs. Its strength is its versatility as it can play catchers, outfielders, first baseman, and third baseman.
