Reporter Yoon-Jun Ko = Luke Williams, who was imprinted on fans by hitting a home run to end the reverse in the first starting game of the 2021 season, wears the LA Dodgers uniform once again.
The Dodgers said on the official website on the 4th (Korean time), “The club signed a minor league contract with infielder Williams. He was invited to spring camp.”
Williams was nominated by the Philadelphia Phillies in 2015 and stepped on the big league stage for the first time in 2021. He got his first chance in his June start, hitting a come-from-behind walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth.
At that time, it decorated the main page of the Major League homepage and left a great impression on the fans. Williams was also named the first Philadelphia player to hit a walk-off home run in his debut game as a start. 메이저사이트
But that home run was his last in Philadelphia, and he was traded to the San Francisco Giants before the start of the 2022 season. In the new club, it was difficult to take a seat, and in the end, the nomination was processed.
He was later traded to the Miami Marlins and headed to the Dodgers. He could not step on the big league stage, and the Dodgers sent him as a free agent. However, the club reached out once again and continued to accompany him.
Williams recorded a career batting average of 0.240, 2 homers, 12 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.615, and is a ‘super utility’ resource that can digest all positions except catcher and pitcher. He is expected to compete for a major league re-entry out of spring training alongside Jason Hayward, Bradley Zimmer and Stephen Dugger.
In addition to Williams, a number of new players joined the team with minor league contracts, including Youthniel Diaz, Robbie Erlin, and Nick Nastrini.
