Was the title ‘Home Run King’ a mirage… Ha-seong Kim’s former colleague’s ‘fall’, MIL ‘waiting for release’

In the 2020 season, when the shortened season was held, Luke Voit is falling endlessly after winning the home run king title. This time, he was nominated by the Milwaukee Brewers (DFA).

The Milwaukee Brewers took Luke Voit by DFA on the 30th (Korean time). After being removed from the 40-man roster,스포츠토토 Voight was placed on the waiting list for release.

Voight made his debut with the St. Louis Cardinals in 2017 and wore a New York Yankees uniform in 2018. In 47 games in the 2018 season with St. Louis and Yankees, Voit succeeded in becoming a starting player with 15 home runs, a batting average of 0.322 OPS and 1.069.

He also spent his ‘career high’ season with the Yankees. Voight played 56 games in 2020, when the season was shortened due to Corona 19, and swung a bat with 59 hits, 22 homers, 52 RBIs, a batting average of 0.277 OPS and 0.948. At that time, Voight even grabbed the title of “Home Run King” in the American League with 22 homers. But after that, he began to fall rapidly.

Voit was sluggish with 11 homers and a batting average of 0.239 in the 2021 season, and before the 2022 season, he transferred to the San Diego Padres through a trade and ate a pot of rice with Ha-seong Kim. However, he did not play a full season in San Diego and was traded to the Washington Nationals before being released as a non-tender, and transferred to Milwaukee last winter.

Voight signed a minor league contract at the time he moved to Milwaukee. And he decided to leave the team through an opt-out at the end of spring camp, but returned to Milwaukee just before the opening. However, while he was having the worst season in his career with a batting average of 0.211 OPS and 0.548 in 22 games this year without a home run, he was eventually put on the verge of being released.

Voit, who has been DFA in Milwaukee, can be transferred for a week if another club wants to recruit him. However, if there is no club expressing an intention to recruit him, he can be released through the waiver procedure or remain in the affiliated minor league. It is Voit who is falling endlessly after winning the home run title.
