Otani loaded $500 million?…US statistics site forecast, ’36 home runs, 13 wins, 193K, WAR 7.6′
Shohei Ohtani (23) once again predicted that the season of perfect pitching and hitting will be the original one ahead of the free agent (FA). However, it is predicted that it will fall slightly from last year’s performance.
The U.S. baseball statistics site ‘Pangraph’ predicted the performance of LA Angels players in 2023 on the 4th (Korea Standard Time). The “ZiPS” prediction system devised by baseball statistician Dan Zimborowski predicts the performance of major league players every year.
Otani once again predicted that he would reign as the best player on the team with both pitching and hitting. He batted .266 (141 hits in 542 at-bats) at 623 at-bats, 36 home runs, 88 RBIs, 15 steals, on-base percentage of .352, and slugging percentage.It is expected that the team will have a record of 530, OPS.882, OPS+ (adjustment OPS) 140, and WAR (winning contribution compared to substitute players) 3.5 at bat.
In the “ZiPS” system, Ohtani ranked first in home runs, RBIs, and second in WAR in the 2023 season. The No. 1 hitter in the team is expected to record 4.8 with Mike Trout.
He also saw that he would play his part in 27 games, 156 innings, 13 wins and 8 losses, an ERA of 3.00, 193 strikeouts, 45 walks, and WAR 4.1. He also predicted that he would rank first in multiple wins, innings, strikeouts, and WAR in the team.
The total number of shot and shot WAR is 7.6. The statistics site predicted that he will still be an MVP-class player, although it is lower than last year’s WAR’s total of 9.4.
The power of Ohtani’s pitching and hitting business has been exploding since 2021. Last year, he batted .273 (160 hits in 586 at-bats) in 157 games as a batter, 34 home runs and 95 RBIs, and played 28 games (166 innings) with 15 wins, 9 losses and a 2.33 ERA, ranking second in the MVP vote. 코인파워볼
Otani, who is entering the ‘preparative FA’ season this year, signed a one-year, $30 million contract with the Angels. In addition, when entering the FA market, it is predicted that a contract worth $500 million is not in vain. Will Ohtani’s pitching and batting performance continue this year?
