A sworn brother reunion? Profar signs minor contract with San Diego

Will the sworn brothers be able to reunite?

The San Diego Union-Tribune, a leading media outlet in the San Diego area, reported on the 2nd (Korean time) that the San Diego Padres signed Jurickson Profar (30) to a minor league contract.

Profar agreed to a one-year, $7.75 million contract with the Colorado Rockies this season, but was released after batting average of 0.236, on-base percentage, 0.316 slugging average, 0.364, 8 home runs and 39 RBIs in 111 games.

Freed, Profar chose a team he was familiar with, having played three seasons before, as a new destination.

Profar played in 345 games for the Padres over the previous three years, batting average of .244, on-base percentage of .333, and slugging percentage of .375. In the 2022 season, he became the starting left fielder and helped the team reach the postseason.

He was also Kim Ha-sung’s best colleague. Ha-seong Kim referred to Pro-Pha as his older brother through his social media, and Pro-Pha-Sung Kim as “younger brother” and stayed with them as a sworn brother.

But the world of pros is sober. Profar bid farewell by executing an opt-out based on the success of the 2022 season.

As a result, this turned out to be a bad choice. He went to the free agent market, but received a one-year contract only in March, and even this was humiliated by being released during the season due to poor performance.온라인바카라

Once highly anticipated as one of the league’s top prospects, Profar is having a career that doesn’t live up to those expectations. He is a veteran with 947 appearances in 10 seasons in the major leagues, batting average of 0.238, on-base percentage of 0.322, and slugging percentage of 0.383. He has experience playing all positions except pitcher and catcher. As for the 2023 season, he only played as an outfielder.

Pro Parr will join Triple-A El Paso under the Padres, but he could be called up for the rest of the season.

The San Diego Union-Tribune introduced Profar as a potential call-up candidate in line with roster expansion.
