Yoshinobu Yamamoto (25, LA Dodgers), who was guaranteed the highest ransom for the longest contract as a pitcher in Major League history before making his debut, was also well-received in next year’s Cy Young Award prediction.월카지노
U.S. sports betting company “FanDuel” unveiled the 2024 National League Cy Young Award dividend rate at this point when Yamamoto signed a contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers on the 29th (Korea time).
According to the report, Yamamoto has been given +1600 dividends, just like Japanese pitchers Senga Kodai (New York Mets) and Justin Steele (Chicago Cubs). +1600 means that a bet of 100 dollars can cost 1,600 dollars, and the lower the chance, the higher the chance of winning the prize.
Yamamoto officially confirmed his advance to the Major League at a press conference on joining the Dodgers on the previous day. The Dodgers surprised many by giving Ruki Yamamoto a 12-year, 325 million-dollar contract. Yamamoto’s contract is the longest and highest ever for a pitcher in the history of the Major League.
The contract contains expectations that it will work in the Major League Baseball as he has been so active that he has been selected as the MVP of four pitchers for three consecutive years in Japanese professional baseball.
The dividend rate also reflected expectations. Yamamoto’s dividend rate is tied for seventh at this point.
Senga, who received the same dividend rate as Yamamoto, made his big league debut this year and played 166 ⅓ with 12 wins, 7 losses and a 2.98 ERA, while Steel, in his third year in the big league, recorded 16 wins, 5 losses and a 3.06 ERA in 173 ⅓ innings this year.
The same dividend rate means that Yamamoto is expected to perform similarly to them.
Tyler Glasnow, acquired by the Dodgers in a trade, had a higher dividend rate of “+1900” than Yamamoto.
As of now, Spencer Strider of the Atlanta Braves has been selected as the top candidate for the Cy Young Award. Strider is a pitcher who has recorded 20 wins, 5 losses, and an ERA of 3.86 this year, with the lowest dividend rate of +550.
After that, Jack Wheeler (Arizona Diamondbacks) and Logan Webb (San Francisco Giants) ranked second and third.
However, the dividend rate should be taken into account at this point. Blake Snell, this year’s National League Cy Young Award winner who has yet to sign a contract as an FA, has been excluded from the dividend rate.
