On the 25th (hereinafter Korean time), MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, quoted a report from the Washington Post and said, “Strasburg, the 2019 World Series MVP, will retire from the baseball world.”
Strasburg will hold a press conference on his retirement on September 10 at Nationals Park, home of the Washington Nationals.
Strasburg, who entered the major leagues with the first overall pick in the first round of the 2009 draft, made his major league debut in 2010, the following year. Strasburg, whose potential exploded in 2012 with a record of 15 wins and 6 losses and an average difference of 3.16, achieved double-digit wins for six consecutive years from 2014 (14 wins) to 2019, serving as the ace of the Washington starters.
In particular, in 2019, he recorded 18 wins (6 losses, 3.32 ERA), the most in an individual season, and led Washington to fall baseball. Washington won its first World Series championship that year, and Strasburg, who recorded 2 wins in 2 games and an ERA of 2.51, won the World Series MVP.
After winning the World Series, Washington gave Strasburg a 7-year, $245 million contract. However, as a result, this contract has become one of the most malicious contracts in major league history.
Strasburg, who suffered from constant injuries, had an average ERA of 10.80 in 2 games (5 innings) in 2020, 1 win, 2 losses in 5 games (21⅔ innings) in 2020, and an average ERA of 13.50 with 1 loss and 1 loss in 2021. left only records. Last time against the Miami Marlins on June 10, 2022, Strasburg was no longer on the major league mound.
Strasburg played 13 seasons in the big leagues and started 247 games, posting a record of 113-62 with a 3.24 ERA. He’s still on a contract that pays $35 million annually through 2026, part of which is split between 2027 and 2029. The Washington club did not purchase insurance for this contract, so it must bear all the remaining contracts.
