The Texas Rangers are notorious for signing “bust” players and then losing them.
Texas spent a whopping $500 million to sign Marcus Semien and Corey Seager ahead of the 2022 season. They signed Semien to a seven-year, $175 스포츠토토 million deal, and Seager to a 10-year, $325 million deal.
Semien suffered a severe hitting slump at the start of the 2022 season. There were concerns here and there, but he eventually found his form and hit 26 home runs to make a statement. The season before, he had hit 45 arches for the Toronto Blue Jays.
Now that he’s settled in in Texas, Semien has been spinning the bat this season. In 62 games, he’s batting .295 with nine home runs and 50 RBIs.
Seager had a career-worst .245 batting average last season, but his 33 home runs made up for it.
He struggled with injuries this season, but after returning, he hit .325 with six home runs.
