A team has appeared interested in Blake Snell , who is not receiving much attention despite being a Cy Young Award winner, overshadowed by 'biggest pitcher' Yoshinobu Yamamoto .

The U.S. MLB Network reported on the 20th (Korean time) that the Los Angeles Angels had discussions regarding a contract with Snell, who won the National League Cy Young Award last season.

After the signing of Shohei Otani  , the star of the current off-season is Yamamoto. Accordingly, Snell, the winner of the Cy Young Award, is receiving relatively little attention.

Taking advantage of this, the LA Angels are targeting Snell. However, even if the LA Angels add Snell to the mound, it will be difficult for them to advance to the postseason.

Snell pitched 180 innings in 32 games last season, recording 14 wins, 9 losses, and an ERA of 2.25. This record surpasses the National League and ranks first in ERA in the Major League.

At one time, not many people expected Snell to win the Cy Young Award because of his pitching skills. However, Snell became the Cy Young Award winner in both leagues thanks to his outstanding pitching at the end of the season.

The estimated ransom is estimated at around $200 million. Considering that the agent is Scott Boras, the final price could well exceed $200 million.

Snell has expressed his desire to play for his hometown team, the Seattle Mariners. However, Seattle is a team with a solid starting lineup. He is likely to focus on strengthening the batting lineup. 먹튀검증
