Utility player Kike Hernandez (31, Boston Red Sox) showed confidence in playing shortstop.
Hernandez appeared on the American podcast ‘The Chris Rose Rotation’ on the 6th (hereafter local time). On this day, he had a conversation with MC Chris Rose on various topics about 2023 in Boston.
On this day, the issue of Boston’s infield was also mentioned. Boston’s current 40-man roster includes infielders Trevor Story, Rafael Devers, Bobby Dalbec, Triston Karthus, Christian Arroyo, Justin Turner and Adalberto Mondesi. 스포츠토토
It’s not bad if you look at the members alone, but the transfer of Zander Bogatz (San Diego Padres) and the confirmation that Story will leave for more than half of the season due to right elbow surgery last month are raising concerns from local fans. After being demoted to Triple A last year, the news that Dalbec came out as a trade sale added to the disappointment.
Referring to this situation, Rose said, “I think I will work as a shortstop a lot in the future. When asked if there is any pressure, Hernandez said, “There is no problem. I am confident,” he replied.
“Of course, I know there are fans who are concerned. But at the end of the season, they will be laughing,” he said. “What they have to consider is that I am not afraid.”
Hernandez will play shortstop in his first game against the Baltimore Orioles on March 30th.
