Campos cortos en MLB 2023 / Short fields in MLB 2023
LOS MEJORES, SEGUNDA PARTE / THE BEST, PART TWO
Continuing with the analysis of the positions in the field of play in MLB, of each of the teams for this 2023, we go to which is one of the favorites for many, the shortstop, being me coming from a country of clearly talented in this location in the field as it is Venezuela, I will dedicate myself to make a study of the same, and what the players must have to be truly successful in this new season, combining their defensive and offensive talent, also based on their previous performances, to see more clearly their projections for this month of April, when a new season begins in the best baseball in the world, as it is the major league.
CAMPOS CORTOS EN MLB 2023 / SHORT FIELDS IN MLB 2023
Starting now from the point that shortstops in this era are good hitters, and are not entirely defensive, I'm going to talk about 3 shortstops who have both attributes but with a degree that is ideal, without much equipment, but that perfectly fulfill that role, to be upright and have more than strength and defense, and I'm talking about shortstop Trea Turner, who appears to be only a very good defensive player but it turns out that he is also good with his bat, not so good as to say that he is a power player, or occasional power, but with the ability and talent necessary to always be on the bases, which is what is really required, based on another point, that power players are responsible for bringing in the runs.
And all this is so true, that Trea Turner in the last 2 years, has been with a total of 3 teams, Nationals, Dodgers and Phillies, and for this season of 2023, will be with his fourth currency in this time span, giving evidence that what I say is so important, that has been a very sought after player, because he goes well with the bat, being a line drive player, a good base runner, a base stealer, and the defensive talent that can't be missed, keeping the ball in play at all times, giving his team a chance to score runs, a department that he has led with ease this past season.
In the second box we find the player that in recent weeks, has been a controversy, Mr. Carlos Correa, due to the high demand of several teams, for having been declared a free agent, and not having reached an agreement with the different teams which wanted him, and then return to his original ninth, the Minnesota Twins, and finally sign with them, The things that kept him away from the other 2 suitors, have nothing to do with his performance, since his talent is more than clear, batting and defense, timely connections, that lead him to be a good lineup hitter, and with some power, that adding this to any lineup, is of utmost importance, because he will hit in key moments of the game.
Defensively, we see that Correa is also very good, and combined with his excellent batting, he could be the most important piece for Minnesota in 2023, since they will need a mix of both from the Puerto Rican player, to be able to give chase to Chicago and Cleveland in a 3-team fight to conquer the pennant of the center of the American League, his defensive throws have been seen since his time with the Houston Astros, and led that team to have the defensive attributes necessary to reach the championship in 2017.
Now in a new position, it is the turn of the shortstop from the Netherlands, Xander Bogaerts, with more experience and 2 World Series titles to his credit achieved with the Boston Red Sox, Xander comes to the San Diego Padres to add more level to a team that is completely made up of pure stars, mostly Latin American, the Caribbean player, has what perhaps was missing to this team of the Padres, security, experience and good batting at shortstop, not that Fernando Tatis Jr. It's not that Fernando Tatis Jr. didn't have it, but due to constant injuries and extra sporting problems, the organization decided to bring him in to give solidity to that position, with someone who naturally plays it like he does.
When I refer to being a natural, I mean that he is a natural player of that position, that in baseball, is fundamental, since he is a player who since his beginnings always played in that position, and more in the center line, which include, shortstop, second base and center field, which are the axis of a team in terms of defense, with the arrival of Xander adds security in the infield, Xander also has the mix of being a batting and defensive player, with that technical touch that does not stand out but is not too low, which is what the San Diego team needs the most for this 2023 season, and thus reach the World Series, which they fell short last season when they lost in the National League Championship Series against the Philadelphia Phillies.
NI TAN CORTA / NOT SO SHORT
Here the list is also more extensive, and there are more names so we could say: why are not in the top 3 places? because it is due to what we talked about before, they do not have that mix or that touch of not having so much and so little, that is, the necessary batting and the necessary defense to help you in the field, as the kind of perfect balance that will help you in a great way and to reach where always or everyone wants to reach, reach the championship of the World Series in 2023.
En la lista de los mejores en esta posición para este 2023 están, Bo Bichette, Francisco Lindor, Tim Anderson y Wander Franco, que si nos ponemos a ver a ciencia cierta, si, son igualmente de buenos que los que le acabo de hablar en esta publicación, pero son más conocidos por su bate que con su guante, son mas bates alegres que buenos fildeadores, habiendo un desbalance a la hora de evaluar de qué es lo mejor para sus respectivos equipos, no habiendo ese balance que estos 3 tienen y que los hacen de esta forma, los tres mejores campocorto en la actualidad en todo el béisbol de las grandes ligas, que sin duda para esta próxima temporada, no nos van a decepcionar.
In the list of the best in this position for this 2023 are, Bo Bichette, Francisco Lindor, Tim Anderson and Wander Franco, that if we see for sure, yes, they are equally as good as the ones I just talked about in this publication, but they are more known for their bat than with their glove, they are more happy bats than good fielders, There is an imbalance when it comes to evaluating what is best for their respective teams, not having the balance that these 3 have and that make them the three best shortstops in Major League Baseball today, and without a doubt for this upcoming season, they will not disappoint us.
