Toronto calls up Triple A outfielder Eden after stealing 53 bases

The Toronto Blue Jays called up a new player.

The Blue Jays announced on the 21st (Korean time) that it would sign a major league contract with outfielder Cam Eden (25) ahead of the away game against the New York Yankees and include him on the big league roster.

Eden was a sixth-round draft pick in 2019 and played in 329 games over four seasons in the minor league, recording a batting average of 0.246, an on-base percentage of 0.334, and a slugging percentage of 0.357.

This season, he played in 131 games for Triple-A Buffalo, recording a batting average of 0.257, an on-base percentage of 0.354, a slugging percentage of 0.333, 3 home runs, and 48 RBIs.

His true value was revealed in Roussang. He attempted to steal 57 bases this season, 53 of which were successful.스포츠토토

The 53 steals are the second highest record in the Triple A International League after David Hamilton (Boston Triple A, 57 steals).

In his entire minor league career, he succeeded in stealing 127 bases, showing off his quick feet and base running sense.

According to the Canadian media ‘Sportsnet’, he is evaluated as having high-quality center field defense skills.

Eden, a right-handed hitter, is expected to get opportunities mainly as a pinch runner or as a substitute defender. He is expected to be evaluated for his availability in the postseason.

Toronto has two center fielders in Kevin Kiermaier and Dalton Basho, but both are left-handed hitters.

Toronto sent infielder Ernie Clements down to Triple-A to make room for him on the 28-man roster and designated infielder Mason McCoy as a transfer to make room for him on the 40-man roster.
