Chris Bryant (31) hit a home run for the first time at Coors Field in a Colorado Rockies uniform.
In the 2023 Major League Baseball Pittsburgh Pirates home game held at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, USA on the night of the 17th (local time), Bryant drew a solo arch against left-hander Rich Hill in the bottom of the 3rd inning, who was trailing 0-9. . The speed of the ball when it bounced off the bat was measured at 167 km/h, the flight distance was 132 m, and the launch angle was 32 degrees.
It was Bryant’s first home run at Coors Field since joining the Rockies last year. Bryant signed a seven-year, $182 million (approximately 239.9 billion won) contract with the Rockies as a free agent (FA) in March 2022. The annual salary is 26 million dollars (34.294 billion won).
Bryant, who made his debut with the Chicago Cubs, is a star player who was selected as the National League Rookie of the Year in 2015, the National League Most Valuable Player (MVP) in 2016, and an All-Star four times. He was expected to become a ‘signboard’ in the major leagues, but he did not grow as much as expected.
During his first year with the Rockies, he only appeared in 42 games due to back and foot injuries. He only played 26 games at Coors Field. He didn’t get bad grades. Last year at home, he had a productive performance with a batting average of 0.322 and an on-base percentage of 0.387.
Still, it’s not good news that he didn’t hit a home run at Coors Field, which is considered the most home run park out of the 30. Last season Bryant shot a total of five cannons. He hit one at Dodger Stadium (LA Dodgers), one at American Family Field (Milwalker Brewers), and three at Chase Field (Arizona Diamondbacks).메이저사이트
He has not recovered his slugging power this season either. His only home run before this game came from T-Mobile Park (Seattle Mariners).
Bryant has played 49 games so far at Coors Field. As a member of the Cubs, he hit one home run in each of 2016 and 2017 here.
Bryant has a batting average of 0.323 (21 hits in 65 at-bats), 2 homers, 5 RBIs, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.867 this season. Considering the price, it’s a disappointing result. His career home runs in the big leagues are 174.
