Although the blood latin once again it is setting the tone in the campaign of the MLB, there is a group of players who have not been able to shine during the contest, either due to injuries suffered or serious offensive problems, so it is likely that they will have to work more than necessary during the winter to regain their star status in the majors .
Here are the five Latino figures who should play in the winter leagues after their poor performance during the 2021 contest.
After seasons of 24 and 33 home runs with the Yankees, Gleyber Torres has not been able to be that productive player in the middle of the lineup again. With a discreet .253 average and 7 home runs in 2021, he should think about seeing action in winter baseball to get his offense back on track.
Gary Sánchez has continued to show serious problems. Although he has 21 home runs this season, he has suffered offensive slumps that have seen him alternate starting with the New York Yankees, so perhaps with a new experience in winter baseball he could improve to return to the elite of catchers.
Although Odubel Herrera has been part of 110 games with the Phillies this season, the Venezuelan has not had the same brilliance that led him to be considered one of the best outfielders in the Major Leagues. In 2021 he has an average of .256, 13 homers and 50 RBIs, statistics that could improve after his passage through the winter ball.
Eddie Rosario’s career has come to a halt in this 2021 season, first with the Indios and now with the Braves, a team in which he has been serving as a fourth outfielder and occasional pinch hitter. He is hitting .254 with 11 homers and 56 RBIs.
Robinson Canó did not play this year with the Mets, due to suspension for repeated use of prohibited substances. However, he will have the opportunity to show that he can still be a useful piece for his team’s offense, venturing into the 2022 LIDOM season with Estrellas Orientales.
