Luis Severino and Germán Márquez are listed as two good Latin pitchers in the MLBHowever, at present both arms live different moments. The Dominican of the New York Yankees he just returned from an injury that kept him out for almost two years.
While the Colorado Rockies right-hander has been an important piece of his club, serving as the first pitcher of the team’s rotation during 2021.
When reviewing the investments made by their respective organizations we find that Severino he has made $ 24.5 million in the last three major league seasons, according to Spotrac data, in which he has only been able to record just 5 innings pitched with 7 strikeouts in 3 games.
This makes it clear that the Bronx club office has not been able to have a good return on its investment compared to the Dominican who is 43-26 in 6 seasons in New York and that it has cost him perhaps not to reach at least one World Series in the same period.
As for Marquez, the right-hander has been an effective pitcher for the rotation. This year he is 12-11 with a 4.40 ERA, which although they are not the best statistics, the fact that most of his games are in Colorado, a park that is well used by hitters.
The Venezuelan, who is making $ 7.5 million this year from his 5-year, $ 43 million contract, was selected to the All-Star Game and was also one of the most sought after pieces during the trade deadline, something that shows how valuable he can be. be on the mound.
Both are necessary pitchers in their respective rotations and it is expected that in the future they will continue to show it, since they will be under the control of the team for the next 2 seasons in the case of Severino and three schedules with respect to Márquez.
