MLB: By little! George Springer stays at nothing of the cycle with Blue Jays

MLB By little George Springer stays at nothing of the

For the first 70 games of the season, George springer existed primarily as an idea on the horizon with the Toronto blue jays. A quadriceps injury landed him on the disabled list twice with a brief comeback in between, but that barely registered as Springer wasn’t playing on the field (DH) and didn’t look like his true self.

It wasn’t until June 22 that the 31-year-old made his full and healthy debut for the Blue Jays, and it took him a couple of weeks to get rid of the expected rust. However, now that Springer is back, you’re watching a superstar, a one-man show at the top of a star-studded lineup:

Springer was 4-for-5 with three RBIs, just one triple left for the cycle, in Wednesday’s 8-6 win over Cleveland, which felt like a blast early on before the bullpen left. that things were coming up late.

He also started with his trademark, a starting home run. The 439-foot hit was unmistakable and was the 42nd leadoff HR of his career, which is the eighth-highest in MLB history and the highest among active players. You have a long way to go to reach Rickey Henderson (81), but there is a lot of time. If George stays healthy, he could play another nine years.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
