Yankees: The new catcher, Ben Rortvedt, surprises with his incredible muscles

The New York Yankees surprised everyone after their trade with the Minnesota Twins, sending Gio Urshela and Gary Sánchez to the Twin Cities for Josh Donaldson, Isiah Kiner-Falefa, and catcher Ben Rortverdt, filling perhaps every position. What was missing from the painting? Reportedly, first of all, the Yankees are very pleased with Rortverdt’s replacement and think he’s a better cover than Gary Sanchez.

While the 24-year-old Rortvedt didn’t have a great rookie season in 2021, he is believed to have much more to go than Sanchez, and Yankees fans are excited to have him on the team primarily because of his massive musculature, which made it all. a sensation in Minnesota last year with his teammates.

Rortverdt is 1.78 meters tall and weighs 92 kilograms of almost pure muscle, and although he has not stood out in his career for being a great home run hitter (only 24 between MLB and minor leagues), he is a very good defensive player and perhaps, because of his youth , may be better than Gary Sánchez.

I’m a fan of the San Francisco Giants, number one defender of Barry Bonds, and hater of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to have the World Series taken from them for their cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy football, flag football, basketball, and just about any other game that involves a ball or ball. I’m also an amateur musician, a penniless gamer and very nerdy.
