Twins playing on the same team have the same grades?
Something that can only come out of a cartoon is happening in the American Major League (MLB). This is the story of brothers Taylor Rogers (32) and right-handed underhander Tyler Rogers (32) of the San Francisco Giants.
Born on December 17, 1990 as identical twins, the Rogers brothers have been playing for the same team since this season. San Francisco was his younger brother Tyler’s team, but that’s because his older brother Taylor, who was a different team, signed a three-year, $33 million contract with San Francisco after becoming a free agent after last season.
With Taylor’s joining, the Rogers brothers became the fourth MLB case of twins playing on the same team. The most recent example before the Rogers brothers was the Canseco brothers of the Oakland Athletics in 1990.
The Rogers brothers are already receiving a lot of attention locally, playing for the same team, playing the same game, and standing on the mound in the same inning.
The most surprising thing is the performance of both players. Older brother Taylor has a 2.52 earned run average (ERA), 1.09 on-base percentage (WHIP) per inning, 46 strikeouts, 6 wins, 4 losses, 7 holds and 1 save in 39.1 innings. His brother, Tyler, pitched 56.2 innings, posting a 2.54 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, 45 strikeouts, 4-4, 24 holds and 2 saves.
WHIP is exactly the same at 1.09, ERA is 0.02 difference, and the number of strikeouts is 1 difference, so it is safe to say that they are virtually the same. It’s like they’re getting ‘twin-like’ results.
However, unlike grades, there is a big difference between the two people’s salaries. Unlike his older brother, who signed a free agent contract, his younger brother Rogers is only earning $1,675,000 in salary as this year is his fourth year of big league service time. It’s still a small amount compared to his older brother, who earns an average of $11 million a year, but if he continues this record, next year’s salary is expected to increase significantly.
Thanks to the Rogers brothers’ great success, the San Francisco bullpen’s fWAR (contribution to wins versus substitutes based on fan graphs) is 5.4, which is second in the league, and the bullpen’s ERA is 3.62, which ranks fifth in the league.안전놀이터
San Francisco is 62-52 and is second in the National League (NL) West behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. There is a gap with the Dodgers by 6 games, but in the wild card race, they can advance to the postseason as long as there is no change. At this rate, it is expected to see an unusual appearance of twin brothers standing side by side on the mound even in fall baseball.
