Nolan Arenado, who is currently evaluated as the best third baseman in the major leagues, opened his mouth about his future plans.
Arenado said in an interview with ‘MLB.com’ on the 6th (Korean time), “I want to retire at the age of 38. I want to show my daughter Levy how I play baseball, but I want to aim to retire at 38.”
He made his first major league appearance in 2013 with the Colorado Rockies. He ranked 7th for Rookie of the Year, and was awarded the Gold Glove upon his debut.
Arenado’s defense is the best in the league. His Gold Glove streak continues to this day. He won the Gold Glove in all 10 seasons and the Platinum Glove 6 times.
He also hit the highest level, and he recorded a career batting average of 0.289, 299 homers, 968 RBIs, 803 runs, and an OPS of 0.881, and harvested five Silver Sluggers. He was also selected as an All-Star seven times.
He is entering his 31st season this year, and it is still too early to set a date for his retirement. However, he did explain the timing of his retirement.먹튀검증
“I watched Adam Wainwright, Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina. I don’t want to play baseball until I’m 40 like them. I will set my career at around 38,” he explained.
He continued, “My passion for baseball has not cooled. The physical condition did not deteriorate either. I want my body to stay the same until retirement season.” Arenado will also be St. Louis’ starting third baseman this season.
Arenado has a contract with St. Louis through the 2027 season. The 38-year-old season he wants is the 2029 season. With his two-year contract required, attention is focusing on which team he will end his career with and whether he will win consecutive Gold Glove awards until his retirement season.
