Kyle Seager (36, retired) and Corey Seager (29, Texas) are famous as big brother brothers who represent the 21st century major league.메이저사이트
Third baseman Kyle wore only a Seattle uniform from 2011 to 2021 and shot 242 homers in his 11-year career in the big leagues. His younger brother, Corey, is no slouch either. He made his major league debut with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2015, moved to Texas in 2022, and has hit 138 home runs in 9 big league seasons. In particular, last year he shot 33 home runs, a career high.
Following them, another brother Geopo was born in the major leagues. The main characters are Nate Low (28, Texas) and Josh Low (25, Tampa Bay).
The Lowe brothers entered the pros after being selected by Tampa Bay in the 2016 Major League Baseball Draft. The difference is that younger brother Josh received attention enough to be nominated in the first round (13 overall), while older brother Nate was ranked second in the 13th round (390 overall).
The contract payment was also heavenly. The older brother Nate received $100,000 (approximately 132.78 million won), while the younger brother Josh received a whopping $2.5975 million (approximately 3.44897 million won). The difference in starting was huge. He deserved to be called a dirt spoon and a gold spoon.

But a twist happened. While his older brother Nate, who was a junior nominee, debuted in the major leagues first in April 2019, his younger brother Josh, who made a splendid advance into the pros after being nominated in the first round, could barely step on the big league stage in August 2021, two years later than his older brother. there was.
Even after entering the major leagues, the paths of the two were completely different.
His older brother, Nate, wasn’t flashy, but he steadily made his mark. In particular, from the 2021 season, when he moved to Texas through a trade, he took root as the team’s first baseman, posting a batting average of 0.264, 18 homers, and 72 RBIs in 157 games that year. Last year, he improved even further with a batting average of 0.302, 27 homers and 76 RBIs.
On the other hand, the younger brother Josh’s progress was as slow as that of a turtle. Even after making his major league debut in 2021, he spent more time in minor league Triple-A. Last year, he was also sluggish in the big leagues with a batting average of 0.221, 2 home runs and 13 RBIs in 52 games. The OPS, which is the sum of the on-base percentage and slugging percentage, also fell short of expectations, only staying at 0.627.

Josh is showing a completely different side of himself this year. As of the 20th (Korean time), he has played in 37 games of the season, recording a batting average of 0.305 (39 hits in 128 at-bats), 10 home runs, and 30 RBIs. His OPS is a whopping 0.989. It is far superior to his older brother Nate’s 44 game batting average of 0.260, 5 homers and 27 RBIs.
In the major league career record, his brother Nate is still far ahead. Nate has a batting average of 0.276, 61 homers and 205 RBIs in 429 games, and Josh has a batting average of 0.258, 12 homers and 43 RBIs in 91 games. But now, as his younger brother Josh counterattacks with the appearance of a first-round nominee, fans are paying attention to the new Geopo brothers’ moves.
