Kansas City Royals sign utility man Hampson to one-year deal

Kansas City Royals sign utility man Hampson to one-year deal

Garrett Hampson, the 29-year-old went for a walk. He was born on October 10, 1994 in Reno, Nevada, United States. The talented outfielder made his major league debut with the Colorado Rockies (2018-2022). He did so last season with the Miami Marlins, with whom he managed to get the best results.

In the 2023 regular season, Hampson enjoyed 221 at-bats, collecting 61 hits for an overall average of .276. He homered three times, largely driving in 23 runs. He stole five bases and had a .729 OPS.advertisements

In his six seasons in the major leagues, the American played 1,379 at-bats. He had a .241 average with 333 hits. He drove in 113 runs and hit 29 home runs. His OPS was .676 and he had 57 stolen bases under his belt.

Garrett Hampson to the Kansas City Royals

The Kansas City Royals posted on their Twitter account on November 29: We’ve signed Garrett Hampson to a one-year contract, welcome to Kansas City, Garrett!. The utility man probably had the best season of his life MLB. His outstanding performance helped him get this contract worth $2 million.

It should be noted that Garrett Hampson did it all on defense. Just by noting that he covered up to six positions: CF, LF, RF, SS, 3B and 2B, he can easily be classified as a true all-rounder. Because of the above, it will be impossible to put him in a permanent position for next season. After signing with the Kansas City Royals, this team became his third home in the MLB. First he would do so with the Colorado Rockies and then with the Miami Marlins last season. It is true that at 29 years old, a major league player can already be considered a veteran. It remains to be seen how much Hampson will contribute to his new team.
