Major League Baseball: Abraham Toro failed to convince the Brewers

Major baseball: Abraham Toro failed to convince Brewers


Quebecer Abraham Toro will start the 2023 season in the minor leagues, since the Milwaukee Brewers traded him to their AAA level club on Monday.

The infielder will therefore have to stand out with the Nashville Sounds if he wants to be back in major league baseball. The 26-year-old athlete has 262 major league games, having played for the Houston Astros and Seattle Mariners.

In 13 preseason games with the Brewers, Toro averaged .185. He hit five hits and drove in two runs. The one who grew up in Longueuil also participated in the World Baseball Classic recently, notably forming an infield with a Quebec flavor with Otto Lopez (Toronto Blue Jays) and Édouard Julien (Minnesota Twins).

The Brewers acquired Toro last December. It was obtained in the trade that sent Kolten Wong to the Mariners.

Julien has fun at bat

For the Twins, Édouard Julien continued his excellent spring camp in an 8-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Quebec native had two hits and two runs, in addition to producing another in three appearances at the plate.

In the second inning, he hit a single which pushed his teammate Trevor Larnach at home plate. A few moments later, a home run by Hernan Perez allowed him to complete his lap of the trails.

Julien also hit a single on the next round. History repeated itself with a Donovan Solano bombshell. The 23-year-old Quebecer hit a weak ground ball in the fifth and was then substituted on defense.

The Twins' 18th-round pick in the 2019 draft had eight hits, including three homers, six runs products and as many points scored since the beginning of this preparatory calendar. He has a batting average of .375.
