It was common for the Eastern District of the American League 메이저놀이터 (AL) to be evaluated as the strongest district in the MLB.
However, as a result of this off-season player transfer, it was expected that the AL East would no longer be the strongest.
MLB.com predicted the 2023 Cheogang district on the 16th (local time) and picked the National League (NL) Eastern District as the strongest. The power of the Atlanta Braves, New York Mets, and Philadelphia Phillies overwhelms other districts.
2021 World Series champ Atlanta may have problems with Dansby Swanson’s move, but it won’t cost much as they signed Sean Murphy and Ronald Acuna Jr. will be stronger.
The team to watch out for is the New York Mets. The pitching staff was further reinforced by the addition of Justin Verlander, Senga Kodai and Jose Quintana. There is also news that he is also aiming to recruit a big hitter.
Philadelphia, which advanced to the 2022 World Series, also recruited Trea Turner to reinforce the batting line.
MLB.com then ranked the NL West in second place.
MLB.com analyzes that although the Los Angeles Dodgers missed Turner, they will be able to maintain their power with the 2022 season because of their large player base. Plus, Walker Buehler and Dustin May are recovering from injuries and returning to the field.
The San Diego Padres acquired Xander Bogatz to build a more solid infield, and the San Francisco Giants also recruited Carlos Correa to reinforce their batting line.
Here, the Arizona Diamondbacks are also likely to appear as a dark horse in the 2022 season. Arizona won 22 more wins in the 2022 season compared to the previous year.
Third place is the AL East Division. The New York Yankees, Toronto Blue Jays, and Tampa Bay Rays will compete fiercely in the 2023 season, but overall, it was evaluated that there was nothing significantly better than the teams in the NL East or West.
The fourth place is the AL West Division, where the Houston Astros, the World Series champion, are holding
NL Central was ranked fifth, and AL Central was expected to be sixth.
In sum, it was analyzed that the Eastern Division was strong and the Central Division was weak in both leagues.
This is not irrelevant to the fact that most of the rich clubs are concentrated in the East and West.
