Tottenham Hotspur's 'express prospect' Dane Scarlett has signed a formal professional contract, with fans complaining that the contract is short.
Tottenham officially signed a professional contract with Scarlets, who celebrated his 17th birthday, on its official website on Friday (Korea time), announcing that the contract is up to 2023.
Scarlets made his professional debut in the Europa League (UEL) of the European Football Confederation between 2020-2021 against Ludogorets last November. He is a member of the Academy and is being called up intermittently to first-team matches, showing off his extraordinary talent. In February, he made his debut in the English Premier League (EPL). He played a total of three games in Group 1.
Scarlett helped in the second leg of the Europa League (UEL) round of 32 in the 2020-2021 European Football Confederation at the age of just 16 years and 337 days in February. At the time, head coach José Mourinho said: "Scarlett, who turns 17 next month, has to be in the first-team squad from next season, he's already training with us, and his physical development is also excellent. I hope you keep your fantastic talent going," he praised.
The 16-year-old's assist record is the first since Killian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain); Mbappe once helped 스포츠중계 Tottenham when he was 16 in the past under AS Monaco.
Tottenham fans are unhappy with Scarlets' contract period, according to England's Football London, a concern over the part where he has not signed a long-term contract with a promising player. But it is a common procedure to sign a two-year contract when you are 17 years old. When you are 18 years old, you switch to a long-term contract. In the past, Troy Parrett also signed a three-year contract at the age of 18.
There was no seat for Japanese pitcher Yamaguchi (34).
CBS Sports and other local media said on the 29th (Korea time) that Yamaguchi will move to a minor league camp with Scott Kazmire (37).
Yamaguchi, who signed a minor league contract with San Francisco during spring camp, competed for the roster survival through a major league (MLB) demonstration game; expectations were high. He started in four games in the exhibition game, allowing one run in six innings, five hits, six strikeouts, and an ERA of 1.50. He also followed up with a hit percentage (0.217) and an on-base allowance per inning (WHIP, 1.17). Attention was focused on whether to register for the roster in the opening game, but it did not make sense. According to Mercury News, a local journalist in San Francisco, Yamaguchi has an opt-out clause that can destroy the contract, so it is unclear whether he will go down to the San Francisco minor league or leave for another team.
Yamaguchi made it to MLB in December 2019, signing with the Toronto club for a two-year, total of $6 million (6.8 billion won). He is a former ace who represents Yomiuri, a prestigious Japanese professional baseball team (NPB), and his NPB record (14 years) was 64 wins, 58 losses, and 112 saves with a 3.35 ERA. But I experienced a major failure in Toronto.
He started his career with a bullpen in 17 games last year, and he was 2-4 with a 1-hold ERA of 8.06. He was released in February and found a new team and wore a San Francisco uniform.He tried to register the opening entry with a demonstration game, but he failed.
