The 99th Dodgers was born for the first time since 2019

Kelly recently surrendered his number 17. Kelly signed a two-year contract with the Chicago White Sox after failing to sign as an FA after the 2021 season. 토토사이트링크 He then returned to his former team, the Dodgers, through a trade at the end of July of the 2023 season.

After completing the 2023 season, Kelly became an FA again. He also signed a single-year contract worth 8 million dollars with the Dodgers, and will play in the 2024 season.

However, there was an additional problem. It was his jersey number. Kelly was playing for the Dodgers under the uniform number 17, and the Dodgers was considering recruiting Ohtani, a 700 million dollar man.

Just before the contract with Ohtani was signed, local media reported that the Dodgers called Kelly and asked him, Can you give up your number 17?

And this was confirmed to be true. The Dodgers actually signed a 10-year contract worth 700 million U.S. dollars, and Kelly readily surrendered No. 17, saying, It’s an honor to be able to yield my uniform number to a player like Otani.

However, Kelly chose number 99. Originally, it was said that Kelly would choose number 58, which she used when she was a rookie, but the final choice was 99. Ashley Kelly, Kelly’s wife, made headlines among her fans when she revealed her change of uniform through her personal social media account through a cheerful self-video.

No. 99 is the jersey number that Ryu Hyun-jin wore in the Dodgers. While playing for the Dodgers for seven seasons in the 2013-2019 season, Ryu used the jersey number 99 that he had stuck to since the Hanwha Eagles. No one wore the jersey number 99 after Ryu left the Dodgers, and Kelly became the Dodgers’ 99th player after Ryu.
