Will what happened in the World Series affect Framber Valdez's career?

The Dominican left-hander did not have a good performance but on the way to his 28 years he still has time to show his quality and worth

Throughout the 2021 regular season, Framber Valdez He allowed only five earned runs on July 6 against the Oakland Athletics among a total of 22 appearances.

On that occasion he pitched 5 innings, nothing like what happened in the World Series in his pair of outings where he could not exceed three episodes.

There is no doubt that the Dominican pitcher came out badly from what happened in the Fall Classic but the important thing is that he should not allow the bad moments to define what will happen in the immediate future of his career.

Framber is entering his first year of salary arbitration, and while it shouldn’t be the main thing, his World Series performance is likely to influence the final deal.

Valdez will be eligible as a free agent for the first time in 2026, at age 32, just in time to be able to land a good multi-year contract or better yet, sign an extension earlier with the Houston Astros.

The native of Sabana Grande de Palenque must leave the episode behind as soon as possible and dedicate himself to learning from the mistakes made and returning to the level he had throughout the regular season and much of the playoffs.

Already Dusty Baker He has expressed his desire to return with the Houston team and the foreman during the World Series expressed his full support and confidence in Framber, emphasizing that he is young and has a lot to learn.

“With youth, you are always going to be somewhat inconsistent in your performance. When you are young and you are doing well, you are a boom, when you are doing badly, the world is on fire. It’s easy to accept the good times, but it is a life experience to accept the lows, “Baker said of Valdez before his second outing in the series.

Framber’s approach will be decisive in what is to come in his career and should not allow bad experience to have a direct influence on the type of pitcher he should be. There is quality and talent and maturity will be key to what happens.
