Doosan Bears Manager Lee Seung-yeop “Yokishi is in good health Shirakawa is adapting to KBO”

Short-term replacement foreign pitcher concerns “We need to wait a week and see”


Doosan Bears, who are looking for a short-term replacement foreign pitcher, are considering between Keisho Shirakawa and Eric Jokisch.

Doosan Bears manager Lee Seung-yeop met with reporters at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 2nd and said, “I have to think carefully about everything and make a good decision.”

The manager said of Yokishi, who had his first test on the 30th of last month, “I heard (the results) weren’t bad. His physical condition seems to be completely fine for throwing the ball.”

However, he added, “I’m worried that I might have some trouble getting a feel for the actual game since I’ve been training alone for a year without a team.

Yokishi was released from the team in June of last year after being diagnosed with a ruptured left thigh muscle while playing for the Kiwoom Heroes. His KBO League career record is 56 wins, 36 losses, and an ERA of 2.85 over five seasons.

“Yokishi was scheduled to undergo additional testing tomorrow, but there is a possibility that it may change due to the weather,” a club official explained.

The manager said of Shirakawa, “He already has a visa and has adapted well to Korean baseball over the past month, so I think he would be a good fit (as a short-term foreign player).” 카지노사이트

Shirakawa, who is from the Japanese independent league, played for SSG Landers as a replacement foreign player for Yoenis Elias for the month of June.

He started in 5 games, recording 2 wins, 2 losses, and an ERA of 5.09. Excluding the game against Lotte Giants, where he allowed 7 runs in 1⅓ innings, his ERA would have dropped to 2.

“We have to wait a week because we have to go through the waiver announcement. We don’t have priority either, so we’ll take our time and see,” the manager said.

Each club can designate Shirakawa in reverse order of ranking at the time of the waiver announcement. Doosan is currently in 4th place in the league.

Doosan’s current foreign pitcher, Brandon Waddell, was diagnosed with a left subscapularis injury on the 25th of last month and was out of action. 토토사이트 순위
