‘Short-term replacement player’ SSG Shirakawa, first bullpen pitching at Landers Field

SSG ‘Short-term replacement foreign pitcher’ Shirakawa

Keisho Shirakawa (23, registered name Shirakawa), a ‘short-term replacement foreign pitcher’ selected by professional baseball SSG Landers, warmed up at Incheon SSG Landers Field, which will be his home stadium for more than six weeks.

Shirakawa completed tubing, catch ball, and bullpen pitching at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 26th.

Shirakawa, who entered the country late in the afternoon on the 25th, did weight training at SSG Landers Field that day, and came to the stadium early on the 26th and threw a ball in front of SSG officials, including pitching coach Bae Young-soo.

SSG coach Lee Soong-yong said, “Shirakawa has a very good impression. He looks like he can throw well,” and hoped, “I hope he will help the team as expected.”

SSG’s starting lineup had an ERA of 6.53 as of the 25th, the lowest among the 10 professional baseball teams. 메이저사이트

Foreign pitcher Roenis Elias suffered a left internal oblique muscle injury that required more than six weeks of treatment, causing greater concern.

This year, Korean Professional Baseball introduced a new system that allows if an existing foreign player is injured enough to require treatment for more than six weeks, the player is listed on the rehabilitation player list and a replacement foreign player is allowed to play until the player returns. 슬롯사이트

SSG decided to utilize this system, and Shirakawa, who played for the Tokushima Indigo Sox of the Shikoku Island League, an independent league in Japan, became the ‘KBO’s first short-term substitute foreign player.’

SSG said, “We paid attention to the fact that Shirakawa has a pitching tempo that is difficult to deal with,” and added, “He also has an advantage in terms of game management based on his fastball of 150 km per hour and stable control of breaking balls such as slider, curve, and changeup.” .

Shirakawa had been pitching in practice until recently.

Once the documentation procedures are completed, Shirakawa is expected to make his KBO League debut soon. 토토사이트 순위
