“Let’s think about something fun.”
SSG Landers’ new foreign pitcher, Loenis Elias, is imminent. The SSG team officially announced on the 4th that they had agreed to a contract with Cuban left-handed pitcher Elias. The terms of the contract are $540,000 (approximately 720 million won). After Eni Romero left the team at the end of spring camp due to shoulder pain, he never made it to the first team. SSG, which was quickly looking for a replacement player, selected Elias as the new pitcher after searching for several candidates.
After examining the injury history and recent condition, SSG plans to request the KBO to disclose player registration if it passes the final medical test.메이저사이트
SSG coach Kim Won-hyung, who met with reporters ahead of the Incheon KT Wiz game on the 4th, said, “There has been an issue with foreign pitcher injuries every year since I took office. More than the video I watched before coming, it is more important to come and throw the ball healthily. Elias has a career He is not a flashy player, but he has enough skills. I hope he comes back and rotates healthy.” He added, “He said he might be able to enter the country as early as next week.” The exact time of entry depends on the speed of resolution such as work visa issuance.
When Elias joins, SSG will effectively have seven starting pitchers. Elias, Kirk McCarty, Kwang-Hyun Kim, Won-Seok Oh, Seung-Won Moon, Jong-Hun Park, and rookie Young-Jin Song. As rookie Youngjin Song stood out as a starter, SSG was in a rotation of six players taking turns taking breaks one by one.
Manager Kim Won-hyung predicted a change, saying, “I’m trying to think happily. There are a lot of starting pitchers, so it seems that the bullpen is having a hard time. I think there may be a situation where some of the starting pitchers move to the bullpen.”
