“I went to the leader”.
Shim Jae-hak, general manager of the KIA Tigers, went to the United States on the 28th to find a replacement foreign pitcher. 메이저사이트 추천
Head coach Kim Jong-guk said before the Gwangju match against Kiwoom on the 29th, “(Yesterday) even the general manager went to the United States, so I think news of the player contract will come out.”
“I have to do it as quickly as possible in the US, but it seems that the players are still lacking overall. There seems to be no pitcher with a certain level of skill. I am looking at a lot of players who were in the existing KBO league.”
KIA narrowed down three candidates. Among them, Thomas Panoni, who played for KIA last year, is included. He joined last year as a substitute outsider and pitched in 14 games, recording 3 wins and 4 losses with an earned run average of 2.72.
After the season, he did not renew the contract because he was recruiting a right-handed player. KIA signed Shawn Anderson and Adonis Medina. Expectations were high for a fastball exceeding 150 km. However, as the opening lid was opened, Medina was decided to be expelled due to poor skills such as throwing, and the possibility of Panoni’s return arose.
Panoni played for the Triple-A Nashville Sounds of the Milwaukee Brewers this year. He was also getting good grades. He already had experience in the KBO League, so he didn’t need to adapt, so he raised expectations as a KIA’s leading card. However, on the 29th, he received a surprise call-up to the Milwaukee Major League roster. 먹튀검증
It is a difficult situation for KIA, which was interested in Panoni. If it’s difficult for Panoni, he has no choice but to make contact with other pitchers. However, there are cases where Panoni cannot stay in the major leagues, so it seems that the situation will be watched. It is a very flexible situation, but we plan to complete the recruitment as soon as possible.
KIA is in a difficult situation to operate a selection team in June. It is not possible to operate the 5 starters firmly. While Medina was missing, Lee Eui-ri also fell into a retrieval and fell out of Entl to recharge. The team’s performance is also on a downward curve. A new foreign pitcher must play at least one game in the first half. I wonder who will hold the hand of Director Shim and return home.
