Samsung Lions foreign pitcher Albert Suarez, who was absent for a while due to personal reasons, returns to the team and prepares for a starter sortie.
After the first game메이저사이트 of the season against the Doosan Bears, which was scheduled to be held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 25th, was canceled due to rain, Samsung coach Park Jin-man said, “I will have to discuss it with the pitching coach one more time, but Suarez plans to pitch against the KT Wiz in Suwon on the 28th. has,” he said.
Suarez performed outstandingly with an average ERA of 2.49 in 30 games last year, which was his debut season in the KBO. Seung-woon did not follow and he only won 6 wins, but as can be seen from the 19th inning of the quality start, he showed stable pitching every time he started.
But this year is off to a bad start. In three games after the opening, he failed to do his part with an average ERA of 7.20 with one loss. Except for the LG Twins on the 9th, 7 innings, 6 hits, 3 walks, 2 strikeouts and 2 runs, the other 2 games did not meet expectations.
On the 17th, there was even a gap in his departure to the United States due to personal circumstances. He recently returned to the team, but with Suarez missing, Samsung’s starting rotation management had no choice but to suffer. Samsung lost 4 games in a row and fell to ninth place, 0.5 games ahead of the lowest-ranked Hanwha Eagles.
Samsung desperately needs foreign pitchers to fight. Ace David Buchanan also got off to a bad start with an average ERA of 4.05, 1 win and 2 losses in 4 games this year, and Suarez, who has returned, needs to show improved condition and pitch to prepare a foothold for a rebound.
The sluggishness of Samsung’s domestic pitchers is also why Suarez’s role is important. Manager Park Jin-man said, “Baek Jeong-hyun started two times last week and needs more rest, and Won Tae-in is not in good shape due to a cold.” I have a schedule,” he explained.
