The MLB challenge has become official. He declared, and the club was OK. The US is also interested. It’s been a year since, but the big strand has been caught. That’s all that’s left to do now.
What the hell do you believe in and only be yourself? I looked at my opponent’s record. It deserves it. There is nothing to do against the ‘incumbent’. I’ve tried all sorts of records. Only official matches were counted. Pitchers who have passed through the KBO League and are currently playing in the MLB are also included. It’s not bad either. The record presented is the relative record of the Korean days.

Drew Luchinski (right-hander) Oakland selection (scheduled)
KBO record: 13 hits in 39 at-bats. batting average of 0.333. 4 doubles and 1 triple. 1 strikeout.
It was an Olympic final. It is no different from a one-two punch if the U.S. is selected for the Korean game. There was nothing to push against those two people. Big double, multi-hit. It was all perfect timing. “I don’t remember a swing, let alone a strikeout.” own words. On the other hand, the other hitters were autumn leaves. He struck out nine in five innings. It means that he endured alone.
The same goes for the KBO League. If you are a foreigner, it is an ace level. Besides, it worked so well that I went to ML. I don’t get discouraged at all against such a pitcher. The example case total is 31 hits in 90 at-bats. He has a 0.344 batting average. similar to his own average.
Brooks Reilly (Lefty) Tampa Bay bullpen
22 seasons MLB performance: 1 win 2 losses 6 saves 25 holds ERA 2.68
KBO record: 0 hits in 15 at-bats. 6 strikeouts.
However, there is only one exception. Brooks Reilly, who played for Lotte. It’s ‘zero’ for 15 at-bats. He also struck out 6 times (the most). He was later removed from the lineup. This is the story of director Jang Jeong-seok at the time. “Later on, I gave Rayleigh a rest day unconditionally. This is because the hitting balance is also broken due to psychological pressure. The aftereffects were severe enough to last for several days.”
The total including him is 31 hits in 105 at-bats and a batting average of 0.295. Therefore, among the options, the Yankees and Red Sox should consider (?). It’s because it’s an AL East division team like Rayleigh’s Tampa Bay. but. Yes, it is the bullpen. At best, it should be one at-bat per game.
