KIA Tigers foreign pitcher Mario Sanchez was canceled from the first team on the 26th.

Elbow pain is the cause. Sanchez, who became the winning pitcher with 2 hits, 1 walk (1 walk), 6 strikeouts and 1 run in 7 innings against the Hanwha Eagles at Kia Champions Field in Gwangju on the 25th, complained of discomfort in his right elbow after the game. On the morning of the 26th, he informed the club that ‘the condition improved after waking up’, but abnormal findings were found in the first examination conducted at the club’s designated hospital. KIA decided to conduct a second detailed examination in Seoul on the morning of the 28th.토토사이트

It’s an unexpected bad thing. Sanchez, who signed with KIA as a substitute foreign player last month, made his debut against the Suwon KT Wiz on July 9 and became the winning pitcher with 10 strikeouts and 1 run in 6⅓ innings. In his second appearance, there was a high expectation that he would contribute to KIA’s fall baseball by pitching for more than 6 innings, but after that, he continued his sluggish flow as he suffered from an opponent’s intensive check.

The match against Hanwha was a game worthy of foreseeing Sanchez’s rebound. He threw fewer than 100 balls while pitching seven innings. After the 80th pitch, the pitch dropped sharply, raising concerns, but on this day, after preventing the 4-ball crisis well in the first inning, he showed stable game operation. He gave up a run in the 7th inning, his last inning, but pitched a quality start plus (7+ innings starting, 3 earned runs or less) while filling all 3 out counts. With the victory over Hanwha, Sanchez seemed to have caught the clue to rebound.

KIA, who was relieved by Sanchez’s rebound, was forced to sigh. In the KIA, starting variables such as Yang Hyeon-jong’s sluggishness and Lee Eui-ri’s shoulder inflammation continue. Panoni and Yoon Young-cheol are guarding the starting rotation, but the rest of the pitchers desperately needed a rebound to gain momentum for the top 5. While Yang Hyeon-jong returned from Gwangju on the 26th, Lee Eui-ri could also return in 10 days due to a simple inflammatory finding. There was an expectation that if Sanchez’s rebound was added, he would build a stable starting lineup. However, due to an unexpected elbow pain, this expectation was in danger of being blown away.
