KIA excluded Medina as pitcher Kim Seung-hyun was listed on the first team entry ahead of the match against Hanwha in Daejeon on the 22nd. Except for Medina’s first team of the season. Unlike another foreign pitcher, Sean Anderson, who was canceled from the first team entry for 10 days from the end of last month for adjustment, Medina was a preliminary measure for replacement. 메이저사이트 추천

KIA coach Kim Jong-guk no longer had any attachment to Medina. Coach Kim Jong-guk said at a meeting with reporters before the game that day, “Anderson went down to the level of coordination, but Medina is different. It seems that his skills are limited to that point. He gave me a lot of chances, but I don’t think it’s easy in the first team. He seems to have lost a lot of confidence.” 

Medina, who wore a KIA uniform for a total of $636,000, fell short of expectations with 2 wins, 6 losses and an ERA of 6.05 in 12 games this season. In 58 innings pitched, he struck out 36 but gave up 29 walks. He struggled with an earned run average in the 5-point range in both April (5.87) and May (5.75), but did not rebound in June (6.75) either. 

The previous day (21st) against Hanwha in Daejeon, 2 innings, 2 hits, 3 walks and 3 runs remained as the last game. It was scoreless until the second inning, but after one out in the third inning, he got a hit, and then walked three times in a row and lost a run. Although the number of pitches was only 37, Kim Jong-guk was knocked out early, failing to make it past the 5th inning in the last 3 consecutive games. Director Kim Jong-guk said, “It seemed like it couldn’t be left as it is. It was a situation where the game might not end,” he said. “Yesterday should be considered the last. It was often seen that it collapsed in an instant,” he pointed out. 

Coach Kim acknowledged the fact of the replacement without saying anything back and replied, “We are preparing well overall” regarding the situation of recruiting substitutes. Regarding Medina’s position until a replacement pitcher arrives, coach Kim said, “I will discuss with the coaching staff whether to raise it from the Futures or have a bullpen day with players currently in the first team.” 

KIA, which made the decision to replace foreign pitchers, is also imminent to return to injured players such as outfielder Na Seong-beom and infielder Kim Do-young. Na Seong-beom, who played right fielder in the Futures League match against the Lotte 2nd Army held in Hampyeong that day, scored a double and a triple and played an active role with 2 hits and 1 RBI in 4 at-bats. Kim Do-young, who played as second baseman in two consecutive games, also exploded multiple home runs, recording 5 on-base with 3 hits, 3 RBIs and 2 walks in 4 at-bats. 

Manager Kim said, “Na Seong-beom seems to be in good shape overall, so I will join the first team tomorrow (23rd against KT in Gwangju). Whether or not to register for the entry will be decided after seeing it tomorrow,” he said. He will train a little more and call up.” 먹튀검증
