Lotte ‘foreign ace’ Dan Strayley (35) lost his face in the first appearance of the demonstration game. Something is still out of balance.
Strayley started the match against Samsung in the 2023 KBO League demonstration game held at Daegu Samsung Lions Park on the 20th, recording 2 innings, 6 hits, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts and 4 runs. It’s a game where something doesn’t go your way.
The number of pitches reached 61. After giving 1 run in the bottom of the 1st inning, he gave 3 more runs by allowing concentrated hits in the bottom of the 2nd inning. The top speed of the fastball reached 145 km/h. He used a slider (17 pitches), a changeup 온라인바카라(7 pitches), and a curveball (5 pitches).
During the Okinawa spring camp, he showed good pitching. Strayley, who came to Korea early apart from the squad, built up his body by pitching in Sangdong. I went out for the first time in the demonstration game that day. The content is not very satisfactory. If you think of it as a ‘process’, there is still time.
In the top of the first inning, the batting line scored two runs and started pitching with a lead. At the end of the first inning, he gave Lee Seong-gyu a left-handed hit and Jose Pirella a grounder on third base, and was driven to second base with two outs. It was 2-1 with a timely hit by Oh Jae-il.
At the end of the 2nd inning, Kang Han-wool doubled left, Kim Tae-goon hit right, and Kim Dong-yeop hit left-handed in a row, allowing a 2-2 tie. He induced Kim Jae-sang to ground to second base and caught the runner on first base from second base, but one company and 1st and 3rd base continued.
Afterwards, he sent Ja-wook Koo on a walk and was driven to the base with 2 outs. Here, Pirella hit 2 RBIs in a timely manner and allowed a 2-4 reversal. He walked Jae-il Oh again, but ended the long second inning by striking out Won-seok Lee. And in the third inning, he passed the mound to Seo Jun-won.
Strayley, who played for Lotte in 2020 and 2021, left after the 2021 season but returned during the 2022 season. At the end of last season, he went 4-2 with an earned run average of 2.31 in 62.1 innings in 11 games.
After that, he signed a contract for a total of $ 1 million in 2023. He is a player who should play an important role for Lotte to take off this season. His first rehearsal stage was slightly crooked.
