Elias, 6 week diagnosis SSG “Considering recruiting short-term replacement foreign players”

KBO establishes ‘short-term foreign player recruitment’ starting this year SSG will likely be the first to use it

Elias fights back

Professional baseball SSG Landers foreign pitcher Roenis Elias received a ‘6-week diagnosis.’

SSG is actively considering using the ‘temporary replacement foreign player system’ for the first time in the KBO League.

SSG coach Lee Soong-yong said ahead of the visiting game against the Doosan Bears held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 21st, “Elias has been diagnosed with an internal oblique muscle injury. It is an injury that will require a long time to recover,” and added, “The club is considering recruiting a short-term replacement foreign player.” “I think we may be the first in the KBO League to utilize this system,” he said. 메이저사이트

Elias was announced as a starting pitcher in the match against Kiwoom Heroes on the 18th, but complained of pain in his left side while preparing for the game.

I underwent a detailed examination on the 20th, and damage to my left internal oblique muscle was discovered.

The diagnosis was given at 6 weeks, but it may take longer to return to the first team.

Accordingly, the SSG club decided to actively move to ‘recruit short-term replacement foreign players’.

Starting this year, the KBO introduced a new system that allows ‘if an existing foreign player is injured to the point of needing treatment for more than six weeks, the player is listed on the rehabilitation player list and a replacement foreign player is allowed to play until the player returns.’ .

Substitute foreign players do not count towards the number of substitutions, and injured foreign players can return to the league after at least 6 weeks.

When an injured foreign player returns, the replacement player must be replaced with another foreign player (one registration count will be deducted) or the contract must be terminated through waiver. 슬롯사이트

The cost of hiring replacement foreign players is limited to a maximum of $100,000 per month, the same as existing players.

The KBO established a new replacement foreign player system in response to the criticism that foreign players often leave the team due to long-term injuries and that each team has difficulty supplying players, leading to a deepening power imbalance.

The SSG club said, “Even before Elias was injured, we had prepared a ‘list of foreign players who could be recruited in the short term’ just in case, and were aware of the physical condition of the players,” adding, “It is currently in the review stage, but there is room in the starting lineup.” He said, “We will move proactively considering the team situation.”

The best scenario envisioned by SSG is to quickly recruit a pitcher to replace Elias for 6 to 8 weeks, and for the proven Elias to recover and contribute in the second half of the season. 토토사이트 순위
