【⚾️ NPB X KAISPO 💫】No.31
⭐️KAISPO Total No. #1012 (in English）
The Yomiuri Giants has reached a preliminary agreement with Angel Sanchez, Nikkan Sports reported yesterday. The official announcement will be made after a medical checkup.
The 30-year-old is a right-handed pitcher, who went 17-5 with a 2.62 ERA in 28 game appearances in the Korean league last season and played for the Pittsburg Pirates in 2017 where he had 1 win in the big league.
The Yomiuri made a success to get Sanchez in an acquisition battle with the Major League clubs.
Tatsunori Hara, Yomiuri manager, highly evaluated him, “His pitching form and control are excellent. He has a very hungry spirit.”
The right hander throws fastball and cut ball breaking well at the hand of batters, giving up only 2 homers in 28 games last season. He will be expected to be in the starting rotation throughout the whole season.
The Yomiuri is a champion club in central league last season. Their ace pitcher, Shun Yamaguchi, is aiming at the MLB this winter. Also, they could not get the Rakuten starter, Manabu Mima in a free agent market. They need to reinforce their starting pitching staff. The central champion has already acquired Gerardo Parra and Thyago Vieira from America.
