Bauer 8 innings KKKKKKKKKK → 2 wins in 1 month, difficult adaptation to Japan ‘Cannot pay 5.2 billion won’

 It was the 2nd win of the season that took 1 month.

‘Geek’ Trevor Bauer (32, Yokohama DeNA Baystars) became the winning pitcher in a month. On the 3rd, he started in an interleague home game against the 2023 Nippon Professional Baseball Seibu Lions held at Yokohama Stadium in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.메이저사이트

Bauer started the Japanese professional baseball challenge for 4 million dollars (approximately 5.2 billion won) a year. After the assault, no major league teams are looking for Bauer anymore. On May 3, against the Hiroshima Toyo Carp, he won his first win in his debut with 7 hits (1 home run), 9 strikeouts, 1 walk and 1 run in 7 innings, and then won 2 wins in exactly one month.

In the meantime, it is difficult to adapt to Japan in many ways, such as going to the second group due to sluggish performance. He feels firsthand the formidable level of Japanese baseball. The beginning of the day was also uneasy. As soon as the first inning started, he walked two batters in a row and started uneasy, but did not hit the right time. He passed the 2nd and 3rd innings with a tripartite offense, but was hit with a left-handed solo shot by Shuta Tonozaki in the 4th inning.

Afterwards, the 5th and 6th innings were blocked with a tripartite offense, and in the 7th inning, he gave up one walk, but did not concede. He gave up a superior solo shot to pinch hitter Sota Hiranuma in the 8th inning. He had a hard time getting on the mound in the ninth as he threw 109 balls through the eighth. Second win of the season as Yokohama won 6-2.

However, it is difficult to see Bauer paying the ransom. He has a 5.59 earned run average for the season. Notably, he pitched 29 innings in five games, allowing nine home runs. He hit a home run every single game without missing a game. However, following the match against Chunichi Dragons on May 27 (6 innings, 7 hits, 2 home runs, 7 strikeouts and 2 runs), it was a game that was satisfactory for establishing quality starts for 2 consecutive games.

Meanwhile, after winning his first victory on May 3, Bauer continued his unique fan communication service, such as posting a plan for ‘Glove Reverse Tribute’ on his Twitter, but that day is not seen. Japanese fans welcome Bauer’s active communication, but they also express regret over his sluggish performance.
