Trevor Bauer (32, Yokohama), who was kicked out of the major leagues for his continued misdeeds, produced good results in his Japanese professional baseball debut.
He showed hope that he could get away from injury and sluggishness, even though it was a second-team appearance.
Although he was virtually kicked out of the major leagues, he threw a symbolic pitch that said he could make a comeback in Japanese professional baseball. 먹튀검증
Bauer (former Dodgers), a new foreigner from Yokohama who won the Cy Young Award in the major leagues in 2020, threw 53 pitches in 4 innings in his first appearance in Japan, throwing 4 hits, no walks, 6 strikeouts and no runs.
He showed that he was approaching the peak pitch, with a maximum speed of 155 km.
In the first inning, he allowed a double on the left fielder with one out, but Takagi struck out with a curve that split vertically, and Yokogawa struck out consecutive swings with a curved slider.
He lost the inning without giving up a point in a run crisis.
In the 3rd inning, he changed gears at once when he was 1st, 3rd base with 1st run. Hiruma and Takagi struck out two batters in a row with six consecutive fastballs.
In this race, he recorded the fastest 155km of the day.
In addition to the cut fastball, he also digested various pitches such as the splitter and changeup, which are new pitches. He was responsible for 4 innings with the number of pitches scheduled. It was evaluated that the right-hander of the Cy Young Young made a debut in Japan that did not go against expectations.
Bauer appeared in the actual game a month after advancing to Japanese professional baseball. Although it was a 2nd team game, not 1st team, it became a big topic just by Bauer standing on the mound again.
Bauer made a surprise announcement of joining Yokohama on the 14th of last month.
He was a problem child who couldn’t find his team after being released from the LA Dodgers. However, he was given a new opportunity in Japanese professional baseball, not in the major leagues.
Bauer had previously expressed his desire to play in Japan. At a press conference on his joining on the 24th of last month, Bauer said, “I am happy to come to Yokohama. Playing in Japan has always been included in what I want to do. When he came to Japan in 2009 on the Collegiate U.S. team, he felt a lot of love for baseball. He wanted to play here someday.”
His 16-day second-team game was his first real appearance since the June 29, 2021 game against San Francisco.
