SSG Landers’ new foreign pitcher Eni Romero (32) told the process of smoothly integrating into the team.
Born in the Dominican Republic, Romero joined the Tampa Bay Rays in 2008 and made his MLB debut in 2013. He subsequently wore uniforms for the Washington Nationals, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Kansas City Royals.
In 2019, he transferred to the Chunichi Dragons of Japan Professional Baseball and passed through the Chiba Lotte Marines before nesting in SSG for a total of $ 1 million in December last year.
SSG, which parted from right-hander Wilmer Font and left-hander Sean Morrimando, who were the main players in the unified championship last year, succeeded in recruiting Romero, whom they had been eyeing for a long time, and is expected to play a part in the starting lineup this season.
On the morning of the 10th (local time), Romero, who met with reporters at the Jackie Robinson Training Center in Vero Beach, Florida, USA, said메이저사이트, “I’m slowly getting closer to my colleagues here. When I first came, Choo Shin-soo remembered me and spoke to me first. Thank you for being friendly.”
Romero, who has experienced both the American and Japanese leagues, said, “I first started playing baseball in the United States, but I also learned a lot in Japan. It was a moment of great experience in my life.” But in the process, I learned how to solve the game.”
On the other hand, “The spring camp experienced by the Japanese team was difficult to arrange physical strength because we trained all day without a day off,” he said. There seems to be,” he added.
Romero, who hadn’t had much of a relationship with Korea, listened to Ivan Nova’s advice after signing with SSG.
Nova, who has 90 victories in the big leagues, joined SSG with great expectations last year, but was released during the first half due to overlapping injuries and sluggishness.
Romero said, “I’m usually close with Nova, but after the news of my contract with SSG came out, they contacted me.” “I was introduced to various types of Korean batters, Korean culture, and food. He asked me to do it,” he introduced his conversation with Nova.
Romero, who wants to play as many innings as possible without injury in the KBO League, said, “I want to learn from the pitching of Kwang-Hyun Kim, the best pitcher in Korea.”
At the same time, he emphasized, “I haven’t set a target for numbers, I just want to finish the season in good health. I want to contribute to the team accumulating as many wins as possible.”
