SSG announced on July 27 that it has signed former Detroit Tigers pitcher Drew Anderson for an annual salary of $570,000 to replace Robert Duggar.

Dugger, who signed with SSG for a total of $900,000 this season, was expected to be a key part of SSG’s starting rotation alongside Loenis Elias.

He seemed to bounce back with a five-inning, three-hit, one-strikeout, one-run performance against KIA on April 18, but then collapsed again against Lotte on April 24, giving up seven runs on nine hits with two walks and two strikeouts in 2⅔ innings.

After waiting for Dugger to rebound, SSG finally pulled the trigger. They released Dugger and brought in Anderson, 안전놀이터 who has experience in the Major Leagues and Nippon Professional Baseball. “It’s not easy to replace a foreign pitcher at this point in time,” said SSG manager Kim Jae-hyun.

Anderson, SSG’s newest acquisition, is 19-3 with a 6.50 ERA in 44⅓ innings in the major leagues, 39-33 with a 3.47 ERA in 125 games (570⅔ innings) in the minor leagues, and 7-5 with a 3.05 ERA in 34 games (115 innings) in Nippon Professional Baseball.

He has both major league and Nippon Professional Baseball experience.

SSG said, “Anderson has an excellent physical condition at 190 centimeters tall. He has a fastball that tops out at 156 kilometers per hour (152 average) and has a variety of pitches, including a curveball with great drop, a cutter, a slider, and a changeup. “He is a starting pitcher with a lot of upside,” said Kim.

“Anderson has been on our radar for a while now. He’s been on our radar for a while now, and we’ve been watching him closely and thinking very highly of him. We think he’s a very good pitcher because he has good velocity, good stuff, and a good fastball.

He has done a good job against hitters with changeups, so we’re excited to see what he can do.”

SSG plans to apply to the KBO for a player registration disclosure after Anderson’s medical checkup. 온라인카지노사이트 “We don’t know specifically when he will be able to join the team yet.

It depends on how we utilize him,” he said.
