It seems that the burden of various clubs for the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC), which will be held ahead of the opening of the regular season, is considerable.
The New York Post, a local media outlet in New York, reported on the 3rd (Korean time) that New York Mets closer Edwin Diaz (29) will not fight in this WBC.
It is known that Diaz will not fight at the WBC due to the request of the New York Mets. Diaz will compete in the WBC with Puerto Rico.
The regular season begins on March 31st. The opening of the WBC is on March 8, and the final is on March 22. As a result, several clubs can be sufficiently burdened. 나르샤 토토
In particular, the relief pitcher’s continuous fight is a part that can be quite nerve-wracking. As a result, it seems that Diaz’s decision to not fight was made.
Puerto Rico’s baseball team has Alexis Diaz, 27, Diaz’s younger brother. It looks like the two brothers will be responsible for Puerto Rico’s back door.
Diaz is evaluated as the best finishing pitcher at the point of welcoming the 2023 season. He pitched 62 innings in 61 games last year, going 3-1 with 32 saves and an earned run average of 1.31.
Diaz, who has a four-seam fastball averaging 99.1 mph, is likely to be responsible for the back door of the New York Mets in the 2023 season as well.
Puerto Rico is in Group D of the first round of the finals, competing against Venezuela, Dominican Republic, Israel and Nicaragua. Group D is considered the group of death.
