Rocky Sasaki (22), who was recently selected as the best player among non-major leaguers in the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) by Baseball America, has a showcase.

On the 21st (hereinafter Korean time), Japan will play against Mexico in the semifinals of the tournament at Rondipo Park in Miami, Florida, USA.카지노사이트

This is the stage for Japan to advance to the finals and Sasaki’s major league showcase. This is because the starting pitching against the Czech Republic did not hold much significance.

Previously, Sasaki started on the 11th in the third round of Group B of the first round against the Czech Republic. At that time, Sasaki won with 2 hits and 1 run in 3 2/3 innings with 8 strikeouts.

Now, Sasaki will face the Mexican batting line that Randy Arozarena (28), who is showing amazing form in this tournament, is holding out. Therefore, this quarterfinal match is a test bed.

Sasaki is a super-class starting pitcher with a 102 mph four-seam fastball and a 95 mph splitter in Japanese professional baseball. Last year, we achieved a perfect game.

As a result, Sasaki was evaluated by BA as the best among non-major league players who participated in the WBC. It is certain that he will advance to the major leagues in the future.

Sasaki got a chance to prove his worth in this semifinal match. It is noteworthy whether Sasaki will catch the eye of a major league scout and lead Japan to the finals.
