‘Japan’s ace’ Yoshinobu Yamamoto (24. ORIX) was excluded from the entry as a player subject to special exceptions for fever.
Yamamoto was originally scheduled to start against the Nippon Ham Fighters at the Kyocera Dome on the 20th.
However, he complained of fever before the game, and his registration was suddenly canceled. The Nippon Professional Baseball Organization (NPB) is running a special entry only for feverish players after the corona crisis.
Yamamoto has started 6 games so far and recorded 3 wins and 2 losses with an average ERA of 2.35 and played an active role as an ace. In April, he suffered two consecutive losses, but on the 13th against Softbank (Kyocera Dome), he led the team with an ace, winning his third game with 3 runs in 6 innings.
It is not yet known whether he has a corona infection.메이저사이트
The Orix team decided to undergo an inspection first without an official announcement.
In addition, Marwin Gonzalez (34), a new foreign hitter who has hit 7 homers so far, received a treatment at a hospital in Osaka on the 19th and was diagnosed with a fracture in his right second finger, and his registration was canceled.
Instead, Takeyasu Daichi (28) registered as an alternate designated player for the special case 2023. The preliminary selection was also changed to Takeyasu. Also, infielders Yamada (31) and Nishino (32) were registered.
