Yamamoto, who was pushed to the ‘3rd starting’ position due to the poor performance of the Seoul Series, has no match against Lee Jeong-hoo in April

Dodgers starter Yoshinobu Yamamoto is heading to the dugout after finishing the inning in the second game between the San Diego Padres and the LA Dodgers, the official opening game of the 2024 U.S. Major League Baseball (MLB) World Tour Seoul Series, held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Guro-gu, Seoul on the 21st.

Yoshinobu Yamamoto, who joined the Los Angeles Dodgers after being treated as the best pitcher of all time in the Major League Baseball (MLB) free agent market, was pushed down to the third starting position due to a poor performance in the Seoul Series. Accordingly, the two-hit match with Lee Jeong-hoo (San Francisco Giants) scheduled for next month was also canceled.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts announced the regular season starting rotation ahead of the exhibition game against the LA Angels held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California, USA on the 25th (Korean time).

The Dodgers used Tyler Glasnow and Yamamoto one after the other in the Seoul Series, the two-game series that opened the regular season on the 20th and 21st, but adjusted the starting pitching order to match the opening game against the St. Louis Cardinals on the 29th. 스포츠 토토사이트

Glasnow will appear in the first game of the opening four-game series against St. Louis as scheduled, but Bobby Miller, not Yamamoto, will appear in the second game. Yamamoto will appear in Game 3, and Gavin Stone will appear in Game 4. The fifth starter will be James Paxton.

Yamamoto received great expectations as he signed a very large contract with a contract period of 12 years and a total value of $325 million (about 436.6 billion won). However, in his debut game against the San Diego Padres at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 21st, he pitched the worst, allowing 4 hits, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts, and 5 runs in 1 inning. Because of this, the position was moved from 2nd starter to 3rd starter.

As Yamamoto takes over as the third starter, he will miss the three-game series against San Francisco to be played at Dodger Stadium from April 2-4. For the Dodgers, Paxton, Glasnow, and Miller are scheduled to start in order.

Therefore, Lee Jeong-hoo, San Francisco’s unrivaled number one hitter, will not be able to face Yamamoto in this three-game series. Lee Jeong-hoo and Yamamoto, who represent Korean and Japanese baseball, both succeeded in advancing to the major leagues in the last Stove League. Lee Jung-hoo signed a six-year contract for a total of $113 million (approximately KRW 151.8 billion), receiving the highest treatment among Asian fielders. The two have faced each other at the 2019 World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) Premier 12 and the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. However, we have never met on the major league stage. Even in the previous exhibition game, the two-stroke match did not take place. The match between Lee Jeong-hoo and Yamamoto will have to wait until May. San Francisco will play a three-game series against the Dodgers at their home stadium, Oracle Park, from May 14th to 16th. 안전 슬롯사이트
