While Doosan escaped from a 3-game losing streak, I heard the news of thousands of troops and horses, so I smile.
It was reported that Doosan foreign pitcher Dylan Pyle (27), whose season has been delayed due to a hit to the head during live pitching at the Australian spring camp, is recovering from an injury and speeding up for the first team.
On the 16th, before the game against LG in Jamsil,안전놀이터 Dylan pitched in the bullpen for the second time after his injury at Jamsil Stadium.
While throwing a total of 61 pitches that day, Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop carefully checked each ball at bat. He was nodding his head at a good ball.
Afterwards, coach Lee said, “My physical condition has improved a lot. It is definitely better than the first pitching in the bullpen. A doctor’s opinion that I can go to practice should come out.”
According to Doosan officials, Dylan will be treated at a hospital early next week. If there is no abnormality after checking the injured part again, he will go on the field in a practice match against Yeoncheon Miracle in the independent league on the 20th to check his sense of actual combat.
The timing of Dylan’s joining has not yet been announced, as a doctor’s opinion must come out after a reexamination.
Director Lee said, “Currently, there are no aftereffects or abnormal reactions. I am progressing well step by step,” but showed a cautious stance, saying, “I can go to practice only when I undergo a test and become perfect.”
As Dylan prepares to join the first team, he is also using a specially tailored hat to protect his bruised bone. A guard was attached to the right side of his head. Compared to other players’ caps, you can see that the part where the protector is attached is thicker. It seems to be able to give Dylan a psychological stability effect.
Dylan pitched 114⅓ innings in 26 games (19 starts) at Triple-A last year, going 8-6 with a 4.57 ERA. He has a fastball with a maximum speed of 150 km and a variety of pitches such as a slider, curveball, and changeup. Initially, Doosan expected Dylan to take charge of the team’s one-two punch along with foreign ace Raul Alcantara. Finally, that point is drawing near.
Fortunately, so far, Dylan’s void has been filled by native pitchers. Kim Dong-joo, who is serving as a substitute for Dylan, started two games this year and recorded 1 win, 1 loss and an ERA of 0.90. He is showing good control, allowing only 4 walks in 10 innings.
