‘115SV’ Excluding Hendricks, 1 big leaguer “Australia is not the strongest power ever” Good news for Korea

The Australian baseball team for the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) has announced the final roster. Australia, however, did not have a top-notch roster.

The Australian national team announced the final list of 30 players on the official SNS on the 10th (Korean time). The roster of the Australian national team, which had been piled up in a veil for a while, was finally revealed.

Australia confirmed the final list of 34 players, including the reserve substitutes. There are 20 pitchers and 14 fielders.

The key players to lead Australia’s pitching are Warwick Saupold (Perth Heat), who played for the Hanwha Eagles in the KBO League, and Aaron Whitefield (LA Angels), a major leaguer. Saupold played for Hanwha in 2019 and 2020 and achieved more than 10 wins (12 wins and 10 wins) in both seasons.

But Australia can’t go to the WBC with the best power. All-Star closer Liam Hendricks (Chicago White Sox), who recorded 115 saves in the big leagues, was excluded early after being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of blood cancer. declared non-participation. 바카라사이트

There was no surprise selection that left the possibility open. Whitefield, the only big leaguer, has strengths in defense and running, but he only started in five games last season and has only eight career big league records. Six minor leaguers were selected for the final roster. However, there is no verified resource except for Robbie Glendining (Kansas City Royals), who hit 22 homers in Double-A last year.

‘MLB.com’ gave a cool evaluation, saying, “This Australian national team does not seem to have the strongest power in the history of the WBC.” However, he also noted his miraculous victory over Mexico 17-7 at the 2009 WBC.

South Korea and Australia were placed in Group B. The first match of the first round of the finals will be against Australia on March 9th. Lee Kang-cheol, coach of the Korean national team, has emphasized the importance of the match against Australia, and he puts all his effort into winning the first match.
