Will Samsung Lions foreign pitcher Albert Suarez (34) be able to smile brightly this year?
Suarez first stepped on the Korean stage last year. The point of his charm was that he was a fireballer with an average fastball speed of 152km, and that he used a variety of pitches. Stable control was also cited as a strength. He was evaluated as a ground ball judo-type pitcher, 카지노. and expected to play an active part in Daegu Samsung Lions Park, a hitter-friendly pitch.
However, Suarez only managed to win once at home. On October 8 of last year, in the final home match against SSG Landers, he won his first win at Lions Park with a good pitching of 6⅓ innings, 2 hits, 4 strikeouts and no runs. It’s not that Suarez couldn’t throw. I didn’t get a lot of wins because I didn’t follow the victory.
Suarez was the ‘icon of bad luck’ in the 2022 season. In front of his name, the modifier ‘Sukrai’ followed. There were days when he lacked scoring support from the lineup, but there were also days when he lost victories by burning the bullpen.
Last year, Suarez digested 173⅔ innings in 30 games and recorded an average ERA of 2.49 with 6 wins and 8 losses. He made 19 quality starts (QS, pitching less than 3 earned runs in 6 starting innings), but was unable to connect with victory. Suarez ranked 4th in ERA among all pitchers in the KBO League, and QS was tied for 7th. It is Suarez who made an impressive enough performance.
