From Cuevas to Brandon…A baseball outsider, an old hand?

In the wake of a series of releases of foreign players since the beginning of the season, professional baseball teams are bringing back players from their past. After KT reacquired Cuevas, Doosan reunited with Brandon for the first time in eight months. Could it be a stroke of genius? Cuevas was the choice of KT, which has been hovering in the bottom half of the standings since the beginning of this season, to fill the void left by the released foreign pitcher Schuler. Cuevas, who was a key contributor to the franchise’s first unified championship two years ago, returned after a year of playing in the Mexican league and the minor leagues of Major League Baseball after being sidelined last year 온라인카지노 with an elbow injury. Cuevas, who began personal training a day after arriving, is expected to pitch as early as this weekend in a home game. Doosan, which released foreign pitcher Dylan, also reached out to Brandon, who served as a substitute last year, after eight months. Having already tasted the fiasco of bringing in a new player, Brandon was the best realistic option for the club. Brandon is expected to arrive on the 16th and pitch as early as next week. Five foreign players have already been released this season due to injury or poor performance. Of the four who have found replacements, two are re-entry cases. This season, Doosan’s Alcantara, Lotte’s Staley, and Kiwoom Russell all left Korea and returned to their original clubs after one or two years. Experience in the domestic league is seen as a plus, especially as replacements who need to step in mid-season have a shorter adjustment period. It remains to be seen if the reintroduction card will lead to a rebound in performance. Meanwhile, Hanwha, which has dropped two foreigners in the opening two months, is still searching for a replacement for batsman O’Grady, whom it released late last month, and is reportedly not considering a reintroduction.
