Adam Plutko (32), a right-handed foreign pitcher for the professional baseball LG Twins, finally returned to the United States. Plutko, who left Korea ahead of the Korean Series, left a message of support saying, “I will support the LG Twins for the rest of my life.”
The LG club delivered a farewell message, saying that Plutko, who had been devoted to rehabilitation, had finally left the country after consultation with the club. Plutko said through the club, “I cannot express my gratitude to the LG Twins fans who have been a haven for our family over the past two years,” and added, “Thank you so much for creating a special time for the whole family.”
He continued, “For the past two years, I have worked hard to help the LG Twins win, both when I go up to the mound and throw the ball and when I don’t,” and added, “I firmly believe that the LG Twins are building a dynasty. Although it is a very small part of the process, I think it is a blessing to be able to be a part of it. The LG Twins will win the Korean Series. “I will support you for the rest of my life, and words cannot explain what it means to me,” he added.
Plutko, who debuted in the KBO League last year by joining LG, left a record of 26 wins, 8 losses, and an average ERA of 2.40 over two seasons. This season, he appeared in 21 games and recorded 11 wins, 3 losses, and an ERA of 2.41. In particular, he played the role of an ace, winning 11 wins (1 loss) in the first half alone, but in the second half, he pitched in only 4 games and suffered only 2 losses due to a bruised left pelvis.
After his injury in late August, it was initially expected that he would take a hiatus of about four weeks, but his return took much longer. In the end, the return in September and October also failed. LG coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “We must definitely return in early October. Even though I sent a warning message saying, “Otherwise, it won’t be used in the postseason,토토사이트” nothing changed.
In the end, LG and Plutco decided to part ways ahead of the Korean Series. LG, which is currently preparing for the Korean Series at LG Champions Park in Icheon, Gyeonggi-do, will begin its final preparation at Jamsil Stadium starting on the 29th.
