Adam Plutko, who returned to the United States after playing for LG in the KBO this season, is reportedly looking to return to the Major League Baseball.
“Plutko is looking to return to the MLB after two great seasons in South Korea,” John Heyman of the New York Post wrote on social media on Saturday.토토사이트
Plutko, who first connected with LG in 2022, went 15-5 with a 2.39 ERA that year.
He continued to perform well this season, going 11-3 with a 2.41 ERA in 21 games.
However, a series of injuries limited him to four games in the second half. After being diagnosed with COVID-19 and rehabbing from a pelvic bone contusion, LG manager Yoon Kyung-yeop made the decision to remove Plutko from the lineup before the Korean Series.
Plutko returned to South Korea on March 27. “I can’t thank the LG fans enough for being my family’s sanctuary for the past two years,” Plutko said on his social media accounts, “and for creating a special time for all of us,” he added.
“For the past two years, I’ve been trying to help LG win every time I step on the mound and throw a ball, and every time I don’t,” he said. “I firmly believe that LG is building a dynasty, and I’m blessed to be a small part of that process.”
“I will support LG for the rest of my life, and I can’t explain what LG has meant to me,” he concluded, wishing the team the best of luck in the Korean Series.
Plutko’s wish came true, as LG defeated KT in the Korean Series, ending a 29-year drought.
John Heyman also noted that Plutko’s slider velocity improved during his time in the KBO. “It went from 2486 to 2592 revolutions per minute,” Heyman explained.
