“NPB reverse export was born.” ERA 2.38 Hanshin bullpen directly reported his return to the U.S., signing a contract with the Chicago Cubs

The myth of reverse export also emerged in the Japanese professional baseball (NPB).

Japan’s Full Count said on the 3rd, “Colton Brewer (31) reported the news of the contract with the Chicago Cubs on his social media (SNS).” 

Brewer posted, “I’m happy to join the Cubs in the 2024 season. I’m grateful for every moment I can play. I’ll see you at the Arizona spring camp.”마카오카지노도메인

Brewer was selected by the Pittsburgh Pirates as the fourth pick (122nd overall) in the 2011 rookie draft. He then moved to the San Diego Padres and made his big league debut in 2018. He pitched in 11 games in his first year and recorded one win and a 5.59 ERA in nine ⅔ innings.

Brewer, who moved to Boston through a trade in November 2018, was there for three seasons until 2021. He pitched in 70 games and recorded one win, five losses and a 4.98 ERA in 81 ⅓.

Brewer, who was notified of his release after the end of the season, became an FA, signed a minor league contract with the Kansas City Royals, but was released, and settled for the New York Yankees in a trade through Tampa Bay. However, he failed to play in the big league last year, and was released again in July.

After turning his eyes to Asia, Brewer signed with the Hanshin Tigers, and in 13 games, he pitched 11 ⅓s with one loss and two holds with an ERA of 2.38, helping him win the Japan Series for the first time in 38 years. Having qualified as an FA after the season, Brewer sought to return to the U.S. again and successfully signed a contract with the Cubs.

Full Count said, “I became a team mate with Seiya Suzuki.”
