The KBO ‘reverse export myth’ continues… ‘Lion on the left’ Rayleigh joins WBC US team

 Brooks Reilly (New York Mets), who was called the ‘left-handed lion’ when he was playing for the Lotte Giants in the KBO League, will participate in the World Baseball Classic (WBC) as the US national team.

On the 10th (Korean time), the US’MLB Network’ announced the list of 30 players of the US national team participating in the WBC through SNS, and Brooks Reilly was named.

Rayleigh was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the 6th round, 200th overall pick, in the 2009 draft. Rayleigh made his big-league debut in 2012. Reilly played for the Cubs for two seasons, but he suffered greatly with a 7.04 ERA in 14 games (5 starts), 1 win and 2 losses, and lost his place in the big leagues.

Rayleigh, who turned to Asia, signed a contract with the Lotte Giants prior to the 2015 season and entered the KBO League, showing a particularly strong aspect to left-handed hitters, and has been called a ‘left-handed lion’. Rayleigh played 11-9 with an ERA of 3.91 in 31 games in his debut season, and succeeded in renewing his contract, recording 8-10 with an ERA of 4.34 the following year.

After that, Rayleigh accompanied Lotte for three more years and played the KBO league stage for a total of five seasons. Despite his good pitching, Rayleigh was not particularly lucky in winning due to Lotte’s unstable defense, but he participated in a total of 152 games and played an active role with an average ERA of 4.13 with 48 wins and 53 losses.

After the 2019 season, Rayleigh returned to the United States without signing a contract with Lotte. The dominant view was that he had already passed his prime, but Rayleigh proved it with his skills. He started with the Cincinnati Reds, played for the Houston Astros and the Tampa Bay Rays, and was traded to the New York Mets. 온라인카지노
