Reporter Seo Jang-won = Luis Severino (29, New York Yankees) failed to participate in the World Baseball Classic (WBC) due to opposition from his team.
Hector Gomez, a reporter for Deportivo Z101 in the Dominican Republic, said on his SNS on the 3rd (Korean time), “Severino cannot play for the WBC Dominican national team because he did not get permission from Yankees general manager Brian Cashman.” 먹튀검증
Severino, who made his big league debut in 2015, is a one-club man who only played for the Yankees. He has a record of 50 wins, 29 losses, 2 holds, and an earned run average of 3.39 in 122 career games until last season.
The reason the Yankees refused to call Severino to the national team was because of his injury history.
Severino was injured so often that he was nicknamed ‘glass body’. Injuries to his side, shoulder and elbow were also varied.
He is a pitcher who does his part when he is healthy, but because he is so frequently injured, the club has no choice but to manage players conservatively, and eventually refuses to be selected from the WBC.
Meanwhile, in the Dominican Republic, besides Severino, Luis Castillo (Seattle Mariners) also failed to join the national team due to the club’s opposition, causing setbacks in the composition of players.
