In the first year, he strongly secured a starting position. In the second half of his second year, he boasted of his presence as the best ace in the league.
How about in the third year of renewal of contract after many twists and turns? I have a good feeling. I have enjoyed the joy of my son since the beginning of the new year.
Charlie Barnes of the Lotte Giants recently got a son, Beckham. He is the second child after his 3-year-old daughter, Campbell. In the photo released by his wife Sidney, the Barnes family is full of joy. Former and incumbent colleagues including Jack Rex, Glenn Sparkman, Jeon Joon-woo, Na Kyun-an and Lee Min-seok congratulated him.헤라카지노주소
Barnes had a long thought ahead of his stay at Lotte this time. He has won more than 10 consecutive seasons, and he ranks second in 356 ⅔s (357 innings by No. 1 KT Ko Young-pyo). He has played more innings than David Buchanan of the former Samsung Lions, Yang Hyun-jong of the Kia Tigers, and Casey Kelly of the LG Twins.
He is also sixth with an ERA of 3.46 among pitchers who have played prescribed innings for two years. Notably, his ERA of 2.05 in the second half of the 2023 season surpassed that of Eric Peddy (former NC) and his teammate Aaron Wilkerson (Lotte). He also had 75 strikeouts in the second half of the season, ranking fourth overall after Peddy (100), Wilkerson (81) and Cuevas (77). His pitching and ball control skills, which are as sharp as he is just 30 years old, have reached their peak.
Lotte manager Kim Tae-hyung requested the team to renew contracts with two foreign pitchers as soon as he took the helm. “Banz’s ability to handle innings and pitch are the first-tier issues in the league,” Lotte said.
He played nine big league games (38 innings, three losses and 3.92 ERA) with the Minnesota Twins in 2021, right before he returned to Korea. He could have challenged the Major League like Pedina Buchanan and received a love call from the Japanese baseball. However, Barnes chose to stay at Lotte. He signed a total of 1.35 million dollars (guaranteed 1.2 million, incentive 150,000). Lotte also renewed its contract with Wilkerson for a total of 950,000 dollars, and is preparing for the new season with stable starters ranging from Wilkerson, Barnes, Park Se-woong, and Na Kyun-an.
Lotte announced reform and reform following the appointment of its general manager Park Joon-hyuk and manager Kim Tae-hyung after experiencing failure in the fall baseball for six consecutive years. Will Barnes be the vanguard of Lotte that has changed.
