Pitcher Park Chan-ho Lee Eul… Darvish, ML 100 win challenge

It is a record that only two Asian pitchers have succeeded in.

Darvish Yu (37), who is active in the US Major League (MLB) San Diego Padres, is challenging for 100 victories in the big leagues. On the 10th (Korean time), he will start in an away game against the Colorado Rockies, which will be held at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, USA.안전놀이터

After showing his overwhelming skills at the Nippon Ham Fighters of the Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB), he stepped into the big leagues by signing a contract with the Texas Rangers through the posting system. After he went through the LA Dodgers, he obtained FA (free agent) status and even wore a Chicago Cubs uniform. And before the 2021 season, he arrived in San Diego, his current team, by trade.

He is leaving an average ERA of 4.10 with 4 wins and 4 losses in 11 games this season. Playing his 11th season in the ML, he won a starter against the Chicago Cubs on the 4th and reported a career-high 99 wins (79 losses). Now, if you take one more step, you will build a 100-win golden pagoda.

If successful, it will be the third record for an Asian pitcher. Nomo Hideo and Park Chan-ho are precedents. On April 21, 2003, while playing for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Nomo stepped on the 100-win mark against the San Francisco Giants. Park Chan-ho took the lead in a game against the Kansas City Royals on June 5, 2005, when he was in Texas.

Since then, Japanese pitchers such as Hiroki Kuroda (79 wins) and Masahiro Tanaka (78 wins) have not reached 100 wins. Ryu Hyun-jin, the “Korean Monster,” is currently recording 75 wins (45 losses). After undergoing Tommy John (elbow ligament splicing) surgery and focusing on rehabilitation, he will pull the reins again after returning next month.

Nomo, who broke 100 wins, recorded 123 wins and Park Chan-ho, 124 wins respectively. Park Chan-ho holds the record for the most wins by an Asian pitcher. Darvish breaks that record. Last February, he signed a multi-year contract with San Diego for 6 years and 108 million dollars (approximately 141 billion won), so he can look hard enough. First of all, the first goal is to break through nine moves and reach 100 wins.
