Adam Plutko (32), a right-handed foreign pitcher for the LG Twins of the Korean Baseball Organization who was unable to pitch in the Korean Series due to a pelvic contusion, left South Korea on the 27th and returned to the United States.The LG Twins announced on their social media that Plutko, who has been rehabilitating, left the country in consultation with the team and thanked fans for their support.”I can’t thank the LG Twins fans enough for being a sanctuary for my family over the past two years,” Plutko said, “and for making it such a special time for my entire family.”
“For the past two years, every time I’ve taken the mound and thrown a ball, and every time I haven’t, I’ve tried to help the LG Twins win,” he said. “I firmly believe that the LG Twins are building a dynasty, and I’m blessed to be a small part of that process.” “I’ll always support the LG Twins, and I can’t explain what they’ve meant to me,” Plutko concluded, wishing them the best in the Korean Series.Plutko, who made his KBO debut in an LG uniform last year, finished his two-year career with a 26-8 record and a 2.40 ERA.
This year, he was an ace with 11 wins (1 loss) in the first half of the year, but only lost two games in the second half of the year in four appearances.Last year, he went straight into the playoffs without pitching in a game after taking more than 20 days off due to a bursitis problem in his back.He insisted on going straight to the playoffs with his own rehabilitation method, and the LG coaching staff believed him, but it didn’t work.This year, he went down early with a thigh injury in late August and was diagnosed with a left pelvic contusion at the hospital and was sidelined for four weeks.With plenty of time left before the Korean Series, Plutko’s lack of commitment prompted LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop to declare that he would not be on the roster for the Korean Series at all.
The club held talks with the player, but LG’s callous response was that they weren’t going to play him twice.The team is currently preparing for the Korean Series with training camp at LG Champions Park in Icheon, Gyeonggi-do, before moving to Jamsil 바카라사이트 Stadium in Seoul on the 29th for a final tune-up.
