Odrisamer Despaigne WON and remains FIGHTING for leadership in Korea. Cubans in Asia

By Juan Páez

Odrisamer Despaigne’s second season at the Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) continues to establish itself as a superb harvest on the Korean circuit. On the day of this Monday, the Cuban right had its 30th opening of the campaign and took its eleventh victory, in the triumph of the KT Wiz 4 × 2 LG Twins.

Despaigne used 114 pitches in 5.2-episode work. He allowed seven hits and two earned runs, with two walks. Although he got into some trouble and had plenty of running backs, he managed to avoid a high scoring figure and take the award.

The experienced Cuban pitcher, throughout his 30 presentations, accumulates 169 innings pitched. He has allowed 158 hits and 64 earned runs, with 68 walks and 153 fans, with which he already surpassed his limit from last year (152). At this point, he has 11 wins, nine wins and a 3.41 ERA, notably better than the 4.33 he posted in 2020.

With those numbers, Odrisamer occupies good positions in the pitching leaders of the Korean circuit.

Despa owns the third-best strikeouts in the league, a department dominated by compatriot Ariel Miranda (Doosan Bears). He also has the fourth-highest number of wins and the 10th-best ERA in the championship, a box that also has Miranda at the top.

In total, Despaigne has 65 games released in Korea and 376.2 innings of work, with a lifetime record of 26 awards and 17 losses. His KBO lifetime ERA is 3.92 and he has 305 batters retired via third strike.

In terms of timing, Despaigne’s departure was the only game on the Korean circuit. Looking to the Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB), there was no club.
