Dan Straily notched his 200th strikeout today, the first KBO pitcher to reach that mark in a season since Hyun Jin Ryu in 2012.

Baseball reference has him at 185K's.  I know they are slow to update, but if they are only missing one game then he struck out 15 in his last outing.  Pretty impressive.

I believe he did.   This was in a tweet by someone who follows that league, and it noted he had a big K day and surpassed 200.

Must be nice to be a guy like Straily who wasn't effective in the MLB anymore but can go dominate in Japan.  If you still feel good, love the game and want to get a few more paydays, it's a good option for a guy like that.

MLB players probably go over there and the KBO and feel like

Apparently baseball reference was two games behind.  Straily didn't strike out 15 in one game, but 11 in one and 9 in another.  12 was his highest total this year.  Just was curious...

It's surprising Manny only has 2 GGs. Though he had to contend with one of the steadiest 3b ever in Beltre, and he didn't do himself any favors moving the same league as Arenado.

Quite honestly, Manny slipped a bit defensively when he started adding bulk and becoming a power hitter.    He’s still a very good defensive 3B, but no longer at the very top.

Despaigne re-signing in Korea.  I missed that he was there last year, seems to be quite a few ex O'x in Korea.

 

Odrisamer Despaigne has re-signed with the KT Wiz of the Korea Baseball Organization.

It's a one-year, $800,000 deal that carries a $300,000 signing bonus, a $500,000 salary for 2021, and another $300,000 in possible performance-based incentives. Despaigne, who spent parts of six seasons in Major League Baseball between 2014-2019, went 15-8 with a 4.33 ERA in 207 2/3 innings this past year in the KBO.

Nestor Cortes is heading back to the Yankees.   Have to admit I was pretty excited about him when Luke talked him about his command and deception.   And I don't mean that as any slight against Luke.  Just enjoyed is analysis and was hoping he was right.

 

Nestor Cortes said on his Instagram account that he's headed back to the Yankees.

The team has yet to announce the signing. Cortes appeared in 33 games with the Yankees in 2019 while posting a 5.67 ERA and 69/28 K/BB ratio over 66 2/3 innings. He made five appearances with the Mariners this past season before going down with an elbow impingement. He became a free agent in October after being outrighted off the 40-man roster.

    • Oh, I don’t agree with it, but after years of having arguments about “sunk costs” I’m left without any other impression.  In my mind, including Davis when the team was horrible, and now Severino or Franco, these guys are taking the roster spot of someone more deserving. Not always, but there’s a pretty good case for someone to take any of those spots.
    • Per MLB rules online, the ball is live if it is “unintentional interference.”
    • He was emptying the tank there.   The first inning or two, he was slower.   The first touch of 94-95 I noticed wasn't until a few innings along, on a 2 out 2 strike pitch.   But he really seemed to pick up steam in the middle. Hartford seemed kind of terrible, but at least he held serve, if not a little more.   On the Either/Or, I'd easily pick Rodriguez still.
    • It was Roth followed by Roth tonight in Delmarva.   I don’t recall that happening before with them.  
    • For the second time in a couple of weeks, an Orioles ball boy touched a fair ball that bounced in his direction tonight and the ball was ruled dead when he touched it. Unlike the other incident, this ball literally came right at the ball boy’s chair. He barely had to move his glove to a spot maybe 18 inches under his lap.  He was mightily embarrassed when he realized his mistake.   The other incident was more egregious, though neither was good and the the ball boy/girl supervisor really needs to call a meeting and let all these kids know it’s an unacceptable mistake.  (I saw another ball boy/girl do this in a recent O’s road game, I believe). That said, here’s my question.  Assume the kid jumps from his chair and the ball either rattles around under the chair or ricochets off one of the legs and back out.   In either instance, Is that a live ball? I think the kid is supposed to try to move the chair to avoid those scenarios, but I’m still curious what the ruling would  be.   By the way, a few innings later the same ball boy did a nice job of snagging a foul ball that had bounced off the side wall and was about to go into the field of play.   The fans sitting over there cheered him, something I doubt they would have done normally but they did it to, quite literally, “cheer him up” after his prior mistake.  Classy move.  
    • I don’t mind it much when the TV guys do it, since you can see the action.  It bothers me more on radio, where you’re dependent on the announcers to know what’s going on.   A skilled announcer can do an interview between the action but describe the game decently at the same time, and minimize the spillover.
