 It is a special March of the major league reverse export myth.

Merrill Kelly (35, Arizona Diamondbacks) had a lot going on in March. She participated in the World Baseball Classic as a representative of the United States and was not very good, but on the 22nd (hereafter Korean time) she was honored to start the final against Japan. After he was done with the WBC, he returned to Arizona to fight exhibitions.

Kelly started on the 27th (hereinafter Korean time) in an away demonstration game against the Milwaukee Brewers in the 2023 Major League Baseball held at American Family Field in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, 4 ⅔ innings, 4 hits, 5 strikeouts, 2 walks and 2 runs. She got on the mound after taking four days off from the WBC, but was in good shape.

Kelly left the WBC behind and returned to exhibitions. In this exhibition game, he pitched in two games, lost one, and had an earned run average of 3.86.메이저놀이터 He gave up 6 hits, 7 strikeouts, 4 walks and 3 runs in 7 innings. 0.240 batting average and 1.43 WHIP. It’s safe to say that preparations for the new season are going well after he signed a two-year, $18 million contract. He is now a starting pitcher representing Arizona along with ace Jack Gallen.
