American Major League (MLB) left-handed pitcher Clayton Kershaw (35, LA Dodgers)’s first appearance in the World Baseball Classic (WBC) was cancelled.
Kershaw met with reporters at the Dodgers 카지노사이트 spring camp in Glendale, Arizona, USA on the 18th and announced that he would not be able to participate in the WBC. “I really wanted to play because it was my last chance to be part of Team USA, but I am really disappointed. He tried a lot to find a way to come out, but it didn’t work out,” he said
Kershaw’s team, the Dodgers, initially agreed to try him at the WBC. However, the insurance company blocked him from appearing. MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, reported that it was the insurance company that prevented Kershaw from playing.
The WBC Secretariat has made it compulsory for major league players to purchase insurance in case they are injured while playing in the tournament. Based on Kershaw’s history of injuries in recent years, the insurance company concluded that it would not pay out if he was injured at the WBC.
“It’s a pity that Kershaw can’t be with us,” said US national team general manager Tony Riggins. “But now I’m going to find another player to defend my WBC title,” said general manager Tony.
Kershaw is a ‘living legend’ with 197 wins, 2807 strikeouts, and an average ERA of 2.48 in his professional career. Kershaw said, “While the loss to the WBC is disappointing, it’s not as important as the Dodgers. Now is the time to start preparing for the regular season.”
