The top finisher of domestic violence who turned a blind eye to everyone is finally going to Japan
A pitcher who was unable to re-enter the big leagues even at a young age. In the end, he heads to the stage.
The Chiba Lotte Marlins of the Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) officially announced their contract with Osuna on the 9th. The annual salary is 90 million yen (approximately 850 million won).
Oh Sun-na is a promising closer who was once classified as a ‘special’ in the Major League. In 2015, when he was a member of the Toronto Blue Jays. Oh Sun-na, who was only 20 years old at the time, secured the Toronto finish with a strong pitch and recorded 20 saves that year.

I don’t like it,” he said, appealing for unfairness, but the Major League Baseball secretariat suspended him for 75 games as domestic violence was recognized as “accused.”

After many twists and turns, the Houston Astros agreed to a trade that would give up two prospects.

Because neither team wanted to sign a contract with Oh Sun- Local media analyzed that “the past of domestic violence is holding back Oh Sun-na.”
In the end, Oh Sun-na, who returned to his home country Mexico, played as a finishing pitcher in the Mexican league since last year, and eventually Chiba Lotte sent a “love call.” This season’s Mexican league record is 1.35 ERA with two wins and six saves in 12 games 안전놀이터
