Right-hander Jack Flairty (28), who joined the Baltimore Orioles, expressed his feelings.
In an interview ahead of the home game against the Toronto Blue Jays held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 3rd (Korean time), Flairty said, “I am happy to be here. Learning new faces. I am really looking forward to it,” he said, expressing his impressions of the transfer.
He was traded from the St. Louis Cardinals to Baltimore before the trade deadline the day before. The Orioles acquired him in exchange for left-hander Drew Rome, infielder Cesar Prieto and right-hander Jack Showalter. A day later, he will be selected for the final game of the series against Toronto.
He, who experienced the trade for the first time, said, “Something was strange. He continued to watch, waiting to see what would happen. At the same time, he had to prepare for the next start,” he said, expressing his feelings about the trade.
It was not easy for him to leave St. Louis, where he had been for many years. But at the same time, new challenges await in the new team.
He said, “It’s really cool. He is showing incredible form and is running number 1 in the district. This is a really special team. I am so lucky to be in a place like this,” he said, delighted to come to Baltimore, which is leading the district.토토사이트
The American League East Division, to which Baltimore belongs, has a reputation for being particularly difficult for pitchers. It may be a difficult challenge for him.
When asked what he thought about this, he said, “All the teams in this league are good teams.” “If any team takes it lightly and attacks, it will not be able to avoid an early rout. He continued, “If I play every game with the same mindset as Game 7, it will be fine.”
Flairty is 7-6 with a 4.43 ERA in 109 2/3 innings in 20 games this season. The 109 2/3 innings is the most since 196 1/3 innings in 2019.
“The season is a series of ups and downs. There are hard times and there are good times. And I am learning from the hard climbs. Some problems have been resolved, and now all that remains is to properly show in the game.”
