Doosan Bears foreign pitcher Brandon Waddell (30) will be out for more than three weeks.

If Brandon’s absence is prolonged, Doosan may seek to sign a short-term replacement foreign pitcher.

“Brandon was diagnosed with a ‘partial injury to the left subscapularis muscle’ after a cross-examination,” Doosan said on the 25th, “and will be re-examined in three weeks.”

Brandon felt pain in the back of his left shoulder in the third inning of the first game of a doubleheader against the Samsung Lions in Daegu on March 23 and voluntarily took the field.

After visiting the hospital on the 24th and 25th, Brandon was diagnosed with a partial subscapularis muscle tear and was placed on the long-term sidelines.

Even if a re-test three weeks later shows good results, he will not be able to take the mound for about a month.

This year, the Korean Professional Baseball Organization introduced a new system whereby if an existing foreign player is injured in a way that requires more than six weeks of treatment, the team can place the player on the disabled list and use a replacement foreign player until the player returns.

SSG Landers, Kia Tigers, and Hanwha Eagles have utilized this rule to bring in replacement foreign players.

Doosan is also looking at the current situation of foreign pitchers who can be brought in on a short-term basis in case Brandon’s absence is prolonged.

Brandon has pitched well this season, going 7-4 with a 3.12 ERA.

The departure of Brandon, who has been a solid pitcher, has deepened Doosan’s worries. 바카라사이트
