Kelly from the KBO League is likely to appear in the WBC final… 2nd straight U.S. lead

Merrill Kelly (Arizona Diamondbacks) of the US baseball team from the KBO League is expected to stand on the final mound of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC).

According to Sports Illustrated on the 20th (Korean time), US national team coach Mark DeRosa said, “Kelly can start as a starting pitcher in the 2023 WBC Finals. We need to discuss more.”

The final opponent has not been decided yet.

The USA defeated Cuba 14-2 on the day and advanced to the final.

The winner of the semifinal match between Japan and Mexico on the 21st will compete with the United States for the championship on the 22nd.

Kelly, who started on the 16th in the 1st round against Colombia in Group C and recorded 4 hits, 2 walks, 1 strikeout and 2 runs in 3 innings, takes a break for 5 days and goes back to the mound.

Kelly is a player familiar to domestic fans as well.

Kelly, who jumped into the pro in 2010, moved through the minor leagues and joined hands with SK Wyverns (now SSG Landers) in 2015 to enter the KBO league. He immediately stood tall as SK ace, and by 2018, he had an average ERA of 3.86 with 48 wins and 32 losses in 119 KBO league career games.

Using his performance in the KBO League as a stepping stone, Kelly signed with Arizona ahead of the 2019 season and made his major league debut, writing a ‘reverse export myth’. And he turned his life around by establishing himself as a starting pitcher representing Arizona.

This time, he will be responsible for the selection mound for the WBC finals of the “defending champion” USA, who is challenging for a second consecutive victory.
