“If you have such a strong will, how can you break it?”

Doosan Bears ‘foreign ace’ Ariel Miranda (32) is aiming for the Korean Series. On the 12th, he pitched the bullpen for the first time. Director Kim Tae-hyeong (54) also announced that he would be included in the Korean Series entry. The Korean series sortie is ‘OK’.

Doosan held training at Jamsil Stadium on the 12th. Miranda also threw the ball from the bullpen that day. He threw a total of 33 balls and used a fastball, forkball, changeup and slider. There was no separate check for restraints.

Miranda, who was out due to shoulder fatigue at the end of the regular season, continued rehabilitation. Wildcard matches, semi-playoffs, and playoffs were all missed. Still, Doosan continued to win without Miranda and reached the Korean Series.

Meanwhile, Miranda started catching the ball on the 9th. The distance was initially 30m, then increased to 45m on the 10th and 60m on the 11th. And on the 12th, he threw the ball from the bullpen. It’s not 100% yet, but it’s nice to see Doosan throw the ball normally again.

After pitching, Miranda said, “I’m in good shape because I’ve been through the rehabilitation process steadily. Today, I focused on checking the pitch and finding a sense.

Manager Kim Tae-hyung said, “Miranda isn’t 100% yet. It looks good though. Put it in the Korean Series entry. Miranda’s will is strong. Actually, I almost gave up. After the semi-playoff with LG, I started to touch the ball. They said it will go on. You know it best,” he said.

Then, “I have such a strong will, what can I do? As a manager, I can’t beat him. Even if I fall, I have to fall on the mound.” Miranda, who is showing a willingness to participate in the Korean Series, is a welcome manager Kim Tae-hyung.

I still don’t know how to use it. Manager Kim Tae-hyung said, “It’s inevitable to throw in the Korean Series and if it’s not good, you can use it in the middle if it’s burdensome to have a lot of pitches. I think we’ll know when we pitch one more time. It doesn’t seem to be,” he explained.

He continued, “From a team point of view, Miranda is the best starter. I think so too. I’m figuring out when to start. I don’t know yet.
