The Atlanta Braves, who play a bullpen game in Game 4 of the MLB World Series, selected left-handed rookie Dylan Lee (27) as the first runner. Director Brian Snicker explained the background.
Before Game 4 of the World Series against the Houston Astros at Truist Park in Atlanta, Georgia, USA on the 31st (Korean time), Snicker said, “It was impressive. He has the ability to throw strikes, and his changeup is real. Have confidence and confidence It gave me the confidence that it’s good too,” said Lee.
Picked by the Miami Marlins in the 10th round of the 2016 Draft, Lee was released from the team in March 2021 and joined Atlanta as a minor league free agent in April. Triple-A Jacksonville made 35 appearances and posted a 5-1 record with a 1.54 ERA. He appeared twice in the Major Leagues and conceded two runs in two innings.
Major League Baseball said that he was the first pitcher to make his major league start in a World Series, and he has the record for the fewest regular season appearances among any World Series starting pitcher.
Snicker said that Lee was notified of the start on the day of the match. It was a player-friendly choice. “If he had notified the starter in advance and the facts were known, he would not have slept properly due to the pouring text messages and phone calls,” he explained.
When the manager called, Li, who entered the manager’s office with a worried expression, was also notified of the starting pitch and could not hide his joy. “I heard that his family is here, and his fiancee and parents are also here,” he said, allowing the family to witness the historic moment.
Snicker said, “He said he didn’t have to play until five innings. Just catch the out. That’s what we want,” he said, expressing realistic expectations for Lee.
Atlanta has established a stable win-win team with AJ Minter, Luke Jackson, Tyrell Mahek, and Will Smith. It depends on how you get there. Snicker said, “There are several options,” and announced that it is preparing several alternatives.
Meanwhile, Atlanta’s Eddie Rosario (left fielder) Freddie Freeman (1st base) Ozzy Alvis (2nd baseman) Austin Reilly (3rd baseman) Jacques Pederson (right fielder) Travis Dano (catcher) Adam Duvall (center fielder) Danceby Swanson (shortstop) Dylan Lee’s lineup was announced.
