LG’s Plutko departs for the U.S…”I will support LG for the rest of my life”

LG Twins foreign pitcher Adam Plutko, 32, has finally departed for the United States ahead of the Korean Series.

The LG Twins announced that Plutko left for the United States via Incheon Airport on the afternoon of the 27th. Plutko had been rehabilitating, but decided to leave the country after consulting with the club as it was deemed difficult to pitch normally in the Korean Series.

Plutko, who entered the KBO in 2022, served as a one-two punch in the starting rotation alongside Casey Kelly for two seasons. After posting a 15-5 record with a 2.39 ERA in 28 games and 162 innings last year, his rookie campaign, Plutko was re-signed for a total of $1.4 million ($300,000 signing bonus, $800,000 salary, $300,000 incentive).

This season, Plutko went 11-3 with a 2.41 ERA in 21 games and 123 1/3 innings pitched. In the first half of the year, he was one of the league’s best aces, going 11-1 with a 2.21 ERA in 17 games. However, he was sidelined in the second half due to COVID-19, and after returning to the first team on August 26, he was scratched after throwing four innings against the NC Dinos.

Diagnosed with a left pelvic bone contusion, Plutko hasn’t taken the mound since. He was expected to return in time for the end of the regular season, but his recovery was slow and he was unable to pitch in the Korean Series.

Plutko played two seasons in the KBO, compiling a career record of 26-8 with a 2.40 ERA and 250 strikeouts in 49 games and 285⅓ innings pitched. As part of his departure, Plutko posted a video message to fans and teammates on the team’s social media accounts.

Here’s the full text of Plutko’s video message

LG Twins fans, thank you so much for being my family’s home for the past two years. We appreciate it more than words can express.

My son went to school here, and my wife loved Korea, so thank you so much for making it so special for all of us.

To my teammates, you know how I feel about you guys, we’ve worked so hard over the past two years, and when I’ve been on the mound and throwing the ball, and when I haven’t, we’ve been trying to win championships for the LG Twins.

Kim Hyun-soo has set a great example, and I firmly believe that the LG Twins are building a dynasty, and I feel blessed to be a very small part of that process, and to be able to be a part of it, and I’m so grateful. 온라인카지노

Words can’t describe how grateful I am for everything. The LG Twins are going to win the Korean Series, and the team has a one-team mentality.

I will support the LG Twins for the rest of my life, and I can’t explain in words what the LG Twins mean to me. The LG Twins will continue to move forward, and they will win. Go LG Twins! Thank you.
