Shirakawa is expected to start as early as this weekend against the Gocheok Kiwoom Heroes.

SSG, which is worried about its starting lineup, moved quickly after foreign pitcher Roenis Elias suffered a left internal oblique muscle injury that required more than six weeks of treatment. Shirakawa was recruited.

This year, Korean Professional Baseball introduced a new system that allows if an existing foreign player is injured enough to require treatment for more than six weeks.

The player is listed on the rehabilitation player list and a replacement foreign player is allowed to play until the player returns.

SSG decided to utilize this system, and Shirakawa, who played for the Tokushima Indigo Sox of the Shikoku Island League, an independent league in Japan, became the ‘KBO’s first short-term substitute foreign player.’

Shirakawa, who entered the country on the 25th, made 30 bullpen pitches at Incheon SSG Landers Field on the 26th.

All pitch types were checked, including fastballs, forkballs, sliders, and changeups.

Shirakawa, who throws a fast ball exceeding 150 kilometers per hour, said, “My name is Keisho, with the letter K (meaning strikeout).

I will show you a strikeout show.

My strength is my ability to strike out.”

Shirakawa expressed his ambition, saying, “I will strike out a lot while playing in the KBO League.”

Shirakawa recorded 269 strikeouts in 280⅔ innings over 5 seasons in the Shikoku Island League, an independent league in Japan.
