‘After Guerrero JR, Soto too?’ Dominican Crisis ‘U.S.-Japan’

In the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC), which is about to open, the Dominican Republic batting line, which is evaluated as the strongest championship candidate, is shaking.

While Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (24, Toronto Blue Jays), the home run king of the 2021 season, announced his absence, Juan Soto (25, San Diego Padres) is also rumored to be absent.

The Toronto club said on the 5th (hereinafter Korean time) that Guerrero Jr. felt pain in his right knee and decided not to participate in the WBC.

It is reported that Guerrero Jr. felt discomfort in his knee during an exhibition game against the Tampa Bay Rays on the 4th. Therefore, in order to protect the players, the decision was made not to participate in the WBC.

This is a big bad news for the Dominican Republic. Guerrero Jr. is a super star who should play a central role in the Dominican Republic, where there are many superstars. 윈 토토

But the Dominican Republic lost Guerrero Jr. The problem is that the possibility that Soto will not participate in the WBC is being mentioned.

Soto is currently out of the exhibition due to discomfort in his left calf. After the opening of his exhibition game, he recorded a batting average of 0.727 in 4 games, but has not played since the last 3 days.

The joint departure of Guerrero Jr. and Soto is very fatal to the Dominican Republic’s offensive power. There is no substitute for the Dominican Republic, which is full of superstars.

As a result, the evaluation of winning the 0th place can be overturned. This means that the United States or Japan could be the most likely winners of this tournament.
