Shirakawa is in a situation where waivers have been announced. Shirakawa can be nominated in reverse order of ranking based on the time of waivers disclosure.

The most active team in recruiting Shirakawa is the Doosan Bears. Currently, Doosan has hired Jordan Balazovic as a substitute for Raul Alcantara. Brandon Waddell is out of the team’s roster due to a shoulder injury. The team plans to fill the vacancy with Shirakawa.

Unless there are any changes, Doosan will announce the recruitment of Shirakawa on Wednesday. “We don’t know what will happen today (May 9). We will not know for sure until tomorrow (May 10),” Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop told reporters at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on Sunday.

Shirakawa, who joined SSG as a short-term substitute for Roenis Elias, pitched in five games in SSG uniform and recorded a 5.09 WHIP (on-base allowance per inning) of 10 pitches and 27 strikeouts in 23 innings.

On June 1, when he made his debut, he pitched five scoreless innings against the Gocheok Kiwoom Heroes, securing his victory. As it was his first professional stage appearance, he was nervous at the beginning of the game, but he overcame the crisis well and pitched a scoreless game.

However, he lost eight runs (seven earned runs) in the first ⅓ inning against the Lotte Giants in Busan on June 7, his second game. He was overwhelmed by the atmosphere at Sajik Stadium and was highly nervous.

Since then, however, he has adapted to the KBO League and displayed good performance. He allowed one run in five innings against the Incheon KIA Tigers on June 13, two runs with 10 strikeouts in six ⅓ against the Incheon NC Dinos on June 21, and five runs (three earned) in five ⅓ against the Incheon KT Wiz on June 27.

“I don’t know because I haven’t seen him in person. But when I saw him throw it on the video, the main weapon was a fork ball. I heard that he was very nervous in Busan, but he threw it five times in the KBO,” Lee said. “He must have stabilized a lot. I’m sure he feels a lot more secure than when he first arrived. I haven’t seen him in person yet, so I think I’ll have to see him.”

If Doosan’s plan goes as planned, both Shirakawa and Balazovic will make their debuts in three consecutive games of the Samsung Lions in Jamsil this weekend. Kwak Bin will start on the 12th, followed by Shirakawa on the 13th and Balazovic on the 14th. The variable is likely to be when Balazovic’s visa will be issued.

“If things go as planned, I think both foreign pitchers will be able to take the mound over the weekend. Shirakawa plans to take the mound on Saturday next week,” he said.

If only variables do not occur, Shirakawa is expected to take the KBO mound once again in Doosan’s uniform.
