At the same time, I lost a lot of weight and muscle mass, so I wasn’t in a normal condition, and I couldn’t digest many innings. The coach told me It always bothered me because I couldn’t repay the trust you gave me and I couldn’t help my classmates and juniors.”

He continued, “I want to repay the team who trusted and waited for me even in bad shape through this waiting for the phoenix. After showing good shape, I will think about draft nominations and future goals.”
