Chiba Lotte Marines

  • The Marines were planning to call up Cha-Seung Baek after two Ni-gun games, but decided to delay his promotion by at least one extra game because he struggled in his first Ni-gun appearance on August 4 (against Yomiuri, 5.2 IP, 28 BF, 10 H, 3 BB, 1 HBP, 3 SO, 5 ER). Source: Nikkan Sports 8/5/2015
