Cuba controlled the statistical zone in the World Classics

Taichung, Chinese Taipei, March 6 (PL).- As if it has received to spread the smell of its baseball and, despite recent setbacks, Cuba today has a dominant dominance in each of the world’s Classic leaders.

Neither the absence of the title, nor the participation of the royal training prevents the exponent of the Caribbean island from leading some of the most important sections of the game, counting the statistics of the four organized editions.

Undoubtedly, the foreigner – still active – Frederich Cepeda becomes a special leader, thanks to his reigns in terms of hits (32), RBIs (23) and runs scored (19), as well as doubles with Canadian Justin Morneau (eight. ).

Such figures make Cepeda’s transition the strongest in the history of the main tournament between the nations, so his students still lament that he was not included in the largest team of the Antilles to set up the 8th day of March.

The island is also gaining momentum with the dominance of Yoenis Céspedes (three) in triples and Alfredo Despaigne (seven) in home runs, and former stars of the United States Major Leagues and the professional circuit of Japan in that order.

At 36 years old, Despaigne, the current commander of the Cuban team, will try to confirm himself at the top of the list, after scoring at home in 2009, three in 2013, and the same figure in 2017. The opposition Miguel Cabrera (Venezuela) tied for second place with six, together with Cepeda himself.

Meanwhile, Céspedes, formerly of the Oakland Athletics, Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers and New York Mets, will return to the field after the injury that affected him at the end of the 2022-2023 season of the Dominican League.

All three of his ties came in 2009, with Venezuelans Grégor Blanco and Endy Chávez, Akinori Iwamura (Japan), Gift Ngoepe (South Africa) and Jimmy Rollins (United States), with two apiece.

Cubans miss the traditional heavy statistics like games played and times at bat, in which another Latin exponent shines his light: Puerto Rican Carlos Beltrán (28-95).

With stolen bases, the lead is shared by three cars: Japanese Tsuyoshi Nishioka, his countryman and future Hall of Famer Ichiro Suzuki, and American Jimmy Rollins with five.

According to the official data of the tournament, all Nishioka “scams” in 2006 – were acquitted, while Beltrán and Javier Báez (Puerto Rico), Yasuyuki Kataoka (Japan) and Randolph Oduber (Belgium) were counted as four.

One name is turning heads with the post: Daisuke Matsuzaka. The Japanese bid is tied with Dominican Edilson Vólquez for starts (six), hits (six) and strikeouts (23).

All in all, his countryman Yu Darvish (20), the current pitcher for the San Diego Padres, has the ability to assume the lead, since he will be one of the country’s starters in the upcoming edition. Vólquez still has two dozen retirements per strikeout.

Cuba again achieves prominence in terms of Wednesday’s average, while his team still recalls the execution of right-hander Yadel Marti (0.00 in 12.2 innings) in the tournament in question, although the effectiveness depends on the innings and the innings. a number of ruins have been made.

Meanwhile, veteran Fernando Rodney (Dominican) leads the saves, after keeping his perfect performance in 2013 seven times. Fernando Cabrera (Puerto Rico) and Francisco Rodríguez (Venezuela) are next with five between them.
