やっほーおはあんず~

今回取り上げるのは、無事に隔離期間も終了し、来日3年目のキャンプに合流できているR.デラロサ投手です。

まずは昨シーズンの様子を振り返っていきましょう。

 

デラロサは背番号を「12」に変更して挑んだ昨シーズン、巨人では初めてのキャンプを送るところから始まりました。

ただし、そのキャンプでは実戦登板はほとんどなく、1ヶ月間で2イニングのみの投球。3月のオープン戦になってから、調整を本格化させていきました。

そのオープン戦では安打を集中されるシーンが目立ったものの、全体的にぼちぼちのまま自主練習期間へ。明けての練習試合でも普通に投げていたので、予定通りクローザーとしての開幕になりました。

 

開幕してからのデラロサは、登板5試合で4S1H防御率0.00と絶好調。セットアッパーの中川皓太とともに、盤石の勝ちパターンを形成してくれそうでした。

ところが、間隔が空いて調整登板として上がった6戦目のビハインド登板で、先頭バッターにホームランを打たれたところで緊急降板。脇腹の肉離れを発症し、開幕半月にして戦線離脱となってしまいました。



この故障がそれなりに長引いて、復帰は約1ヶ月半後の8月中旬に。復帰後はほぼ毎試合のように四球や安打で走者を出す展開を背負いましたが、致命的な失点はせず再びクローザーとして機能し始めます。

最終的には優勝が決まるまでクローザーに君臨して、35試合で2勝0敗17S5H。防御率2.56は特筆素晴らしいものではありませんが、「クローザー」としては最高の働きをしてくれました。

というのも、デラロサが登板した35試合のうち、チームが敗れたのは3試合のみ。その3試合も、クローザーとしてマウンドに上がったケースは1回もなかったので、昨年の巨人は「デラロサに繋いでしまえば絶対に負けない」状態でした。

失点したのが8試合あっても、複数失点は1回のみで、それも3点リードの試合で2ランを打たれただけと、一番やってほしいことを理解していたように思えます。

 

そんな中で、今年はクローザーの座がデラロサで安泰というわけでもなく、現状は中川皓太が有力候補として名前が挙がっています。

個人的には去年までの布陣が一番バランスが取れているようにも思いますが、チームとしては日本人投手で固定できた方が、のちのち都合がいいということなんでしょう。

その場合、デラロサはセットアッパーの8回前後に回ることが濃厚ですが、ここではまさしくマシソンのような働きが求められます。

昨年デラロサは、何が変わったのかはよく分かりませんが、前年与四球率が1点台だったのが、急に4.55と四球がかなり増えてしまいました。

クローザーなら最終的に勝った状態で終われば問題ないのに対し、セットアッパーは何点差であろうと1失点が致命傷になり得ます。

3年目のシーズンで、無敵の存在になってくれることを期待しています。

じゃあね~また明日~
