やっほーおはあんず~

今月5日の金曜日に、今季から育成契約への切り替えとなっていた高木京介投手が支配下登録されました。

ということで今回は、高木京介の昨年とオフからここまでの経過について振り返っていきたいと思います。

 

高木京介は2019年シーズンに自己最多の55試合登板で完全復活。昨年も中継ぎの一角としてのフル回転が期待されていました。

その期待通り、キャンプを1軍で完走すると、オープン戦では打ち込まれる試合がありつつも信頼は揺るがず。時間が空いた6月の開幕でも、中継ぎ左腕の2番手的な立ち位置でブルペンに入りました。

最初の出番が訪れたのは、開幕2戦目の7回。2点リードの7回2アウト満塁でバッターボーアという場面で送り込まれます。

ボーアはこのとき4番に座っており、オープン戦や練習試合では怖いのか怖くないのかよく分からない状態。開幕戦では菅野にまったくタイミングが合わず、この日も前3打席は田口から同じような内野ゴロを繰り返し、7打数ノーヒットで迎えていました。

 

本当に怖いならそろそろ打ちそうなところで、一振りで試合を変えられるこの局面。

ピンポイントでぶつけられた高木京介でしたが、開き直った気迫の投球でアウトロー見逃し三振。最大のピンチを切り抜けて、チームの開幕連勝に貢献します。

さらに翌日も2アウト満塁でボーアを抑えた高木京介は、ここからしばらくワンポイントメインでの登板に。1登板10球前後という効率の良さも相まって、開幕から1ヶ月で15登板と、ものすごい勢いでブルペンを回していきました。



しかしこの高木京介のフル回転事情もあってか、チームは7月半ばにトレード加入の高梨雄平を1軍へ投入。さらに若手の大江竜聖も1軍ブルペンに加わったことで、高木京介の登板頻度は減少していきます。

さらに追い打ちをかけるように、自身の股関節の違和感で3戦連続ベンチ外を経験するなど、7月20日からの8月1日までは1試合のみの登板。

8月2日の登板で10試合ぶりの失点と精彩を欠くと、「重症化する前に完治優先」という方針の下、登録抹消となってしまいました。

 

その後は1軍に復帰すべくリハビリを急いだ高木京介でしたが、状態は上向かず時間が経過。チームが圧倒的な力で優勝を勝ち取る中、2軍戦にも投げられない状態でシーズンが終了します。

最終的には17試合の登板で、1S4Hの防御率3.65。防御率の数字だけなら平凡に見えますが、1度あった大量失点が響いたもので、14試合は無失点。

また、人が残したピンチにめっぽう強く、得点圏被打率は.167という高水準でした。

 

故障でシーズンの大半を棒に振るったものの、1軍戦力として確かな実力を示した昨シーズン。ところが、オフに待っていたのは手術からのリハビリに時間を要することを理由とした、自由契約からの育成契約という提示でした。

育成とはいえ、年俸は純粋な成績評価の3000万→2500万と異例の金額。巨人としては、しっかり投げられるようになれば、支配下に戻す気満々なのが伝わってきますが、戻らなければ公式戦のチャンスもないまま首切りが前提。あるいは契約切り替えの段階で他球団にかっさらわれても、それはそれでやむなしというスタンスでした。

高木京介の不在期間に上の2人が大活躍したことで、たとえ万全だとしてもブルペン内の地位が相対的に下がっていたことが響きました。



そんな中で迎えた今シーズンは、キャンプ開始時は3軍のジャイアンツ球場でリハビリ組としてのスタート。序盤はブルペン投球をしただけでニュースになるレベルでしたが、そこからは順調な回復を見せて一足早く宮崎に合流。2軍の練習試合で投げられることが確認されると、1軍の沖縄2次キャンプに途中合流となりました。

それ以降は打たれたり抑えたりの実戦内容でしたが、あくまで重要だったのは「しっかり投げられるように回復していること」。

キャンプ途中に大江竜聖が怪我で帰京したこともあって、高木京介の1軍戦力としての目処が一気に立ち、今回の支配下登録に至りました。

 

このまま行くと、しばらくは戸根千明と1軍のブルペン左腕3番手を争うことになるでしょう。

支配下選手になったとはいえ、立ち位置そのものが大きく変わったわけではありません。今シーズンもチームのため、自分のために腕を振る高木京介の活躍に注目です。

じゃあね~また明日~
