Kelvin Jiménez pitched for the Doosan Bears in 2010, where he went 14-5 with a 3.32 ERA. He then headed to Japan with the Rakuten Golden Eagles for the 2011 and 2012 seasons. Jiménez, who did not play during the 2013 season, is healthy again and ready to pitch. MyKBO would like to thank him for taking the time to answer a few questions.
MyKBO: What are some of your favorites memories during your time in the KBO?
KJ: The Doosan Bears fans & my teammates.
MyKBO: What are some of the differences on and off the field that you saw between the KBO and NPB?
KG: I think the fields in Japan are a little bit nicer 'cause they have domes. But for the most part both leagues are very similar.
MyKBO: What have you been up to this past season and how are you feeling these days?
KJ: This past season I have been enjoying my family and getting ready for this upcoming baseball season. I begin to pitch for Estrellas in the Dominican Winter League this week.
MyKBO: Would you like to return to the KBO in the near future?
KJ: I would LOVE to return to the KBO 'cause I have a lot of good memories there, especially with the Doosan Bears organization.
MyKBO: Is there anything you would like to say to your fans in Korea?
KJ: The Doosan Bears fans are the best! I hope to see them soon. Hopefully, in 2014.
