“I’m gay, but my dream never stops”… Confessions of an ML Prospect

“I am a homosexual, but I am a professional player. I will not stop to realize my dream.”

On the 20th (Korean time), MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, wrote about Chicago White Sox pitcher Anderson Comas (23). Comas revealed on his personal social media account that he is gay.

Comas said on his personal SNS, “I did this (disclosure of homosexuality) because I wanted to inspire people like me. You must fight for your dreams. And you have to believe in yourself and challenge yourself.”

Comas is currently playing in the minor league rookie league under the White Sox. He played as an outfielder after joining the team in 2017, but changed his position to a full-fledged pitcher from last year. As a left-handed pitcher, he is gaining experience as a pitcher, primarily pitching in relief.

As Comas’ courageous confession continued, the team and colleagues continued to cheer. 바카라

Chris Getz, assistant general manager for the White Sox, said in an official statement: “Comas spoke to us of the news last year. I was really happy that the player felt comfortable sharing the news with us. Not only me, but also my teammates responded with support and congratulations. I am proud that Comas has revealed his personal story on social media.”

Meanwhile, after four seasons as an outfielder in the minor leagues, Comas turned to pitching ahead of last season. In the rookie league last season, he recorded 1 win in 11 games, an average ERA of 6.35 and 13 strikeouts in 11⅓ innings, and a WHIP (on-base percentage per inning) of 2.03. He is still in the stage of adapting as a pitcher. Although his pitching is shaky, he is evaluated as a prospect with potential for his growth in that he has the ability to strike out as a left-handed pitcher.
