Bonn Capitals Signs Former MLB Pitcher

Big news from the former German capital. The local baseball club, Bonn Capitals, caught a big fish to bolster their bullpen. The German champion of 2018 signed former Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher and farmhand Dovydas Neverauskas from Lithuania.

Dovydas Neverauskas with the Toyo Carp

The 29-year old Neverauskas was the first pitcher from Lithuania to make it to the Bigs.
From 2017 through 2020 he played parts of those seasons in the Majors as he had a total of 76 relief appearances. He posted a 1-4 record with a 6.81 ERA.

In 2021, Dovydas was signed by the Hiroshima Toyo Carp but appeared in only one game in the NPB. For the remainder of the season, he pitched fourteen games for the Toyo Carp’s Ni-Gun (minor league) team.

According to the website of the Capitals, Dovydas has decided to join the club because he liked the environment of Bonn as he spent a week in the city and at the ballpark. Of course, Neverauskas is still hoping for a contract in the USA, but for now, he is in Germany. Because he is a European, he is allowed to appear in both games of the weekend.
