“I will show you with my skills.”
NC new ace Eric Peddy (30) recorded 21 wins, 33 losses and an average ERA of 5.41 in 102 major league games. He was a 5 starter for the Washington Nationals last year. When Peddy came to the market, there were teams interested, and NC was the winner. NC pointed to Pedi as the right person to fill the void of Drew Luchinski.
The major leagues start spring camp around February 15th. Pedi who is accustomed to this routine may not be accustomed to group training starting on February 1st. However, Pedi is rather good. He said, “I am satisfied with training with the players” at NC’s spring camp site, Lake Rid Annex Field in Tucson, Arizona, USA.
Peddy happens to be based in Arizona토토사이트. At the time of his interview, his father also visited the scene. Peddie said, “Originally, he trains individually at this time, but then he can’t even get PFP (defensive fungo training) and live pitching (pitching with the batter standing). Good part. It’s so nice to add Korea to my baseball career.”
Pedi mixes two-seam, cutter, slider, changeup, and curveball with a fastball that exceeds 150 km. However, ahead of his Korean debut, he is sharpening his new weapon. Peddie said, “I’m trying to change the curve to a slub.” He is a slider with a big angle like a curve. “After two strikes, it is difficult with just one curve. He tries to throw sliders that fall a lot.”
In fact, when there is light in Peddy, there is also shadow. Health is at risk. In her elbow surgery career, injuries both large and small are frequent. Even though he was consistently in the major leagues from 2017 to last year, he only ate 454.1 innings. He only pitched as a starter and pitched just 133⅓ innings and 127 in his last two years.
NC and Peddy, of course, are in the position that this part is not a problem. “I know the worries about injuries,” said Peddy. However, he prepared well in the off-season. I will show you my skills.” At the same time, he said, “I moved from Arizona during the off-season, and I went to the health center I wanted to go to and exercised.”
NC coach Kang In-kwon hinted at the possibility of putting Chang-mo Koo in the next game, not the opening game, for a healthy full season. Starting the season like that, it was explained that there were no appearances on Tuesdays and Sundays for the month of April. Moreover, with Pedi, director Kang’s idea can gain momentum.
Peddie said, “Even in the major leagues, starting the opening game is an honor. It is expected. And I believe in the NC Data team. You shouldn’t throw less than the video. We will go through the season trusting the data team.” Peddy’s performance is one of the important factors that will determine the fate of NC this season.
