In the first two games of his opening, Shulser raised expectations by showing good pitching with 7 innings and 1 run and 6 scoreless innings.
However, it collapsed after giving up more than 3 runs in all 4 games. In particular, he allowed 5 home runs. Director Lee himself came forward to analyze the reason.
KT coach Lee Kang-cheol is on the mound against LG on the 17th and is calming Schulser.
Director Lee first pointed out that there was an unnecessary movement of the lower body. He pointed out that the unnecessary action of flicking the back foot twice before throwing reduces power.
He emphasized, “Korea is different from the United States. Anyone can hit fastball well. We have to compete with precision.” He continued, “Even if you are right, you have to deal with more batters and accumulate experience fighting opponents.”
Schulser also agreed with the manager’s words, saying, “In the first two games, I threw my strength without any burden, but I wanted to stay in the league longer, and I had a lot of thoughts that I had to do better. answered.
On the 17th, in the match against LG held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul, Schulser started and recorded 9 hits, 5 walks, 3 strikeouts and 5 runs in 5 innings. He gave up the mound when trailing 2-5 and gave up the game 3-7, losing 5 of the season (1 win). His earned run average went from 4.63 to 5.18. Before the game, Schulser had 3 losses in the last 4 games and an average ERA of 6.95.
In the match against Suwon NC on the 11th, which was the previous appearance, he collapsed with 10 hits (1 home run) and 4 runs in 5 innings. He was sluggish enough to allow double-digit hits for the second time in the season.
Schuler threw 96 pitches (60 strikes) that day. He had 46 fastballs, 22 changeups, 21 cut fastballs and 7 curveballs. Most hits came from fast balls like fastballs and cut fastballs. His best speed was recorded at 152 km, but he was not a threat at all. His last two games hit a whopping 19.
The director’s troubles inevitably deepen. He couldn’t just watch Shulser, so he issued an emergency prescription.
Director Kang-Chul Lee shouted “please” to Schuler that day and emphasized that he should keep his advice in mind. Will we be able to see Shulser’s effortless throwing in the next game? Suwon = Reporter Moonyoung Choi /2023.05.22/
