NC recruits new foreign pitcher Eric Peddie

Professional baseball NC Dinos recruited a new foreign pitcher. The main character is right-hander Eric Peddy.

The NC club announced on the 20th that it had agreed to a contract with Pedi. He signed on the terms of a down payment of 200,000 dollars, an annual salary of 800,000 dollars, and a total of 1 million dollars (approximately 1.28 billion won).

Peddie is 193 cm tall and weighs 92 kg, and has an average fastball speed of 149 km (maximum 153 km). Along with this, he throws a mix of two-seam, cutter, curveball and changeup.

The club introduced that “the ability to induce ground balls based on stable pitches and various types of pitches is evaluated as an advantage.” Peddie left Nevada State University and was selected by the Washington Nationals in the first round, 18th overall, in the 2014 draft.

He debuted in the Major League Baseball (MLB) in 2017 in a Washington uniform. He has so far played in 102 MLB games (88 starts), digested 454.1 innings, and has an average of 5.41 earned run average with 21 wins and 33 losses. 토토

He was a top 5 starter on the team as Washington went on to win the 2019 World Series. In the minor leagues, he appeared in 89 career games (71 starts), pitched 390.1 innings, and went 23-19 with a 3.69 earned run average.

After signing the contract, Peddy said through the club, “I am very happy to be a member of NC. I want to meet my colleagues as soon as possible.” It is to help win,” he said.

He added, “I am currently working out with experts in Arizona. I will join the team’s spring training next year in the best physical condition and pitching condition.”

Peddie said, “I know about Korean baseball and the KBO league from the Internet and from players who have played in Korea in the past.”

He said, “Fortunately, I heard more about playing on the same team as Eric Thames in 2020.” I have high expectations for Korea,” said

NC team leader Im Seon -nam. He explained the background of the contract. Director Lim expected, “I think he will play an active role as a key member of the club’s selection team.”
